Award-winning hairdresser Ken Picton and colourist Paul Dennison travelled to Barcelona, Chile and Peru for L’Oreal Professionnel this month to teach inspirational looks and techniques to hundreds of the countries’ leading hairdressers.
Salon owner Ken, who celebrated 25 years in business this year, said, “We had a fairly grueling schedule of seminars and shows interspersed with model castings and finishing in Peru with a 12-model show for 600 people. The reception was incredible, they mobbed us for photographs and made us feel like rock stars!”
Ken and Paul have been crowned British Colourist of the Year and Ken is the only Welshman to have won Wales & South West Hairdresser of the Year 3 times of the year, attaining Hall of Fame status. The salon holds numerous other awards including Salon of the Year, Image of the Year, and Cardiff Life’s Hair Salon of the Year. They are much in demand by the likes of L’Oreal Professionnel, Kerastase and ghd to appear in front of huge audiences around the world and their next destination is India in a couple of weeks.
Well-known clients of the salon include Cardiff City football players, Welsh rugby players, Cardiff Devils Ice Hockey team members and actors and actresses from the likes of Gavin & Stacey, Dr Who and more.
