Dream Appointment // Bleach London

Ever been to Bleach, London's super cool hair salon famous for pastel hair and a 90’s vibe? Our designer Kelly has been a huge fan for ages so we decided to hook her up with Scarlett from Bleach for some summery fruit salad hair. Oh and we brought our 90’s analogue camera along to match the grungy feel, snapping away while we chatted about Kate Winslet's blue locks in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, hair disasters and the hair/trouser combo that got Scarlett expelled from school.

How did you two decide what hair you were going to go for?

Scarlett: We decided to go for a pinky peach color with a few bits of lilac, the idea was just to see how light we could lift the hair and then work from there, as it can sometimes take a couple of bleaches to get to a pastel color. Warmer tones are way more achievable on the first bleach. We then finished off with a trim and a wavy blowdry, to give a natural beachy look.

Did either of you ever get into trouble because of your hair or fashion sense at school?

Scarlett: Oh god, all the time. I discovered crazy colors at a pretty young age, and then couldn't leave myself alone. One week I would have red and pink hair then the next it would be turquoise. In the end I got expelled from school as I turned up with pink hair and wearing a pair of yellow drainpipes, I think that was the final straw for them. Looking back now, I agree with them on the yellow drainpipes.

Kelly: I wish I could say yes but even though I was always customizing my clothes and dyeing my hair I never pushed it far enough to get into trouble!

What have been your biggest personal hair or fashion disasters?

Kelly: Growing up my style icons always had the best big hair and I was desperate for a perm or dreadlocks, luckily I wasn't allowed either! When I went on my first girls holiday I had money burning a hole in my pocket so I got a full head of cornrows with acrylic hair extensions that scratched my sunburn. I had a Saturday job at a hairdresser and when I walked in with what I thought was the coolest hair ever, they sent me home, ooops.

Scarlett: When I was 17 I decided I wanted to go blonde, I had been dyeing my hair black for a while and even though everyone advised me not to, I thought I knew best (obviously). I got a packet of bleach and peroxide and smothered my hair in it, at the time I knew nothing about coloring hair and just figured that’s how you did it. My hair then went bright orange at the ends and yellow at the roots, I tried bleaching it again and it stayed the same color and turned into the consistency of cotton wool, it was a total disaster and I definitely learnt my lesson that time as I ended up with a pixie cut. My biggest fashion disaster though was probably the yellow drainpipes.

What movies/retro styles/music icons do you look at to get inspired?

Scarlett: I'm totally obsessed with Kate Winslet's hair in Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind at the moment, it's the image of her with the blue hair and orange hoodie which I think looks amazing, the contrasting colors just work so well. I find the 90’s grunge era is one of my favorite decades for hair, but then I also find the 70’s inspiring with people like Blondie and Siouxsie Sioux.

Kelly: Oh there's so many! I love girls that have an extra spark, when their appearance is an extension of their personality not just style over substance; it's so attractive. My influences are pretty much the same as what I loved as a teenager. I was obsessed with Gwen Stefani (who wasn't?), Debbie Harry and Shirley Manson in the 90’s, Garbage was the first band I went to see and she blew my mind! Teen movies from the 80’s and 90’s never get old! One of my faves is Heather’s, it's just so dark compared to the John Hughes flicks and Veronica looks the bomb when Jason Dean buys her a cherry slushy. Another love of mine is Jamie Hewlett's Tank Girl comics, her attitude, hair and dress sense is just so rebellious and still relevant...I just adore everything about her. The 90’s always resonate with me, I love hair that looks lived in, messy and effortless. I think that's why I love the spirit of the Bleach salon and what it represents.

What's the hair color of the moment?

Kelly: Grey is definitely having its day right now but I'm seeing some acid yellow around on those ballsy girls, which looks awesome if you can pull it off.

Scarlett: I've been doing loads of peaches, oranges and pinks recently. I find that leading up to summer everyone wants to have warmer tones in their hair. Those colors seem to suit most people too and look really pretty.

What's the perfect outfit to go with it?

Scarlett: I always think white looks great with colored hair it just makes it look really fresh and makes the color stand out even more. I also find wearing the opposite color works well too, like if you have blue hair and wear an orange or coral colored dress and vice versa.

Burger Invasion in Spain
We had a blast this weekend at the Burger Invasion festival with back to back concerts in Barcelona and Madrid! Burger Records, the Californian music label set up an eclectic line up that pumped the audience crescendo. The shows started with the delicacy of Younghusband, following with Cotillon, then some psychedelic sounds from The Molochs. At the time Wand took over the stage with their trippy progressive sounds, spirits were already high, but when The Garden started their show, it completely exploded (go check their stage act when you’ve got the chance). The show ended with The Dwarves, turning the front rows into a mosh pit, with some “punk rock (that) is good for you” . To top that up, the venues were legendary (Apolo in Barcelona and Joy Eslava in Madrid), and there was plenty of Volcom surprises for everyone including a year of Volcom Jeans supply to two lucky winners. No needs to say, good times were had by all. Don’t miss next one when those shows hit your town!

BEHIND THE SCENES: ATTUNGA - A VEECO FILMS PRODUCTION
THIS IS THE FORGOTTEN STORY OF ATTUNGA Attunga - The Aboriginals used the term to define "a high place." And that was the exact place our group was searching for. Or was it a feeling? To navigate the globe, to harness the spirit of a single moment in time created by a collective of individuals, to find a higher place for an elevated state of being – Attunga. Without hesitation, we jumped into action and began our journey. A daily diary was written. Each day’s adventure noted, madness scribed. The crew documents in an attempt to record what would be known to Attunga as the most influential group to ever occupy its presence. Then, the diary was lost. Mishandled. Hours of line-by-line transcribing of pure gold vanished as if nothing ever happened. Left in the fresh Australian Alps. A page ripped out of a larger story only to be known to a select few. It was said to contain their unapologetic quest for a higher place. This was the chapter of Attunga.   Not since Attunga's early days had a group of 15 men troubled the grounds with musical instruments and a thirst of 100% Victorian hops and malt which goes by the name of Furphy. This beer, the Volcom Snow Family longed-for. It was their weakness, but it didn’t hold them back. Not at all. It only fueled their true passion for living. Snowboarding. Music. Skating. There were no downtimes. Those outwardly disturbed neighbors, rattled from their foreign beds and thundered by group chants with overwrought behavior, only marveled the next day as the team soared high above their heads. Finding side-hits where previously thought impossible, approaching jumps at unprecedented speeds, riding down the mountain together all in a consistent, but unique way. They were on the search for a higher place. A place which previously occupied a state of mind unbeknownst to their fellow man. This place was the pinnacle of their search. And it was mesmerizing. This was the long-forgotten story of Attunga, only briefly told. A temporary remembrance of what once was. An anecdote. It seems archaic to draw a timeline from memory and not tangible proof. But, then again, that’s the story of Attunga. Did it really happen? We must digress. Continue on. The story is out there. In a higher place that's joined with its unparalleled state of mind. Lost in a diary that doesn’t want to be found. Buried beneath, somewhere deep in Falls Creek. Photos by Vernon Deck + E-Stone:

The Volcom Cham Shack Womens Invasion !
Volcom womens took over the Volcom Cham Shack beginning of February, in Chamonix, France. The ladies that joined us were: Camille, Fanny,  Lili,  Kicki,  Alba,  Silvia,  Jess,  and  @maudlecar Some of the coolest girls from Paris, Berlin, Barcelona and London together with our brand ambassador Maud Le car, flew to the Volcom Chamonix House in Chamonix to be part of a unique experience. Jess Gavigan, aka Juice  describes her journey ! ‘A couple of weeks ago I headed out to  Chamonix for a snow adventure with Volcom. I left Bali to do the trip and then return to Asia straight after because the trip sounded so amazing and I really wanted to work with Volcom! The long journey was made up for it by the first night accommodation. COZY SETTINGS LEVEL 100. The hotel was amazing, and I had the most amazing room with a view, and was greeted with a bed full of amazing gifts from Volcom, clarins and electric. GASSEDDDD. That was a great start to the whole trip, but I won't  go into it loads cos there's too many sick parts... We went to the Volcom store to pick out some stuff, which was totally unexpected - if the gifts on the bed weren't enough we got free reign inside the store (like kids in a candy shop). We got to try snow shoeing, which was a new experience for me! And I loved it. It was sick doing a mini trek up the mountain, perfect weather conditions and the icing on the cake was the house we went to for dinner. It was unreal. Everything hand made, hand cooked. The food was WOWOW, and we each got given a quartz crystal which was all found on the mountains by the husband. It was such a special night and I've been keeping the crystal in my pocket everyday (travelling through Asia) The bit I was most excited about was snowboarding in our new gear. I was stoked to ride with lucie, vernon, olivier, Maude Alba and Silvia. We got to go and ride around and take some sick shots. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. I loved everyone we all got on so well. And then we did a couple all girl runs GIRL POWER haha The clarins spa was next level. Getting pampered was heavenly and the outdoor swimming pool/jacuzzi was a really nice end to the day. The whole trip was sick. The group got on so well and everyone was like a big family at the end. I was sad to leave. It was an amazing and magical few days in the mountains. My only regret is that it didn't last longer!! I met so many cool people and its an experience I won't forget, and even better I've got sick volcom snow and lifestyle apparel for lifeeeee. ‘ THE WHOLE TRIP WAS JUST WOW. (Haha inside group joke) Big love to emilie, Lucie and the volcom gang. Credit photos : Vernon Deck video : Olivier Gittler Special thanks to Electric, Clarins,Vernon deck and Olivier Gittler

Attunga world premier, P1 Munich, Sunday the 28th of January
Last Sunday on the first night of ISPO, Attunga was shown to the general public for the first time. We teamed up with longtime friends, media partner, and snowboard magazine extraordinary - Pleasure, because when it comes to throwing parties in Munich, nobody does it better. By the times doors opened at the P1 club, the line to get in was over a hundred meters long. Come 11 o’clock, Terje Haakonsen introduced the movie to the overenthusiastic spastic snowboard crowd. At 12:30, the boy wonder, aka the not so petit prince with his magic fingers and slightly less magic amplifier came on stage and introduced his band LEOPARD Ale. Within seconds, yours truly was violently pushed into the back corners of the venue by a lynch mob of, hmmm… let’s just call them female fans (we do live in #metoo times after all). It was close to Beatles mania all over again. After LEOPARD Ale’s historical gig, Nasty Mondays took over, and it was around this time our beloved Seth Huot (Attunga movie director) was kicked out for letting off too much steam. Not an easy task to accomplish, kudos Seth. The rest is as they say, staying on tour. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Thank you to everyone that came out, Chris Heubl and Pleasure Magazine, Martin Herrmann for photos, and Jeff and Seth for coming all the way from the US. Moments before detonation Terje and Nicolas Gregor Friday and Olivier Gittler Tim Allenet and Olivier Gittler The band, some Volcom people and a guy who was pushed all the way to the back Seth Huot and Vernon Deck Nasty Mondays
