The team travelled to the HQ of Metropolis in London for their Avant-Garde team day with the amazing Robert Masciave. Internationally renowned, Robert Masciave is now one of hairdressing’s most creative and innovative voices, with over 30 years’ experience as a leading hair artist. Robert’s trademark style is lavishly extravagant yet extremely approachable.
The masterclass for the team was all about "Robert’s journey through hair", and a combination of Avant-Garde hair and cutting.
Kay Binnersley: “OMG what a day we had with Robert. Truly inspirational, captivating and jaw dropping creative. Thank you and Sam so much for all you do to give us such wonderful experiences.”
Emma Simmons: “Oh my word, what a day! Inside the mind of a genius…. I was enthralled in the Avant-Garde demo and just love Robert’s approach to cutting hair, a truly inspiring day, I loved every bit of it.”
Lea Shaw added: “I absolutely loved today. Getting an insight into the mind of Robert and how he works and processes his ideas was actually a bit mind blowing but amazing! I loved the simplicity of his techniques to make extraordinary looks, nothing over complicated just beautiful hairdressing. Cannot wait to put some new skills into practice.”
Nicola Hamm: “Our day with Robert Masciave was incredibly inspirational! I loved the insight into his collections and how he creates them. After watching his cutting demo, I can't wait to try it out in the salon."
