This is a true personal story and also can be used as a model within our industry on the help we get from the so-called UPPER CRUST!
For our second Documentary of the REAL HAIR TRUTH we will be featuring ENTREPENAURS in a section of the film. Beauty industry professionals who have taken the time to create their own Haircare Products, Educational Dvd’s, Haircolor, Books, Videos, etc. It is important to really feel the pulse of the industry from within, and to see and advertise the true BLUE COLLARS of our industry. So many times we go to the wayside within our industry, only to be bought out, and watch as the manufacturers will control the industry and not give you the time of the day. And not let any new idea’s flourish within our industry!!! In the next coming months the REAL HAIR TRUTH will be launching a website for all industry ENTREPENAURS to advertise, and present there Products, Dvd’s. Class’s. Haircolor, and most of all their passion to create a change in our profession. And to be with like-minded professionals in our craft to network! Breaking away from MANUFACTURER DIVERSION is the best choice you can make now in the industry. And if the industry will not help you the REAL HAIR TRUTH WILL!

No ego’s, no stars, no attitudes that is how I describe the 2 full days we shot with Phil Stone, Claudia Diesti, Dan Diesti, Dan Cunningham, La’Niece, Matt Fienman, and myself. This was the start for Claudia’s DVD on haircoloring, haircutting, hairstyling, and a biography of herself and her beliefs. These 2 days were filled with the most remarkable, ambitious, giving professionals that could be put together in one room. So many different professionals were there to pull this off. And so much clowning around to the fullest extent, that I would love to do this again with the same exact group. This was Phil Stones first taping of an educational DVD series for his website REWIREDHAIR.COM. And Dan Cunningham who filmed and edited the documentary THE REAL HAIR TRUTH took on this undertaking with Matt Fienman who was also in charge of videography. And Dan Diesti Claudia’s husband was the everything role. From food, to hair supplys, to makeup to wardrobe. Dan did it all. And for once I could kick back and just do makeup and I also helped with the photoshoot. Either way we did a little of everyone’s profession with the staff for the DVD. And learning was top on the agenda with this shoot.
Learning was on everyone’s mind the past two days with this shoot. Phil with Dan learning Videography, Myself learning from Claudia – Balayage, everyone had education on their minds. And getting the proper filming within this two-day event was close to 24 hours of filming, setting up the stage, supply runs, etc. But we all pulled together to shoot Claudia and get the best footage we could possibly get for her DVD. All in all we all got the job done and there was a moment in time that I will always remember these two days of my career, That we all pulled together and did a positive for everyone, the Industry, Claudia, Phil, everyone. And to get that type of group together is sheer priceless. And all the time went so very fast I will truly remember this DREAM. Or maybe this wonderful moment.
Thank You Phil, Claudia, Dan, Daniel, Matt, La’Niece, and all the models.
