At the end of last year I got together with some of the Cloud Nine team to brain storm ideas for education we could offer in 2014.
We decided to devise an education programme called ‘Salon Styling sessions’ which are delivered around the country to Cloud Nine salons. I wanted these seminars to focus on current trends because for Hairstylist’s they are the main reference point within our work.
Hairdresser’s Journal which is one of the leading industry Magazine’s had this to say recently:
Cloud Nine Salon Sessions are a new education initiative designed to help salons bring the latest catwalk hair trends to their clients in an accessible way.
Created by Cloud Nine to keep stylists at the forefront of their industry, the Salon Sessions will cover trends, styling tips and techniques, inspiration and key product information and can be tailored to individual need – lasting a full or half day and available to individual salons or groups.
Content will be updated throughout the year to ensure they cover the very latest in hair trends and each stylist will walk away with step-by-step guides to all of the looks that they’ve created to enable them to recreate what they’ve learnt on the salon floor.
The three educators heading up Cloud Nine Salon Sessions are UK creative director, Angel Montague Sayers; session stylist and artistic director for Malcolm Murphy hair, Shelley Manley; and director of hair and owner at Modello Hair Salon& Spa, Stacey McCormack.
Speaking about the new initiatives, Angel Montague-Sayers said:
“Hair trends reflect not only what is happening in the beauty industry but in art, fashion and culture as a whole which, as a hairdresser and session stylist, is where I draw inspiration from. For me trends are both important and inspirational because each season our industry has a fresh aesthetic to produce.
“2014 takes Cloud Nine to the next level implementing the best of great British hairdressing by bringing you and your team catwalk-inspired trends from Fashion Weeks around the world and equipping you with the knowledge and tools needed to translate these looks for clients on the salon floor.”
