Patrick Cameron's new collection, "Spellbound", 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.
"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 an educator globally, 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."
"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.
The 1930s – Reverse pin-curling and finger waves, and how to create timeless elegant looks using this preparation.
The 1940s – Rolls and classic roller setting provides the groundwork to achieving these polished looks.
The 1950s – Sculpted hair, beautifully set and styled into gorgeous feminine shapes.
The 1960s – Setting and backcombing the hair into exquisite extravagant volumes.
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.
