THERE will be enough variety on offer at the forthcoming Cosmetics, Hair and Beauty Exhibition to please even the most discerning visitor. Exhibitors are aware that, for their products and services to make any impact at all, they will have to be a little off-beat. A selection of some of the items on offer proves that those who have taken a booth at the fair are prepared to show what they are capable of producing. With Italy being such a major player in the world of beauty and style, it is not surprising that the Italian cosmetics industry has a large representation at the expo. The range is strong: a company called Damascar, based in Milan, has produced a line of make-up pencils that is being labelled ''the new way of making-up in the 21st century''. The line's biggest selling point is that instead of carrying around compacts, brushes and sponges, all a woman needs is a few pencils. With the brand name MATI, a woman can apply lipstick, eye shadow and even foundation using these pencils. On the hi-tech front, Arianna International has put out an item called ''automatised, sequential, energy, figure modeller''. The company claims that in just eight sittings it can help to mould a woman's body, via a complicated computer system, resulting in toning of the breast and abdomen. If that does not interest you, consider the ''Robot Machine'' from Jean Klebert, which, among other things, makes advanced skin creams and cosmetics. Its Beauty Farm single-use disposable clinic involves a client being placed in a large plastic bag with only their head free. The bag is then filled with hot air to create a ''Turkish bath'' effect. Those curious about liposuction can have their questions answered by Jean Jacques Legrand of Paris, who will be at the expo courtesy of beauty distributor Tiger Eye Ltd. The doctor will speak on the sometimes controversial methods of collagen injections, liposuction and surgical procedures for baldness. And, for a truly exotic flavour, an Indian-based company, Okhla Chemicals, will bring in pure and natural rose products - fragrances that are extracted through water distillation from dew-covered hand-picked petals. In the past, rose oils have been used in perfumes like Joy, Paris and Beautiful, but the exhibitors are out to prove that natural rose water can be used as a refresher. Rose aroma is perfect as an air freshener and natural rose oil is what gives perfumes and toilet preparations their fragrance.
