Charlize Theron's Shaved Head!

I can't Believe what I am seeing! Charlize Theron was spotted on holiday in Namibia with a SHAVED HEAD! She is set to star in the new Mad Max: Fury Road, which is the fourth film in the 1979 action franchise. There is only one person in my opinion that has ever looked good with a shaved head, and that's Sinéad O'Connor.

Its been a busy month with L'Oreal Professional here in Israel. As well as upgrading the formula of INOA to OSD2 they have launched a new line of home care products especially for INOA. They help to protect and maintain the radiance of your color service. Whats amazing about these products is the ingredients. They have no sulphate, and are enriched with argan oil and green tea extracts. The shampoo comes in a tube, and has a more concentrated formula compared to the other lines of shampoos. A little goes a long way. The masque is also enriched with argan oil and green tea extracts, and leaves hair feeling smooth, nourished and soft, and looking very shiny. Products Available at Highlights Hair Salon.

INOA OSD2 Arrives in Israel

I am Happy to announce the arrival of L'Oreal Professional's ODS2 INOA color line. Now clients of top hair salons around Israel can enjoy the latest L’Oreal has to offer! Although there are a few less shades than the original INOA line L’Oreal Professional is coming out with more very soon. The new INOA ODS2 hair color line is remarkably faster to mix because of the 2 part mixing system where as before INOA used a 3 part system.  With the new INOA the grey coverage is much better than before and it provides hydration up to 6 weeks, keeping your hair shinier  and healthier than ever before. The L'Oreal INOA line has won 12 international prizes from the Editors Choice Awards from Allure magazine! Contact us at Highlights for more information.

What we do : What they do

At Highlights we are lucky to have such an interesting and influential clientele base. I have decide to create a post once a month consisting of a professional and original  hair technique created by our team and combine it with a sneak peak of the life behind the client who wears it.

What We do:-
I will never forget the first time I spoke to Lucy on the telephone. She had been from salon to salon in Israel and was unable to find a hairdresser that understood her. From years of bleaching, her hair was delicate and over processed, and in desperate need of a little TLC. After the first consultation we knew we had to come up with an innovative bleaching technique to keep the lightness that Lucy was looking for, while keeping her hair in good condition. After brainstorming for quite some time we came up with a brilliant idea which enabled us to give Lucy exactly what she was looking for. The technique requires you to apply a deep conditioner on all the pre-bleached hair, and enclose it in tin foil leaving the natural roots protruding outside. Using Blondie's Oil Bleach from L'Oreal Professional  we color the roots. After that we apply a toner. Today Lucy's hair is light, and much healthier then ever before. For more information contact Highlights Hair Salon.

What she does:-
Lucy Fensom, who founded Safe Haven for Donkeys in the Holy Land in 2001, lives and works at the Safe Haven sanctuary in Israel along with her husband, Adi and young son, Robert. Lucy and Adi organize the teams who work at the sanctuary, with the mobile treatment unit and the team of vets who attend the sanctuary, go out with the mobile unit and attend the permanent clinic in Palestinian Territories each week. In May 2002, Lucy was awarded the International Fund for Animal Welfare's "Animal Action Abroad" award for her services, which in conjunction with The Sunday People newspaper, saw Lucy receiving her award at a special presentation at The House of Commons in London. After Her Royal Highness Princess Alexandra became their Royal Patron, Lucy received an invitation to The Queens Jubilee Garden Party at Buckingham Palace.

" May 29th arrived and the time came to embark upon a once in a lifetime experience - I actually felt very nervous, mainly about how to curtsy, who to curtsy to and when, not to mention what i should say IF I was spoken to! Amazing though, once I arrived all my nerves were dispersed because I felt so in awe to be there. Walking through Buckingham Palace was so surreal. It was like being in the country side, but smack bang in the middle of London.

 " When the Royal Family Made their entrance I suddenly found my self getting quite tearful when I saw the Queen. Kate Middleton was just as exquisite in real life as she is in the pages of glossy magazines. All in all it was truly an awesome day. Looking back it all seems as if i was in a fairytale to have been on the inside of those famous Buckingham Palace gates, as apposed being on the outside looking in. I feel immense gratitude at having been given such a fantastic opportunity!"

MADONNA: Style Icon

Love her or hate her, Madonna is the ultimate style chameleon: nobody does reinvention like Madonna. She's been a blonde, brunette, redhead, curly, straight and cropped. And whatever her look, she's never short of a few copycats.

She Kicked off her world tour a few days ago here in Tel Aviv, and being the avid Madonna fan that I am, I could not miss the special occasion. We arrived in advance to make sure that we were as close to the stage as possible, and for four hours we did not move in inch. As much as I love the Israelis its definitely survival of the fittest in that kind of situation. As people started to pass out all around us, we edged our way to the front. After being elbowed, pushed, and threatened to have my eyes gouged out by a FRECHA with her cheap talons, it was finally showtime!

 “I chose to start my world tour in Israel for a special and important reason, You can’t be a fan of mine and not want peace in the world. People of all walks of life, we’re all sons and daughters of the universe and human beings. We all bleed the same color. We all want to love and be loved. It’s easy to say, ‘I want peace,’ it’s another thing to do it. … No conflict can ever be resolved by causing pain to another human being.” 

The MDNA Concert was spectacular, with controversial video art, amazing sound, and electrifying atmosphere. If you haven't got tickets GET ONE!
