A hair event is not a hair event if it doesn’t look like something out of Mars Attacks — the architectural shapes, gravity-defying styles, out-of-this-world pops of color. And the Davines Creative Style Academy made sure their graduation ceremony was that and more.
There are haircare companies, then there is Davines. The Italian-born haircare brand has been perfecting their craft since 1983, but their philosophy extends beyond creating excellent products — they foster a sense of community among beauty professionals around the world.
Thus the inception of Creative Style Academy, Davines’ intensive training program where their Educators and Master Trainers fly to Manila to mentor hairdressers from the country’s top salons.
At the final ceremony, industry leaders will choose a deserving graduate to be the Philippines’ representative to the Davines World Wide Hair Tour.
Joining the event is Allilon Hair Education, a London-based group of hairstylists that produce educational hair shows and seminars. They will present their Change Collection through a look and learn.
