I do my job as a hair stylist and colorist with much love, passion and dedication and I appreciate meeting people who are vibrating that same spirit. Artisans, who work consciously respecting the materials and traditions. When I first met Melissa Rosenbauer and Thomas Bossert, I felt an instant connection to this creative and inspiring couple behind “espanyolet”, an independent maker of superb handcrafted Mediterranean artisan items for the home, like hand painted vintage linen and hand formed ceramics, all made in Mallorca.
It’s with great enthusiasm that I share with you a bit of their extraordinary journey, how they landed in Mallorca and started to work and sell their amazing cloth & clay collection of espanyolet.
I have to admit that until now, practically all my posts were mainly dedicated to the feminine world. So I decided to bring forth a subject that could appeal to both women and men: S-H-O-E-S.
Us women always get pretty excited about our high heels but we love to see our men go in style too, right? Well, in Palma de Mallorca there is a unique space, dedicated to the most authentic masculine footwear: Join me at MONGE’s shop, located in the historic center of Palma; it is a true paradise of good taste offering luxurious handmade shoes “Made in Mallorca”.
I’m a real shoe enthusiast. They’re definitely one of the most crucial accessories to turn a good outfit, into a perfect one. I often choose which shoes I want to wear first, before I get dressed. I believe this accessory reveals a lot about someone’s personality. Sorry if you catch me staring at your shoes, I’m probably delighted by your shoes.
I really love hats, I always have. I wear them a lot, in winter and in summer. I adore that particular touch they add to my style.
When I was a little girl, back in Cologne, Germany, I used to dream of designing my own collection one day. Instead of making hats, I´m styling and coloring hair. Its obvious that the head is my passion. Now I had the chance to visit a great milliner, probably the best one on Mallorca.
If you love wearing hats just like I do, I strongly recommend visiting MARAT ATELIER in Palma de Mallorca and meet the charming Marta Ortega. Listening to her profound voice and talking about such cool hats, will make you feel like you have to own one of those wonderful hats she has created.
Usually I write about beauty and hair topics. Today, however, I turned a bit towards a sustainable lifestyle, an issue that definitely matters to me. I would like to introduce you to a very interesting project of our dear neighbours “Urban Drivestyle”.
Urban Drivestyle, right around the corner of our hair salon, is a extraordinary bike shop and bike rental, where you can buy and rent the best and most beautiful e-bikes, e-mopeds and e-scooter on Mallorca. But now they also developed their own e-bike, the MOKE! The first e-bike “Made in Mallorca”.
You will fall in love – yes, in nail polish! Better said, in many nail polishes! The trendy beauty brand Treat Collection from Berlin with its fine collection of 66 selected colors will sweep you off your feet! But it´s not just because of the beautiful shades and shine, all 5-free nail polishes contain much less chemicals than regular products; they are 100% vegan, environmentally friendly and absolutely cruelty-free to animals.
Treat Collection is much more than just another nail polish. It is literally a treat! A treat for all of your senses… a hint of self-indulgence. Like a great novel waiting to be read, a pleasant massage, a breakfast in bed or a beautiful flower bouquet.
Have I piqued your curiosity? If so, you definitely should continue reading!
You’ll might know it! Now, once the summer season is over, our hair seems to be dry, brittle and dull. Too much sun, chlorine and salt water took its toll on our valuable hair. Though, we just want to recover our healthy, glossy and well-groomed hair we used to have!
Now it´s time to indulge our hair with an invigorating energy booster! One that helps us revive the hair. Helping to nourish and maintain it, while bringing back the moisture, allowing a beautiful shiny glaze.
Glossing, is the magic word!
If you belong to those who love well-groomed and silky glossed hair with natural color shades, than this glossing service is a 100% must-have.
See now what a gloss treatment looks like! I´m sure you will love it!
I really appreciate working in my salon, but there is no doubt that sometimes it´s great to be somewhere else. Being at another place with other people can turn out pretty inspiring. And even more if there is love involved ;-) Like recently at the wedding of two amazing women – Kristin and Yamila – at hotel “Cap Rocat”, a former military fort on Mallorca. It was an honor being asked to do both brides hair!
Enjoy the charming impressions of a very special wedding, at a very special location. Get inspired!
If you search on the Internet for Olaplex you´ll find almost nothing but superlatives! Is Olaplex really the miracle cure to color, dye and bleaching your hair – considering we read it everywhere? To find out, we have extensively tested Olaplex during the last six weeks at our hair salon. First, on natural hair extensions and later on models. Find out if Olaplex really lives up to its promise to revolutionize hair coloring.
Here finally our very own personal review. I´m actually surprised by the results!
The great french sculptor Auguste Rodin (1840-1917) was a pioneer of the modernist aesthetic. He created a very contemporary style, at the same time respecting traditions. It´s no coincidence that La Biosthétique has choosen the reverend “Musée Rodin” in Paris to shoot its new autumn-winter collection 2015/2016. Both, Rodin and La Biosthétique, are connected to tradition, progress and modernity!
Here I´m presenting you the new autumn-winter hair, make-up and styling trends by La Biosthétique. Discover with me a magic world between art and beauty. I´ll show you the most inspiring pictures – including some cool behind-the-scenes impressions!
Directly from California I welcome Olaplex! On the Internet, on Instagram and Pinterest, Olaplex is praised like the miracle cure to bleach, dye or color hair. What´s the truth behind the Hype? I have investigated it for you!
Olaplex it´s not a color and not a lightener. It is a add-on to the color and to the bleaching mixture the colorist use to avoid hair damage. And it is also a special treatment before shampooing.
BLONDE, MORE BLONDE, PLATINUM BLONDE
Very stressed or damaged hair after bleaching, coloring or dying hair, seems to be a thing of the past. Turning dark hair to platinum blonde, without risking hair breakage, should not be any problem anymore. That´s at least what you can read on the internet! Sounds great, right?
