The Wella Master Colour Expert, the hair colourist, and the Wella Master Colour Congress.
I was the guest speaker at the annual Wella Master Colour Congress in Manchester and again in London the following day. The summer before that I trained the Wella Master Colour senior trainers in the latest colour analysis techniques and we worked on how to adapt them for use in hair salons and by hair colourists everywhere.
These senior trainers train the trainers who then train the Wella Master Colour Expert and the hair colourists from the top 20% of hair salons – if you follow my ‘train’ of thought – sorry, sometimes I just can’t help myself! Very exciting stuff, and it was absolutely wonderful at the annual Congress to see how Wella have used some of the ideas we worked on together to come up with some fantastic new tools for the Wella Master Colour Expert to use in the salon with their clients.
I went early to watch some of their guest hair stylists and colourists demonstrate the new colours and style trends.
You wouldn’t believe what some of these creative people can do with nothing more than a pair of scissors! And some of the hair colour demos were just stunning. I never realised that you could use the end of a styling comb to create such amazing nuances of colour in your hair!
I learnt so much, and not just about hair either.
I’ve got loads to write up as I think it’s going to be so useful to image consultants around the world. And I’m now working on some amazing ideas for image consultants and hair stylists / colourists to work together – after all, we both have the same mutual client, don’t we?
Working with the Wella Master Colour senior trainers helped me so much when creating the content for the Fabulous Hair Colour Analysis Course.
