Last Monday October 23rd I was in Manchester doing a balayage masterclass for Toni and Guy at the Loreal Academy. What made it so special for me was the fact that Jo O’Neill and Jane Stacey wanted to come along. Already doing some freehand work within the company they were interested in my proven method of Balayage application and its clear and precise approach. As we all know there are many was to balayage some better than others, but it often lacks precision and for a large company such as Toni and Guy to add it to their colour menu and launch it through all their salon groups consistant solid training and results are needed. The group was a good size and all different age ranges but the passion for colour was clear, along with some very solid foundations in application and execution. Who said Balayage was a trend?, I think after the last few years of me shouting out loud about the balayage revolution its now a must have piece in a colourists repitoire.
Monday 16th October saw the first think tank committee meeting for State registered Hairdressers
The aim of it was to develop ideas around raising the profile of the council, and engage with hairdressers to get them involved in registering.
Summer is drawing to an end, but the Balayage revolution never stops. What a summer it has been.
the September issue of Proffesional Hairdresser is out with a beautiful two page spread featuring my work and thoughts on Balayage, for the salon succesful colourist it makes a great read. The funniest part is the opening line “the good ship Balayage with captain Jack Howard “- love it. The article is below for you to see if you don’t get the magazine.
