Ahead of the session, the team were set an assignment by Robert, to create a mood board that brings to life their signature style, what inspires and excites them about colour, it didn’t need to be all hair it could be a photography style, fashion image, make up reference etc. It could be a single image that they loved and want to discuss or a selection of a few images.
During the session, Robert gave the team an overview of his amazing career, and how he creates an award-winning collection. He then spoke about his awards journey and what this means in reality and, how to implement this in your business. Moving on to creating your own personal brand. The team were asked to present their mood boards. It was then all about ‘The story of the wig’ and ‘The art of grey blending’!
