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.
