In the never-ending battle against aging, it seems like there’s always a new frontier to conquer. Case in point, your hair. Where once we thought spackling grey roots with dye would do the trick, it turns out that’s just scratching the surface. Aging can cause hair to become brittle, dry and less dense.
“Just like with skin, everyone ages differently,” says Paul Schiraldi of L’Oréal Professionnel. “It usually begins around the age of 35. We’ve found that there’s a 10 to 20 percent loss of density in individual strands over each progressive decade.”
What’s more, says stylist Frédéric Fekkai, one’s chronological age doesn’t necessarily correspond with the age of your hair. “There are a lot more people using color and chemical services at a younger age,” he says, “as well as a lot more [environmental] pollution, which all contribute to aging hair.”
But with knowledge comes power and as technology has advanced, so have the treatments. Phyto and L’Oréal have new regimens that focus on redensifying thinning hair, while Logics addresses replenishing dry, damaged hair and maintaining color.
Jonathan Antin’s new Ionic Balance Technology shampoo and conditioner tackle breakage with a blend of tourmaline and amethyst ionic crystals, said to make hair more manageable and soft.
“The ingredients are key,” says Antin. “They’re packed with the highest level of antioxidants, which are just as beneficial to the hair as they are to the skin.”

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
