Cutting Co-Lab

We started strong with a line-up of all-star cutters covering everything from cool-girl bobs, lobs and shags to men’s grooming. The Co-Lab squad—Dyson Guest Artist @anhcotran, Virtue® Brand Ambassador @buddywporter, Hot Tools Professional Guest Artist @chrisjones_hair, L’ANZA Healing Haircare Global Director @matt.swinney, TIGI® Professional Creative Director @joeltorresstyle and Victory Barber & Brand Founder @mattyconrad—showed us their best tips and tricks, with plenty of jokes. And something super cool: we got to see a few of these artists’ fave ARC™ Scissors and how they use them!

Virtue®

More super-strong hair education came with the Virtue® team, who brought celeb hairdresser @hairbyadir and celeb colorist @nicolaclarkecolour to the stage with Virtue® Founder and CEO @melisseshaban. Adir and Nicola are responsible for some of Hollywood’s biggest names…Nicola colors MADONNA’S hair (SO COOL), plus Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet, and Adir is the longtime hairdresser to Reese Witherspoon and Kristen Stewart, so we loved to hear these two dish on their techniques.
