Sorry for having been off the radar a little, we’ve had an extremely busy month! The Guildford and Wimbledon hair salons entered the Schwarzkopf Professional Creative Team Competition which took place on the 15th April so we’ve spent a lot of time preparing. All entries were based on Essential Looks Spring / Summer 2010 collection so they were really current hair styles and very on trend. It was fun being able to experiment with the hair to create a multitude of looks. The Wimbledon branch based our entry on the Cyber Sport collection which was made up of 4 models ie 3 girls and 1 guy. We wanted to use sport but with a futuristic edge. The Guildford John Carne salon based their collection on Punk Goddess.

 We all had a great time participating despite not winning the grand prize! Our Wimbledon team consisted of Alexandra Manton (me!), Jayde Rabbetts, Nigel Harvey and Darren Read.

Anyway finger’s crossed for the next competition…

Alex, x


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….
