BTC “On Tour” Dallas Show—Here’s Everything That Happened!
Everything That Went Down at BTC “On Tour” Dallas
BTC was just in Texas, so you know we HAD to do it big for “On Tour” Dallas, aka the third stop on our six-city tour. That’s why we took over the iconic House of Blues music venue with 700 hairdressers and an epic lineup of top industry educators, influencers and celebrity stylists for five hours of live education on all things balayage, blonding, cutting, texture, haircolor, styling and social media! Scroll to see everything that went down (two words: YEE. HAW.), then TAP HERE to watch the full livestream with lifetime access.
Who did we bring down south with us?! This hair 👏 squad 👏 is EVERYTHING: @chrisappleton1, @zakmascolo, @lo_wheelerdavis, @mattyconrad, @leahfreeman1, @lizhaven, @buddywporter, @shmeggsandbaconn, @naeemahlafond, @chrisjones_hair, @michelleoconnorbeauty, @wesdoeshair, @rachelwstylist, @markdolan2, @evanjosephcurls and @jackwinnpro.
BTC Founder Mary Rector-Gable kicked things off with an inspirational message that got the crowd ready to do some learning, soul-searching and celebrating! Her message? Hard work works. Say yes. Follow your own path—you’re the only one who knows where you’re going. Push through your fears, believe in your own dreams, and stay the course! We love you, Mary!
Celebrity Styling with Chris Appleton (OMG!)
Go big or go home in Texas, right? Kim K’s hairdresser @chrisappleton1 showed exactly how he uses Color Wow products to achieve his most coveted celeb looks, from Ariana Grande’s famous snatched pony to Kim’s mega babe glass hair look. Chris served education AND some LOLs (he’s super funny), plus we totally felt the love when Mary introduced him!
Balayage & Blondes: Painting, Foils and Bright Blends
Okay, ya’ll…Texas LOVES their blondes! So we had the blonde squad drop their top tips: think #haindpaintbalayage with Schwarzkopf Professional Artistic Team Member @lizhaven, achieving icy platinum with @rachelwstylist and Aloxxi, major brightness with @lo_wheelerdavis using Schwarzkopf Professional and @jackwinnpro breaking down blonding.
Hair Cutting: Bobs, Lobs, Men’s, Dry-Cutting & Layers
How can you learn the ins and outs of your most-requested salon cuts, from men’s to bobs to layers and more? Come to BTC “On Tour” and watch the cutting segment! These dudes broke it DOWN: Toni & Guy CEO @zakmascolo with an edgy purple pixie, Victory Barber & Brand founder @mattyconrad with a must-know men’s cut, dry-cutting king @buddywporter using Virtue and ARC™ Scissors, soft bob master @chrisjones_hair with ARC™ Scissors, and L’ANZA Healing Haircare Artistic Design Team Member @markdolan2 with a gorgeous lob.
Texture: All Things Cutting & Styling
No need to be intimidated by naturally textured hair when you have The SALON by InStyle Creative Director @michelleoconnorbeauty, amika Global Artistic Director @naeemahlafond and BTC Team Member @evanjosephcurls sharing their knowledge! Whether you’re cutting curls, styling textured hair or creating new texture, they shared incredibly useful tips that has us craving curls!
Haircolor: Creative Color & Salon-Friendly Techniques
We know not all clients want to be blonde (but are they crazy?! JK.), so we were stoked to host a segment without any bleach onstage! TIGI® Brand Ambassador @wesdoeshair created an incredible ginger color, L’ANZA Global Healing Color Director @leahfreeman1 demoed super-quick creative color placement, and BTC Visual Editor @shmeggsandbaconn taught her go-to negative space color melt.
We love when the BTC fam gets to meet their fave artists, so we made it happen before the show at our sponsor booths! Attendees snapped photos with their faves, hit up the BTC merch booth and snagged free goodies at EVERY booth. Shout out to our incredible sponsors: Aloxxi, amika, ARC™ Scissors, ColorWow, Jack Winn Pro, L’ANZA Healing Haircare, Schwarzkopf Professional, The SALON by InStyle, TONI&GUY, Victory Barber & Brand, Virtue®, Salon Clouds+, Hot Tools and TIGI® Professionals.
