Taking to the stage at Salon Melbourne 2014, Lorna Evans and her styling team once again produced exquisite long hair looks in a jam-packed two-day schedule.
Day one of Salon Melbourne began with a 4.45am call time for Lorna and her backstage styling team that traveled from far and wide across Australia including Perth, Queensland, Sydney, Canberra, Horsham, and Melbourne.
“The response I got from stylists to be a part of this exciting event was overwhelming and we all had a fantastic time together,” said Lorna.
“Like all backstage shows, there was a little madness – with power outs that ran us a little late – but I can honestly say I was most proud of the fact that every single person in the backstage room did what was needed to get the Bridal Show onstage by 9.30am.”
For Lorna’s Bridal Show, the team was joined by makeup artist to the stars, Becca Gilmartin, and they created six beautiful bridal hair and makeup finishes. The models were dressed by Luci Dibella, Angela Marcuccio and Dannie Bridal and the hair was dressed with jewellery from Stephanie Browne, and featured flowers by Good Grace and Humour.
After the seminar, Lorna and her team headed straight for the Main Stage to showcase five different models with long hair looks. Lorna was joined by two of Zumay salon’s stylists – Amber White and Beth Dunning – and throughout the 20 minute presentation, they shared tips and tricks on styling.
“If you are inspired, your staff will be inspired, and your clients will be inspired, and together, this is by far the best way to grow a business – by never letting your clients, or yourself, become bored,” said Lorna.
“Education is the key to success. I am a bit of a stats girl and love the figures the core of learning gives us. If you see something undertaken as a demonstration, within two weeks you are likely to retain 30 per cent. If you attend a hands-on workshop and simulate the real thing, you are likely to retain 90 per cent!” she said.
“Seeing exciting things at an expo is to inspire and to attend a class is all about being guaranteed to have the skills to grow your business.”
