Award winning Brighouse hairdresser Gary Taylor hosted two showcase demonstrations at the Salon International event.
Held at the London Excel, the venue was transformed into a mecca for the world and students all over the country seeking creative inspiration from the biggest names and brands in hair.
Owner of Edward and Co on Bradford Road, Gary said, “It’s a huge privilege to work with two major brands. Salon International is the biggest hair show in the world.
“I used to come here every year growing up, so to be backstage now and providing the hairdressing education – that’s an amazing achievement.”
The North Western Hairdresser of the Year was invited by two multi-national brands to present on stage; by Schwarzkopf Professional to showcase inspirational trend lead styling, and for Clynol, to bring the manufacturer’s latest colour launch to life.
Appearing on the main stage by special invitation of Hairdressers Journal Magazine, Gary’s 25-minute show was a masterclass in autumnal trend predictions and was assisted by a team from Edward & Co salon.
The second show of the day was for Clynol, a brand for whom Gary has been an ambassador for the last nine years.
This presentation was full of expert product knowledge and more creative and avant garde styling, all with the goal of inspiring the many young hairdressing apprentices and students who gathered around the Fellowship for British Hairdressing stage – itself an organisation with the mission of providing the highest quality hair training for the industry’s up and coming stars.
