Earlier this week, Schwarzkopf Professional’s Young Artistic Team (YAT) spent two days at Rainbow Room International in Glasgow getting familiar with the new SS17 Essential Looks collection: Modern Ikon.
The teams were not only introduced to all the new trends and concepts within the new collection, but were also fully immersed in it with step-by-step detailed talks from Schwarzkopf Professional Ambassador’s and national educators, Suzie McGill and Dylan Brittain from Rainbow Room International. The teams were taken through a few of the most versatile looks within the collection and taught how to recreate them, from the cut and colour to the exact body positioning and posture required during each cut.
Schwarzkopf Professional’s Essential Looks collections are inspired by the most sought-after designers in global fashion and offer direction and style insights for the Schwarzkopf Professional partner salons. Key trends are picked up on and crystallized into three looks that can be adapted to consumer’s styles. The ‘Modern Ikon’ collection is the latest edition of Essential Looks and consists of three trends; Opulent, Beat Icon and Colorama. Inspired by the allure of the ‘50s French Riviera, Opulent showcases sultry glamour and pure sophistication. Beat Icon celebrates the icons from the ‘60s beat generation – with a timeless urban feel. Colorama combines the attitude of punk with Tokyo-inspired neon vibes, bringing us into the here and now with a nod to the futuristic.
What an inspiring two days to spend with the amazing Suzie and Dylan! says YAT team member, Bevan Scott Clark from Hooker & Young. I loved learning about the trends and recreating them, but just getting to work with Suzie and Dylan was by far the main highlight for me! I’d do it all over again tomorrow!
