A Day with Siobhan Jones and The Fellowship of British Hairdressing
The Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s Colour Project have recently spent a day at the award-winning Rose and Wild salon with the colourist Siobhan Jones.
In a bustling and expanding industry, it’s key to be different and make your mark with your own personal brand. Whether you’re a salon that’s famous for dramatic colour changes or you known for soft, natural results, having an a strong and identifiable aesthetic is important for attracting clients and expanding your business.
Rose and Wild has developed a stable brand under the ownership of Siobhan Jones, and it was her branding expertise that centred the stage in the final Colour Project mentoring day of 2019.
“Our day with Siobhan really got us thinking about ourselves as individual colourists,” says Lea Shaw from Rural Fringe. “It really made me question a lot about my own journey to this point and the day gave me lots of food for thought about where I want to go as a colourist after the Colour Project.”
“I came away thinking that I’m on the right path,” she continues. “When I started the Colour Project I had a very different opinion about what makes a successful hairdresser, and Siobhan just strengthened that view. I love doing beautiful soft hair; it’s what I’m good at and what I want to be known for moving forward. I have great appreciation for bright crazy hair but it’s just not me – and I know now that’s OK.”
Siobhan began the day by describing how she created and marketed her own brand, as well as explaining crucial decisions she made to develop and create Rose and Wild’s aesthetic. Next, she then presented two models on the stage, demonstrating how her colour concepts and approaches to hairdressing were developed and how they came to life on peoples hair.
In the afternoon, it was passed over to the team to create their own colour wefts representing their work as a creative colourists.
