Inspire! Once again did not disappoint!

The day began with Andrew Barton interviewed by Nicola Chamberlain |National Wholesale Education Manager for L’Oréal Professionnel UK. Andrew opened up and regaled us with anecdotes of his journey from modest beginnings as an apprentice at a salon in Barnsley, through his successes with Saks, bringing his own product range to market, winning British Hairdresser of the Year, running his own salon and now Creative Director at the Urban Retreat in Harrods. It was a lively interview and one feels his journey is definitely ongoing. A coffee break and Anne Veck took the stage producing amazing avant guarde work that has won her many awards plus beautiful commercial work that can be reproduced to surprise and delight your own clients. Now for lunch. A delicious two course buffet with time to peruse the many stands in the exhibition hall and pick up bargains galore! To complete the day Indola ambassadors, Chanel Nott and Andy Smith presented their complete Street Style Collection giving colour, cutting and styling tips so that everything seen could be recreated simply and easily. Everyone left on a high. Motivated and inspired, just as the day had promised and it delivered.

The FHA would like to thank its sponsors Indola, Wella, L’Oreal and Corioliss for their support and exhibitors including Alan d Education, Sweethearts Hair Design, Spencer Dudman, and World Pay.
