At The Attic we believe that the best stylist is the one who never stops learning. Whether its a new technique, trend or product, we are always ready and willing to test it out. Being able to provide our clients with the most up to date styles is so important, especially in this trend orientated city.
We are lucky enough to have 3 Goldwell educators call this studio home and they can be often be sent as far a field as Toronto to teach. Being a part of the Kao Canada family means that education is at our fingertips, and so when asked if we would host a class being taught by the amazing Derrick Zeno for 16 stylists from around the Lower Mainland, we jumped at the chance!
After spending the night transforming The Attic into a classroom we opened our doors to some smiling and eager stylists early Sunday morning. Armed with scissors, brushes, bowls and an excessive amount of hair spray the Extreme Colour Camp got underway.
Sometimes its easy for stylists to fall into the routine of using colour straight from a tube. We believe, however, that each client should get a colour as unique as they are and so learning to mix and create different tones is paramount. Whether you learned to colour 2 years ago or 20, sometimes going back to basics can help to refresh and re-inspire a stylist.
Over the course of two days, stylists who attended the class were asked to experiment with mixing colours, new application techniques and try their hand at colour corrections (that are all too common unfortunately!). The integrity of your hair should always be your stylists number one priority, as a client you have the right to question the products used in your hair and understand what services are being performed. Most importantly: don’t ever be afraid to talk to your stylist!
The Attic will host a number of other classes heading up to Christmas so stay tuned for the full list!
