Session to Stylist

She’s a regular backstage at New York, London, Milan and Paris, and now Yesmin O’Brien is here to share her invaluable insider secrets with you.

Bringing you the latest looks direct from fashion week; this backstage edit takes those new trends and shows you how to make them salon-friendly to keep clients coming back for more. The workshop also covers all-important backstage etiquette and what it takes to impress the biggest names in session styling.

In this in-depth trend session masterclass you’ll find out how to create:

  • The perfect ponytail. An editorial favourite and far trickier to nail that you might think; you’ll cover a collection of high, medium, low and folded styles, then learn how to turn them into commercial looks that can be used in the salon.
  • A knotted and braided hair-up look. Braids are a client favourite and this fast and effective technique will help you recreate catwalk-inspired looks in a flash.
  • Faux bobs. For clients that can’t commit, this trend-led technique offers a fun and chic alternative to going for the chop.
  • Hair pieces. Used regularly backstage to create elegant shapes and exaggerated up-dos, hair extensions and padding can be made commercial for occasion looks inspired by catwalk styles.
