The Trevor Sorbie team are coming to Salon International – and they have something very special planned. Although the specifics are top secret, we’ve been able to get Artistic Director Tom Connell to share a few sneaky details with us:
The Big Idea
“It’s not just about showcasing a new collection for us – we’re also interested in exploring how ideas are formed, then developing these live on stage. It’s about taking our audience on a journey with us, and allowing them to really understand our process and how we think. Our aim is to inspire other hairdressers’ to look at the world around them differently; as a constant source of ideas waiting to be explored.”
“In the last couple of years we have begun moving in a new direction. What we’re exploring as a team is everyone using their interests outside of hairdressing to influence their work. We’re empowered to work on our own collections/images and then we come to together to develop the strongest concepts.
Individually, the team have also been producing some incredible work. To name just a few things they’ve been up to…John Spanton released his ‘Study in Black & White’ (see gallery below) which has created a new conversation in colour, Mai Ha recently released her ‘A Single Man’ video showing the development of 9 different looks on one man, all shot within a 10 hour period (you can view it here) and they are both finalists for Most Wanted this year. We also have Johanna Cree-Brown who’ll be creating a show-stopping Avant Garde finale look for the show, to finish off what we hope will be a truly original and memorable show.
Obviously a man who needs no introduction is Trevor – we’re working closely together to develop the show concept, and I’m honoured to be opening the show cutting hair alongside a real industry icon.”
“I don’t want to spoil any surprises, but you can expect to see a new direction in colour, cutting and Avant Garde hair. We’ll be onstage at 10.30am on Sunday 15th October.”
