Something for the weekend (Hacienda Hairdressers #1) 
Vidal hairdressers were no strangers to certain nights at The Hacienda, but regulars may recall one in particular: Nick Arrojo was a popular attendee and would occasionally turn DJ alongside Pickering and Sasha.

"It was 1987 and Manchester was transforming into 'Madchester'" and it was an exciting time" he recently told the Manchester Evening News (not available online). "I did the hair for the members of Happy Mondays and New Order - happy days!".

Moving Stateside, Nick now runs his own salon - Arrojo Studio - in New York's SoHo district and is resident hairdresser on TLC America's version of 'What Not To Wear'.

Arrojo Product - his new "easy to understand" hair stuff ("Defrizz Serum in eight words: eliminates frizz, controls fly-aways and eases excess volume") - is now available online and will be available in the UK through Space nk in January 2008.

"We're expanding our premises to create an Arrojo academy, Arrojo products store and a creative office. The design concept has been inspired by the Factory Records office in Manchester - functional, seminal and iconic".

Will the cerysmatic budget stretch to a 500 buck consultation with the man himself?
