Restyle for two guys

May 3, 2009

two artists from vienna were invited to realize a project with us and stayed in lisbon for 10 days.

since both of them did a great job, we could not let them return to austria without a proper haircut (you will hear more about their work soon). sabine and jezz gave them a lesson in contemporary lisbon haircutting and they enjoyed it.

after 60 relaxed minutes with good music, they both liked their new hairstyle and one can really see the difference..

Today Inês was up for an interview:

How long are you working in the salon?
I’ve been here for 3 and a half years already, time’s been flying….

How comes that you are still here – isn’t it boring?
Not really 🙂 We always have different clients and different work to do, and after all this time it’s like working with friends and family. The salon has a very good energy, and I usually don’t get fed up with good energies. It’s hard to leave!

What would you really like to try out one day?
Hmmm…. This is a hard one…. Luckily for me, I always have clients that let me do whatever I want, so I don’t think there’s anything I would like to do but can’t. In my own case, shave my head but then I wouldn’t have any hair to play with… And I love playing with hair…..

where would you like to work (at least for a while)
In an immediate future, i would like to work in Berlin, then maybe London to visit some friends, and in a few years Tokyo and Kyoto. And in Portugal, maybe spend a while in Porto. You should never put your own country a side…

What group of people is most inspiring for you?
Definitely Punk in all its variations and Japanese Anime. And my coworkers obviously, you always learn a lot and get inspired by watching others working.

You are quite concerned about the environment which is not very typical for a “alfacinha” – do you talk to the people in your neighborhood and in your family about that?
Maybe not in my neighborhood, but to my family, friends, coworkers, to everyone that comes into my home or to wich homes I go too…Everyone I caught doing something wrong… I’m a wee bit of a dictator with it 🙂

Would you like to become the Prime Minister of Portugal one day?
No… Not really… I don’t really like politicians.  I think i would end up slapping all of those around me… Hehehe…

two haircuts in one

jezz and her magic scissors did another innovative masterpiece: her regular customer who works in a quite conservative or at least classic environment, wanted a new, excentric cut. she wants to grow her hair but she also wants something fresh and outgoing. what a challenge for jezz.

since there was a lot of volume to cut off, jezz suggested to cut out a few waves and leave the hair on top long and even, like a curtain. the concept worked out nicely and her client now has two haircuts in one 🙂

How long are you working in Hairport?
nine years and nine months – quite some time!!!

How are you still here? Isn’t it boring?

actually i´m bored to death – LOL. but my bosses, colleagues and the interesting work make it really difficult to leave 🙂

What would you like to try out one day?
pubic hair design 😀 –  seriously – I usually don’t have problems to find someone who lets me try out some excentric ideas .

where would you like to work (at least for a while)?
I would choose a big city or a mega city outside of europe, like new york, rio de janeiro, sydney, singapore… this would be a  challenge!

What do you think about fashion magazine cover page girls?
I’m note sure if I understand the question, it depends on the magazine and the covergirl. generally boring and artificial puppets, but i have seen some good ones too.

Why do you like james bond movies?
fast cars, cool gadgets invented by Q, strong masculine figure who protects women, actually most of them get killed after the one-night-stand with mr. bond – LOL

enjoy the experience

October 1, 2008

customers do not come to hairport just for the haircuts and colours, it’s the whole experience. there’s always someone to welcome you and guide you. if you’re early for your appointment, you can always have some tea or water and read a magazine. after the stylist has given you some advice and you have agreed on what should be done, breathe in and enjoy the massage while washing your hair – take some time to relax. while the stylist is cutting or coloring, take pleasure in the music and easy going atmosphere around you.

sometimes we have four legged friends paying us a visit.

…. visiting hairport makes you forget the world outside for a moment….
