Hazel Gardiner

Hazel Gardiner is an East London based floral artist, teacher, content creator and gardener. After surviving a rare cancer diagnosis in 2007, she decided to change her career from television production to vintage retail and events as well as her perspective on her natural curls. 

“Prior to losing my hair due to radiotherapy, I had never strayed from chemically relaxing my hair and hadn’t seen my curls in their natural state since I was 13. I had also had long straight extensions for the first time right before diagnosis. I shaved my head when loss started to happen which gave me some control back. I then thought it was the perfect opportunity to go back to my natural curls..no need to transition!”

Since then she has fully embraced her curls!

Florence’s Hair Story @blendedbeauty

My natural hair journey was not very typical, to say the least.
I am a biracial woman who is Bajan & Filipina
Up until 12 years old my hair was bone straight like my mother’s.
When my hair transformed into curls, I went through an identity crisis that turned my whole world upside down.
I asked my parents for a perm at 12 and felt like I finally fit in again until I washed my hair and saw that the curls, while looser was still there.
A few months after I decided to stop fighting with what God has me and went to transition my hair to the beautiful curls you see today and have not looked back ever since.

In Style

“8 Heatless Natural Hairstyles To Create For the Holidays” features the Spiral Curlformers, highlighting how to achieve a desired style without heat by applying the Curlformers to damp hair and letting it air overnight.

This hairstyle appears to be super involved, but lucky for us — it’s not. Simply start off by cleansing your hair and applying your styler of choice. Then you’ll want to divide your freshly washed, damp curls into sections, and fish them into the Curlformers. Once you’re done, let it air dry overnight, remove the Curlformers, and voila! Well, almost.

To finish up the style, use a few bobby pins to bring your curls over to one side, then add in your favorite clips, or other hair accessories, for your own personal touch.

Vogue.com – Softhood®

As we transition into the chillier months ahead, many of us will be looking to embrace blowouts, making the search to find the best hair dryer all the more relevant. Perhaps your old one isn’t doing it for you anymore, or you’re simply trying to avoid the salon in the age of the coronavirus. Maybe you’re planning to do your own braids and you want to stretch out your hair beforehand, or you just want something to speed up your drying time in general.

Vogue loves this hands-free dryer accessory because it’s “fast drying with maximum airflow pocket design.” Plus, it has a nonslip silicone collar that ensures the tube will stay on its associated hair dryer.

Curlformers Review: What is Curlformers? Do Curlformers Really Work?

Curlformers Review: What is Curlformers? Do Curlformers Really Work?

Curl Boss – James Catalano

“Love your curls, because everyone else’s are already taken” – professional hairstylist James Catalano

With over a decade of expertise James Catalano has built himself a well-renowned name within the high-end hair industry. From styling celebrity icons like Celeste, Dina Asher-Smith , Amerie, Charlotte Church and Yvonne Nelson; to his editorial and beauty works featured in global publications such as ELLE,  Hunger, Gay Times, GQ, ES,  Hermoso, Clam , Volt, Huf, BlackHair,
Pride and Black Beauty to name a few. And it doesn’t end there; Catalano has also accumulated commercial praise for global brands such as Nike, Adidas, Carte D’or, American Express, Bacardi and Captain Morgan and our Curlfomers® too. His work has also been showcased in the limelight on many occasions when joining forces with the hair teams for the X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent,
and London Fashion Week; alongside HairFlair for the Spring/Summer 2020 Julien X Gabriella show.

Lets find out how a man from humble London beginnings became our Curl Boss featured here
today.

How did hairdressing become your chosen profession?

“Hairdressing runs in my family; starting with my mum who used to work in a salon which influenced me in some ways but I have always been intrigued with hair and its transformative abilities. I started doing hair (mostly cornrows and braids) to earn some extra money whilst studying for my degree but I never intended on making it a long-term career. However, when I graduated, I found an apprenticeship in a salon, which paid me enough for my rent and bills, as well as providing me with a qualification. Since then I fell even more in love with hair, and so, I just allowed myself to be open to the different opportunities available for me to progress within the industry.”

What would you say was your defining moment as a professional hairstylist? 

“So far, my defining moment was and remains styling Celeste for her 2020 Brit Awards
performance. It was amazing to not only be part of the creative process but to then have it be seen by almost 4 million people and to top it all off, she was featured on several ‘Best Brits Looks’ lists thereafter.”

HairFlair is about styling and curling all hair types with kindness; having worked in-depth with our Curlformers® which style would you say gives, you personally, the most creative freedom? 

“Spirals’ are medium width Curlformers and they are amazing at producing long-lasting curls in hard-to-curl hair, as well as smoothing, shaping and defining naturally curly hair. What’s great is that the curls can be worn in coils straight from the Curlformers® themselves or separated for endless bounce and volume. They are also a great tool to use when prepping hair for up-dos, bridal, and creative styles; because the Curlformers move in two different directions, you gain full control of the final look by deciding which way the curls will fall.”

What do you think makes curls such an enhancing characteristic? 

“I love curls because of the amount of movement and life they can give your hair, which I believe to be a major enhancement to overall style and character. They frame the face in such interesting and complementary ways; making every head of curls completely unique. I love the way that light reflects off of each twist and turn of a single coil, but the amount of volume and shape that curly hair can achieve is second to none.”

What would be the one thing you could pass on to a young hairdresser?

“Everything you will ever need to know about hair is already within you just waiting to be unlocked; take every opportunity you get, to listen, watch and learn. Be gentle with hair and co-operate with it because when you fight hair it will fight you back.”

A CurlBoss is known as someone who embraces curly hair; someone who is an inspiration to those with their own curls or those who simply love to rock a curled look, to wear it with pride and show it off whilst taking the world over by storm.

A #CurlBoss is also someone who is an expert in all things “Curl’’ . Someone that understands textures, curvatures & personal preferences; that knows how to cut, style & treat curls.

A CurlBoss is able to transform them with skill & precision. 

If you could give one #CurlBoss quote, what would it be?

How to Safely Stretch Natural Hair

When you have natural hair, you know that shrinkage is a package deal. And although you understand that the arrangement of your DNA dictates how hair grows out of your head, that doesn’t mean you don’t want to change up your look every once in a while.

Sometimes you may also want to stretch out your texture to see growth progression as a reward for all the hard work you’ve put in. Luckily, there are several ways to make this wish a reality. Even better, there are plenty of stretching methods that can be done without the damage of heat.

HairFlair Win a Global Pure Beaty Award and have Two Finalists

The winners of the third annual Pure Beauty Global Awards were recently announced and of over 600 product entries, hairstyling brand ​HairFlair won the Best New Inclusive Product category for their innovative Softhood® bonnet hairdryer. The Pure Beauty Global Awards celebrate the best beauty products around the world and are judged by a panel of beauty experts and industry insiders. This year’s panelists included the likes of NARS Senior Makeup Artist Clayton Reid, Celebrity Facialist Nichola Joss and CEO of the British Beauty Council Milli Kendall, and were instrumental in selecting winners across 39 categories from 33 countries.

Alexandra Malet, HairFlair CEO commented on the win, “We are thrilled and honoured to be awarded a Pure Beauty Global Award, especially in this category. Inclusivity and innovation are what drives HairFlair to deliver high quality products to our consumers across genders and ethnicities, so to be recognised in this category is a huge privilege”.

HairFlair Waveformers® Beach Flair was also awarded Finalist in the Best New Inclusive Hair Product category, while HairFlair Styleformers® Nourish Replenishing Serum bagged Finalist in the Best New Hairstyling Product category.

As used by Ken Paves backstage at the Julien Macdonald LFW show, the Softhood® comes in a range of colours and patterns; it has a unique configuration of more than 120 ventilation holes die-cut over the hood’s crown and around its drum to dry the hair faster and more evenly. The Softhood® conditions hair, nourishes the roots, and bathes the strands in nutrients and is suitable for all hair types. It comes in several colours and patterns. Even model Suki Waterhouse was spotted on Instagram caring for her hair with the Softhood® during lockdown! This is the second plaudit this month for the Softhood®® which was also named Best Bonnet Hair Dryer in the UK by Best Advisor.This year’s awards featured a variety of industry powerhouses and innovative indie brands — from Milani to Paula’s Choice — that now join an elite club of products that bear the Pure Beauty Global Awards logo.

Get the look for wild curls like Grace Gray

The next how-to in our photoshoot blog post series teaches you how to recreate the looks from last month’s curly photoshoot captured by the wonderful Barry Jeffery and styled by premier hairdresser and stylist Karine Jackson!

Here’s how you can re-create Grace Gray’s stunning, wild, fiery look created with the Spiral Curls Styling Kit.

Step One: Wash and brush your hair out separating it into individual sections using the HairFlair® Large Paddle Brush

Step Two: While your hair is still damp, insert Spiral Curls Styling Kit into your hair, section by section

Step Three: Keep your hair damp whilst inserting the Curlformers® using Flairosol Micro-Mist Applicator

The Flairosol Micro Mist Applicator is an engineered spray bottle with multi-patented technologies. It’s very fine mist combined with continuous spray functionality covers large areas quickly, evenly and in all directions from first to last drop.

Step Four: Once all sections are complete, apply the HairFlair Deluxe Softhood over the top of your Curlformers® and use a low heat setting. Sit back, relax and wait for your hair to dry!

Step Five: Once dry, remove Curlformers and use your fingers to gently loosen out your ringlets! For extra volume back comb your hair lightly from the root.

This fabulous look, along with a range of others, can be easily recreated, reimagined and reinvented at home with the Curlformers® styling kits! Each kit allows you to sculpt gorgeous, glossy curls every time and best of all – they don’t cause heat damage.

Hazel Gardiner

Hazel Gardiner is an East London based floral artist, teacher, content creator and gardener. After surviving a rare cancer diagnosis in 2007, she decided to change her career from television production to vintage retail and events as well as her perspective on her natural curls. 

“Prior to losing my hair due to radiotherapy, I had never strayed from chemically relaxing my hair and hadn’t seen my curls in their natural state since I was 13. I had also had long straight extensions for the first time right before diagnosis. I shaved my head when loss started to happen which gave me some control back. I then thought it was the perfect opportunity to go back to my natural curls..no need to transition!”

Since then she has fully embraced her curls!

Florence’s Hair Story @blendedbeauty

My natural hair journey was not very typical, to say the least.
I am a biracial woman who is Bajan & Filipina
Up until 12 years old my hair was bone straight like my mother’s.
When my hair transformed into curls, I went through an identity crisis that turned my whole world upside down.
I asked my parents for a perm at 12 and felt like I finally fit in again until I washed my hair and saw that the curls, while looser was still there.
A few months after I decided to stop fighting with what God has me and went to transition my hair to the beautiful curls you see today and have not looked back ever since.

In Style

“8 Heatless Natural Hairstyles To Create For the Holidays” features the Spiral Curlformers, highlighting how to achieve a desired style without heat by applying the Curlformers to damp hair and letting it air overnight.

This hairstyle appears to be super involved, but lucky for us — it’s not. Simply start off by cleansing your hair and applying your styler of choice. Then you’ll want to divide your freshly washed, damp curls into sections, and fish them into the Curlformers. Once you’re done, let it air dry overnight, remove the Curlformers, and voila! Well, almost.

To finish up the style, use a few bobby pins to bring your curls over to one side, then add in your favorite clips, or other hair accessories, for your own personal touch.

Vogue.com – Softhood®

As we transition into the chillier months ahead, many of us will be looking to embrace blowouts, making the search to find the best hair dryer all the more relevant. Perhaps your old one isn’t doing it for you anymore, or you’re simply trying to avoid the salon in the age of the coronavirus. Maybe you’re planning to do your own braids and you want to stretch out your hair beforehand, or you just want something to speed up your drying time in general.

Vogue loves this hands-free dryer accessory because it’s “fast drying with maximum airflow pocket design.” Plus, it has a nonslip silicone collar that ensures the tube will stay on its associated hair dryer.

Curlformers Review: What is Curlformers? Do Curlformers Really Work?

Curlformers Review: What is Curlformers? Do Curlformers Really Work?

Curl Boss – James Catalano

“Love your curls, because everyone else’s are already taken” – professional hairstylist James Catalano

With over a decade of expertise James Catalano has built himself a well-renowned name within the high-end hair industry. From styling celebrity icons like Celeste, Dina Asher-Smith , Amerie, Charlotte Church and Yvonne Nelson; to his editorial and beauty works featured in global publications such as ELLE,  Hunger, Gay Times, GQ, ES,  Hermoso, Clam , Volt, Huf, BlackHair,
Pride and Black Beauty to name a few. And it doesn’t end there; Catalano has also accumulated commercial praise for global brands such as Nike, Adidas, Carte D’or, American Express, Bacardi and Captain Morgan and our Curlfomers® too. His work has also been showcased in the limelight on many occasions when joining forces with the hair teams for the X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent,
and London Fashion Week; alongside HairFlair for the Spring/Summer 2020 Julien X Gabriella show.

Lets find out how a man from humble London beginnings became our Curl Boss featured here
today.

How did hairdressing become your chosen profession?

“Hairdressing runs in my family; starting with my mum who used to work in a salon which influenced me in some ways but I have always been intrigued with hair and its transformative abilities. I started doing hair (mostly cornrows and braids) to earn some extra money whilst studying for my degree but I never intended on making it a long-term career. However, when I graduated, I found an apprenticeship in a salon, which paid me enough for my rent and bills, as well as providing me with a qualification. Since then I fell even more in love with hair, and so, I just allowed myself to be open to the different opportunities available for me to progress within the industry.”

What would you say was your defining moment as a professional hairstylist? 

“So far, my defining moment was and remains styling Celeste for her 2020 Brit Awards
performance. It was amazing to not only be part of the creative process but to then have it be seen by almost 4 million people and to top it all off, she was featured on several ‘Best Brits Looks’ lists thereafter.”

HairFlair is about styling and curling all hair types with kindness; having worked in-depth with our Curlformers® which style would you say gives, you personally, the most creative freedom? 

“Spirals’ are medium width Curlformers and they are amazing at producing long-lasting curls in hard-to-curl hair, as well as smoothing, shaping and defining naturally curly hair. What’s great is that the curls can be worn in coils straight from the Curlformers® themselves or separated for endless bounce and volume. They are also a great tool to use when prepping hair for up-dos, bridal, and creative styles; because the Curlformers move in two different directions, you gain full control of the final look by deciding which way the curls will fall.”

What do you think makes curls such an enhancing characteristic? 

“I love curls because of the amount of movement and life they can give your hair, which I believe to be a major enhancement to overall style and character. They frame the face in such interesting and complementary ways; making every head of curls completely unique. I love the way that light reflects off of each twist and turn of a single coil, but the amount of volume and shape that curly hair can achieve is second to none.”

What would be the one thing you could pass on to a young hairdresser?

“Everything you will ever need to know about hair is already within you just waiting to be unlocked; take every opportunity you get, to listen, watch and learn. Be gentle with hair and co-operate with it because when you fight hair it will fight you back.”

A CurlBoss is known as someone who embraces curly hair; someone who is an inspiration to those with their own curls or those who simply love to rock a curled look, to wear it with pride and show it off whilst taking the world over by storm.

A #CurlBoss is also someone who is an expert in all things “Curl’’ . Someone that understands textures, curvatures & personal preferences; that knows how to cut, style & treat curls.

A CurlBoss is able to transform them with skill & precision. 

If you could give one #CurlBoss quote, what would it be?

How to Safely Stretch Natural Hair

When you have natural hair, you know that shrinkage is a package deal. And although you understand that the arrangement of your DNA dictates how hair grows out of your head, that doesn’t mean you don’t want to change up your look every once in a while.

Sometimes you may also want to stretch out your texture to see growth progression as a reward for all the hard work you’ve put in. Luckily, there are several ways to make this wish a reality. Even better, there are plenty of stretching methods that can be done without the damage of heat.

Vogue.com – Softhood®

As we transition into the chillier months ahead, many of us will be looking to embrace blowouts, making the search to find the best hair dryer all the more relevant. Perhaps your old one isn’t doing it for you anymore, or you’re simply trying to avoid the salon in the age of the coronavirus. Maybe you’re planning to do your own braids and you want to stretch out your hair beforehand, or you just want something to speed up your drying time in general.

Vogue loves this hands-free dryer accessory because it’s “fast drying with maximum airflow pocket design.” Plus, it has a nonslip silicone collar that ensures the tube will stay on its associated hair dryer.

Curlformers Review: What is Curlformers? Do Curlformers Really Work?

Curlformers Review: What is Curlformers? Do Curlformers Really Work?

Curl Boss – James Catalano

“Love your curls, because everyone else’s are already taken” – professional hairstylist James Catalano

With over a decade of expertise James Catalano has built himself a well-renowned name within the high-end hair industry. From styling celebrity icons like Celeste, Dina Asher-Smith , Amerie, Charlotte Church and Yvonne Nelson; to his editorial and beauty works featured in global publications such as ELLE,  Hunger, Gay Times, GQ, ES,  Hermoso, Clam , Volt, Huf, BlackHair,
Pride and Black Beauty to name a few. And it doesn’t end there; Catalano has also accumulated commercial praise for global brands such as Nike, Adidas, Carte D’or, American Express, Bacardi and Captain Morgan and our Curlfomers® too. His work has also been showcased in the limelight on many occasions when joining forces with the hair teams for the X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent,
and London Fashion Week; alongside HairFlair for the Spring/Summer 2020 Julien X Gabriella show.

Lets find out how a man from humble London beginnings became our Curl Boss featured here
today.

How did hairdressing become your chosen profession?

“Hairdressing runs in my family; starting with my mum who used to work in a salon which influenced me in some ways but I have always been intrigued with hair and its transformative abilities. I started doing hair (mostly cornrows and braids) to earn some extra money whilst studying for my degree but I never intended on making it a long-term career. However, when I graduated, I found an apprenticeship in a salon, which paid me enough for my rent and bills, as well as providing me with a qualification. Since then I fell even more in love with hair, and so, I just allowed myself to be open to the different opportunities available for me to progress within the industry.”

What would you say was your defining moment as a professional hairstylist? 

“So far, my defining moment was and remains styling Celeste for her 2020 Brit Awards
performance. It was amazing to not only be part of the creative process but to then have it be seen by almost 4 million people and to top it all off, she was featured on several ‘Best Brits Looks’ lists thereafter.”

HairFlair is about styling and curling all hair types with kindness; having worked in-depth with our Curlformers® which style would you say gives, you personally, the most creative freedom? 

“Spirals’ are medium width Curlformers and they are amazing at producing long-lasting curls in hard-to-curl hair, as well as smoothing, shaping and defining naturally curly hair. What’s great is that the curls can be worn in coils straight from the Curlformers® themselves or separated for endless bounce and volume. They are also a great tool to use when prepping hair for up-dos, bridal, and creative styles; because the Curlformers move in two different directions, you gain full control of the final look by deciding which way the curls will fall.”

What do you think makes curls such an enhancing characteristic? 

“I love curls because of the amount of movement and life they can give your hair, which I believe to be a major enhancement to overall style and character. They frame the face in such interesting and complementary ways; making every head of curls completely unique. I love the way that light reflects off of each twist and turn of a single coil, but the amount of volume and shape that curly hair can achieve is second to none.”

What would be the one thing you could pass on to a young hairdresser?

“Everything you will ever need to know about hair is already within you just waiting to be unlocked; take every opportunity you get, to listen, watch and learn. Be gentle with hair and co-operate with it because when you fight hair it will fight you back.”

A CurlBoss is known as someone who embraces curly hair; someone who is an inspiration to those with their own curls or those who simply love to rock a curled look, to wear it with pride and show it off whilst taking the world over by storm.

A #CurlBoss is also someone who is an expert in all things “Curl’’ . Someone that understands textures, curvatures & personal preferences; that knows how to cut, style & treat curls.

A CurlBoss is able to transform them with skill & precision. 

If you could give one #CurlBoss quote, what would it be?

How to Safely Stretch Natural Hair

When you have natural hair, you know that shrinkage is a package deal. And although you understand that the arrangement of your DNA dictates how hair grows out of your head, that doesn’t mean you don’t want to change up your look every once in a while.

Sometimes you may also want to stretch out your texture to see growth progression as a reward for all the hard work you’ve put in. Luckily, there are several ways to make this wish a reality. Even better, there are plenty of stretching methods that can be done without the damage of heat.

Hazel Gardiner

Hazel Gardiner is an East London based floral artist, teacher, content creator and gardener. After surviving a rare cancer diagnosis in 2007, she decided to change her career from television production to vintage retail and events as well as her perspective on her natural curls. 

“Prior to losing my hair due to radiotherapy, I had never strayed from chemically relaxing my hair and hadn’t seen my curls in their natural state since I was 13. I had also had long straight extensions for the first time right before diagnosis. I shaved my head when loss started to happen which gave me some control back. I then thought it was the perfect opportunity to go back to my natural curls..no need to transition!”

Since then she has fully embraced her curls!

Florence’s Hair Story @blendedbeauty

My natural hair journey was not very typical, to say the least.
I am a biracial woman who is Bajan & Filipina
Up until 12 years old my hair was bone straight like my mother’s.
When my hair transformed into curls, I went through an identity crisis that turned my whole world upside down.
I asked my parents for a perm at 12 and felt like I finally fit in again until I washed my hair and saw that the curls, while looser was still there.
A few months after I decided to stop fighting with what God has me and went to transition my hair to the beautiful curls you see today and have not looked back ever since.

In Style

“8 Heatless Natural Hairstyles To Create For the Holidays” features the Spiral Curlformers, highlighting how to achieve a desired style without heat by applying the Curlformers to damp hair and letting it air overnight.

This hairstyle appears to be super involved, but lucky for us — it’s not. Simply start off by cleansing your hair and applying your styler of choice. Then you’ll want to divide your freshly washed, damp curls into sections, and fish them into the Curlformers. Once you’re done, let it air dry overnight, remove the Curlformers, and voila! Well, almost.

To finish up the style, use a few bobby pins to bring your curls over to one side, then add in your favorite clips, or other hair accessories, for your own personal touch.

Perming sits alongside colour and cut as an additional complimentary service – a no brainer for salons – and has been covered extensively in the consumer press. Curlformers® are at the forefront of the new style perms offering an innovative update on this classic technique and have been featured in The Guardian, Marie Claire, Evening Standard and The Pool. The unique patented mesh construction enables perming with no winding, no endpapers, no mess, effectively removing the opportunity for human error such as fish hook ends or uneven winding.

Here at HairFlair®, we’re proud to support salons with virtual education while social distancing measures are in place – contact us anytime through the website or our social channels and we’ll help you to introduce perm services to your salon, from practical training and advice to product ordering and marketing materials. HairFlair is an inclusive brand, suitable for use on ALL hair types. Contact us for more information.
