Last night I attended an evening with Wella’s Project 7 team. Project 7 members have been put together to forecast looks that are most likely to be on the the catwalk, shows and salons in the very near future.
The seven consist of Bruno Marc, Anya Dellicompani, Kai Wan, Ian Davies, Martyn Holmes, Leslie Davies and Daniel Posner. These stylist are from all around the UK, and give us the latest tips on hairdressing styles.
Bruno has reached the final of Hairdresser of the Year Award, that takes place later this year, so good luck to Bruno in his efforts, I am sure he will do well.
The main ideas that came from the evening were ones of disconnection, this is where part of the hair is being cut with no regard or reference to the next section. The use of razors and clipper used in unorthodox techniques also assist the stylist to create their work.
You have to have a solid knowledge of all the fundamental haircuts before you can leapfrog your ideas of disconnection and unorthodox ways of creating them. but once you have this knowledge everything becomes easier to understand.
Another idea to come from the evening was the use of toners and mixer shades on pre-lightened hair. Violets, Reds and Petrol Blues in various ways, mixing them with a 10/0 base to create different shading in the haircut, picking out some of the disconnection within the haircut.
Try using an inch of a mixer tone with 10/0, then to experiment use 3 or 4 inches with the 10/0 to see what difference you get from each colour mixed.
