Q+A with UVA Salon
How did you and the team come up with the collection?
Our collection was inspired by current trends and things we do every day in the salon with an editorial and raw edge.
How did the team work together to achieve the aesthetic you’d envisioned?
We collaborated with other creative individuals such as Lana Wilkinson, Chantelle Baker and Ed Purnomo to create the collection, drawing inspiration from lots of different avenues and all members of the salon team and creatives we worked with.
In what ways has winning a Hair Expo Award had an effect on your salon/team?
Winning Salon Team of the Year has made our team stronger and given us the confidence to believe in ourselves, and to push more boundaries creatively. It has made such a positive impact and made us closer as a salon.
What is the message that you wanted the collection to convey?
We wanted to convey a commercial look to high fashion styling and wanted to show that beautiful hair can win.
What advice do you have for salon teams thinking about entering the Hair Expo Awards?
Be prepared for hard work and have a clear vision of the looks you want to represent your salon. You must be committed all year to strive for the title, as it’s not just a photo shoot but a representation of who you are as a salon. We would definitely recommend entering the Hair Expo Salon Team of the Year category, as it’s highly motivating and a great bonding experience for your salon.
