On Monday I had the privilege of being invited to the set of the Stevie English Australian Hair Fashion Awards shoot at their Glebe salon. The AHFA’s are held annually and celebrate Australia’s talent in the fields of hairdressing and make-up artistry and with entries  closing on 6th November there was no time to lose!
Being designed with the environment in mind Steve’s salon epitomizes eco street style from its funky décor and visionary staff through to the choice in high performance yet thoroughly green product ranges – O&M and Kevin Murphy. So it was that on a wet and chilly spring morning the tongues, defusers and bobby pins came out.
Game on!

The salons art director Verity ran the shoot making sure that her styles were impeccable and that the models were not bothered by us “other bodies” on set. With what seemed like tens of styles to create, make-up to check and lighting to fix I began to think that there must be two of her. Steve, having done his bit the night before and first thing this morning (as chief colourist) was having fun feeding the troops and recording proceedings for his blog. Grey was chosen as the colour theme – a shade not usually renowned for its beauty but transformed by the addition of some strategically placed Green, Violet, Blue and Black shading.
So, let’s meet some more of the team.
Georgie, Zoe, Naomi and Ruby were there other stylists on set and were carefully following Verity’s direction to transform the grey bobs into something sexy, dramatic and edgy. All are regular stylists at the salon and are well known for their attention to detail and skill.
