San Martino di Lupari, May 22nd 2016. The Third Echosline National Meeting with the entire Sales Force was held in Abano Terme with the Terme all’Alba Hotel as a magnificent setting.

Some important innovative products were presented either for color and treatment field: Luxury, the new line, has been very successful and is now inserted in the strengthened and appreciated Seliàr family.

“When dehydrated hair appears dry, dull and lifeless, their essential needs is to receive an intense and instant HYDRATION and an extraordinary BRIGHTNESS” said the Echosline Product Manager Sara Moras during the introductive stage of the presentation.

For this reason Echosline presents Seliàr Luxury, an innovative professional SYSTEM able to totally regenerate dry, dull and dehydrated hair, leaving it shiny, silky and full of life.

The line consists of 3 products:

Luxury Shampoo that hydrates the hair fiber and nourishes it in depth with an extraordinary shine

Luxury Mask, a concentrated and instant action, that in only 1 minute of application visibly transforms the hair and brings 15 matchless benefits

Luxury Oil, the new cosmetic booster for hair that can be used either on its own as a finishing touch, or mixed with any of the Echosline masks to boost shine.

“It is then – said, taking the floor, the Marketing Director Dimitri Markomichelakis – a triptyque that donate matchless vitality, exceptional smoothness and shimmering reflections.”

The strong point of this line is the EXTRA-GLOSS TECHNOLOGY, developed thanks to a multi-vitamin complex of 5 vitamins, chosen from the most important for the hair fiber, and a Blend of plant oils to nourish and regenerate the hair, restoring softness and shine.

“With Seliàr Luxury – concluded Sara Moras - Echosline introduces it own interpretation of hair luxury, offering to the hairstylist some innovative products for an unrivaled cosmetic result, concentrated but light formulations for an instant action, results from the first application and an inebriating fragrance of Argan and Magnolia for an enchanting sensory experience.”

The 19-metre-tall ornament was first installed in 1960.

Everyone has a Giant Santa story

The behemoth 19-metre-tall ornament has been bringing festive cheer to the city for the best part of six decades — despite its creepy come hither finger and winking stage. But now the city's Giant Santa and accompanying giant reindeer and gifts are taking a one-way trip back to the North Pole (or garbage dump) after one final Christmas.

The Santa was first installed on the Farmers building on Hobson Street in 1960, crowned as the largest fibreglass Santa in the world. It then enjoyed a stint in Manukau, before losing the trademark finger and wink in a $100,000 makeover for its most recent home on the corner of Queen and Victoria Streets in Auckland CBD. Every festive season, the whole five-tonne frame stops traffic as it's erected above Farmers.

Heart of the City says there are a combination of reasons why Giant Santa is retiring. "We love Santa too so it wasn't an easy decision but to store, maintain and assemble Santa costs over two hundred thousand dollars a year and with another refresh due imminently, now is a fitting time for Santa to take a well-earned rest."

The organisation says it is already underway in thinking about how Christmas could be celebrated here in the future. "In the new year we will involve the city centre community in exploring what Christmas 2020 and beyond could look like."

There's still plenty of festive cheer to experience in the CBD, from larger-than-life decorations to Santa's Enchanted Forest at Smith & Caughey's and the Late Night Christmas event on 19 December featuring over 90 street performances.

Giant Santa will appear one last time from Sunday 10 November before hanging up his red coat for good on Friday 10 January. If you would like to say goodbye to Santa and share your special memories you can upload them via Heart of the City or share them using the hashtag #FarewellSanta.
