The Trevor Sorbie Artistic Team




The Trevor Sorbie Artistic Team has never been a stronger and more creative place. Drawing from each team members individual styles and strengths, ensures that each collection breaks new ground in what’s possible with hair. From the iconic freehand colour work by Creative Colour Director John Spanton, to the original concepts of Artistic Director Tom Connell, this team strive to continue Trevor’s legacy of challenging the status quo.

While in constant demand for show, education and editorial work across the globe the Trevor Sorbie Artistic team continue to keep the craft of original hairdressing at the core of everything they do.

Moving up from Art Team 2 and moving into the Art Team is Davide Spinelli. Davide joined Trevor Sorbie over 4 years ago. His dedication to cutting hair quickly propelled him onto the education team and soon after followed his appointment to AT2, a junior art team set up to develop young talent in the company. After 2 Years of development Davide’s passion and original way of thinking caught the attention of Trevor and Tom Connell who invited him to sit his Artistic Team test, an hour-long seminar watched by the whole company. His 4 years of dedication and commitment culminated in Davide passing his test and taking his position on the Trevor Sorbie Artistic team.

Tom Connell says, “Davide Spinelli has a very unique way of thinking which is invaluable to me when constructing our shoot and show concepts. I am very much looking forward to collaborating with him on our future projects.”

I am very proud of everything we have achieved so far in helping people who are suffering from medical hair loss. “However, there is still much more to be done, and in recent years, it has been my dream to take mynewhair overseas. We are extremely grateful for the support of Sisters and L’Oreal Middle East for helping us to achieve our vision of expanding mynewhair internationally.

“I am thrilled to be leading the charity’s first international training seminar and workshop together with my training team, as well as having the opportunity to engage with hospitals in Dubai to discuss the importance of wig provision for those affected by alopecia and cancer. This is a big development for the charity and it is amazing that we can now have a positive impact and support even more people living with medical hair loss.”

ClubStar Art Team Learn from Marc Antoni Team




A trio of stylists from Marc Antoni salons were the latest industry insiders to lend their expertise to the ClubStar Art Team Education Day. Award-winning stylists Dan Spiller, Altin Ismaili and Daniel Bryan recently spent the day at the Wella World Studio in London, where they taught cut, colour and styling skills to the ClubStar Art Team.

One of the key components of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing is mentoring the next generation of hairdressing talent. Members from across the country give up their time to pass on their skills, knowledge and ideas to their industry peers. Former Fellowship president Bruno Marc of Marc Antoni salons knows better than most the value of sharing education, and it was his influence which led some of the stars of his salon group to mentor at the ClubStar Art Team education day.

The day started with a presentation from Dan, Altin and Daniel, who shared images, learning and anecdotes from their own careers to date. They then demonstrated some of the highlights of the latest Marc Antoni collection on models, showcasing skills in cut, colour and styling. The four styles showcased a series of takes on blonde – from on-trend blush pink to a softer update on balayage lengths – and a variety of cuts, from a disconnected crop to choppy layers.

In the afternoon, it was over to the ClubStar Art Team to work on their own models, using the techniques they had been taught in the morning to bring the Marc Antoni influence into their work. They then presented their models back to the rest of the group, providing another chance to improve on their presentation skills and gain feedback from the experts.

Team member Jo Pacey from KH Hair commented: “The Marc Antoni team showed us a great variety of cuts, colour and styling techniques. They were very enthusiastic and inspired us to utilise some of the techniques we had learnt so that we could create our own looks. I have definitely taken away some new and exciting techniques to use in the salon.”

HAIR AND VISION MASTERCLASS HELD IN LONDON




The Fellowship for British Hairdressing has transformed its famous masterclasses into a new event, Hair & Vision. The first of these was held at Sway in London – with Angelo Seminara as the headline act.

The Fellowship masterclasses have always been about contemporary hairdressing visionaries presenting their best work and Hair & Vision continues this but offers a greater insight into the famous names taking part. The London event boasted a fantastic line-up:


Angelo Seminara
Jamie Benny, Hare & Bone
Luke Benson
Jordanna Cobella, Cobella Hair
Sean Dawson, Electric Hairdressing
Tina Farey, RUSH
Marcus Giamattei, Marc Antoni Hair
Junior Green, Junior Green Hair
Paul Jamieson, Mahogany Hairdressing
Akin Konizi, Hob Salons
Skyler McDonald, Seanhanna
Anne Veck, Anne Veck Salons

The audience were treated to a bit of everything. From 90’s Latino pop culture vibes from Luke Benson, to incredible seashell texture from Tina Farey, to afro perfection from Junior Green; the level of work across the masters was incredible.

The Fellowship’s new Live Lounge session saw Angelo Seminara taking the hot seat with President Karine Jackson to share his life and career history. Angelo reflected on his first ever hairdressing job in London with Trevor Sorbie in Covent Garden, which he revealed was one of the best experiences of his life. He went on to share funny stories about his early days in hairdressing, including one client’s mousse-heavy blow-dry that lasted a month and a half. Angelo closed the evening with a model presentation, showcasing a graphic but wearable colour technique inspired by optical illusion artist Bridget Riley.

The Fellowship for British Hairdressing was founded in 1946 as the Fellowship of Hair Artists of Great Britain and now covers many areas of the professional hairdressing industry. The Fellowship is an independent, non-political organisation focussing on promoting artistic and creative quality, and providing support for future hairdressing.

The next Hair & Vision event will be held in Glasgow on 30 April 2018.

EVERGREEN HAIRDRESSERS BECOMES LATEST MYNEWHAIR




Evergreen Hairdressers, of Claregate, Wolverhampton, is the latest addition to mynewhair’s network of hairdressers and Salons that Care across the UK and Ireland.

mynewhair provides advice and support to anyone who has experienced medical hair loss. The charity, which was founded by Trevor Sorbie MBE, has a national support network of independent salons and trained hair professionals who provide a wig-customisation service for their clients.

Dawn Bonser, Senior Stylist at Evergreen Hairdressers, completed mynewhair’s nurse-led training for hair professionals. The Level 1 and Level 2 training has equipped her with specialist expertise across all areas of advice, wig-cutting and aftercare.

Dawn said: “I see a lot of fantastic clients who over the years have been affected by cancer. When they would ring up or drop me a note to say they hadn’t been in because they had lost their hair due undergoing chemotherapy treatment I just felt so useless.”

“I went forward for the training with mynewhair because I wanted to be able to offer a service that could help my clients affected by medical hair loss. Both sets of training were great and provided me with exactly what I needed to allow the salon to offer a wig-customisation service and provide advice on wig aftercare. It was also a real confidence boost for me. The help and support provided on the course has allowed me to get started helping clients straight away.”

“I am proud to enable those going through cancer treatment to access the help and support they need locally. The difference that a styled wig can make is tremendous and I’m delighted to be able to help women regain their confidence and feel like themselves again.”

Trevor Sorbie MBE said: “We welcome Dawn from Evergreen Hairdressers to our ever-expanding network of UK-wide Salons that Care. We greatly value the work that all of our hair professionals do for people who suffer from medical hair loss – and we wouldn’t be able to do it without them!“

The charity was launched over 10 years ago and has grown to a network of more than 800 salons.

ClubStar Art Team with Jonathan Andrew




This year’s ClubStar Art Team spent the day with Jonathan Andrew recently at Jamie Stevens Hair’s London salon in Kensington.

Jonathan’s main focus of the day was to demonstrate to the team how to utilise time with a model on a photoshoot. He explained how best to adapt in the moment in a shoot environment by transforming the hair and making small changes.

"It’s so common when you’re starting out to feel the need to get every single hair on the head looking perfect," says Jonathan, "but that doesn’t always translate so well on the camera. In a high stress environment, it’s key to be able to think on the spot and adjust to get the best looks."

Working on a model, he showed the team how to push the limits and offered top tips and tricks on the process of doing so, before taking the team outside for a street-style shoot. Having began his glowing career on an artistic team, Jonathan also took the time to share his hairdressing journey so far with the team.

"Having had a similar start in the industry, it was so rewarding to give back to hairdressers in the same position as I was," he says, "I wanted to express to them how amazing this opportunity is and to grab it with both hands! They are all amazing and a great example of what the Fellowship can offer to stylists who are determined to push their career. An absolute joy and I can’t wait to see how they all grow throughout the year!"

Team member Luke Hawkins from The Marvellous Hair Company says, "What a day! Jonathan rose through the ranks to get to where he is now, and he remains so humble. He has achieved a lot and was very willing and enthusiastic in helping us do the same. Our day spent with him really did prove
why he is one of the most incredible hairdressers in the industry and why he has reached where he is.

Denman announces Paul Stafford as Global Creative Director




British company Denman, maker of the world-famous D3 and other professional tools, is proud to announce the appointment of British Hairdressing Hall of Fame member Paul Stafford as Global Creative Director.

The move brings Paul, who has been using Denman for more than 30 years, into the heart of the long-established, family led company. Paul will lead its creative contribution to the industry, supporting Denman’s education efforts including mentorship of 2017 Denman’s Stage Star competition winner, Sam Carpenter.

As Global Creative Director, Paul will also lead the soon-to-be-launched global ambassador programme, The Denman Global Collective, which features established and emerging stylists from across the globe.

Paul’s appointment coincides with Denman’s 80th anniversary. In 1938, John Denman Dean was inspired by a revolutionary new material, Nylon to create the iconic Denman styling brush. Adopted by world-leading hairstylists including Vidal Sassoon, Paul Mitchell and Andrew Collinge, the D3 and other Denman tools have help transform the industry. This spirit of innovation and transformation continues to guide the brand and Paul will be central to its efforts.

Next month Paul will travel to the US to represent Denman as an educator at the IBS Show in New York City, delivering his inaugural IBS seminar on The Craft of Precision Cutting. Paul will then represent Denman at Cosmoprof Bologna for the formal launch of the Denman Global Collective. On his return, he will create and shoot a new Denman collection with long-time collaborator Lee Mitchell.

‘I treasure the support Denman has given me over the years so am delighted to officially represent the company at an international level,’ said Paul, who, in recent years was asked by Denman to perform at the visionary Alternative Hair Show at London’s Albert Hall. ‘Denman has always been at the heart of the industry, providing the best tools a stylist could wish for at every level of the craft. It’s fantastic to be part of a brand that prioritises excellence and innovation to the benefit of our industry.’

Considered the rock ‘n’ roll maverick of the industry and a break-out Instagram hero, Paul is the perfect partner for Denman, able to bring all his expertise right into the factory to help with product development while giving the company the creative kudos it deserves as the originator of the iconic D3.

Phillip Steele, Managing Director of Denman, said ’We have been very fortunate to have such a friend and partner in Paul over the past 30 years. We are delighted that Paul will play a more substantial role in driving the future of the Denman brand and its presentation globally. I look forward to deepening our partnership and the continuation of our long-standing friendship.’

Known for his impeccable dressing and Mod-inspired personal style almost as much as for his skills with the scissors, Paul is a regular in the press and on TV, where he is sought out for his original views on anything and everything hair and fashion-related. He is a multi-award-winning stylist, currently Hair magazine’s Salon Stylist of the Year and three times winner of Northern Irish Hairdresser of the Year.

The Top Style Trends For Next Season




Steve Rowbottom, Co-Director, Westrow, Reveals The Top Style Trends For Next Season, As Seen At Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2018


SUPER NATURAL



There seemed to be a blow-dry backlash at Fashion Week Spring/ Summer ’18, where the shows were awash with styles that were either air-dried or made to appear that way. Dolce & Gabbana put on not one, but two shows, holding a ‘secret’ off-schedule show, at which models were seen sporting ‘no blow-dry’ blow-dries, the hallmark of which was a very natural, airy texture with a soft kink. At Akris, the ‘no blow-dry’ theme continued in a far less subtle guise, with models sporting styles that were full of natural texture, waves and even a tiny hint of frizz. The key to nailing this look, while keeping a polished appearance, is to embrace natural texture but without letting frizz take hold. A styling cream, chosen according to hair type and texture, will reduce the appearance of frizz and add softness and shine, so that forgoing a blow-dry doesn’t mean compromising on looking well-groomed.

WATER WORKS



We’ve seen sculptured wet styles in previous seasons but the new season brings more of a windswept, deconstructed take on wet-look hair. The Maison Margiela and Marni shows showcased very similar styles – wet-look locks swept away from the face, but ruffled, rather than slick, falling in to loose wet waves. At Tod’s styles looked more rain-licked than drenched wet, with waves falling around the forehead, as if set in place by the wind. Preen’s interpretation of windswept meant the models wore hair stuck to the forehead – slightly less wearable in real-life – while Alberta Ferretti’s girls sported swept-back dampened locks, with loose temple-framing whisps of curl. The look is reminiscent of hair after a blustery spring day or a sweaty exercise session (inspired by post-gym selfies perhaps?) and it’s a look that’s easily replicated. A volumising mousse used on damp hair encourages curls and adds hold, while a dressing cream through the roots of swept-back locks gives the saturated look of Marni and Margiela. Finally, a little wax rubbed between the fingers and then lightly added to the curls around the face will add the necessary definition.

BOY YOU LOOK GOOD



In stark contrast to the ultra-feminine long glossy blow-dry trend, tomboy hair was a standout feature of the Spring/Summer 18 shows, with masculine elements and boyish styles popping up all over Fashion Week. Prada’s models wore ponytails – a traditionally girly style – that had been given a boyish makeover with the addition of heavy sideburns. Short choppy pieces of hair worn in front of the ears gave the ponytails an instantly tomboy vibe. Fendi’s models – which included the Hadid sisters – sported short styles with very blunt side fringes, which looked purposefully mannish and harsh. The vibe was younger at Moschino, but equally as masculine, where 90’s-style Pixie crops had a very boyish feel. Tomboy hair is a surprisingly easy trend to dip in to – either go the whole way and opt for one of the many shorter styles dominating next season’s catwalks, or pick out a boyish feature, such as a choppy cropped fringe, and add it to your current look, keeping the rest of the hair more feminine.

Mynewhair Charity Helps Alopecia Sufferer Regain Her Confidence




A North East mum and alopecia sufferer is raising awareness of the support available to people affected by hair loss, through the charity, mynewhair.

30-year-old Kay Fisher, from Redhouse, Sunderland, was diagnosed with alopecia when she was only 9 years-old.

As she grew up, the mum of one, Kay lost virtually all of her hair and was made to feel like a guinea pig as she underwent various different treatments including steroid injections. She also experienced people turning a blind eye when it came to finding support for hair loss

For the past 10-years Kay has been receiving support from Darren Stuart, Lead Educator and trustee of mynewhair, at East Boldon’s Tribeca Hair Design, Tyne and Wear, following a referral from her local hospital. She regularly visits Darren’s salon every two to three weeks for its affordable wig styling service.

Having regained her confidence, Kay wants to share her story so that other people affected by hair loss can get the help and support they need.

Kay said: "My hair started to come out in small clumps. Something like 10 pence pieces. It was my sister who actually noticed it at first. I didn’t think anything of it because obviously I was only nine and I was naïve.

Gradually over the weeks my hair decided just to fall out nearly everywhere. So I went to the doctors and they couldn’t put their finger on what it actually was and then my mam made an appointment with another doctor within the surgery and they were the ones who actually confirmed that I had alopecia and referred me to the consultants at the hospital
. "

During her journey to learn to live with alopecia, Kay has been and continues to be supported by mynewhair, a national charity founded and inspired by celebrity hair dresser Trevor Sorbie, MBE, which offers a wig styling service for people suffering from cancer and medical hair loss.

Talking about her experiences, Kay said: "Before my hair fell out, it was lily white, poker straight and it was down my back. The hospital where I get my prescriptions from told me about mynewhair and about Darren’s salon.

He made me feel at home and as though he actually cared about what he was doing. And that’s what made me realise there is someone that cares. Some hairdresser that does actually care about what they are doing and how they are trying to help.

mynewhair has trained hundreds of hair professionals around the country to provide a wig styling and advice service to those suffering from medical hair loss. The charity has a 960 strong-network of hairdressers and 835 salons across the UK and Ireland.
"

Kay continued: "I can just get on with Darren as though like a relative or a really good friend. He was able to offer me something that was actually to my style and my standard that I was expecting. It made me feel more confident.

I love getting a new wig. Absolutely love it. Every time it’s like you’re desperate for a new pair of shoes. If they’re falling off your feet you can’t wait to actually get a new pair and that’s how I always feel when I get a new wig.
"

Hair loss in women affects roughly 50% in the UK and more women are seeking methods of non-surgical hair restoration. mynewhair supports those with medical hair loss by providing unbiased public information as well as support and advice.

Kay said: "There is quite a few that do turn a blind eye when it comes to hair loss; the effects it can have on people, how women and men as well as children actually feel when they suffer from having any sort of hair loss condition.

It is not a disease. It’s something that you learn to live with. It is hard at the beginning but look at me. I am totally fine with it. It’s always going to be part of my life.
"

Founder of mynewhair, Trevor Sorbie, MBE said: "The charity offers real support to people suffering from both short and long term hair loss suffers. For many women, like Kay, having a styled wig that’s tailored just for them, can give them a confidence boost and help them feel like themselves again.

I’m very passionate about mynewhair and it’s my aim to highlight what the service can offer and make it accessible to as many people as possible through the wide range of salons, out of hours appointments, and home visit services we offer across the UK and Ireland and we have big ambitions for the future."

mynewhair provides training seminars for hair professionals, following completion of which these professionals become part of their salon network - Salons that Care. They currently have 15 Salons that Care in the North East alone and 18 stylists operating in the salons, including 2 that work at the RVI.

Linton & Mac Hosts Alternative Not Your Average Wedding Event




Linton & Mac, the multi award-winning, independent hairdressing salon in Netherkirkgate, Aberdeen, teamed together with local businesses to host its ‘Not Your Average Wedding’ event.

The event, which was a sell-out success, brought together a creative collaboration of some of the best small businesses in Aberdeen. Held at the super cool events space, Unit 51, brides and grooms were surrounded by inspirational ideas and products to ensure that their upcoming big day is as perfect and unique as can be.

Businesses involved included: Kim Dalglish Florist, Sam Brill Photography, Bonsai Wedding Films, Ivory Grace, The Closet Vintage, Aubeebop Jewellery, The Little White Cow, North East Chandlery, Robyn’s Egg Flower & Event Design, PaperSkeleton Peach Powder Blue, The Gourmet Cheese Company, The Wandering Oven, The Hot Dog Cart, The Fizzy Popsicle Company, OriGINS, Paul Black Music, Manhattan Function Band and DJ Kev Reid.

From hair and make-up, to cakes and ‘scentscaping’ (filling a space with scents to create an experience), the event covered all bases, and gave the affiliated local businesses the opportunity to showcase products and offerings to the attending brides and grooms.

Aside from collaboration, the award-winning Linton & Mac salon used the event to launch its exciting new bridal packages to attendees. From January 2018, the talented team will be offering pre-bridal hair and beauty services, ‘Groomed Groom’ treatments, Hen Party packages, and Wedding Day services for the whole bridal party that can be held in the salon or on location.

Says Jennifer Linton and Joanna MacDonald: "We wanted to collaborate with like-minded local businesses to present something that was fun, inclusive and accessible to all. The ‘Not Your Average Wedding’ event did what it said on the tin and offered attendees something a little bit different from the usual wedding exhibition experience.

There was a fantastic vibe and the feedback that we received from the brides and grooms was brilliant. Not only was the event a great success, but all proceeds from the ticket sales went to local Cancer charity Friends of Anchor.
