Last week I had the chance to meet one of hairdressing's legends....Patrick Cameron!
this young man first made a name for himself in his home town, then his home
country, and then the world... New Zealand
Renowned for his beautiful, soft and feminine hair ups, this man is a genius when it comes to dressing hair and for someone that does not ‘do’ weddings (or much hair up for that matter) it was inspiring and motivational. He executed two hair up demonstrations with ease, making something that technically can be quite difficult to achieve look so simple and the results were both effortless and chic.
I’m not one for being star struck, don’t get me wrong, everyone loves to meet celebrities and their idols, but these people do exactly the same as we do every day. They just do a lot of travelling with it. But there was something very humbling about his energy and passion for this industry and teaching especially. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity of chatting with Patrick Cameron during the event and being able to pick the brains of someone so creative and inspiring was a true privilege.

The event was held at one of the conference suites at the new
Kirklees College building at Chapel Hill,
and the way that Patrick engaged with the audience of mainly young student
hairdressers in the making was phenomenal and is something I certainly aspire to emulate in the future!
