It’s been a terrific week on Tuesday I found out that I have been named a finalist for the Craetive Head award 2014. The Most Wanted awards recognise and reward the finest,most respected creative,business and team talents working in British Hairdressingand the competition is widely acknowledged as one of the most important and influential in the industry, so i’m really honoured to have made it to the finals and all my images where balayage . It was rather thrilling to put the entry together and see all I have done in the last year in one book , Septemebr 1st is the party so i’m on a diet and wishing everyone good luck
Yet again it’s been an amazing week, the thrill was the coverage in Harpers Bazar which did an excellant article on what they call the new blonde, for those of you that follow me you will know i’ve been an advocate of this look for some time now and the write up was brilliant
Where does the time go? As I sit here at my desk reflecting on all the good things that have happened with the Balayage revolution. I can’t help but smile, It has been embraced by so many salons and colourists and more and more salons are putting it on their menus. There does tend to be a slight confusion within the Industry and at a press event for Neville at the Bulgari hotel I tried to clear that up explaining Balayage is a highlighting technique Ombre is a colouring technique, Balayage highlights can go very close to the root they do not have to stop midway up the hairshaft. The other thing being we live in a visual world and the client is also leading the revolution bringing in photos of celebs with Balayage and Ombre it has to be a key service.
