O&M: Flying in all the way from Australia, Original&Mineral featured owner Alan Buki and Creative Director Janelle Chaplin. A newer beauty brand in the U.S., O&M was developed 13 years ago, by hairdressers for hairdressers in hopes of transforming people’s attitudes through their hair styles. Buki talked about the history of the brand, and how his history with contact dermatitis ultimately led him to creating the brand. “When I went to the UK for work, I realized the products I was using didn’t aggravate my skin, It’s because everything I was working with was ammonia-free. I realized that I needed to use ammonia-free products for the rest of my life to save my career, that’s when I started O&M.”
Later in the presentation Chaplin showed the audience how to re-create a number of Fashion Week looks using the products from the line.
