In a week which saw him once again named as a nominee for HJ’s British Hairdresser of the Year, Angelo Seminara showed he is still dedicated to sharing his insight with the next generation as he provided two inspirational mentoring days for the Fellowship for British Hairdressing’s F.A.M.E Team and Colour Project teams.
As one of the most acclaimed hairdressers of his generation, a session with Angelo ranks high on the wishlist of many young hairdressers, and with the help of team leaders Nick Irwin and Paul Dennison, it became a reality for these two Fellowship teams.
The F.A.M.E. Team spent the day at Anthony Mascolo’s Library Space, where Angelo shared his insightful approach to hair and beauty through presentations and demonstrations of his techniques. The team also got to get hands on with Angelo’s Imprinter colour device, using spray paint to create diverse looks.
“I can’t believe it happened,” says AJ Cockrell. “It has has been a dream of mine since I can remember – one to one training with an idol has been incredible.”
The Colour Project had an equally inspiring day with Angelo, hosted at Hunter Collective and with support from Davines. With a firm focus on technique, the day saw Angelo and his team showcase his flamboyage and imprinting techniques and allow the team to get totally hands on with their guidance. While he’s known for his creative and fantasy colour, Angelo is also a master of wearable results and showed the team techniques to use in the salon.
“Flamboyage will be so useful for the salon,” says team member Poppy Devine. “I loved Angelo's use of colour in a simple way; not going overboard with lots of bright colours but subtly changing tones by even half a shade to really enhance someone's personality and skin tone. I’m going to reign in some of the bright colours in the future, to more subtle and subdued tones to create simple beauty.”
Kelsey Franklin agrees, adding: “Angelo has changed the way we colour hair and is the innovator we need. This was honestly the best day ever – I didn’t want it to end.”
