On Sunday the 16th of October, 700 fans packed into the Novello Theatre in London for a line-up of five of the finest hairdressers on God’s green earth, doing what they do best, but on stage!
Introducing the show, Nicky Pope the UK publisher of TRIBU-TE magazine thanked everyone here at Great Lengths for our continued support, telling the audience:
“Great Lengths has been by our side at the Tribu-te since launching our first live show in 2006. A thoughtful, creative giant among hair extensions companies, Great Lengths has a well-deserved global reputation for putting high standards and ethical practices at the top of their agenda, and we appreciate their vision and spirit”.
The line-up of artists included Tim Hartley, who used clippers to style two Afro models, creating a big finish to say the least! As a first-timer to the show, Cos Sakkas took the stage. As the international artistic director at Toni&Guy, his skill and artistic vision was evident throughout.
The Frenchman, Christophe Gaillet who has previously performed in TRIBU-TE shows in Paris, took to the stage in London for the first time. Jayne Wild, three-time winner of Hair Expo’s Australian Hairdresser of the Year, also showed us how fierce female hairdressers can be, creating her look ‘Stairs to Nowhere’.
Last, but certainly not least, was Angelo Seminara. Having teamed up with Great Lengths as Global Ambassador in December 2015, Angelo’s styles played on various elements; from length, colour and texture.
Hair ornaments and long Great Lengths extensions were central to Angelo’s performance. We loved the looks that he created at the TRIBU-TE show, entertaining everyone with his ever-present showmanship and stage presence.
The performances at the show were nothing short of spectacular and highlighted the connection between cutting hair and the art of styling– symbolising it as an expressive art form in its own right!
