Salon International returns to ExCel London from 10-12 October 2020 to support the hairdressing industry after a challenging year

salon international 2020

Salon International is back doing what it does best: celebrating the art, talent and community of hairdressing and reaffirming the business value of the industry.

With British hairdressing widely accepted as the best in the world, Salon International has long been at its heart. And, while the last few months have seen business put on hold, the coronavirus lockdown has also seen hairdressing in the spotlight more than ever, as clients across the country realised just how much they relied on professionals to make them look good and feel fantastic.

Salon International takes place at ExCeL London from 10th – 12th October 2020

Now, as salons prepare to reopen there are new challenges; from running a safe, socially-distanced salon to finding creative solutions for clients and teams.  Such creative solutions are found by joining together.  Salon International returns to help the industry to navigate this new landscape and provide a platform of inspiration for salons and hairdressers to boost their business in a post-lockdown world with education, trends and products to put them ahead of the game.

SALON INTERNATIONAL LONDON 2020 : a Celebration of Colour

Colour has always been the biggest profit driver for salons, and in a post lockdown world it’s more important than ever. Salons will be facing drastic root regrowth and colour corrections galore and reassessing clients who have decided to grow out their greys gracefully during three months at home. With this in mind, Salon International will, this year, feature its first ever bespoke Colour Stage: a dedicated stage with open prep area and a schedule of education and experts talking about all aspects of the colour business. The show will also welcome colour houses from across the world as exhibitors, from big names to indie brands offering something new.

Colour has always been big business for salons and that’s never been more true than now, when clients are desperate to get back to the salon. Going forward, salons will need to think creatively about the colour services they offer, the products they’re using and how they can continue to provide dynamic and exciting results for clients. That’s why we’re putting colour at the heart of Salon International this year, with more education and inspiration than ever. Our guest artists and brands will be providing no shortage of creative solutions and ideas, from the commercial colour business through to inspirational looks, all of which reminds hairdressers why they love what they do!

Jayne Lewis-Orr, Executive Director of Salon International

HOB ACADEMY: Five cutting methods every hairdresser should know!

Cutting hair is the staple of every stylist’s working week!

hob academy

How many cutting techniques do you use?
According to four-times British Hairdresser of the Year, Akin Konizi from HOB Salons, there are five main methods every hairdresser should know
. “Using the right cutting techniques can add movement and dimension to a hairstyle. Once you know the right techniques to use, you can create any shape or texture. It’s about using the right techniques to help you develop your cutting skills.”

The five cutting methods every hairdresser should know.

1 Layering
The most important technique but often the most underestimated. Good layering helps you create the material for all your shapes. You can use it for every shape, texture and hair type.

2 Graduation
Graduation is used to build up weight, with geometric lines either with or without tension and will form the outline of any shape you create.

3 Reverse Graduation
This is the best kept secret in hairdressing! It’s the opposite of each section getting shorter; each section is getting longer. It was used a lot in the 80s to create hard, strong geometry. The modern version is to use it on one-length styles. Use it on one-length styles to combat graduation.

4 Texturising
Texturising isn’t taken seriously enough. It’s about cutting shorter lengths into your longer lengths to create an internal shape in your haircut that will work as a structure to your styles. Sometimes it will give a softening effect, or it can be used to thin out the hair. Texturising offers a whole world of possibilities and potentials by manipulating weight.

5 Precision Cutting
Precision cutting is not just for geometry. It’s how I do all my cuts, it’s about doing your work precisely; if it’s a messy haircut, you still cut it with precision. If you want to create texture or choppiness, you still use precision.

AGF88 Full Experience School

Al via l’esperienza di 18 mesi che permetterà a 10 ragazzi di vivere appieno l’azienda e sperimentare il proprio talento

18 mesi di formazione intensiva fatta di aula e studio a fasi di internship e lavoro sul campo, il tutto finalizzato all’assunzione in azienda.

Un progetto partito il 17 febbraio 2020 e che terminerà nel 2021 permetterà ai giovani di costruire il loro futuro in maniera consapevole: l’obiettivo principale di AGF88 Full Experience School è innanzitutto fornire un bagaglio di conoscenze di General Management, allineate al modello di business e al contesto organizzativo della Holding AGF88, e contestualmente allenare lo sviluppo delle abilità personali e organizzative in una dimensione personale e di gruppo.

Un percorso di sviluppo delle competenze, che pone quindi l’accento sulle opportunità di una conoscenza sempre maggiore delle proprie skills.
Suddivisi in gruppi, gli studenti sperimenteranno tutti i settori della Holding per poter essere inseriti a fianco ai Manager di oggi, consapevoli di ogni ambito aziendale e delle competenze di ciascuna figura perché è attraverso la conoscenza e il dialogo che si costruiscono le fondamenta di una buona leadership.
