Sometimes it feels like we’d travel to the ends of the earth to sit in on a good hair class. Imagine my surprise when we received an invitation to come and observe some cutting and styling in our very own backyard!
Ok, I mean Tysons. But practically the backyard.
Salon Lofts brought in Tracey Bocci to demonstrate some styling techniques. Tracey is a brand ambassador for label.m. And while we do not carry this line of hair care, we learned that it is used backstage for London Fashion Week. We sat front and center and watched her showcase a couple of “distressed”formal styles and even some fake fringe! (That’s right, bangs for a day!)
Next up was Oscar Bond for Hattori Hanzo. While the cutting he demonstrated was pretty… safe, his British accent and comical personality kept us on the edge of our seats. That, and the cupcakes. And did I mention cocktails? It’s been years since a gin and tonic graced these lips.
So between the swag bag, the liquids, the sweets, the stories, the brushing, the teasing and the fabulous hairspray wafting through the air, we all managed to come away with new inspiration to bring behind the chair. That, and it was just nice to be with my girls.
