The great thing about being a hairdresser is there is always something new to learn. Whether it’s a technique, trend or trying out new products, it’s easy for stylists to update their skills. And while the basics may remain the same, it’s the little things that make your work modern and relevant for clients today.

HAIR is the ultimate fashion accessory and it has never been so talked about than this year,” says TONI&GUY international artistic director, COS SAKKAS. “Women – and men – have really appreciated what we do, how we can transform their hair and how important we are to them. It may not have been the year to talk trends, but it has been the year to talk about looking after what you’ve got, how to add small details for a change and how beautiful, wearable hair makes you feel great.

2020 has also been the year of learning new things – from baking bread to learning a new language. For hairdressers, it’s been the perfect time to keep on top of skills and learn new ones. TONI&GUY, along with other companies, have been creating digital education and while it will never replace a live classroom experience, it has meant we can ensure that when clients come back to the salon, we are more than ready for them.”

on making education
during a pandemic work for you

Cos Sakkas for TONI&GUY

1 It’s easy to forget about training and concentrate on getting your clients in your chair. But if the pandemic has taught us one thing, it’s that people’s lifestyles have changed. It’s not just about looking good, they want to feel great too. So think about your consultation process and how that can be improved.

2 It’s all in the detail – not everyone wants a drastic change, but a new fringe, added layers or small colour change can make a huge difference. Focus on your personalising and finishing skills.

3 Make sure you are aware of what celebrities are wearing – a new fringe or colour can be the next trend.

4 There’s so many digital courses, so choose wisely. Do your research. What do you want to learn? What do you admire about the person holding the education session? What will you learn from the session?

5 As well as updating your everyday skills, spend some time on your creativity. Playing with hair is an important part of our job as you think outside the box.

6 Working on a mannequin head is not like working on a real model/client – but it does mean you can try something new without any tears if it goes wrong! Push yourself to try new textures, new cutting techniques and new shapes.

7 Take advantage of any free education your product partners are offering. Many are offering sessions in business as well as creativity so make sure you are part of it.

8 There are some great educators around the world offering digital education. At TONI&GUY we have uploaded Get the Looks onto our IGTV, social media can be a great place to be inspired.

9 Perfect your specialist area, but make sure you are competent in all skills. You need to be able to accommodate every request that comes through your door – from short hair to Afro to curls and long hair.

NEW YORK – What good is a beautiful upstyle if it doesn’t have staying power ? Sam Villa ArTeam Member, shares 4 key foundation techniques that provide solid anchor for most upstyles. And with prom and wedding seasons just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to check them out

“As professionals, it’s our duty to build beautiful upstyles that stand up to that first dance, walk down the aisle or photo shoot!” says Peters.

These 4 techniques act as a blueprint for the style, as well as provide a solid base to pin hair into that creates solid staying power.

Upstyle Foundations (in order of strength)

  1. Braid – The strongest of the foundations, it can be designed at any angle and provide a traveling anchor to pin hair into to create a soft look with a lot of strength.  The braid can be totally hidden under the top layer of hair, or not.
  2. Ponytail – Also a very secure base with a centralized focus on the look, ponytails are placed in strategic spots to create the silhouette.  This is a great technique for those with very heavy hair.
  3. Bun – Similar to the ponytail technique, but a bun creates a fuller natural form to build upon.  Texture crafted on other parts of the hair can be floated over the fullness of the bun to add volume and strength at the same time.
  4. Twist – The softest of all the foundations, a twist can travel across the head and other hair can be pinned to it to build texture and volume.  It’s ideal for building strength and volume in half up/half down looks.
