Creative HEAD.

 

Brief.

Recognised at the UK’s largest and most well know hairdressing publication, Creative HEAD are a London based hairdressing magazine.

With a large amount of self hosted events, awards, initiatives and photoshoots carried out each month, I work with them on a retainer basis - covering their events and shooting behind the scenes.

For their first major event of the year - they presented Coterie In Session: Men. The event was hosted by Lee Kynaston as he pitted hair stylists Liam Campbell and Jody Taylor against each-other to create their favourite 70’s looks on two models each, set across two rounds - with the audience voting for the winner at the end.

I was briefed to cover the show in my event photography reportage style - capturing the stylists at work, the sponsor, Babyliss PRO’s branding, and the guests having a great time.

 

Solution.

Having worked with Creative HEAD multiple times this year - I captured the whole evening as it unfolded. With guests, and the stylists arriving - the installation spaces being opened, and the live styling sessions that took place for most of the evening. The event was wrapped with a Q&A session, and with each guests being given a gift from Babyliss PRO’s selection of salon ready tools.

Edited and delivered by midnight on the same day as the event - the content has been used across their Instagram and in articles across the website.
