Global hairdressing icon Sharon Blain has released a book titled The Confident Stylist that shares her wealth of knowledge from over five decades in the industry. In this career she has amassed over 5000 international awards and educated generations of hairdressers around the world. As Sharon ends her live educating career with a final tour this year, her education will continue on in this book and her online education empire.
“It’s been a crazy spectacular ride, and after more than 55 years in the industry, I’m finally ready to share a book so special, it’s been five decades in the making! My hairstyling journey has taken me down many roads. Roads and travels full of twists and turns, great moments, challenging moments, incredibly inspiring moments – but most of all I’ve gained a wealth of knowledge I’m so humbled to share with you,” Sharon said.
The comprehensive 228-page book delivers Sharon’s expertise, determination and skill in written form, offering both instructional pictures and breathtaking imagery as a unique guide to hairdressers. The book details Sharon’s hacks, secrets, tips and techniques to inspire and educate.
Topics include unpacking styling foundations, understanding the characteristics and impact of the hair, face and body, learning about tools and products, the science and theory of curls, blow dries, waves and thermal setting and how fashion and history influences contemporary hair. The book also goes behind the scenes on Sharon’s award-winning photographic collections.
“The next phase of my journey is ensuring my legacy lives on in the hearts and minds of future stylists. I hope it’s a book you’ll keep and cherish forever, referring back to it time and time again as you grow your skills into the confident stylist I wish for you to be,” she said.
