Day 3’s celebs at Cannes included Soo Joo Park, looking resplendent in Chanel Métiers d’art 2019–20 with accessories and jewellery from the brand; make-up by L’Oréal Paris. It’s one way to keep both brands that you are an ambassador for happy. Along with Brazilian model Luma Grothe in a gold Zuhair Murad haute couture spring–summer 2020 jumpsuit, they attended the première of Stillwater, which received a five-minute standing ovation. Grothe’s hair was by Stéphane Lancien and Val Garland was responsible for her make-up. Jodie Turner-Smith turned heads in a stunning Gucci gown.
   Tilda Swinton donned Chanel spring 2021 for the screening of The Souvenir Part 2.
   Earlier photocalls saw Elsa Zylberstein for Un certain regard, Rebecca Marder for Une jeune fille qui va bien and Naama Preis for Ahed’s Knee, all in Chanel.

Reebok and Daniel Moon indulge in colour with Major Reebok capsule collection

Filed by Lucire staff/June 18, 2021/21.48





Daniel Moon, the proprietor of Hair Los Angeles and one of the world’s best known colourists, has brought his love of colour into a capsule-collection collaboration with Reebok, dubbed Major Reebok, releasing on June 24.
   Major comes from Moon’s nickname, Major Moon, referencing his time in the US Marine Corps, and has appeared on some of his products already, including the Major Apron and Major Moonshine, a hair glitter product.
   The collection features a new take on Reebok’s Classic Leather Legacy and Club C Legacy designs.
   Moon, known for encouraging distinctive hair colours for self-expression, aligns with Reebok’s plans to be inclusive.
   ‘The sock liner of the Classic Leather Legacy is a photograph of an actual hair piece that I worked on,’ said Moon. ‘It serves as a blueprint of the shoes.’
   The Classic Leather Legacy’s colour palette was inspired by his most requested hair colours, and the leather material reminds him of a shaved head, says Reebok.
   The Club C Legacy’s bright green and pink colours ‘represent the same feeling of hyper freedom that my hair art brings to my clients. They instantly go in your bloodstream and change your mood to a new tier of exaggerated fun,’ he says.
   The Major Reebok Classic Leather Legacy retails for US$80 and the Club C Legacy for US$100. Both include one pair of fuzzy laces. Sizes range from US 3½ to 15.

 


Chiara Ferragni becomes GHD’s first global brand ambassador

Filed by Lucire staff/June 2, 2021/22.16


Chiara Ferragni, who has regularly featured in Lucire’s pages in both print and online, is the new global ambassador for GHD.
   Ferragni, who originally came to the industry’s notice as a blogger, has since branched out into designing and Instagramming (where she has nearly 24 million followers). As a fan of GHD, she said in a release: ‘I’ve used GHD for years and have always shared my good hair days with my community. I’m so pleased to announce that I am the international brand ambassador for GHD.’
   It marks the first time GHD has appointed an international brand ambassador. The announcement coincides with the 20th anniversary of the brand.
   ‘We are thrilled to welcome Chiara Ferragni as GHD International Brand Ambassador during our 20th anniversary year—she is the ultimate global fashion trendsetter who speaks directly to the social media generation and our digital-savvy consumers,’ said Jeroen Temmerman, CEO of GHD. ‘With Chiara’s unparalleled global appeal and GHD leading technology, we are confident this new partnership, and impending new product launch, will help GHD to deliver more good hair days around the world.’
   GHD’s chief marketing officer Montse Passolas added, ‘Chiara Ferragni is an entrepreneur with an undeniable spirit, attitude and unique sense of style—she perfectly embodies the essence and energy of GHD. Chiara was a natural choice for GHD to become international brand ambassador. Chiara loves the brand and genuinely uses it to style her hair, so that it is always flawless and in great condition. She relies on ghd for safer for hair heat styling and long-lasting sleek results.’

 


GHD celebrates 20th anniversary with limited-edition Couture collection

Filed by Lucire staff/April 15, 2021/11.47




Time really has flown, with GHD (Good Hair Day) celebrating its 20th anniversary. The company commemorates this milestone with a limited-edition Hair-itage Couture collection.
   In its 20 years, GHD’s R&D laboratories have developed tools for hair heat styling that are now used by 200,000 stylists around the world, and sold in over 30 countries. GHD sells 2 million tools every year, and has won over 300 beauty awards.
   The tools maintain a consistent 185°C heat, which is the optimum temperature for styling without compromising hair health.
   It wasn’t just the stylists who told us that GHD was on to a winner, but those early adopters who then told their friends—we hadn’t seen any stylers get that level of word of mouth. When Lucire published its first print editions, GHD was there as a major supporter, directly from its head office in the UK—people who recognized that the two brands were in sync.
   And no, this isn’t a paid spot—we’re as excited about this 20th anniversary as they are.
   The Couture range comprises the Platinum Plus styler (NZ$410 with chrome heat-resistant bag), the Helios hair drier (NZ$340) with 30 per cent more hair shine versus naturally dried hair; the Gold styler (NZ$350, also with chrome heat-resistant bag); and the Style gift set (NZ$59), an exclusive chrome wash bag with mini paddle brush, travel-size Bodyguard heat protect spray, and two GHD silver clips. All are available through GHD élite salons and ghdhair.com/nz.

 


Beauty in brief: Aman’s new fragrances; sustainable hair care from Ella Mae

Filed by Lucire staff/December 7, 2020/22.57

Scents that travel
Often profiled in our travel section, including some memorable features from personal visits by our travel editor, Stanley Moss, Aman finds itself in a beauty story as it launches five 50 ml eaux de parfum created by master perfumer Jacques Chabert.
   They follow Aman’s foray into skin care in 2018, and its wellness supplement brand, SVA, in September 2020.
   The new scents are gender-neutral, with each inspired by an Aman destination. Vayu has been inspired by Amanpuri in Thailand, conveying the freshness of summer and crashing waves; Ayom, inspired by Amanjiwa in Indonesia, is what Aman calls a ‘deep, dramatic and complex’ scent with a sense of rarity; Umbr, inspired by Aman Venice, is an opulent, layered scent, with hints of oak, leather and spice; Zuac, inspired by Amanjena in Morocco, is described as ‘warm ochre combined with drifting spice’; and Alta, inspired by the forthcoming Aman New York, is a bold, urban scent. All scents are phthalate-, paraben- and formaldehyde-free.
   The bottles are designed by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, and crafted in Japan from Paulownia wood, made from a fast-growing tree. The case is reusable.
   The scents are available at the Aman Shop and at the resorts’ boutiques. A further two scents are due in the spring.

For healthy hair

Here’s a brand that’s still a relatively well kept secret outside France: Ella Mae, a hair care brand using only sustainable organic ingredients sourced in Provence. Founded by a brother–sister duo in 2019, Ella Mae addresses common problems such as brittle and thinning hair, slow growth and dry scalp. Karanja oil is used throughout the range, with 100 per cent natural antioxidant protection for hair colour from repeated shampooing and UV rays. All ingredients are paraben- and sulphate-free, and never tested on animals. Most unusual is the use of snail slime, which has some of the best moisturizing compounds in nature, and is beneficial for hair and scalp. Find out more at ellamae.com. Lucire readers can get 30 per cent off with the code LUCIRE30.

Best in the land
The Luxury Lifestyle Awards in New York has announced that Diamond Laser Medispa, in Taupō, New Zealand, has been given the status of the Best Luxury Medical Spas in New Zealand. A beauty spa and skin clinic, it was founded in 2013 by Olivia Blakeney-William, and has competencies in appearance medicine, advanced skin treatments, tattoo removal, IPL, and diode laser hair removal.


 


Pureology relaunches with reformulated line-up for summer 2020

Filed by Lucire staff/July 12, 2020/11.10

After preparing for two years, Pureology is relaunching for summer 2020, with a fully renovated line-up and reformulations.
   The line-up continues Pureology’s high-performance, professional-grade principles, and comprises shampoos, conditions, treatments and styling products. The formulas are sulphate-, paraben- and mineral oil-free. All formulas remain 100 per cent vegan.
   They are made with Pureology’s Antifade Complex, a patented ingredient blend with sunflower seed, a UV filter and vitamin E, working to protect colour; and Zerosulfate, a blend of corn, coconut and sugar that cleanses without stripping colour. The formulas are highly concentrated, with over 70 applications per bottle.
   With its origins in California, and now part of L’Oréal, Pureology has always kept its finger on the pulse of what makes products responsible and good for its users. The original Pureology products were sulphate-free and 100 per cent vegan, and in its 20th year, the new line has a reduced carbon footprint in its sourcing of ingredients, greater water conservation, and the use of 95 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic packaging, which in turn is 100 per cent recyclable. No products or formulations are tested on animals.
   The new line is already on sale at pureology.com and at Salon Centric, and will be available from August on Ulta, Amazon and Sephora.com.
