ID ARTIST

Earlier this summer Lorna, senior stylist at the Old Hall, successfully auditioned to become a L’Oreal ID Artist. Led by some of the hairdressing industry’s biggest names, ID ARTISTS are coached in the latest catwalk looks, cut and styling techniques, session hairdressing, product innovation and the latest L’Oréal Professionnel seasonal trends. The two-year mentoring programme covers both colour and cutting and styling and has become one of the most sought-after educational opportunities for young hairdressers, inspiring those with an eye for fashion and unique creative expression

LORNA’S DIARY

As I attended the introduction to ID Artist in Leeds I was feeling super excited about the two year journey that I am about to start with L’Oréal. The first day’s session involved learning the importance of social media in the hair styling industry, getting colour trend savvy for AW/17 and a preview of L’Oréal’s new metallic colour range. In addition to this I got to see a demo of two different hair cuts from Saks art team members.
The session ended with Andrew Barton giving us all an insight into the world of being a celebrity hairdresser. Listening to Andrew’s career was very inspiring and left me feeling more motivated than ever to improve and develop my skills as a hair stylist. At the end of the day all of the member’s of the ID artist team’s were invited to a night of bowling, food and drinks. This was a really nice opportunity to meet more of the great people who I will be working and training alongside in the coming years.
During the second day at ID Artist I learned the importance of presenting yourself properly on stage and how to engage with an audience and keep them interested. There was a hands-on styling session with Luke Pluckrose (a session stylist with Saks) and a cutting session with Sarah Clarke-Lees (a member of the Saks art team). These sessions were great as I learned new sectioning techniques and how to use them to create a choppy, layered haircut. We then finished the day with a team building exercise which involved all of the groups acting out a Disney film of their choice.
My first two day’s at ID Artist were amazing and I cannot wait for the next event!

To book an appointment with Lorna please call 01332 331133 or book online.

We’ve been celebrating after being named one of just five finalists in the Best Local Salon category of national hairdressing competition – the Most Wanted Awards.

Thanks to an impressive display of skill, dedication and talent, Sally Montague Hair Group beat off stiff nationwide competition to secure a place at the Most Wanted Grand Final on Monday 4th September 2017, taking place at the historic London Guildhall and hosted by comedian Katherine Ryan.

The salon submitted an entry based on their commitment to their clients and the community, showcasing collaboration with other businesses and the continual training and progression of their team. Judged by influential names in hair, fashion, business and the media – including Vogue beauty editor Lauren Murdoch-Smith, and the founders of BeautyMART, Millie Kendall MBE and Anna-Marie Solowij – the Most Wanted Awards celebrate the outstanding individuals, teams and salons that make British hairdressing the best in the world.

Presented by leading industry magazine Creative HEAD, the Most Wanted Awards comprise 14 categories, each recognising excellence across a multitude of disciplines, from business acumen and customer service to creative skill and technical ability.

“I’ve been so impressed with this year’s entries,” commented Catherine Handcock, Publisher of Creative HEAD.  “We have an exceptionally strong line-up of finalists who, together, demonstrate a wealth of skills, innovation and forward-thinking that is very exciting to see.

THE CLOUD NINE PONY UPDATE…

By Angel Montague-Sayers

Here I created this ‘lived in’ low pony using my favourite curling wand by Cloud Nine and a cocktail of my hero products.

The ‘Curling wand’ is the newest edition to the Cloud Nine portfolio and alongside it’s multiple heat settings and glossed coating (giving serious shine) the width of the barrel gives a flawless shaped curl for any hair length.

Follow this simple step by step to recreate this look;

  1. Starting with freshly washed hair, spritz a generous helping of the Cloud Nine Amplify spray throughout and blast dry in.
  2. Once your hair is 100% dry; take small sections and spray the L’Oreal Professional, Techni-Art Constructor spray from root to tip. This will not only protect against the heat but will feel invisible on the hair and has a styling memory for longer lasting results.
  3. Wrap each section around the barrel of the Cloud Nine curling wand. Don’t worry if you can’t wind the very ends around as this adds to the natural effect.
  4. Leave each curl to cool without touching it and continue with the rest of the hair.
  5. Once the curls have cooled; tip your head upside down and shake out the shape.
  6. The Crepage De Chignon by L’Oreal Professional is an ideal blend of hairspray and dry shampoo for a texturing and mattifying result. Spritz this throughout and finish by defining the ends using the Techni-Art deviation paste.
  7. It’s important not to use a hairbrush at this point as it will ruin the texture you’ve created. Gather your hair gently with your fingers at the nape of the neck.
  8. Fasten this with a piece of elastic and tie a black ribbon around to add detail.

Angel works at Duffield each Thursday and Friday and at Ashbourne every Wednesday and Saturday.
