HAIR-PERACTIVE EVO-LUTION AT PAUL GERRARD

AFTER.

WITH MY DEAR FRIEND AND LONG-TIME STYLIST AT PAUL GERRARD, ROBIN LOMAS.
EVO PRODUCTS AT PAUL GERRARD HONG KONG
THE EVO FAMILY OF PRODUCTS USED FOR OUR NEW LOOK:

GANGSTA GRIP TO GIVE SHAPE AND VOLUME
HELMUT (HELMET?) TO KEEP IT ALL IN PLACE, ALL NIGHT
LOVE TOUCH TO GIVE HAIR A BEAUTIFULLY FINISHED SHEEN.
JAMES GANNABAN
WE IMMEDIATELY TOOK OUR NEW 'DO OUT FOR A WALK
AND PROCEEDED TO TAKE A BAJILLION SELFIES.

How appropriate that Evo's slogan is "Saving Ordinary Humans From Themselves." We badly needed saving. Fast. We were freefalling into the brackish cesspool of self-pity due to unfabulous hair. Our dear friend, superstar stylist Robin Lomas, was out of action for a while due to muscular discomfiture in his neck and arm. We naturally suffered with him.  

"My little moon-face," Chris calls us when our hair starts to grow out. "You look like a fat 12 year old!" It's true.

Panicked, we rang up Robin on Monday.

"Doll," we breathed, "are you well enough to cut hair, or should I submit myself to the hair butchers in Sheung Wan? I'm the MC at the 10th anniversary party of  Sense of Touch in Bisous tonight and I'm desperate for a fix!"

"Come at 3.30pm," Robin said, attempting to calm our growing hysteria. He doubtless sensed the escalating panic in our voice.

"All right," Robin sat us down as soon as we arrived at Paul Gerrard. "What shall we do with your hair today?"

"Don't know..." we replied. Our brain had shut down.

"What sort of event are you hosting? Where's it gonna be? Who's in the guest list?" Robin fired off.

"Society event," we answered dutifully, "spa lovers, the Tatler crowd."

"Smooth and sleek," Robin decided.

He expertly clipped the sides of our hair close to our head to give our face a longer, less moon-face look. He kept the length up top and just thinned it out so it's not bushy and out of control.

After my hair was washed and shampood, he applied a generous amount of a trio of Evo products. Gangsta Grip to create shape and volume, Helmut to hold everything place, and Love Touch to give my entire head an obscenely shiny finish. We felt very Hollywood.  

And so that's how we ended up with a serious "We mean biniz" gangsta 'do.

We've been saved.

Loving the 'after' hair very much. And how Hyperactive referring to himself in pleural. Perhaps he knows that we can't get enough of just ONE Hyperactive?

:p

Thanks Jason. Robin did such a fab job.

We use the royal "we" because "I" and "my" are tiresome - as if we weren't self-absorbed enough!
