Runway to Realway

Styling Workshop with Kenneth Stoddart

1st July

9am - 5pm


In this course, I will break down the core techniques it takes to create several looks that are on trend on the International Runway and show you how to adapt them to a more wearable version for your salon clients.

The looks that I will be showing are

  • A ‘natural textured blow dry’ using brushes and tongs

  • A ‘wet look’ off the face style with natural texture

  • A textured bun/chignon with fly-aways

  • A retro ponytail


These four looks will be demonstrated in the morning before breaking for Lunch (supplied).  Each student will be required to bring their own model (long hair) to start after lunch in a hands on workshop.  Once all models are complete, each student will have their model photographed and they will take away their photos in digital format to use for Instagram etc.

Each student will leave the class with a thorough understanding of …

  • The importance of the consultation and the decision making process based on the client/model and the occasion/job.  

  • The importance of prepping the hair based on the decisions made in the consultation.  The choice of products and tools used to prep the hair.

  • The longevity of the hairstyle as well as the climatic conditions that the hair has to withstand.  The changes that have to be made to the style and the products and techniques that are used to support these changes.

  • How to analyse the hair (length, texture, density, porosity) as well as face shape and body shape.

  • How to dress out and style the client/model to the finished look
