And the award goes too.....

It&ly Hairfashion has created a new award this year that will honor celebrity hairstylist for their creativity and talents.  The award is called the Artisan Award. 

"You like my hair, you really like my hair"

The CEO of It&ly Hairfashion had this to say about his award, “It was time for our hairdressing industry and IT&LY HAIRFASHION to recognize our peers for mastering their artistry and craft, producing a much needed annual event to honor them. Their ability to recreate characters, periods in history as well as fantasy for film and television, has brought a new found source of awareness, style trends and education to hairdressers around the world.”

I don't think this was one of the winners.

Most recently the 2010 IT&LY Artisan Awards held in Las Vegas were awarded to the following top celebrity hairdressers from the sets of Gossip Girl (Betsy Reyes), Dancing with the Stars (Kimi Messina), Sex and the City 2 (Frank Barbosa), Twilight Eclipse (Bonnie Clevering) , and the soon to be released Burlesque (Colleen LaBaff) and Tyler Perry’s: For Colored Girls and American Gangster (Kenneth Walker) plus Bride Wars (Barbara Lorenz), , America’s Got Talent (Russell Latham), How I met your Mother (Jani Kleinbard), Jada Pinkett & Willow Smith’s personal hairstylist (Marcia Hamilton) and Scooby-Doo (Ramona Fleetwood).

Lady Ga Ga's newest hair style

Lady Ga Ga is so ahead of us in creative hair styles.  We have all been so focused on the head!  There is so much more we can do with hair in our salons.  We could be styling hair outfits.  Just imagine clients coming in with their new hair covered peasant top, asking for an updo or Brazilian blowout before a night on the town.
Sure lady just set your hair covered outfit on the chair and comeback in 3 hours, I'm in the middle of a bleach job on that sweater over there.

Balding - Could it be a thing of the past?

Sure Patrick Stewart looks great without hair, but how many times is he going to come into your salon for service?  Clients without hair are not clients.  We need to cure baldness for both men and women.  The big news is that scientist have just discovered the gene that regulates hair growth.  When it is turned on, hair grows in the follicle.  When it is turned off, well you can see the picture on the left.
Here is a link to the article from Science Daily -

Also, my next guest on our podcast will be from Bosley Professional Strength hair care line.  They are on their way to becoming the #1 thinning hair care line.  Please email any questions for them to us at

Battle of the Hair
