We photographed this denim editorial 13 years ago with the stunning Marie N´Dao and her “Grace Jones attitude” in the Baixa Chiado apartment of hair stylist and friend of ZOOT Helena Vaz Pereira.
Today, the 22nd of September 2022, Helena is celebrating three important events: her birthday, the inauguration of her new Salon in Rua da Atalaia 63*, Bairro Alto, Lisbon and the 35th anniversary of her professional career. We wish “Nossa Senhora dos Cabelos” a great party in her honor!
ZOOT beauty editor Antonia Rosa:
Helena is my artistic soul mate. In addition to admiring Helena as a woman, mother, muse and worker… I love her. She is simply my balance at work. She was always by my side in the worst moments of my life and I always tried to be a friend, always available to her for the worst moments of her life. A friendship without beginning and without end.
Dino Alves, fashion designer and friend:
Helena is a great human being and this is the most important. She is a sensitive person, which transpires in her work. We created many fashion images together and it is always a huge satisfaction [to work with her] because we feel she has a great pleasure while working, and this itself is an inspiration. She is a big professional who mixes technical knowledge with an instinctive attitude and also good taste. We love Helena!
