Old Hollywood Comes to Voila
January 18, 2013
Hear “Old Hollywood” and the phrase will conjure visions of beautiful women and handsome men in elegant attire, young ladies with hair in gentle waves and pinned-back curls, hinting at an era of class and sophistication. To celebrate the style and taste of Old Hollywood, we held an event at the Voila Institute on December 3rd, 2012, featuring techniques and looks of the era. Following a vintage trend, these hair design techniques held expand what we can do for our clients. With about 80 people in the audience, Alecs Sweete, Andrea Gallant, Paris Holmes and Tracey Howell took the stage to inspire and educate both our staff and students to think outside the box. Their presentation featured the new Nectaya hair colour and the use and application of a “wave iron.” In order to recreate fitting old Hollywood-style looks, most of the hair pieces were created from jewellery that was altered for the collection. Immediately following the event, a photo shoot was held with photographer Andy King.
