Long DescriptionHair Heroes, a new book by Michael Gordon, founder and owner of Bumble and bumble, celebrates true legends in hairdressing as heroic figures. "It's important to recognize those who have raised the bar and forced hairdressers who followed to reach higher and achieve more," says Gordon. "Ours is an artisan craft but for reasons I do not understand we don't pay homage to the artists who have preceded us."

Hair Heroes features interviews with twelve masters of modern hairdressing: Kenneth, who Jacqueline Kennedy trusted with her hairstyle and her secrets; Gene Shacove, the inspiration for the film Shampoo; Alexandre, the charming friend of Jean Cocteau and stylist to all of France's elite; Luis Llongueras, who put the curl in Salvador Dali's mustache; Aldo Coppola, the highly successful master of Italian hairdressing; Sam Lapin, the father of modern hair color who turned Norma Jean blonde; Christiaan, the session stylist who was known to lop off the hair of unsuspecting fashion editors when they weren't looking; Irma Kusely, who was responsible for Lucille Ball's signature red hair; Sydney Guilaroff, who was the first stylist to demand on screen credit raising the recognition of the profession and who has held more screen credits than any leading actor; Leonard Lewis, London's swinging seventies man of the hour; Annie Humphreys, a famed colorist who invented the first wash-and-wear perm; Vidal Sassoon, who started a revolution and changed the way we all cut hair today.

Here we will demonstrate the most basic example of importing the CSV data files that we produce on this site into your MySQL database.

For information about various databases you can use and how to import CSV files into them, please view the overview article "Importing CSV data into your database".

For this example, we are going to import the product data CSV file out of the but this same process will work on the full data download file. We will also be executing the commands in the MySQL Workbench but you can also use the command line tool with the same commands if you like.

First, start by creating a blank table. Use the table layout described in the read_me file for the most up-to-date table layout. It is suggested that you not use any indexing at this point. You can add indexes later. It is most likely that you will have your own tables where you want to store your data so importing the CSV files can be done into temporary tables and then later copied over to your tables. Leaving off the indexes and constraints on these import tables reduces the risk of import errors. Here is an example:

create table ean_product
    EAN13             varchar(13),
    UPCA              varchar(12),
    UPCE              varchar(8),
    SKU               varchar(200),
    PriceNew          numeric(15,2),
    PriceUsed         numeric(15,2),
    PriceDate         date,
    company           varchar(13),
    product           varchar(100),
    description       varchar(100),
    category          int,
    url               varchar(500),
    created           datetime,
    modified          datetime

Next we perform the import using the LOAD DATA INFILE command. The path to the file depends on where you saved the data and which operating system you are on. For Windows users you might find your file on the C: drive and Linux users may find your date in your home (~) folder. This example shows a Linux import. Only the path would be different between the operating systems.

    INFILE '~/sample_ean_data/sample_ean_product.csv' 
    INTO TABLE ean_product

Finally, lets look at the data that we just imported.


You may have seen some warnings after the import command. If you are concerned about these warnings, examine the data. It could be that some data has grown beyond the size specified in the read_me file. If you are worried, make the fields larger and try the process again after deleting all of the data out of the table.
