One big Monday on the Fellowship’s action packed calendar took shape with Project X coming together for their first photo shoot, the Colour Project heading to Wella World Studio to spend the day with the current British Colour Technician of the Year Robert Eaton, and an evening with a Cutting Skills Workshop to finish off the day stylishly.
The Project X team kicked their week off with a bang. Meeting at Direct Studios in London, they embarked on their first team shoot art directed by industry specialist’s Sharon Peake and Adam Bryant from Ethos Hairdressing. Their multi-talented mentor Kai Wan photographed the results and Katie Moore demonstrated her make-up skills. Following on from training sessions earlier in the year with Tracey Devine Smith, Richard Phillipart and the Sassoon Academy, the team were ready and raring to bring all that they have learnt so far to life.
The Project X Team worked together amazingly, said Sharon and Adam, Everyone gained something and left a more well rounded hairdresser. That’s what The Fellowship is all about!
Across town at the Wella World Studios, the Colour Project Team was busy learning from one of the industry’s best colourists. Robert Eaton chatted to the team about his previous award wins, including his recent British Hairdressing Awards Schwarzkopf Professional Colour Technician of the Year award and started preparing the team for their Salon International show in October. When it came to the practical work, Robert challenged the team to think about subtle, wearable changes they can offer their clients in the salon to keep their colour work inspiring.
What a day we had yesterday with Rob, said team member Clare Pearson from Ash Hairdressing. He was amazing. Just when you think this year’s Colour Project can’t get any better – it blows your mind!
The Fellowship hat trick of events was a Cutting Skills Workshop that welcomed 12 members to the Alan d Academy to brush up on their cutting skills. Experts Seung Ki-Baek from Rush, Pete Burkill from HOB Academy, Desmond Murray from Atherton Cox and Kevin Day from Alan d Academy were an extraordinary cutting skills force.
Attendees gained one-to-one guidance from the experts in a truly immersive atmosphere. The looks taught ranged from commercial looks to eclectic looks that can be adapted to the salon, there was something for everyone and the group left with a great sense of achievement, having learnt something new.
The Cutting Skills Workshop was a huge success! says Kevin Day, There was a real workman like atmosphere and you could tell that everyone involved was gaining something by their attention to detail when working. A fantastic event to be a part of!
