Hairdressers up and down the east coast of Scotland are ready to throw off the woollies and embrace spring and summer following small group sessions with one of the country’s leading stylists, Byron Hairdressing’s Ronnie Marshall.
Over the past few weeks, Ronnie has been training stylists from other salons on how to interpret the spring/summer trends created by haircare giant L’Oréal. In groups of six, the stylists have been educated in the latest cutting techniques by Ronnie and given guidance on the fresh, new colours by L’Oréal’s technical educator in Scotland, Vicky Millar.
The most recent event was in Edinburgh on 19 April. After an in-depth presentation, the six stylists, all from top local salons, were shown moodboards ‘“ a collection of pictures torn from glossy magazines ‘“ of what emerged on last year’s fashion week catwalks. Ronnie then restyled two models and Vicky demonstrated colouring techniques before releasing the stylists on models of their own.
‘Hair is now very fashion-influenced, with clients keen to embrace new looks that are on trend, so good stylists must monitor what’s happening on the catwalks and in the magazines,’ explained Ronnie, whose award-winning salon is in Kirkcaldy, Fife. ‘L’Oréal takes a lead in creating its own version so it can help hairdressers stay abreast of fashions. These events are crucial to the professional development of all hairdressers as they get opportunities to put what they are taught into practice on the actual day.’
Ronnie has been a leading educator for L’Oréal in Scotland for several years.
