THE COLOUR TROPHY

THE L’OREAL COLOUR TROPHY 2018

Three teams from our salons have made it through the first round and into the semi-finals of the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Award 2018. This means that they will now go head to head with salons at the North West Regional Semi-Final event on Monday 16th of April in Liverpool. The teams include stylists from the salons in Belper, The Old Hall (St Peters Churchyard) and Ashbourne who all took part in a photoshoot to create their entry images.

During the first round, hundreds of photographic images from across the country were judged by the most influential names in hairdressing, including Angel Montague-Sayers who is also judging the South West and Northern Irish heats. The salon group fought off stiff competition and were successfully chosen to go through to the next round of the competition – the Regional Semi- Finals.

Stylist: Drew Colourist: Millie

The next stage of the competition will put the team through their paces as they now look to create a truly inspirational, contemporary colour, complemented by trend-driven styling and finish. The team of judges will be looking for work that is exceptionally executed and technically precise.

Stylist: Emily

“We were delighted to have all three of our entries selected by the judges and we now have a team competing in each of the categories at the regional final. We enter the L’Oreal Colour Trophy every year to ensure that the techniques we use in salon are at the forefront of British hairdressing and it’s great fun for all the team involved. We’re looking forward to the next stage and are taking a bus full of our apprentices and younger stylists with us to cheer on the teams taking part.” Sally Montague

Stylist: Lorna

At each Regional Semi-Final six successful teams will be announced and they will go forward to compete at the prestigious L’Oréal Colour Trophy Grand Final in London this June.

LORNA IN BARCELONA

ID ARTISTS IN BARCELONA

Sun, sea and a sensational line-up of guest artists were the order of the day when the L’Oréal Professionnel ID Artists enjoyed a three-day education trip. The L’Oréal Academia, Barcelona was the stunning venue for 63 ID Artists who were all there to prepare for the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Backstage Live Tour, which kicks off this today visiting 10 cities in the UK and Republic of Ireland.

LORNA’S DIARY

On day one I had some free time before the first meet up so I went for a paella lunch with some of the ID Artists before exploring Barcelona. During the welcome meeting there was inspirational talks from the L’Oréal team and the Rush Art team and then a briefing on the colour trophy hair show. We were shown demonstrations on each look that we have to create on the colour trophy tour which I will be taking part in and competing in. After the meeting there was a drinks reception dinner followed by a night out in Barcelona.
On the second day, the morning started with an in depth demonstration of the two main styling looks for the colour trophy tour. This was then followed by the ID artist team practicing the two looks on dolls heads in pairs. In the afternoon we took it in turns to make pom poms out of hair and make wigs, using extensions the colourists had coloured in the morning. That evening we had a tapas dinner and drinks with all of the ID artists and L’Oréal team.

Stuart Chapman, ID Artist project manager, said: “Talented guest artists , our beautiful Barcelona Academia and 63 passionate ID Artists all combined to make this a very memorable trip as we fully prepare the ID Artists for their presentations at the L’Oréal Professionnel Colour Trophy Backstage Live Tour.”

The ID Artist programme from L’Oréal Professionnel has one goal – to find talented individuals who could be the future stars of the hairdressing industry and work with them to further develop their talent and discover their full potential. We encourage out team to audition and our current or former ID Artists include Lizzie (Sadler Gate), Deesh (Duffield), Laura (Belper), Alice and Imogen (Ashbourne) and Lorna (The Old Hall).

FUTURE STARS

COMMONWEALTH GAMES ATHLETES AT THE OLD HALL

Last week we were delighted to welcome the young Derbyshire athletes who have been selected to compete at the Commonwealth Games next month on the Gold Coast.

The athletes, their mums and team members from the Derbyshire Institute of Sport all enjoyed hair and make up appointments in preparation of their celebratory dinner at Seven restaurant on Pride Park.

Our stylists were on hand for blow dries while Leanne (Spa Therapist at Ashbourne) used Airbase make up to give the athletes a flawless make up application.

Airbase is applied using a spray gun and offers a light application with a long lasting and full coverage. It’s ideal for special occasions and so we knew it would be ideal to use for the athletes who were being interviewed on TV that evening.

 

The Derbyshire Institute of Sport was inspired by the London Olympic Games and was launched in 2012 as Derbyshire’s legacy programme. Although Derbyshire had produced champions in the past, their aim is to create a systematic model, leaving less to chance, and giving athletes the best possible chance of achieving their Olympic dream. You can find out more about the Derbyshire Institute of Sport here.

INSTANT HIGHLIGHTS

INSTANT HIGHLIGHTS

Angel and Zea were the first to see Instant Highlights when they took part in the L’Oreal Professionnel UK launch shoot in January and last week our stylists were all trained on the new  techniques at The Old Hall. This entirely new service is designed for the time poor who need a lightening appointment in just 30 minutes. Find out more below…

What are Instant Highlights?

A game-changing in-salon lightening technique that gives you  face framing highlights in half an hour thanks to a specific lightening cream and heated hair iron that cut out the usual development time.

Why Instant Highlights instead of my usual highlights or balayage?

Here’s the deal – it won’t replace your full head of highlights (because the whole point is not to take so much time), but if natural looking balayage is your thing then instant highlights could easily be added to your Cut and Blow-dry.

Why? Because it has the same lightening effect (up to 6 levels on un-dyed virgin hair) as regular highlights, but in an express time limit.

How does it work?

First step, choose your look from the options below with your stylist:

1. InstaContouring – 5-10 face framing pieces.

2. Instalights – 10-15 woven highlights all over your head.

3. Instarevive – up to 15 pieces give a grown out balayage a good old refresh.

4. Instapop – add block sections of pastel colour.

How much does it cost?

Short hair £32

Medium length hair £35

Long hair £38

Our pricing includes Smartbond but any toners or colourful hair will be added to the prices above.

 

 

Please ask your stylist if you have any questions about Instant Highlights which is now available in all salons.

KERASTASE

KERASTASE HOME FRAGRANCE

Nothing beats that feeling of stepping out of the salon with freshly pampered hair that looks and smells divine! And it’s not for nothing- 75% of our emotions generated throughout the day are directly related to smell. Whether it’s the fragrance of a beautiful rose or your favourite hair product, scents play a big part in how we feel and can instantly lift our moods or ease stress. So why not bring that post-salon sensation home?

While stocks last you can enjoy a complimentary Kerastase diffuser when you purchase 2 or more products.

Choosing the right scent

We believe that the way products smell is very important, turning something every day like washing into your hair an indulgent and luxurious ritual. Well now you can bring those sublime fragrances into your home! Envelop your senses with a Kerastase home fragrance diffuser, and let the journey begin.

There is one fragrance for each of the 4 bestselling ranges:

Reflection home fragrance

Fresh lemony notes riff off the powerful wooden base notes, striking a harmonious balance whilst the fresh floral heart will have you drifting into a dreamy haze… an idyllic scent for the romantic at heart.

Nutritive home fragrance

Top notes of fresh citrus give this scent its crisp energy and mood-lifting boost. Just underneath sparkles lavender, giving base notes of white musk space to breathe for an incredible sensation of lightness that envelops any room with a breeze of well-being.

Resistance home fragrance

For those who like to get up and go! Tasty top notes open with fresh effervescence and bite, before the sweetheart notes give way to a captivating and delicately floral musk. An uplifting scent to start the day right.

Elixir Ultime home fragrance

Melt into this elegant fragrance. Delicately sunny top notes come in the form of mandarin, whilst violet petals add a refined touch. Amber tones of sandalwood ground the scent, giving it a warm and woody aura for that feeling of long summer nights, whatever the season.

CHRISTMAS ON CLOUD NINE!

Cloud Nine teamed up with hair industry bible Creative HEAD magazine for a Christmas cover shoot with Angel taking the lead backstage on a collection of eight cool, easy going looks.

“These looks were inspired by the contrasting qualities of hair; keeping textures raw against more polished finishes. They were also heavily influenced by the Cloud Nine ‘Muses’ – girls we believe are strong, spirited, effortlessly cool and carefree, with a penchant for luxury”
– Angel Montague Sayers, Cloud Nine UK creative ambassador

Cloud Nine electrical tools are available in each of our salons and we offer a complimentary styling lesson with all tools purchased.
