Byron Hairdressing owner Ronnie Marshall is to become one of the first mentors of Scotland’s first ever L’Oréal Young Artistic Team, being formed later this summer. Ronnie, who is already a regular educator for L’Oréal, was approached by the haircare giant in late spring to help motivate and guide what is expected to become the leading group of hairdressers of the next generation. And the inaugural team will include Byron’s youngest stylist, Ryan Steedman.
‘Ryan and I were delighted to be approached by L’Oréal. Forming a L’Oréal Young Artistic Team in Scotland will be an amazing opportunity to champion the huge creative talent that exists within our young people,’ said Ronnie. ‘Team development and skills training are already a priority for us at Byron, as that’s the only way to create and sustain excellence in such a creative industry, but an opportunity to bring together some of the most promising talent across the country so they can train together and bounce ideas off one another is one not to be missed.
‘I’m really pleased to be part of it, and I know Ryan will make an excellent member of the team as he is talented, enthusiastic, focused and a great team player.’
Ronnie’s first contribution will be to lead a session on cutting and styling.
L’Oréal’s aim is to bring together young hairdressers from the best salons across Scotland to train together and to perform for other salons. Stage, seminar and session work is valued highly among proactive hairdressers as it gives them a chance to hone their skills and display their talents in an arena beyond the salon.
‘Many clients are unaware of the fervent activity that goes on when the salon is closed to ensure hairdressers remain at the top of their game,’ said Ronnie. ‘We are craftsmen and, like other creative people, we like to display our creations. For young hairdressers to get an opportunity to do this will be hugely motivating and help mould them into the best hairdressers they can be,’ added Ronnie.
