Hello world!

Hi HELLO! readers!

My name is Marc and I’m the Art Team Director for Charles Worthington Salons. I split my time between in salon client appointments at two of our London salons, managing our artistic team, teaching technical hair skills around the world as well as developing ideas, future projects, shoots and hair shows with Charles himself. I have such a fantastic varied week and love my role as each day is so different.

This is especially my favourite time of year as we are the official hair stylist for the EE British Academy Film Awards for the 6th year running. This week I’ve been reviewing all the looks from the Golden Globes and I’ve put together my top 4 trends from the awards. It will be really interesting to see if the pattern continues as we approach the BAFTA’s and the end of the red carpet season.

This week in the salon we have been warming up for the BAFTA’s with our BAFTA bootcamp schedule which we run every year. It’s so vital that we continue to improve our techniques as hair trends and styles are forever changing. The bootcamp involves the salon artistic team training every week and putting our hairdressing skills to the test. Practicing key red carpet hair trends and continuing to be innovative with the way we mould hair and apply styling products.

The theme I’ve set for my Art Team this year is ‘hair through the decades’. I think it’s so important to go back to basics to really understand where trends came from. This week we have travelled back to the era of the 1920′s and after doing some research we decided that the hair was all about defined finger waves and bobs.

Each week we take over an area of our Percy Street salon to set up a mini studio and shoot our work – I asked each art team member to present a model with their own version of the trend we are working on but combine it with a modern 2014 twist. This week was such a fun and rewarding session, I feel that learning the importance of strong setting is such a great foundation for any stylist to have. Our models loved the looks and were literally dancing to the ‘Charleston’ as they were leaving the salon.

This week, I also presented a live hair demonstration at our annual company conference at St Martins Lane Hotel. It was a great platform to demonstrate our new Charles Worthington Salon at Home BAFTA edition Volume & Bounce thick & full 3D boosting crème on the models hair, and also tell our entire styling team what a brilliant product it will be to use backstage at the BAFTA’s in the salon on our clients. I created two Red Carpet looks on stage; I demonstrated how to create an effortless up do and then I showed the team how to create the sleek red carpet glamour wave. These two looks were taken from our in salon BAFTA style menu which will be running from the 10th February until the end of March from only £31.

I was lucky enough to borrow two amazing red carpet gowns from ‘Georgia Nash’. Georgia is a client of mine in the salon and always helps me put together spectacular red carpet looks – her style is so glamorous. Every one of her dresses is unique with incredible embellishment and the cuts drape the models frames so well.
