The Wrap: R+Co Sydney Atelier

It’s hard to start your week much better than turning up at Wild Life Salon under the overwhelming presence of the Sydney Harbour Bridge on a bright, sunny day for the first R+Co workshop of the year. A group of hairdressers did just that, showing up this week to learn from R+Co educator Barney Martin, with R+Co’s inimitable cool factor pervading the entire day.

Barney showed off two live styling demonstrations and one live cut, fusing a sense of 80s frivolity (not to mention volume) with the brand’s modern aesthetic. Complex sectioning and hair sewing and threading techniques proved hero skills to creating the intriguing up styles. Product information of the brand’s variety of necessary styling products was also divulged, with the presenters explaining that R+Co’s care products specifically aid with styling, ensuring the hair is firm and malleable.

“It’s very inspiring meeting all these young hairdressers that are so keen to learn,” Barney enthused. “It’s always fun to demonstrate classic techniques that never go out of style. We’ve seen crimpers make a comeback and it’s been great educating the guys in new crimping styles. It’s also great to have the opportunity to show our Australian stylists what’s being taught in the US, as well as globally by R+Co Educators. Now more than ever, fashion is global, and I want to make sure our stylists are learning what’s relevant.”
