Unite Global Session 2014 was a unique fusion of inspiration, creativity, fashion, latest techniques and of course, education, attracting 1,000 hairstylists members of the Unite Family from around the world.
Unite Global Session, the bi-annual celebration of unique creative artistry, was presented on stage by Unite Founder and CEO, Andrew Dale, and Unite Global Education Director, Marcus Allen. Both introduced a non-stop 2-day event, rich in creativity and education, in a stunning location: the beautiful Balboa Theatre in the heart of the historical Gaslamp district of San Diego.
Shows by a team of senior artist directors from USA, Sweden, UK and Australia brought amazing and high-impact looks to the stage. International Artists include 2xNAHA Avant Garde winner Jake Thompson, celebrity session stylist Kevin Ryan and aussie Adam Noble who has a string of awards to his name including Australian Hairdresser Of The Year. Artists featuring from the UK include British Hairdressing Award winner Paul Stafford, Unite Senior Educator Fletcher, alongside Unite Educators Daniel Jordan, Gary Baker and Natasha Pearson. The event also introduced an inspirational session of GO 24·7 men’s grooming, with amazing US barbers Estevan Garner, Dylan Johnson, Vinnie Morey and Brooke Schoenborn; and avant-garde presentations by the awe-inspiring Swedish duo Fredrik Karlsson & Matthias Lavesson, and Australian creative enfant terrible Shaun McGrath.
One of the most awaited moments was the amazing ‘Live Photo Shoot’ lead by acclaimed Editorial Session Artist Kevin Ryan and photographer Sean Armenta. Ryan, whose work graces the covers of such magazines as Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, I-D, Time and many more, displayed his magic creating five different looks on the same model, while unveiling his best tricks working in a photo session.
Education buzz continues today & tomorrow in San Diego with a series of Unite Look & Learn seminars and the prestigious Paramount Business salon management program.
