by laurahusband / last updated April 17, 2019

Beverly C, Cobella’s founder and Goldwell ambassador has an MBE and has won HJ’s British Hairdresser of the Year sponsored by Schwarzkopf Professional twice. She loves creating timeless looks and as part of HJ’s Life Through a Lens series, we asked her to share six of her most iconic images.

Beverly C’s versatility

“My daughter Jordanna and I created this when we relaunched the salon in 2018. It was a very exciting time for me to be back where I belong. It was a window campaign to catch the eye of the consumer by showing versatility in cut, colour and style.”

Memories

“I shot my BHA winning collection on the day of 9/11 in London with Clive Arrowsmith. My American model was in tears. I told her to go home but she stayed to get the shot. The emotion of this image will always be special to me.”

Memories

Simple innocence

“This photograph was taken from an eight-page fashion shoot I did for Toni & Guy Magazine. I loved working with super talented photographer, Stuart Weston. Working on hair for a fashion shoot is very different from working on your own collection. It is such an amalgamation of different strengths from the team. I love the simplicity and innocence of this particular shot, which is courtesy of Toni & Guy.”

An emotional connection

“This image is from my Identity collection for Goldwell UK. It’s essential to surround yourself with a team that understand your vision. I love the synergy of cut and colour but it’s the emotional connection that gives you the money shot.”

Like mother, like daughter

“This was one of the first looks my daughter and I worked on together.It was inevitably going to be a memorable day. The mood and the silhouette stood out as the most striking of the collection.”

Unstructured structure

“I created an unstructured effect within a structure. I get such a buzz from designing a cut when it’s the model’s own hair with no hair pieces. There are no rules or restrictions, only the ones we allow to get in the way. Clive Arrowsmith’s amazing photography makes it come to life beautifully.”
