For most of last year, when travelling and teaching one thing came up over and over gain, and that was managing the clients expectation, it didn’t matter the class or the level it was as if this was the biggest thing in the room. Last year I did write about the consultation you can read that here, but I do think this is something worth touching on so we can split clients into a few different groups, but before we do that, its important that we as an industry stand tall and proud, we are the ones who have the knowledge, been on the courses, up skilling all the time and we shouldn’t be afraid of a colour change or the word NO, if we feel its applicable.
Red is the current IT girl micro colour trend or so it seems, we can’t open a magazine without reading about it and even the Daily Mail did an article on it earlier in the year (more about that later).
My lovely client Clara Paget has gone back red, who is filming the hit USA show Black Sails which you can now see on Amazon here in the UK. Ronze ‘a red bronze’ is trending in the USA a getting a slight look in here in the UK
Whilst looking back through my work I realised that I had started using the term Bronde back in July 2012 thats three years ago! and it seems like this look is staying strong and current .
January has seen me take my Balayage revolution class on the road, already i’ve been in Cork and Newcastle. The response has been huge and heartwarming. People and the industry are more aware of the technique now, looking back at the last few years and it has really taken off here in the UK. There is still some confusion about what Balayage is, and in it’s classic form it’s a highlighting technique, but slowly we are over coming that. I believe its the fear of going close to the scalp that frightens hairdressers the most, colour bleeding on the scalp has never been a pretty look, and this is certainly part of the focus in my classes.
Monday 22nd October saw me do a presentation for The British Fellowship of Hairdressing on social media how it works and has worked for me. Below is the link to the images I used from my own stuf and the Salons.
