Colour Project Team Talk Concepts with Paul Denison
The Fellowship’s Colour Project Team had their first mentoring workshop with talented colourist Paul Denison.
Paul, who is based in Ken Picton Salon, gave the team a fantastic insight into his career and how he is consistently turns his concepts into reality.
He started the day by talking the team through how he builds an idea from scratch, finding his initial inspiration, to translating it into hair and creating the final look. The brief Paul was given for the day was the ‘dark side’ and this was brought to life through two models; both had the same haircut, however one represented light and the other dark, demonstrating how each can completely change the outcome and how effective subtle colour placement can be.
He also incorporated detailed sectioning patterns into the looks, inspired by Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ album cover, bringing his workshop and the ‘Dark Side’ concept full circle.
“It’s very interesting to see how each individual interprets a brief and whilst the team were presenting, I made sure to offer guidance on how to create a beautiful and streamlined mood board that best reveals your own understanding of an idea or concept,” said Paul.
The team ended the day by working on their own creative sectioning patterns and colours on block heads, with Paul on-hand to provide guidance and his best tips and tricks. On her time in the workshop, team member Natalie Newton from Sarai Hair & Beauty commented: “The whole day was so much fun and really relaxed and interactive, helping us to get the most out of the day. It was amazing to get the team back together and I’m excited for us to put our new skills into practice!”
