It was a case of Stockport meets LA when key members of the head office team from Sexy Hair in the US travelled to the flagship store of Alan Howard to present to educators and sales reps. Making their way from sunny California to Stockport were Sexy Hair’s vice president international sales James Banville, director of corporate communications Sloane Lamartina and education manager Jenifer Pietrzak. The trio offered an insight into how Sexy Hair is perceived in the US, the impact of Marilyn Monroe as the brand’s ambassador and a sneak preview of some of the forthcoming launches in 2015. James told those attending that the plan was for 20% of sales each year to come from new product launches.

Molte Aziende (pellegrine) non partecipano in alcun modo alla creazione di "valore" del mercato moda-capelli: copiano, svendono, raccontano balle etc. Non fanno il minimo investimento nè in comunicazione, nè in informazione o in sviluppo prodotti. Per loro l’imperativo è tenere il parrucchiere all’oscuro il più possibile per poterlo più facilmente dominare !
Ma come è possibile far evolvere un mondo come quello della MODA-CAPELLI senza comunicare i nuovi stili, le tendenze, i gusti… per esaudire o creare un desiderio di bellezza nella donna? Ma purtroppo il parrucchiere non si accorge di quello che gli succede attorno, lo subisce.
Se vogliamo continuare a essere creativi in questo settore, bisogna sensibilizzare il parrucchiere e fargli capire che non è risparmiando (neanche sempre) qualche euro che si possa pensare di avere un futuro roseo ! Bisogna fare delle scelte, bisogna anche cambiare, bisogna fare delle valutazioni diverse rispetto al passato.

inspiration:“Taking inspiration from the renowned Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian, the latest collection from the award-winning Sally Montague Hair Group, was influenced by the ‘Compositions with Yellow, Blue and Red’ series showcased at the Mondrian and his Studios exhibition at TATE Liverpool.” “We were heavily inspired by the geometric shapes and block colour placement in Mondrian’s exhibition, translating this for a fashion forward, but commercial collection, using contrasting textures, parallel sectioning patterns and structured, sleek styling.” Angel Montague-Sayers, Art Director, Sally Montague Hair Group.
