THE KEDLESTON COUNTRY HOUSE

In February we were asked to take part in a styled shoot and open evening at The Kedleston Country House which had a fantastic fiesta theme. We love looking for new hair ideas and this styled shoot was the ideal way to explore unique bridal looks. Lorna, our Senior Stylist at The Old Hall was assisted by Zea (Stylist at Duffield) on the shoot.

Robyn Carter, Weddings coordinator, said of the day…

“Here at The Kedleston we like to have a little fun with our open evenings and think it’s always a great opportunity to get fab suppliers involved in creating something different and unique. As much as we love the simplicity of our venue we wanted to show what you can do with a little colour and turmeric! So naturally, we gathered the best of the best together and thought up something totally different to what we’ve seen and done ourselves on other styled shoots.”

THE CLOTHES SHOW 2015: THE IMAGE CATWALK WITH CLOUD NINE

image2-1

We have had teams working backstage at The Clothes Show for several years, it’s a really busy event and it’s great for stylists and apprentices to assist backstage and gain valuable session skills.

The Clothes Show is held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham each year and presents a line up of brands, celebrities and features the ultimate fashion experience including catwalks, trend presentations, shopping, hair and beauty demonstrations and talks from leading industry experts including our very own Angel Montague-Sayers who is the Cloud Nine Hair Ambassador.

Angel presented a quick tutorial once a day on how to get the perfect, salon quality, bouncy blow dry, using the Cloud Nine Wand and The O.

Angel presented a quick tutorial once a day on how to get the perfect, salon quality, bouncy blow dry, using the Cloud Nine Wand and The O.

Angel’s Top Tips:

1. Prep the hair with product before you start styling, her favourite is the TecniArt Constructor. This will give you the hair more texture and a better hold on the final effect.

2. Using heated curlers, curl the top of the head… this will create the effect of a big bouncy blow dry which you get in a salon. Then using a wand, curl the bottom sections of the hair, this will save time and convenience for you.

3. Scrunch every curl whilst it is still hot. This will set it in place and stop it from falling out.

4. When curling the front areas make sure you curl away from the face, it will be more flattering.

Cloud Nine were based on The Image Catwalk which showcases the ‘future of fashion’; graduates and final year students from top Universities and Colleges around the country present their collections on the stage which was hosted by reality TV stars Antonia O’Brien, Jamie Laing and Joey Essex.

The Graduate shows were presented every hour and were 30 minutes long and with just seconds to change into new outfits, the hair was bound to look a bit dishevelled. We sent our fantastic team to assist Angel backstage where they learnt new techniques to bring back to the salon.

The looks were created with only four simple L’Oreal Professionnel products:

  1. Volume Lift Mousse by TecniArt – Top Tip, you can never have too much of this! Spray on to roots section by section and blow dry in until the product is gone. This will give the roots some lift and add volume to create the bouncy blow dry.
  2. Constructor by TecniArt- spray all over the hair to give some texture to work with. When the hair is too smooth the curl will slip out so adding some constructor will help the curl not to drop.
  3. Crepage de Chignon, Wildstylers – this mineral powder fixing spray provides great texture and a volumising effect with a matte finish.
  4. Air Fix, by TecniArt – Spray all over finished hair to keep the style from dropping out.

Not only was Angel and her team backstage styling the hair for the Image Catwalk models but she was on hand to make the presenters stage ready too. Take a look at Angel backstage styling the hair of celebrities such as Jamie Laing, Binky Felsted, Antonia O’Brien, Lauren Pope, Carol Wright and Chloe Lewis.

BACKSTAGE WITH L’OREAL PROFESSIONNEL AT LONDON FASHION WEEK

Two of our Sadler Gate Stylists, Imogen and Ellen, proved their crafting credentials when they were invited to assist L’Oréal Professionnel backstage at the highly anticipated On/Off show at London Fashion Week. The lucky pair assited Adam Reed from Percy and Reed backstage for Yii, Vinti Andrews and Gynel at the Vinyl Factory in London.

 

“We had an incredible time at London Fashion Week, we learnt so much from Adam and we were extremely lucky to have been given this opportunity to work along side such an amazing team and fantastic designers “

GET THE LOOK

YII: THE SEWHAWK

The hair was left untamed to add softness to this ‘triple looped pony’. After washing, apply ‘PLI’ by L’Oréal TecniArt by spraying on towel dried hair liberally before blow-drying. Finish this look using L’Oreal Professionnel ‘Infinium’ hair spray to hold the look into place.

Use ‘Wet look’ gel by L’Oréal on freshly washed hair to give hair a sleek and slender look, experiment with different size braids and finish with TecniArt’s ‘Metallic Gloss’ for an added shine.
