Hairfest 2016

48 hours of Hairfest 

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to share the stage at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga with some of the biggest names in the Hair industry!

Here is a bit of a run-down of the fun-packed 48 hours!

8:00 am begin model prep bright and early

The artistic team completed around 30 consultations to see what style would be best for each model.

Hundreds of foils where placed in the models hair to remove there colour.

Rehearsal in Hammersmith Hall.

5:30 

Show begins and Paul Mitchell team takes the stage a few minutes in the lights begin  flicker and the theatre power cuts out.

The show must go on so everyone pulled out there phones and we continued to cut and colour as best we could.

A few moments later the fire alarm sounds and we are being told to evacuate the building!

Eventually we were allowed back in the building to finish the show and it truly will be one to remember.
