True Grit’s been in Melbourne for the Hair Expo!

18 June 2016

Ashlee with Michael Beel

Jacqui, Sarah and Ashlee have been in Melbourne for the Australian Hair Expo and Awards. We were nominated for Best Salon Design and although we didn’t win (congratulations Edward and Co Alexandra!) the team had a fantastic time and were wowed by the truly inspirational hairdressers in Australia. They attended many look-and-learns and discovered new styles of cutting and colouring which they’re keen to put into practice back home in the True Grit salon. The work was original, pushed boundraies with colour and inspired Sarah to create her own collection, ‘Aztec’ (see photos below!)

Jacqui attended the Top Salon Summit 2016 was an inspirational experience for her. Lorna Evans was certainly a highlight for her sculptural-style hair-ups.

Ashlee worked on Michael Beel’s stage show, where she spent all afternoon and the evening working with the iD team from L’Oreal.

We were utterly inspired by Lorna Evans during the Expo. She is a massive name in the Australian hair industry and is a whiz at creating stunning hair ups.

Sarah was so inspired by the techniques being applied at the Expo that she has come up with her own Collection. ‘Aztec’ is a collection of cuts and colours focusing on unique texture and feathered looks. This is a highly creative, not-your-usual style, not for the faint hearted!
