Here’s a little video I made recently. I’m not a pro with videos but I’ve been practicing and getting better. This one is for my latest product Renovo which launched a month ago and has been doing really well. These ‘before and after’ pictures of my clients are not photoshopped, I took them myself and they have been put together over a period of 3 – 4 months, these results are all real. Check it out!
I would like to introduce my new product – Tousle Surf Spray!
So what is a surf spray then? Its used to give the hair an unkempt tousled ‘been at the beach all day’ kind of look. It clumps the hair together to give a messier easy going texture.
So what makes ‘Tousle’ different? Tousle was developed to be light and airy with no rough feel and with some subtle shine.
As with all my other products, it’s #fragrancefree #parabenfree#nosodiumlaurylsulfate#nosodiumlaurethsulfate Pretty chuffed with this one, Enjoy it! Available now @dekkosalon or here on the Tousle page.
Moody Blues Collection extract taken from Behind The Chair:
‘Forget about rigidity, structure, formalism and order. Here we have a slouchy, chic, mix-and-match vibe. Somehow still proper, but with huge dollops of innovation and a fresh take on the standard beehive, blunt bob, shag and long layers. All doused in the dusky light of a midwinter afternoon – that time of exquisite anticipation between day and night.’

Nancy came into Dekko wanting to donate all her hair to charity. She really wasn’t too worried about going too short so we decided to take all her hair off to chin length. I cut her hair with the razor to try to bring out any movement and wave that she might have in her hair. It was a good move, because as soon as the weight came off the hair, lots of kicks and twists came through in her hair which allowed me to work with it and create a cutesy messy bob shape that she could also wear smooth if she needed to.
Here’s Nancy before her haircut:
This is after the haircut, (sorry about picture quality in these) we styled it with some Oribe Maximista Thickening Spray and finished off with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray:

He continues to work on catwalk shoots and editorial campaigns across the globe, as well as creating imagery and developing products in his role as artistic director for Davines.
“Veils arouse curiosity while the wearer keeps her distance. Witness these striking veils of hair – dressed, cut and coloured into astonishing textures, forms and shapes. They act to attract while keeping arousal in check.”’’

Sweet Emily has been a client of Dekko’s/mine since she was in her teens, back then she had long crazy thick hair that hung down her back. During the past 10 years, we’ve been changing her up with different looks, long layers, rocker layers, all types of fringes and lots of fun stuff with colors too.
This hairstyle was by far the most drastic change Emily had, we decided to go with a very loose razored organic look, working with the movement that was already in her hair. The haircut was done quite freely, and kept very unstructured, working the shape n as the hair was drying. What we ended up with was this cute flippy textured asymmetrical look that needed no work put into it.
Here’s a picture of Emily before the haircut:
Thanks Emily for posing for us, we had fun.
And here are some different views of Emily’s finished haircut:

Some lovely curly hairstyles going on in Dekko Salon. Showcasing some variations on curls and lengths on our lovely client Meng.
Meng had a short pixie along the way and is now growing her hair out, we have been keeping track of her grow out stages, through the bob with graduation down to the ‘shag’ look. With Meng’s natural curls, her hair is best styled with Moroccan Oil curl crème twisted and diffused for a curlier look.
One of my absolute favorite stylists, Angelo Seminara who is Artistic Director for Davine’s Product Company. Those of you who follow me, know that I always try to post as many collections from Angelo as possible. I find his work to be positively inspiring, unique and ultra creative. Here is his Games Collection for you to check out.
Excerpt taken from angeloseminara.com
‘Almost tribal in character, Angelo’s inspiration for this collection is underpinned by the tactile textures of the natural world: snakes shedding their skin, light casting diffused shapes through diaphanous fronds and leaves; fish scales, bird feathers, wood grains, slate, rock and marble striations. Combined or singular, the images capture nature’s strength in an enchanting, evocative way.’
