My Work & Thoughts
Tuesday May 7th 2019
I was invited to present at INTERCOIFFURE Australia one of the oldest hairdressing establishments in the world. ICD as its known was founded in 1925 in Germany by hairdressers from Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Denmark and England. In 1930, France created its own Section . After the second world war, the famous hair designer GUILLAUME took the destiny of Intercoiffure in his hands. His successors at the head of the Association were John Pfeil, Alexandre de Paris and Maurice Franck.
Since the World Congress in Berlin in September 2000, the presidency has been entrusted to Klaus Peter Ochs who clearly defined his objectives:
Develop the number of members yet preserving the philosophy of Intercoiffure, obtain 3000 members in 50 countries
Intensify, under the banner of the "Foundation Guillaume", the promotion and the development of the activities of the Juniors of Intercoiffure
Re-enforce the links of collaboration and friendship with the hair industry
Take on social responsibility.
Intercoiffure, an international association standing for prestige and excellence, unites hairdressers of high standard being linked by both the love for their craft and the respect for moral values.
The 80 years of Intercoiffure tradition and its radiance worldwide testify to this in a striking manner.
It was an honour to demonstrate my craft in front of such an enthusiastic group of Hairdressers..
Mens Grooming Products Promotional Shoot, MARCH 2019
When I was growing up as a young boy in the 70s I was influenced by the fashion and trends of the time, the music the cars and all that made the 70s such a great era, so when I had the opertunity to direct a Promotional shoot for a Mens Grooming Range called Mane Man I jumped at the idea.
I tried to recreate the feeling of those times gone by, even though hair in the 70s was not worn so much slicked back we still had the odd musical band that kept the vibe going, todays feel of retro cool is seen as a little radical with the ever more popular tattoos but men have come a long way since the 70s as far as personal grooming is concerned, ManeMan has 26 products and growing, from pomades to body washes, they maintain the retro style with great smells and workability.

Queens birthday weekend for hairdressers is Hair Expo time, this year held at the Melbourne Convention Centre, with an approx. 10,000 hairdressers attending from all over Australia, Exhibitors range from small to very large companies all displaying the latest products and ideas to our wonderful industry.
Stage presentations from some of Australia leading hairdressers are held throughout the 3 days, I was honoured to present on Sunday and Monday for a small company called AMARGAN by RevOILution from the U.K.
I always enjoy getting up on stage its fun and the ability to show case my work is always a privilege.
My first stage presentation was back in 1981 when I was just an apprentice, this gave me a great foundation and I've created my own style of presentation which I believe is unique and fun to watch, its all about entertaining the audience and creating a stand out look that people get inspired from, this year was no exception...Stage work is an all out creative affair, I LOVE IT
