Collection: Fall/Winter 2013
Patrick Cameron's new collection, Spellbound - The Lost Art of Vintage Hair, takes us on a journey of glamour through the 1930s, '40s, '50s and '60s.
Using classic techniques - the invaluable basis of the hairdressing craft - Patrick presents iconic vintage looks and their modern, up-to-the-minute equivalent 'red carpet' interpretations.
Patrick will demonstrate 8 styles step-by-step with his unique flair for education and larger-than-life personality. Spellbound is a truly iconic show and is guaranteed to evoke a magic atmosphere complemented by dazzling couture and unbounded glamour.
"Vintage-inspired hair plays a massive part in fashion," says Patrick, "and I felt it was very important for today's market to demonstrate how to create these looks using the correct methods. Working as a global educator, I have realised that some basic hairdressing skills are disappearing, and it is essential to show how relevant these techniques are to achieving the cutting-edge styles of today."
Patrick continues, "I am fascinated by the allure of old Hollywood, and I have often adopted it as a reference in developing my work over the years, but I have never before focused primarily on actual 'foundation techniques'. In order to present a cohesive and informative show that is beneficial to a wide audience, I wanted to bridge the gap between classic and trend. The period I have focused on is truly the golden era of dressing hair."
The collection is divided into four segments, each representing a different decade and the quintessential looks and artistry of that period.
