Trevor Sorbie made his return to the Salon International stage on October 15, 2017 at ExCeL London. Greeted by a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd, Sorbie was joined on stage by artistic director Tom Connell for an inspirational show. Connell created a cut inspired by the flowing lines of a woman’s scarf, while Sorbie created a cut with head-hugging lines, and explained the importance of being creative for a successful hairstyling career.
Trevor Sorbie International’s art team member and British Hairdressing Awards finalist Mai Ha from Manchester, U.K. took the stage to showcase her signature avant-garde styles, using tracing paper to create a triangular look inspired by couture dresses from Dutch fashion designer Iris Van Herpen.
International technical director Nathan Walker and art team colourist Zak Twohig showcased the latest colour techniques, including colour placement using the shape of a Venn diagram for painting cyan, magenta and yellow tones. Educators John Spanton and Tiziana di Marcelli demonstrated colour techniques inspired by the detailing of fabric and stitching, and the work of artist Jackson Pollock.
Closing the show was Trevor Sorbie International’s art team member Johanna Cree Brown, who incorporated fibre optic lighting with hair wefts for a glowing effect.
