The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s PROJECT Colour kickstarted their year with an amazing day; this time with session stylist and salon owner, Adam Reed.
The day was organised by project leader Paul Dennison. The team headed over to Adam Reed London salon in East London for a day of inspirational colouring with wigs. Adam told the PROJECT Colour Team: “I want to create hair that makes people stop for a second to look closer. Maybe it’s a weird texture or the shiniest hair they’ve ever seen. It could be astonishingly intricate as well as a little bit eccentric. Perhaps it’s an arse-kicking technical cut. But irrespective, it held their attention. That’s what great hair should do.”
“Having Adam mentoring the first day for the new team was great,” said Paul Dennison. “He brought a great energy and also made the day relaxed and fun. It started with a group discussion, which also gave the team a great insight into how he likes to work. The team then had an opportunity to get creative working with wigs.”
“The day was awesome,” said member, Luke Logan. “I think the main thing I took away from the day was just to be your true self and not to follow the trends within the industry, but create them.” Sophie Perfect continued: “We spent the day colouring wigs and really focused on placement. We went in with the less is more approach. It’s amazing the results you can get with some tweaking.”
Kayleigh Byrne added: “I enjoyed learning about how he became such an amazing hairdresser. He gave us lots of advice as well as pushing our creativity to the next level by having us think back to basics and create beautiful colours using the phrase “less is more”.
