The Wildlife team held their very own education seminar last night – Jayne Wild, Dieter Mersmann and Ali Holmes unveiling the ‘how to’ behind next season hair design.
Wildlife Hair Education
The inaugural sell out seminar is an innovative move for Australia’s A Grade salons – Wildlife being one of the first to open its education curriculum, directional vision and winning Hair Expo submissions to an intimate gathering of stylists and technicians.
“There are no secrets here, it’s all about sharing,” said Jayne.
And share the Wildlife team did, educating the room within the magnificent surrounds of their Milsons Point salon – divulging predictions and practices to illustrate the season ahead.
Borrowing inspiration from fashion’s global boundary-less design houses, the array of hair designs and colours were undeniably strong – vaunting a return to asymmetry, clever disconnection and striking colour mixations involving black, blue and green as dictated by Mr Dieter Mersmann.
Participants welcomed news on a bold, creative future for hair before witnessing the Wildlife way of taking a trend set and personalising it – melting sharp edges with clever graduation and calming outlandish vibrancy with intelligent formulations for an interpretation true to their understated in-house style.
“It’s all about ying and yang, strong cuts softened with ‘pre-loved’ colour direction. We’re still creating strong inversions but with a more curvaceous element,” says Jayne.
The notion of ‘pre-loved’ or ‘vintage’ guided much of the colour direction presented by Goldwell Ambassador Dieter and fellow Wildlife colourist and Goldwell Ambassador Jemima Wright as they feathered bright red and sliced dusty pink throughout muted tones including rose gold (Dieter’s clear favourite) – always accentuating the cut.
Dieter reiterated the importance of ‘less is more’ in the business of hair colour while discussing his current preference for mixing warm and cool tones together for an epic yet wearable colour reaction.
It was truly engaging to watch the Wildlife team create live and organically.
“We love companies like Goldwell and ghd and the support they give us, but the time came for us to do it ourselves – in a nice, nurturing environment,” said the beautiful Jayne.
And you would never have guessed the absence of a professional company’s involvement – the Wildlife seminar was executed with the global level of education expected from world class learning forums.
