The Schwarzkopf Professional Colour Decoded tour reached its final stop last night and wowed the crowds at East Wintergarden in London’s Canary Wharf.
Hosted by Head of Education and Events, Stephen McDowell, the afternoon kicked off with Schwarzkopf Professional International Colour Ambassador, Lesley Jennison, decoding the colour concept live on stage, demonstrating her latest innovative techniques, and giving the audience an insight into the work of a maestro.
Talking through this year’s colour launches from the brand, Lesley demonstrated the pretty pastels of Pearlescence – shown beautifully with her ‘cloud’ technique for a soft, candyfloss finish, before moving on to the beautiful brunettes of High Power Browns and the Kiss technique for the softest of Ombres. A general look at the whole of the Schwarzkopf Professional Igora Royal portfolio finished Lesley’s show, with the audience audible in their awe at the beautiful finish of the ‘half and half’ look.
No colour would be complete without the styling, so Essential Looks Ambassador, Andy Smith, took to the stage to explain his cut and finish for each model, demonstrating how best to show off the beautiful colour techniques.
Following a break of bubbles and canapés, the 350-strong audience returned to see the Essential Looks SS15 Modern Style collection brought to life. Essential Looks ambassadors Dylan Brittain, Charlie Taylor and Suzie McGill presented their interpretations of the three trends: Pearlescent Girls, Hippi Glam and Rok Chik to the awe-inspired crowd.
With the tour visiting Edinburgh, Manchester and Bristol previously, the grand finale in London provided an exciting night of innovation, inspiration and high-octane education. Stephen McDowell said,
We’ve loved every minute of this amazing tour. We have such a strong team of talent at Schwarzkopf Professional, and to be able to take this round the country and show off our inspirational techniques and innovation has been incredible!
