Specialists on our field
Have you ever wandered what DEMODA means? Well after Martine did extensive travelling through Spain, she kept coming across the name Moda...which means 'Fashion'. As a hairdresser she was always considering a good name for her salon that could be easily recognisable as a brand. Though, she didn't like the name Moda on its own, so she used 'de' which in Spanish means 'in', and pushed the two words together to form one word meaning 'InFashion' which is DEMODA. Which we feel is very representative of the industry.
I started DEMODA as an organic hair and beauty salon, because my first job within hairdressing, I was getting sick each time I used a particular black tint. I was taken home poorly on 3 occasions! At that early stage in my career, after realising and linking this issue to my health, I wanted to seek out the products that were less harmful to the health of myself and my guests.
I also gained industry related asthma when I worked for a big chain of salons, and this has had a real impact on my mission to find cleaner products.
Back then, (am I really saying that? Oh my Lordy!) there was barely anything around in terms of organic and natural, and I had no control over the products used because I was working for other salons.
I entered a competition on Hairdressers Journal online, I won! I couldn't believe it! I was sent a complete range of colours and products from NATULIQUE. I hadn't heard about them before, but my image really resinated with their ethos and that is why they chose my image as the winning image.
At the time I was using AVEDA, and I loved it, so at home I would use the NATULIQUE colours on my friends and family. They were the same kind of tones of Aveda only they were lasting longer before fading. I absolutely loved them!
I swore to myself at that point, as soon as I open my own salon, I will be using NATULIQUE. Around 8 years later, here we are. I was using it for freelance customers, but it's expensive, not everyone wanted it. So now, we use this alongside Intelligent Nutrients at the salon.
Intelligent Nutrients, funnily enough, was made and founded by Horst Rechelbacher who made AVEDA, only it is organic, non-toxic, food grade, you can even wash your vegetables with the shampoo and conditioners, it's that safe.
