A bit more than two weeks ago I attended the “Salon International” in London that is held every year and shows the latest within the hair industry. It was a great inspiring experience and I was very happy this year it was focused on hair ups, since that is what we mostly do when we do wedding hair styling. I stayed most of the time at the Babyliss Pro stand watching Patrick Cameron, who is really famous for updo’s and his work is really amazing and inspiring.
What about the hair trends? What’s really in at the moment is long and “sexy” hair with the focus on that the hair shouldn’t be too perfect. Isn’t that great? Suits perfect for us people with busy schedules, right? Curls are also in, but again with the focus on the natural hair look, not too perfect. To sum up, what is trendy now is the vintage hair look, braids, waves, lots of texture (sexy hair) and long hair upstyled so it looks like a bob!
My days in London was very intensive but very inspiring. I saw new interesting products that I would like to incorporate, met lots of other hairdressers, bought the bridal book by Patrick Cameron and also a few different tools for hair ups from him. I am really excited to start using all the hair techniques, tools and ideas I got from the Salon International and of course looking forward to the next Salon International.
Until next time,
