Who: The Intercoiffure American & Canadian family.
What: The 2011 Fall Atelier.
Why: The hairstyling community came together again for a star-studded, black tie affair at the Intercoiffure Fall Atelier at the Waldorf-Astoria’s Grand Ballroom in New York City. Nicholas French, 2010 NAHA Avant Garde Winner, opened with a futuristic presentation dedicated to the memory of his late father. Sarah Jessica Parker made an appearance to present the Visionnaire Award to her long-time hairstylist and friend Oribe, following his presentation “The Last Time I Saw Paris.” President Lois Christie presented the first Leo Passage Educator of the Year award to Luis Alvarez.
Ted Gibson, a recent addition to the Intercoiffure family, ended the main stage programming with a presentation that was both artitic and provided a reasoned argument for the Academy to present an Oscar award for hair. Fashion Director Vivienne Mackinder also released the new “Boho Chic” Fall Trend Collection. Gina Khan, Creative Director of the Intercoiffure Haircolor Council, introduced the newest Color Trend collection, entitled “Decades of Hollywood,” a retrospective presentation on the evolution of vintage hairstyles into today’s trends.
When & Where: October 16-17th, New York City.
