Celebrity, salon and session stylist Jason Hall has joined the R+Co Global Artist Team, making him the first UK hairdresser to become part of the growing R+Co worldwide family.
Edinburgh-based Jason spends three months of the year travelling on the fashion week capitals’ circuit and has also spent time with his mentors, Garren, Howard McLaren and Thom Priano during New York Fashion Week in September, for Anna Sui SS17, in addition to meeting his global team at the New York studio in early August.
Howard McLaren, co-founder and creative director of R+Co, said: “Jason’s love of hairdressing is very contagious and this was the first thing that struck me about him. He shares his talents with like-minded people and his body of work speaks for itself whether it be working in his salon, on photoshoots or backstage in New York, London, Milan, and Paris. Jason is a great addition to our team and a great resource of information. He has worked with some of the best, and recently spent time with the Collective in New York for our Global Artistic Team training where he was an excellent student with great precision. I look forward to collaborating with him on our collections and education. Also, it’s great to have another Scottish guy on the team.”
Jason commented: “Focusing on the culture of hairdressing, our aim is to expand our collaborative knowledge to encourage salon stylists to be the best they can be and experience all that they want to.” He will now spearhead the R+Co UNIVERSITY courses in the UK and Ireland launching in early 2017, which have a focus on the core of hairdressing, taking inspiration from the three legendary hairdressers’ notable accomplishments the brand was founded upon.
