Vanessa Lamont

Also known as Miss V, Vanessa has brought her love of coffee, dancing, and bawdy sense of humor to a variety of roles at LUSH. She started working her moves on the shop floor in Victoria, BC, and crossed the ocean to Vancouver to take the reins as the Customer Care manager. From there her witty wordplay landed her the dream job of LUSH Times Editor. She also had the honor of working with the Charity Pot team, before moving on to start the Content department. The proud winner of the "Most Inappropriate Comment" award is putting her passion for LUSH and words to good use, we hope so anyway. When she isn't tip-tapping on the keyboard, Vanessa can be found drinking (more) coffee, perusing the local Farmer's Market, riding her bikes, going for long walks with her dog, or practicing her dance moves.

School of Henna

Long before LUSH was LUSH, Mark Constantine LUSH founder and inventor studied as a trichologist - someone who studies the health of the hair and scalp. With over 30 year of experience, Mark has been working with henna formulations since the late 1970s, and has even written a book on herbal hair colors. When it comes to hair, Mark is our resident expert.

While it has been many years since he started working in a hair salon, (now he spends his days tinkering in his lab inventing products and perfumes), Mark went back to the chair to teach a master class in henna. If you've ever had questions, or struggled with the best way to apply henna it's time to sit at the front of the class/ your computer, and take notes.

... there may be a test afterwards.
