BEING AN ARTIST IS ABOUT CRAFTING YOUR CREATIVE INSPIRATION INTO MATERIAL, AND THIS IS WHAT A HAIRSTYLIST SHOULD DO
FRESH FROM WINNING THE PRESTIGIOUS 2015 BEST AVANT GARDE AIPP AWARD FOR HIS FASCINATING CREATIVITY, DAVINES ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, ANGELO SEMINARA, TELLS US MORE ABOUT HIS ARTISTIC DEVOTION TO THE HAIRSTYLING PROFESSION.
Angelo, what does inspire you most?
“Inspiration can come from so many different places, but the essence of the natural world is surely what inspires me most. Mother Nature surrounds us and permeates every aspect of our life with boundless beauty that will never stop to fill with wonder the eyes of those who want to see it. I am indeed very curious and I think that inspiration is basically all about curiosity and passion for what you do: if you don’t have that hunger for knowledge, then you are just missing so many chances of discovering and inventing something new, both in hairstyling and in life.”

Where does creativity meet hairstyling?
“I think that creativity is a recipe made of many different ingredients: inspiration sources, individual sensitivity and, last but not least, the love and dedication to your profession, hairstyling in my case.
One of my objectives in hairstyling is to step outside the box, to create something that seems impossible and unexpected, that pleases my eyes, mind and soul, but nevertheless my philosophy is always to make a woman look beautiful and modern. Originality often means eclecticism, a mix of elements coming from different forms of art, that’s why to work with hair I also search for inspiration from other fields that are not necessarily the hairdressing one, such as fashion industry, photography, architecture, design and contemporary art. I like to collect, combine and experiment, translating all the ideas and re-elaborating all influences in various ways: besides my salon work, my creative collection productions and magazine shooting works, I design hair for art curators for fashion exhibitions.
I love hairdressing and if you love something in life you automatically become loyal and truthful to it. Hairdressing is my passion, through good and bad times and I always stick with it. Every day I look forward to my job. I definitely believe creative hairdressing is an art form in itself, a vital visual force to complement other arts.”
If we ask you to tell us the name of a hairstylist who represented a turning point for your career…
“The first name that comes into my mind is for sure that of Trevor Sorbie, a real hairdressing icon, who has inspired the whole sector at a worldwide level, becoming a mentor for many of today’s top hairdressers, thanks to his ability of always combining perfectly the highest quality standards with the most excellent hairdressing. Working with him for 15 years was a very meaningful and enriching life experience, he became like a father to me and I feel very grateful for what he gave me from both a professional and a human point of view.”
What is new, in your opinion, in the latest hairstyling trends?
“While rushing through the professional day by day routine, a hairdresser, like all the other artisans, sometimes runs the risk of forgetting to focus on some basic aspects of his craft, missing some great chances of adding value to his work.
I think that this is the moment to rediscover the creative potential of blow-drying that, in my opinion, is precious like an accessory to be worn, the final expert touch that enhances the beauty of a style. I’m working with Davines on something new, an homage to this special craft, to give it back its artistic dignity. I perceive the blow-drying as an art, and I want to invite all the hairdressers to realize their own masterpiece with hair. You’ll discover soon what I am talking about, I hope that you’ll enjoy it and that you’ll have fun!”

How To Clean Hair Brushes & Combs
One thing you might not think about cleaning on the regular is your hairbrush or comb. Of course, we remove hair build up every so often but do you take the time to really clean them? The downside is if we don’t clean them on a somewhat regular basis dirt, oil and hair products can build up and leave your hair feeling not so clean. So how do we solve this problem? Well, there is an easy way to clean our your brushes and combs and it only takes a few minutes. Check out the instructions below on how to clean hair brushes and combs:
Start by removing all hair that has built up in between the bristles of your brush or comb. If some hair is woven tightly, use a toothpick to loosen.
Next, soak your tools in a sink of warm water with a few drops of shampoo. This will help remove oils and any product lingering in the bristles. Gentle scrub to get them extra clean.
If you happen to have a wooden, padded, or rubber brush skip the soaking step. Simply run these type of brushes under water with no soap to remove oils and dirt.
That’s all it takes to remove the build up on your brushes and it can be done on a weekly basis to make sure your brush is as clean as possible.

Wow! This has been the craziest year ever! We signed the lease on our space for the salon in October and the journey to this point has been incredible. Building a salon is hardwork, but now that we can see it in real life it is so freakin cool. We have been super blessed to have a lot of great people that have helped us along the way!
We started the creative process of building our new hair salon in downtown Denver on Pinterest.com actually… It’s a super sweet site that can be a powerful creative tool. We started a “Salon ideas” board and started pinning pictures and articles from different Salon’s around the world that we liked. We used stuff from other shops, stores, and restaurants as well. Through all the pics and articles a “feel” and “vibe” of what we wanted for our new organic hair salon began to emerge.
We went back and forth with our designer and worked out the design for our own salon. We knew we wanted the interior design of our hair salon to vibe with our eco-friendly philosophy. We got most of our materials through scavenging and donations of reclaimed stuff.
Paul learned how to build this year, and made a bunch of the stuff in the salon from scratch using the reclaimed materials.
We have looked into all the other hair salons in Denver, and just tried to make ours better… There really isn’t another salon like ours in Colorado, maybe any wear. We are super proud of our uniqueness and we love seeing people’s faces light up when they come in.
These last couple of weeks for our salon have been huge. The phone’s ringing, our team is starting to mesh real well, we got our first suite rented and the ball is really rolling.
We love love being able to offer chemical-free salon product and services in Denver, one of the greatest cities in the world! Having our hair salon in Denver is so perfect for us! We’ve really started setting our roots in our Art District neighborhood. The buzz down here is palpable and its so exciting for us and our salon!
People have really been digging our concept. Chemical-free, organic, green, products and services. Salon plus Barbershop plus clothing and jewelry boutique plus art gallery! There really isn’t anything like My Hair Trip around. We are so proud and happy that people are liking what we have to offer at our Denver Salon!Leave a reply
