Chris Hunter, owner of WILLOMINA Salon, hosted the first ever COMMMUNITY education event in late May, otherwise known as COMMMUNITY 01.

The series of events was built around the idea of hairdressing education that isn’t driven by products and brands and is available as a safe place and intimate education setting, starting off with such success that COMMMUNITY 02 is already in the works. It was also created around the need for more education and social gatherings in the wake of COVID-19, which negatively impacted this sphere.

“COMMMUNITY is more than education, with its party atmosphere, nibbles, goodie bags and booze, the day is an awesome social day out for any one who attends,” Chris said. The series is further described as “fun educational events for hairstylists who think like artists”.

The first event was hosted for 30 guests and presented eight haircuts from start to finish by a renowned line-up of hairdressers – 2017 Australian Hairdresser of the Year Jason Fassbender, Matt Jones of Edwards and Co, Alana Dunphy of WILLOMINA and Shane Crowe of Neighbourhood salon.

COMMMUNITY 02, otherwise titled Bobs Ya Uncle, will take place on July 26 and feature hairdressers Stephanie Dell, Christopher Byrne of Sloans and the FAME Team, Rochelle Boidin of WILLOMINA, Shane Crowe and Tom Bozier of Artellier Sydney, in a session dedicated to cut and colour for bobs and short hair, all amidst music and a party atmosphere. As hosted by Alana Dunphy, the day will also include a business discussion between Chris Hunter and Ed West.
