Lively En Mode
A New York City-based full-service image consultancy with an unmatched background in the beauty industry; as such, Lively En Mode serves as an incubator and educational hot-spot for stylists and career-professionals. Lively En Mode’s image consulting services are the culmination of 30 years of beauty industry experience at the cutting edge of culture and societal trends. Lively En Mode predicates itself on the notion that image is not just what you wear or what you say, but it is the way in which you present yourself that solidifies your image.
We offer a host of personal and professional services including personal shopping and styling for: dating, job interviews, men’s grooming, bridal and special occasions. From the beginning of Colin Lively’s career, he reigned as the “golden boy of hair”. He has owned many successful salons, and worked with a multitude of high profile clients earning him the title of the “society hairdresser.” Lively is a revered fixture in the beauty industry; and, as a Lively protégé, you will learn all the tools you need live the image that suits you best.
Colin is a West Virginia-born beauty interpreter and consultant with an eye for art, an unmatched breadth of cultural knowledge, and enough technical know-how to give the best stylists a run for their money.
He started his journey at The Cleveland Institute of Art with a concentration in fashion and painting; however, faced with the sudden loss of his father, he had to surmount the challenge of going to college and creating income. Luckily, Colin’s keen eye for color and his avant-garde interpretation of the world afforded him the ability to provide a universally needed service: hairstyling.
As a protégé of Kenneth Battelle, George Clay, and Leon Amendola, coupled with his uncanny ability to meld one’s skin, eye and hair tones into a stunning new look for all those who sat in his chair: it was not long thereafter that he had lines out the door of the salon for which he worked.
To accommodate his ever-increasing demand, Colin opened Today’s Headlines Salons; effectively positioning him—and his salon—at the vanguard of the major cultural and political transformation that overtook the country in the 1970s. Colin pushed the boundaries and changed the culture of hair and style across Cleveland, Palm Beach and Seattle.
What’s more, after opening several larger salons under the Today’s Headlines Salons umbrella, Colin was lured to New York City to serve as Artistic Director for the Elizabeth Arden Red Door Salons. He served in this capacity for ten years, whereafter he became a freelance hairstylist.
For fifteen years, Colin has styled the anointed heads of New York City; and now, after over twenty years of absence, he is serving both New York City and Cleveland—a very long anticipated return.
