MEET TOM CON­NELL

As the Mid­dle East con­tin­ues to ap­peal to in­ter­na­tional brands, celebrity hair­dresser Trevor Sor­bie is the lat­est lux­ury sa­lon to launch in the re­gion, and Artis­tic Direc­torTom Con­nell flew in for the oc­ca­sion. We grab the mane man (sorry) to talk trends and dis­cover what made him get hooked on hair at the age of 16. “My par­ents are hair­dressers and my dad once took me to watch aTrevor Sor­bie hair show,”Tom ex­plains. “I thought, ‘If I’m go­ing to do this for a ca­reer, I want to work for him.’” Dream big, kids.

SELFIE SA­LON

The brand, founded by iconic celebrity hair­dresser Trevor, has opened a com­pletely In­sta­grammable branch of the multi-award-win­ning sa­lon at The Dubai Mall.Trevor Sor­bie Ara­bia boasts pink soft fur­nish­ings, green shrub­bery on the ceil­ing and jars of sweets lin­ing the re­cep­tion. So cute. But not just a pretty face,Trevor andTom have brought over their lead stylists from the UK to en­sure the brand’s stel­lar rep­u­ta­tion is up­held (each stylist goes through an in­ten­sive train­ing process).There’s also a menu of nail treat­ments avail­able, which is such a sim­ple yet bril­liant idea for tick­ing off two beauty jobs at once.

CAR­POOL CUT

As driv­ing got un­der­way, Fea­tures Edi­tor Olivia Adams pro­posed a cheeky hair­cut, asTom and the team have been de­vel­op­ing a hair tech­nique called ‘in­vis­i­ble lay­ers’ for thick, one-length hair. Tom de­scribes this hair as ‘static’ and ‘not able to move well’.The method? Blow-dry the hair and use the points of the scis­sors – or a ra­zor – in­side the hair to re­move weight and add tex­ture.The re­sult is lighter hair but when combed you can’t see any lay­ers. Nicely done.

Who’s a dab hand at ap­ply­ing lip­stick in the back of a mov­ing car? A mae­stro at make-up on the move? Yeah, us too. So we de­cided to put beauty to the test in this way, grab­bing var­i­ous Grazia pals along the way. This week, we’re putting beauty in the boot and tak­ing a hair de­tour. Buckle up...
