Kate wins 3rd Place in the Provincials!!
Well, it’s been awhile since we’ve shared our news! A lot has happened this summer at the Verve house.
Firstly! We are SO proud to announce that Kate just recently placed 3rd in the Allied Beauty Association Provincials. This was her first competition and we are so pleased with the outcome. This is a yearly live competition hosted by the Allied Beauty Association. The competitors have 45 minutes to complete a cut and style on previously coloured hair. They are judged on the International points system based on suitability to the models facial structure, technique, suitability of the colour, styling, cleanliness etc. It was a close race between the top 3, and Kate certainly held her own. Look out! Next year she will be in it to win it!
This summer also saw our Creative Director, Amber George, do what she loves best… Education! She attended a 3 day Fashion Forecast seminar with Internationally renowned hairstylist Sharon Blain. Sharon has 40+ years experience with over 500 competitions wins under her belt. Her specialty is in styling, and styling is what they did. Her seminar left Amber very inspired and actually mind blown. Very shortly after, Amber headed to Paris. While there she attended the Haute Coiffure Francaise, and then a 3 day Atelier hosted by L’oreal Professionnel. She spent a day with World renowned editorial hairstylist, Bruno Weppe, at the infamous Pin Up Studios. The next day was spent at the Institute Francaise du Mode, learning about trend forecast, design and the marriage between hair and fashion. The following day was spent at the L’oreal Academy learning about the trend forecasting in hair for the future and learning from L’oreal global ambassador Christophe Gaillet. What an amazing experience! So if you are interested in the cutting edge of fashion, our hairstylists and salon is the place to be!
