Nikki Sherman here!

I had such a great weekend! I was over in Letterkenny in Ireland with the Artistic Team doing a show for Schwarzkopf Professional. I was responsible for the colouring side of things and making sure that the models colours looked amazing! The theme was ‘Twisted’ so I had to come up with some new and inspiring colour techniques. There was alot of preparation involved but it was great to present my work on stage. It was my first big show and it was challenging, but really enjoyed the experience and had lots of fun !

Flying Visit…

November 13, 2009

Andy here, Artistic Director, wow what a manic week I have had! Flew to Ireland on Monday morning at 10am, then arrived in Dublin at 11.30am, then had a 1 1/2 hour journey to a salon in Longford called Grafters – they have 3 salons in the area. I had a class of 18 stylist and had to do a Creative Cutting Seminar on local clients provided by Grafters so I really had to think on the spot to come up with strong yet wearable techniques and hairstyles that would suit each client. The looks were fab and they were a great team to teach. Finished at 6pm then drove back to the airport and flew home. Got through the house door about 10.45pm….Soo tired!! Rest of week been busy with clients and preparing the huge exhibition we have this weekend in Letterkenny, show blocks, cutting and colouring techniques, clothes stylists it goes on… !! All in all it’s been a good weeks work though ha ha.

Will keep ya all posted about the weekend when I return, Wish us luck….

Aaron running through ideas with Meg and DelIt’s Aaron here (pictured with Del from Hair and a reader from Hair magazine), I’m the Assistant Art Director at John Carne Hairdressing. Just wanted to keep you in the loop with a sneak preview of some shots from our Hair Magazine shoot! We had a fun filled day on shoot in Old Street where we gave three readers a fabulous makeover. Stewart, Jodie & Billie helped me on hair whilst I also directed. It was nice touching base with Del and Charley from Hair magazine, and working together as a team to discuss hairstyles and being creative which is what we love doing most as hairstylists! The lovely Lindsay Poole did the girls makeup whilst we set to work to transform the readers luscious locks from drab to fab!

  • Lizzie was going travelling so wanted something simple yet stunning to leave her looking refreshed for her future challenges so we added some layers for added volume.

  • Meg had lovely long blonde locks so we ran a mix of tones through her hair to give brighten it up whilst highlighting her facial features.

  • Sam had a lot of hair and wanted a Megan Fox look, which worked wonders. Check out the January issue of Hair magazine to see the final results!

Then the day finished off with a glass of champers for a great team effort…. before heading back to Guildford.
