I’d been a few weeks before for an evening to learn about some Catwalk hair styles coming this year (See further down the post!) and was invited in for a cut and colour, perfect timing for making me…

Trevor Sorbie Blow Masterclass

(Their website is here) We were shown how to create three hair styles, straight with volume at the roots, managing curly hair, and Glam but natural.
