Unbelievable response to the Tribu-te show in London last weekend – it’s as if 700 hairdressing audience can talk of nothing else! And we’re thrilled. In a packed West End theatre we watched five amazing artists work their magic. Without resort to gimmicks, or fancy production, each hairdressing wizard had just 20 minutes on stage and a only two models to keep their discerning audience entertained. Tim Hartley –  great friend of ours and stage artist extraordinaire – kicked off the proceedings and took us all by surprise working with two Afro models and carving shaped into their hair. We loved it. Cos Sakkas followed his lead and presented two fierce yet beautiful looks totally on trend for SS17 that demonstrated why he is current London Hairdresser of the Year (at the British Hairdressing Awards). Making his London debut for Tribu-te, Frenchman Christophe Gaillet – an avant grade genius in our view – worked without speaking yet held us in his thrall. A commercial look was flipped to become avant-garde – a second sci-fi model broke her own hair accessories in a stunning piece of hair showmanship. Jayne Wild – also a newbie for Tribu-te – is three times Australian Hairdresser of the Year and left us in no doubt as to why. Her stunning statement hair on the theme ‘staircase to nowhere’ was intricate, cleverly worked and seriously gorgeous – with costumes to compliment. To close, Angelo Seminara, arguably one of the finest contemporary hairdressers we could hope to work with, showcased looks using added hair pieces which were a level above any other we’ve ever seen. Bravo to all and thank you. We also owe gratitude to DJ Lissa who played awesome tunes to keep us happy in the breaks, and to five emerging talents from HairClubLive who helped introduce our headliners. A great night and see you next year on 15 October! A big appreciate bow of respect from us to our sponsors Great Lengths, L’Oreal Professional Products and ghd Professional.
