WHAT IS FACIAL ROLLING?

Originally a traditional Chinese beauty tool made of jade, gemstones, rose quartz or amethyst, facial rollers were used as beauty ritual to effectively massage the face, ease puffiness, stimulate the lymph encouraging drainage and increase the blood flow to create a natural glow.

WHY IS IT BENEFICIAL?

Like a face lift without the down time, facial massaging is a quick and effective way of ensuring the skin looks and feels its best. By applying a facial roller in your routine and taking 10 minutes to roll through the massage techniques, it then is encouraging benefits that will change the structure of your face whilst working the face muscles that may not be used to the work.

HOW TO FACIAL ROLL WITH JOANNA CZECH

JOANNA’S FACIAL MASSAGE

Designed to encourage your skin’s circulation, elasticity and tone, this massage will also stimulate lymphatic drainage for a more sculpted appearance. This protocol should be done over a 111SKIN mask to maximise the products efficacy. The result is skin treated at several levels (the epidermis, fascia and subcutaneous tissue) for a truly transformed complexion.

STEP 1

Starting from the centre of the chin place your jawbone between each roller and roll up to just below your ear. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 2

Starting from the centre of your mouth place your lips between each roller and roll up to the middle of your ear. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 3

Starting from your nose place roll up from under your cheekbones to the top of your ear. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 4

Starting from the inside of your eyebrow place your brow bone between each roller and roll along your eyebrow. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 5

Starting from the centre of your forehead and roll up to 1" into the hairline. Add 2–3 more sections to cover full forehead. Follow with neck roll.

STEP 6

Starting at your clavicle roll up to the back of your ear. Add 2–3 more sections to cover neck muscle, but do not massage the centre of your throat.

With extensive research and refinement, the Joanna Czech Facial Massager is made to work on a deeper level that coins the tool a cut above the rest. Made from aliminium and zinc alloys, they cryo roller, once pressed and ran across the skin, immediately lifts and tighten the face.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
