Evripidis, my super-talented and super-beloved musician friend ( http://www.evripidisandhistragedies.com ) was in Athens for a gig and I cut his hair again. We had so much fun when I took his pictures and I would like to shout out a huge thank-you to Kostas for holding the vintage projector for what seemed like an eternity. Here’s an amazing video of Evripidis and his tragedies:

I cut Spyros’s hair and that was a huge change for him. He had the same rockabilly hairdo for five-six years. Even though a cut, color or style may become your trademark after wearing it for several years, I think it is essential that you change after a certain point (and show some mercy on the stylist who’s been doing the same thing for sooooo long). Quoting the master of re-invention, Madonna : “Having a new haircut makes you wanna dress another way, act another way and carry yourself another way”. So, if you’ve stuck with something for too long and you think nothing else is going to look as good on you, leave your fear and doubt aside and go for a really big change. It is definitely worth feeling.

I cut Greg’s hair really short and that’s what he wants for the summer. At this point I would like to take some time to praise his natural color. People have asked him on the street where he colors it repeatedly over the last five years. I guess that means that all you boys that have started going grey should not rush to get hair dye or freak out about it, George Clooney is not the only one that can pull it off. Grey doesn’t only go with mature charming classic male. It goes with edgy and  youthful as well. And keep in mind: the whiter, the better.

I gave Eliza a haircut and spent a couple of hours giving her frizzy curls. And no, I don’t mean an afro. The difference between the two is that you can see the texture of some curls in all the frizziness. So, girls with natural curly hair start worrying less about the frizziness of your curls since we’ve seen lots of it in fashion recently. There’s Tom Ford’s spring 2008 eyewear campaign with model Karen Elson (my favourite redhead of all), Sonia Rykiel’s spring 2008 campaign, Kate Moss’s September 2009 W cover and one of the Marc Jacobs’s spring/summer 2011 ready-to-wear catwalk looks called an ode to (Vogue USA’s creative director) Grace Coddington, to name just a few.

Olybia is one of my friends that is so fearless and we’ve done so many different looks together, that it would take three pages of this blog to showcase what we’ve done in the last three years alone. I cut and coloured her hair and then styled it and took some pictures. This dark ash blonde is one of my favorite colors of all. I think it screams class. Marina Stat did a fab make up once more and I would also like to thank George for holding those lights.
