Finally over? Mixed feelings.

On the one side, yes. It was one of the toughest weeks I can remember. Felt like in a sinister examination hall with stiff students and observing invigilators :) High tension...master educators, tight time for every project, long days starting at 0830hrs and ending at 1900hrs...Tough. But every day was a winner.

On the other side, I must admit it was the most enlightening week-long seminar I can remember. Mingling with top educators, listening to their experiences, learning about the science of the products and blending with the craft of styling...Any stylist's treasure trove. I now look forward passing on some of this experience to my staff and CortexLtd Seminar participants. New chapter.

I share with you some of the captured moments of these last 7 days. Enjoy :)

Today is the test. Butterflies in my stomach. Pros all getting ready. First practical session after 3 days of munching information. A hall of artists and manikins...projects given to each stylist including myself...pressure in the air...SHOWTIME for me!

My project...before

Works in progress, using colour technology, products and my scissors and hand :)


Super happy. Got great comments by educators. Bursting with ideas

My impression? Just impressively overwhelming!

So much technology goes into our products. An overflow of information in these first 3 days of this global gathering in Varese Italy, hometown of Z.One Concept Hair products. An unrestricted collection of new products and top notch educators (even if they feel to most of us here like a rollercoaster with the speed everything is happening). Found it hard to keep up with notes. But overall I feel I'm doing great.

People? So many from different nationalities. My cheekbones are in a cramp smiling and greeting them :) Have to... Flavia (my colleague) and myself are ambassadors of Robert Micallef of Cortex over here. I should be grateful to him for this opportunity.

I am attaching some pictures just to give you a feel even if it is hard to imagine what it is really like here. Stay tuned for more. 3 more days to go. Bursting with ideas.

Just had two fun days packed with lecturing, training and practicing skills in gentlemen  grooming :). The intensive seminar was ably organised by Cortex Limited with their Depot products and confident educator Clinton Attart. Handling a straight barber razor blade gave me some shivers at first...reminded of my first days in the profession clipping with my scissors. I can only respect even more the veteran barbers handling the razor with such confidence and precision making it look so easy. Masters!

Learning about the Depot products was way more easy and up my street. Depot products are superbly unique for finishing, pre-post-shave, conditioning, oiling and much more.

We stock Depot products in case you need any for home use. Looking forward to share my advice as to what could work best for you.

Stay tuned...attending a week's intensive course in Milan soon.
