The Fellowship presents Hair & Vision – ‘The Nature of Colour’ Sponsored by Aveda

The Fellowship presents Hair & Vision continued its venture up north for another fantastic event, The Nature of Colour, sponsored by Aveda. 

Held at the prestigious Westrow Academy, it was an evening of pure inspiration where there were a variety of live demonstrations from some of the Aveda networks most influential salons and artists.

The evening started with a warm welcome from Robert Eaton, President of the Fellowship for British Hairdressing, setting the stage for an inspiring night ahead. Hayley Hughes, Aveda Education Manager, then took the stage to introduce Aveda and give the audience some insight into the brand. Aveda’s commitment to sustainability and natural ingredients were amongst some of the highlights of this introduction. 

This was followed by Joe Hill, Aveda International Technical Capability Manager, gracing the stage to present the creative artists throughout the night. He gave the artists a creative challenge by briefing them to imagine a world without colour, setting the tone for a night of ‘The Nature of Colour’.

First up was Sam Bell and Krysia West, both members of Aveda UK & Ireland Art Team, who brought to the stage their monochrome creative looks. The two looks were full of creativity and innovation, which gave the audience a chance to learn editorial styling hacks from the Aveda UK & Ireland Artistic team. 

Next to the stage was Lisa Jane, Butchers Salon Leicester Salon Owner & Creative Director, and Paul McVeigh, Manager of Butchers salon in East London. The audience was wowed by their style and colour trends insight from the creative pair from Butchers Salons. 

Following this, UK Aveda Technical Education Team members Janine Marino & Rachel Todisco presented their blondes, giving the audience insight in how to master every blonde situation. Their insightful presentation and discussion offered a glimpse into how to achieve the perfect blonde shade on clients, enriching the audience’s knowledge on blondes.

Last but not least for the demonstrations, Aveda UK Texture Expert and Technical Educator, Leah Hill, took us through the art of texture where she demonstrated a signature look on coily hair. This highlighted to everyone the endless possibilities and creativity within the world of textured hair, inspiring the audience to explore styling and haircare for textured hair.

As the evening drew to a close Rob welcomed salon owners Katie Knox from Butchers Salon and Pam Morrisey from Sobe Brown Ireland. This time to have real conversations about salon life – the highs, lows and everything between. There was something in this candid conversation that everyone in the audience could relate to.

Bringing the evening to a close, Robert Eaton welcomed the artists and their models back to the stage and thanked everyone for their attendance and the artists for their incredibly insightful presentations.
