92 BEAUTY LAUNCHPAD AUGUST 2019 Industry Feed COURTESY OF MANUFACTURERS IN MEMORIAM It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Patrick Alès at 88 years old. e legendary Parisian hairdresser, who styled everyone from Catherine Deneuve to Jackie Kennedy, notably went on to found plant-based hair and skincare company PHYTO. Alès served in various leadership positions with the brand for more than 50 years, up until his retirement in 2018. He will be missed by those in his network as well as the industry at large, and is survived by his family and tremendous legacy of plant-based beauty. MEET THE INDIVIDUALS BEHIND THE INDUSTRY'S LEADING BRANDS. Getting to Know You MY MAIN GOAL WITH THE COMPANY IS: Creating an education team with the talent and passion to teach the most advanced aspects of our amazing industry. LEADERSHIP MEANS: Knowing where you're leading, constantly trying to achieve more, pulling those you're leading up beside you, and giving credit where it's due. e biggest responsibility of leading is sharing yourself—you need a team that believes in you before you can be a true leader. IN FIVE YEARS I SEE THE HAIR INDUSTRY: riving. It's often said that our industry is recession-proof; everyone wants to be made to feel and look beautiful. e great thing about our industry is that it runs in cycles; what was in 10 years ago is guaranteed to come back with a little twist. I GET INSPIRED BY: Everything from the masters of art, music and literature to the most current pop culture. Mainly what inspires me is other people, like seeing beauty school students get excited when they learn something new. MY FAVORITE WAY TO UNWIND IS: Having a quiet night at home with my soul mate of 22 years, a glass of wine and a good movie. MY TOP VACATION DESTINATION IS: Europe. I especially love the Netherlands and the Dutch people. WHEN I THINK OF BEAUTY, I THINK OF: All the faces that have been in my chair and in my life. I truly believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and is all around us. I WORK IN PROFESSIONAL BEAUTY BECAUSE: I've been in this industry since I was 18 years old, and I can't imagine doing anything else. Å WILLIAM WHATLEY, Creative Artistic Education Director for Robanda International PATRICK ALÈS
