Hundreds of hairdressers from around the globe flew into Sicily, Italy recently to see global acclaimed hairdresser Paul Stafford close the show following an exceptional cast of world-class hairstylists at the Alfaparf Milano 2016 Conference.
In his first international show since being appointed Global Ambassador at Italy’s premier luxury haircare brand earlier this year, Paul gave the audience a glimpse of his phenomenal cutting abilities and his on-stage repartee. Renowned for pushing boundaries while creating stunning haircuts, Paul revealed his latest looks, a progression beyond his latest collection, ‘Signature’, exploring new shapes using classic, yet simple techniques.
“Over the past 12 months I’ve been focusing on creating hair that is beautiful and wearable, but which is innovative and directional. It’s steeped in musical influences going back through punk to as far as the 60s but with a totally modern, contemporary edge,” explained Paul.
Each year Alfaparf Milano holds a conference in an Italian city to bring together the ever growing family of stylists and salons who love the luxurious color brand. This year it was held in the wonderful scenery of Taormina town, in Sicily, and featured, alongside Paul, fellow Brit Richard Ashforth, Italy’s Genny D’Auria and Piero Platania, and Ruslan Tatyanin, from Russia.
