Creating long hair dressed looks brought together award-winning
hairdresser Karine Jackson alongside UNITE Senior Art Director Natasha
Pearson. Presenting runway and red carpet styling, Jackson detailed
secrets of her skillful prep. Returning artists Fredrik Karlsson and
Matthias Laveson from Salon F&M presented an elegant and sensual
encounter, skillfully delivered live on stage framed in their signature
headpiece style from the current ‘Windy Heritage’ collection.
UNITE European Art Director Daniel Jordan, Jason Liddiard and Estevan
Garner delivered their own take on modern inspired cutting. Liddiard
presented ‘Atelier Punk’, a collection of technically excellent work,
followed by a softer, indulgent collection. Jordan’s trademark
precision delivered cuts underpinned by technical excellence. Garner’s
presentations recreated a mix of style, delivered effortlessly.
Closing Global Sessions this year was a glam-couture avant-garde
presentation utilising braiding and hair extensions with award-winning London hairdresser Inanch Emir and Natasha Pearson, the completion of the Salon F&M collection and the use of conflicting texture by UNITE Creative Director Gary Baker.
"Education is the key to developing your work and my view was always
to invest in creating a show that united our artists to come together
and share their knowledge and learn from each other," explained Andrew
"Global Session London has been incredible and we now look forward to
San Diego in 2016."
Attendees also had the opportunity to learn from the stage artists at
Look & Learn sessions at satellite locations, while Andrew Dale hosted
Paramount Business 2, the continuation of UNITE business development
program, at the ACE Hotel in Shoreditch.
UNITE Global Session San Diego 2016 will take place on October 9 – 12. For more information visit www.unitehair.com
