Hairbrained conversations

Hair brained conversations with Elena Lavagni

Earlier last month Elena Lavagni, co-owner of London based Salon Neville Hair and Beauty and “service provider” to the world's one and only Amazon Salon featured on Gordon Miller's podcast Hairbrained conversations. In this episode Elena makes a strong case for proactive evolution of how salons think about business and technology to remain competitive in a fast-changing world – and shares learnings from her experience working with Amazon and with her own Neville team over the course of the pandemic.

Jack Merrick Thirlway heads the WHITE SHOW 2022

CENTRAL SAINT MARTINS – the WHITE SHOW 2022

The White Show is an annual showcase in December where each first-year fashion design student at Central Saint Martin’s creates a single look in white fabric. A greatly anticipated event of the first term, it is one of the longest running projects on BA Fashion at the college and is conceived, organised and promoted by first year students on BA Fashion Journalism & Communication. This year the theme was @theplayground_22J (experimental, sensory, surreal, playful, strange, graphical)

L’Oréal Professionnel Paris have an ongoing partnership with Central Saint Martin’s supporting creative young design talent, and this year invited hairstylist Jack Merrick-ThirlwayJ at Neville Hair & Beauty to create the hair looks and lead the @lorealproJ hair-team to style the hair for all 140 students who each modelled one look. The team included three @lorealpro ID Artists who take part in a two-year education and development program for talented hairstylists.

  • Amelia Circale/Yoke the Salon
  • Alex Anfield/Linton & Mac
  • Elisa Doherty/Sally Montague
  • Gokhan Berber/Neville Hair & Beauty
  • Phoebe Carraro/Seanhanna
  • Samantha Thacker/Mack Hairdressing
  • Stephen Campbell/Hair & Co
  • Vishali Visavadia/Georges Hairdressing

Lead stylist Jack Merrick-Thirlway shares how to get the look:
As the theme was the Playground we had a combination of some simple looks with a strong parting and gelled back at the sides to compliment more complex garments, and more abstract graphic shapes to enhance simple garments, with multiple little knots, looped ponytails and gelled tendrils.

For the simpler look, put in a strong centre parting slick back the sides using L’Oréal Professionnel Techni.Art Fix Design. For models with longer hair, spray Techni.Art Full Volume Mousse through the lengths and brush well and diffuse to keep the texture and shape. For those with natural texture, spritz with Curl Expression curl reviver and style to enhance the shape and use Curl Expression 10 in One mousse to smooth back around the face.

For the boys, we kept the strong centre parting and gelled back the hair to give a clean slightly quirky silhouette

For the more graphic updos, spritz the hair with water and put in a strong centre parting. Then spray the sides with Tecni.art Fix Design and Techni.Art Full Volume mousse through the lengths. Brush it back into a smooth ponytail and secure with elastic. Straighten the lengths and flatten using tongs, then loop the lengths around and secure with elastic so the ends are facing up, spray and tong the ends to give a spikey finish. Alternatively divide the hair into sections, brush up and secure each section with elastic and twist the length into a little knot and secure to create multiple little knots.

Shorter hair can be worn slicked back, following the contour and shape of each model’s face, with some fringe pieces pulled across the forehead.

Neville teams up with GSG

At Neville Hair and Beauty we are on a mission to salon sustainability and we’ve teamed up with environmental service Green Salon Collective, to make our salon more responsible than ever before with our salon waste.

We are now recycling your hair! Green Salon Collective are working on hair boom and mat projects that could see your hair soaking up an oil spill, and they will also be using it for gardening and composting too.

To join Green Salon Collective, we’ve decided to add a £1 “green fee” to each client visit. So now when you see us in the salon, you’ll also be helping us save our planet too!

If you have any further questions about our “green fee” please contact the salon on info@nevillehairandbeauty.net

Elena Lavagni supports altruism

Metehan’s battle

Altruism, is when a person shows selfless concern for the well-being of others. A beautiful trait of character that I hold dear to heart and have also taken great pride in observing amongst some of my team members. In particular our colour director Seniz Alkan who recently decided to help raise awareness and funds for a little boy called Metehan. Metehan was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy type 1 - a neuromuscular disease so severe that many children with SMA type 1 do not reach the age of two.

As SMA is a rare disease, Novartis charges a huge fee to cover their R&D costs and make a profit: Zolgensma costs $2.1 million – with additional expenses such as travel, accommodation and consultancy fees, the total amount of reaches $2.45 million (currently £1.9m). Since deciding to join the cause to help Metehan, Seniz has raised over £100k. As a close friend and colleague I am keen to help raise further awareness about Metehan’s story and terrible disease.

Redken X BTC Competition

Throughout the month of September Redken hosted a UK Instagram competition with the infamous Behind The Chair social account inviting colourists around the country to share the very best of their colour transformations using the #redkenxbtc.

Seniz Alkan – Colour Director, who began her career 18 years ago when she started working a Neville Hair & Beauty is a huge fan of the Redken products and jumped at the opportunity to enter the competition.

Having trained as a colourist at the salon and having since worked her way up to Colour Director at the salon, Seniz’s experience has enabled her to develop many colour techniques influenced by her work travels around the globe.

Seniz never stops learning and developing colour trends, and she regularly travels to Los Angeles where she has visited top salons including John Barrett, Tracy Cunningham and Ramirez Tran where she met top colourist to the stars Anja Burton 8 years ago.

Anja and Seniz have since worked together on creating a new variation to the classic Ombre/ Balyage, the Ombralayage, which is exclusive to Neville Hair & Beauty.

Ever the innovator, Seniz, who practices from her own ‘Colour Pod’ at the salon, has created trend after trend seen on the likes of London’s top press, including her new Silhouette Slicing technique she pioneered Spring 2020.

It was in her new Pod that Seniz bleached her client Bria's hair to platinum blonde. A winning look according to Redken and Behind The Chair who awarded Seniz with second place.

Alkan says; "Bria has very fine and brittle Afro Caribbean hair but she was keen to undergo a drastic colour transformation. After our initial consultation we agreed that a platinum blonde would be the ultimate colour for her. To achieve this colour, I used Flashlift with Bonder + 20 Vol to enable me to leave the bleach on as long as I could without compromising the condition of her hair. This mixture meant I was able to lift all the undertones and unwanted colour and achieve the brightness necessary for a platinum blonde. We then proceeded to tone with 9B + 9V + 9P in equal amounts leaving the toner on for 15 minutes on dry hair. It’s important the toner is applied on dry hair for maximum absorption."
