Many salon pros in the Healthy Hairdresser community have identified weight loss as a goal for 2016 and a contributing factor to overall health concerns that affect career sustainability, productivity and lifestyle. In fact, it was the number-one issue cited in the inaugural Healthy Hairdresser survey of stylists. (Source: MODERN SALON Research, 2014.)

In the spirit of being proactive, and not waiting for a health crisis to make change happen, the April Healthy Hairdresser Challenge sponsored by haircare line Obliphica Professional, asks salon pros to commit online to put a weight loss plan in motion, and to share one strategy they will implement as a smart start to lose the “First 10.”

Participants will be given the option to be contacted by Healthy Hairdresser editors in the following month and to share updates on their progress. As with all Challenges, the purpose is to share stylist-to-stylist best practices and to encourage more salon pros to "take care of you."

The first 100 participants to commit to the April Challenge online at modernsalon.com/healthy will receive a gift package from Obliphica Professional; 10 lucky respondents will receive $100 Amazon gift certificates to invest in something for the next phase of their healthy endeavors.

“Treat yourself well, because you deserve it,” Obliphica founder Dalal Moussa says. “Healthy Hairdresser encompasses everything we stand for—beauty, health and wellness. We are vested in your success and in making the First 10 Challenge a positive experience.”

There were MANY highlights from the 2019 MODERN Artist Connective Artist Session photo shoot held recently at the Eva Scrivo Salon in NYC, but one that caused a lot of buzz was the creation of the decorative florets created by Haley Garber (@beautybyhaleygarber).  Garber spent hours creating dozens of the florets that were eventually placed in the hair to accent the three final looks by Garber and her hair partner Stephanie Hodges (@stephstyles) who created the beautiful and dimensional color.
