Jonathan's Blog........

This week I headed to the Wella Studios in Manchester for day two of the Sebastian MOB Programme and got loads of inspiration to come back to the salon with.

We were a group of 6-7 people, each with our own model. We had a full morning of training on the latest Sebastian Cellophane products and then a professional 'put-up' demonstration from Sebastian Educator (and Vinery Senior Stylist!) Lisa Bates.

In the afternoon we prepped our models for colour, using the new cellophane range. I used a combination of Vanilla & Honeycomb on the bottom with Ice Blonde on the Veil to give gloss and shine. We then got the opportunity to play about, putting the hair up with some expert assistance from Richard Windle who is the Sebastian Head of Education.

I basically crimped all the hair, leaving a straight veil on the top, then backcombed it all and styled it into the shape that I wanted, leaving a sleek straight veil which sat on top. I used a variety of Sebastian products to achieve this look including Zero Gravity Hairspray, Texture Maker and the amazing Liquid Gloss.

It was a fantastic day, helping each other out and learning with each other - we presented our models at the end of the session, talking through our process and we all pitched in with questions, technique-sharing and advice which was very productive. I also got some really good feedback on the look that I had created. It was also great having such a unique opportunity to tap knowledge from Richard and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Of course, a day training in Manchester wouldn't be complete without a few cheeky drinks afterwards..Roll on Day 3! to be continued......

Love Jonathan....Vinery Stylist x
