The world’s greatest hairdressing artists will be welcome in Rome’s fair, on 6th and 7th November. Two intense days during which creativity, great imagination and above all art and ideas sharing will be protagonists of performances, shows, stages and workshops, allowing to draw inspiration for the new trends 2017.
Obviously, among the talented prodigy there will be him, Paul Falltrick. We are sure that those who are already involved into this industry don’t need any introduction, but for those who are still beginner we just want to mention his Eastern Hairdresser price at British Hairdressing Awards in 1997. Since then his fame continues to rise and his flair to be a reference model even for people that skilfully control the technique.
If we add that Paul Falltrick is art director of Matrix, owner of two recognize salons in Essex, founder of one of the most internationally renowned academies, that he is constantly sought after all around the world for giving vitality to catwalks and fashion field… well, the verdict is yours!
But, dear aficionados don’t discourage. He too, like everyone after all, he began his career just as a common assistant.
What makes him a big?
Certainly his ability to create increasingly fashion, innovative and impact haircuts and hairstyles, accurate in details and shadows. A contrast of colors and shades that draws suggestions from everywhere and evokes journeys, places, cultures, ideologies, nature, emotions.
But sometimes this is not enough to make such a great hairdresser like him. What made him so it is undoubtedly his humility, his desire to experience again and again, to go beyond his limits when he realizes each haircut, to learn from others never feeling on top of anyone. In short his consciousness that it is always possible to improve, enrich, perfect himself humanity and professionally.
