ORLY STORMS the runway for Sibling London FASHION WEEK

Sabrina Gayle headed up the nail team for the Sibling London showcase at London Fashion Week, using Orly shades to create looks to complement the collection.
“Sibling London’s SS16 collection took inspiration from one of the oldest luxury tobacco brands in the world – Sobranie of London Cocktail Cigarettes – and we looked at the fun and glamour represented by this brand and replicated it by creating the Gilded French manicure,” Sabrina comments.



“To create this look, we used the two-step hybrid Orly Epix system; ideal for backstage at fashion week as due to its fast drying time and smudge-fixing technology, nails are not affected by outfit changes.”


Cinnatize is a nail surface sanitizer powered by natural cinnamon leaf extract – legendary for its ability to fight surface bacteria.
Nail pros are invited to saturate a lint-free pad with Cinnatize and scrub the nail plate and surrounding soft tissues thoroughly using firm pressure prior to applying other nail coatings.


“We are over the moon to be releasing Cinnatize onto the market this September,” says Jim Nordstrom of creator Famous Names in the USA. “Cinnatize is bringing back the best in quality to nail sanitizers. With a product you use in absolutely every service, you deserve to have the very best. And wait until you smell it. Our testers kept begging us for more – they didn’t want to go back to what they used before!”


A hotly anticipated addition to Marquee’s extensive screenplay of KEVIN.MURPHY treatments - TREAT.ME gives an added injection of deep conditioning, nourishment and shine with long lasting results in just 15 minutes!

The foundation for the KEVIN.MURPHY TREAT.ME range is skincare for the hair. Designed for a professional in-salon experience, the TREAT.ME range contains full strength treatments that use the best of nature and technology with skincare technology.



Women’s hair does not respond to a generic ‘one size fits all’ approach to treatments and masques. The idea of a basic masque is very nonspecific, nor does it target any hair issues in particular. After researching and testing a myriad of ingredients, KEVIN.MURPHY found that a serum type treatment, like the one found in skincare, could be very effective due to the high concentration of active ingredients.
“I used an all-vegetable and plant protein system with over 26 amino acids alone coming from plants. These plant “Super Proteins” are very close to the hair’s structure; therefore they penetrate easily, the results on the hair show that vegetable and plant proteins strengthen the hair shaft by depositing themselves in the gaps created by heat styling and chemical services, making the surface more elastic and smoother.”

Marquee’s hair masters apply the treatment masque, followed by an invigorating head massage to stimulate the scalp. The client is then sat under a moisture mist machine for approximately 20 minutes. The steam produced from the machine opens up the hair cuticle allowing the treatment to penetrate deep into the hair shaft. Once the treatment has finished the steamer closes the hair cuticle by blowing out cold steam onto the hair.
