Recently I was invited to hear Josh Wood talk at a Redken event, a rare opportunity to listen to an industry icon talk. The subject got onto trends and what Josh thought; it was so interesting because he also feels that because the technology of colour, either from a box or a tube, is so good and getting even better, the only thing that’s going to distinguish us from our competitors is the application. Given that most hairdressers say they do balayage and to some interpretation they do, what sets one apart from the other? APPLICATION. It’s the same for most commercial looks now because the colour choice is what fans the instagram story, but it’s the application that makes it look amazing.
Who Said Commercial Colour Was Boring?! follow me over two articles where I discuss why its not.
I recently read this line in an article: ‘When will you decide to take action on all that education you’re consuming? Because the truth is, until you do, please do not expect any changes to occur.”
Not so long ago a salon colour menu was very simple and was typically boring and in many ways uninspiring
I can’t believe that we are already in Febuary and i’ve not even done a post this year yet. Catching up with all the great press i’ve had recently I thought a blog update would be a good way to get started. But first the really exciting news NEXT Model Management has partnered with and me to provide specialist hair treatments to its models and talent. “We are so excited to work with Jack Howard and the team at Neville’s – his coloring experience is exactly what we are looking for to keep the models hair in top condition” says Amanda Bretherton, President of Next London. Next represents top models such as Abbey Lee, Anja Rubik, Andrés Velencoso, Arizona Muse, Malgosia Bela, David Agbodji, Jon Kortajarena, Meghan Collison, Suvi Koponen and Zuzanna Bijoch as well as special talent including Alexa Chung, Lana Del Rey, Paloma Faith, Ellie Goulding, Rita Ora and Pharrell among others. I have had so much fun and seen a few of the models on the runway of NYFW already
Most of my Brunette clients like being brown, they hate orange and red tones and just want to look natural. Never have I heard a client say can you put some orange highlights in my hair Jack!. Yet all around me I can see that orange brown glow of badly coloured hair, in all fairness its hard to keep the brassy tones away in the sunshine and colour does oxidize but even so its our job as colourists to work hard at keeping the brass away.
July 1st 2013 was the British Fellowship of Hairdressers members night, where members can showcase their work in a 4 minuite segment. Well being a colourist I teamed up with the very talented KY Wilson to style for me, as we all know without a great blow dry colour doesn’t look good.
