Our mission is to eliminate foil from hair colouring applications in the salon!
In Canada an average 15.6 billion pounds of recycled aluminum in are land fills. In Ontario alone an average of 5.2 million pounds of un-recycled aluminum ends up in are land fills each year. The average salon alone produces over 10 lbs of aluminum waste per week. Multiply that by 10,000 salons in Ontario alone and that equals 100,000 lbs of aluminum waste in are landfills per week! You don’t have to feel bad about looking good! Individuals can help reduce waste by making environmentally aware decisions about every day things like colouring your hair. Do your part and join the Greenlight revolution!
In 2013 Frank Cini represented Canada for HCF at Carrousel du Louvre in Paris with a presentation for 2500 attendees from 45 counties around the world. Frank has worked on the set of music videos, designed ad campaigns for L’Oréal Professionnel. His hair artistry has splashed the front covers of Salon Magazine, featured in spreads of Elle Canada, Flare, Chatelaine and Toronto Life. Frank’s accolades include awards for 2006 Canadian Hairdresser of the Year, 2007 Editorial Hair Stylist of the Year, and most recently 2009 Long Hairdresser of the Year, just to name a few. Cini is a Regular guest on the Global Morning Show and has appeared on Breakfast Television/City TV, Global News/Global Television, The Beauty Guide/Women’s Television Network, Rogers Television and Images TV/Life Network.
He is a member of the elite Ambassador Committee for L’Oréal Professionnel; traveling seasonally across the globe creating cut and colour trends for the company’s latest collections.
Amidst all the travel and creativity with the LP Team, Frank always considers his clients, putting them first when he’s back in the salon. “Clients are the best barometers of success,” says Cini. “Training and travel tie in to enable me in becoming a well-formed stylist, allowing me to educate my clientele on new looks that will flatter them based on hair type, face shape, and manageability. Without a doubt, clients are our key to success.”
Frank carries with him a commitment to excellence in leading the Taz team, as well as being the best possible mentor for his children. Having become a 4th generation hair stylist, it’s no surprise that this man’s family crest ought to be a pair of shears.
Creating “living sculpture” is how Norm Wright describes his work as a senior stylist. His artistic approach stems from his early interest in art and music, and it’s an attitude that has earned him some of the highest honours in the country during more than 25 years in the business. A two-time winner of the Canadian Hair Colourist of the Year award, he was also inducted into the Canadian Hair Stylist Hall of Fame in 1996.
He likes his clients to set trends, not follow them. “I prefer not to do style. I do people,” says Norm, an enthusiastic golfer who used to create punk styles for friends before he took up hairdressing as a career. He’s willing to keep adjusting a trend to fit the person because he understands that many people want regular changes; a third of his new clients come in wanting a new look. As a result, it’s not surprising that he still has his first client.
His passion for hairdressing comes from witnessing the reactions to his creative coiffures. “I like releasing the sparkle in people,” he says. “It’s truly an honour when you make someone feel better about their look.”
