Project X Gets Razor Sharp with Angelo Vallillo

Angelo Vallillo is the latest Fellowship member to volunteer his time to the Project X team, opening up the doors of his new salon, DNA Artspace, for a day of mentoring and education.

DNA Artspace in Nottingham is a new multi-functional space, that brings together a collaborative community of creatives – including artists, musicians and DJs, as well as Angelo and his business partner, Dale.

This inspiring spot was the destination for the Project X team this week, as they headed up to see Angelo demonstrate razor cutting in a hands-on seminar.

In his ‘Cutting with the Blade’ education session, Angelo showcased the technique to the team in a detailed demonstration, before it was time to get hands on.

“I had such a great day,” says team member Phillippa Lee. “The workspace was just amazing, and the vibe was so chilled. We started the morning just chatting and getting to know Angelo and his career, as well as learning more about  DNA and its concept.”

Charlotte Johnson agrees, adding: “I love the fact that I’m always learning and updating my knowledge as part of Project X. Angelo was a brilliant teacher and a lovely person and his salon is so cool. We learnt to cut a bob using a blade, which was a great technique which I will be taking back and using in the salon!”
