It’s that time of the month when the team get together to make trend predictions, discuss new techniques, and to talk about our inspirations. This month we are opening up about the other hairdressers who inspire us to stay at the top of our game, to find out who is channeling who – read on!
Kimmy – Shelley Gregory
It’s pretty obvious to see why Kimmy hearts San Diego trained Shelley Gregory, who single-handedly kicked off the #unicornhair trend. A massive icon on Instagram, Shelley is experimental in colour – exploring tones that blend beautifully, as well as those which clash almost harmoniously.
Amy – Jen Atkin
Amy feels a strong connection with Jen Atkin, who started her career as a Saturday girl on a reception desk. Her job progressed from answering the phones to styling the hair of some of Hollywood’s most famous faces (including Jennifer Lopez, Gwen Stefani, Emma Stone, Sofia Vergara, Jessica Alba, Kim Kardashian, Cindy Crawford, Katy Perry, and Christina Hendricks). Jen is a real example of building it from the ground up, and a famed ‘fashion’ stylist who has done many a fashion week circuit.
Tash – Efi Davies
Efi Davies is known worldwide for her Avant Garde style, which is typically epitomised by braiding/plait work. She is an artistic director for TONY&GUY and is considered one of the industry’s true innovators.
Leah – Patrick Cameron
Patrick Cameron is known for the school of ‘hair up’, a movement which serves to provide an education in long hair and how to style it for every occasion. While many stylists struggle with excess length, Patrick turns uber long tresses into works of art and inspires many along the way.
Conna-Rae – Guy Tang
When it comes to colour, there is only one name that screams bright and that has to be Guy Tang. Famed for a colour technique that takes normal hair to totally new heights. We aren’t just talking about neon, but all out glow in the dark – a technique that has not yet been rivaled by any of his contemporaries.
Dean V – Vidal Sassoon
Dean’s idol is no less than Vidal Sassoon. He explained how the great man had inspired him to get into hairdressing in the first place, and for that we are all truly thankful.
