Our second year in New Orleans as a team. REVERIE opened Bayou St. Blonde, a show presented by The Left Brian Group. Garrett Markenson, with the help of Roxie, Joi, and Katie presented 5 models. The art direction was centered around "BANGS" provocateur. Gamine Vanguard inspiration to liberate and diversify. Javier did the Make Up focusing on eyes, while complimenting the bangs. Overall a modern minimal finished look. The show was sold out with over 200 hairdressers from around the country. REVERIE MAPS ZERO launched. A magazine created by Garrett and produced by FISK. MAPS is an amalgamation of style, culture, and travel. A reimagination of the way we think about hair and styling. It’s a collaborative en- deavor as well. An endeavor that seeks to open doors, make you think or just be. We also launched limited edition "COIFF YOU" crew sweatshirt that sold out. The trip was a success, filled with good food and beignets!!
Today we celebrated Caitlin and her hair painting skills. She led a class teaching us step by step her methods and techniques. Education is essential in a hairdressers growth and success. We are constantly talking class all over but nothing is more special than to watch a Coiffure Team Member shine.

May 21st, 2017 - Tour de Coiffure team got their ride on at the 5th Annual Tour de Pier at the iconicManhattan Beach Strand. At this event we rode stationary bikes to help raise money for Pancreatic cancer research. A wonderful time was had by all involved!!
We are humbled and proud to share that together we raised $1.25 million this past Sunday, bringing our five year total to more than $4 million. A most heartfelt thank you to everyone who cycled, cheered, volunteered and donated to the 5th Annual Skechers Tour de Pier in support of the Hirshberg Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research, the Uncle Kory Foundation and the Cancer Support Community Redondo Beach. We are filled with gratitude for all those who shared their talents, time, treasure and passion to make Tour de Pier 2017 the best one yet!
New Orleans, Louisiana— February 2, 2017, The Left Brain Group, the premier boutique talent agency, representing hairdressers, impassioned artists and image- makers within hair and beauty, hosted their first ever 2-day lifestyle event on January 29th and 30th, entitled Bayou St. Blonde.
This one of a kind immersive experience showcased 12 elite artists as they explored
7 local spaces, bringing their canvas to life, with New Orleans serving as its backdrop; drawing on the convergence of fashion and culture, alongside curated pieces with local artists. “I set out to create an intimate event where the audience can observe the artists in motion, hear their brand stories and experience the city of New Orleans, up close and personal...aka a Hair-Cation,” said Aryn Detres, President, The Left Brain Group.
The New Orleans Pharmacy Museum played host to Garrett Markenson, founder of REVERIE, Haircare Reimagined. NOPM highlighted the blurred dichotomy between our past of bloodletting, surgical instruments, potions, elixirs and hand-blown apothecary bottles filled with crude drugs, medicine herbs, and “gris-gris” potions used by Voodoo practitioners and the modernity and care of product design today. Inspired by the mystery and mood of the space, the courtyard was designed to resemble a seance circle, lined with candles hand painted by local artist David Moore (aka Zombieboy), while models wore custom headpieces designed by Chloe Rose of GypsyJunk.
Markenson presented three stunning looks including a haircut on model Wednesday Tomorrow Bird which was a continuation of a collaborative color story with Whittemore House co-owner, Larry Raspanti showcasing their new revolutionary lightening powder, HAIR PAINTTM. The end result was very effective, modern short bob with a microbang; full of dimension, movement and interest.
The photo story shot by Carlos Detres was inspired by E.J. Bullocq, the myth of Storyville and the mystique of New Orleans.
