The L’Oreal Academy in Hammersmith, London hosted The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s evening with Charles Worthington along with key members of his team.
Charles and his team presented their 25th anniversary collection - an array of beautiful cuts, which according to Art Team Director Marc Trinder, were mainly inspired by a post-modernism exhibition at the V&A. Charles Worthington’s Colour Director, Carolyn Newman, gave her views on colour for the coming seasons which she said will be more freehand and bespoke focused. Carolyn also spoke about how she takes her inspiration for her work by looking at the way artists blend and apply colour.
Marc Trinder and his art team demonstrated live cutting techniques, and created a range of dramatic styles featuring blunt fringes and steeply angled layers. Marc explained that extensions have become increasingly popular in the salon, not just for length and volume, but for girls who want an unusual temporary look.
Besides from the live styling, there was also an interview with Charles Worthington. He spoke about his long and successful career, and named his biggest influences as Vidal Sassoon, Anthony Mascolo and Robert Lobetta, and spoke of the importance of training even in these difficult economic times.
The end of the evening saw Charles and Marc going head to head clipping platinum wigs into fun and funky shapes, before the models of the evening returned to the stage for a final look at the Charles Worthington team’s work.
