Salon Masterclass 2023: Cutting-Edge Technique with Mahogany

Published 18th Oct 2023 by Chloe Woodland

Mahogany took to the stage to present their latest collection, "Blitz Kids". The audience was left inspired as the Mahogany team demonstrated their unique and cutting-edge techniques within their latest collection, drawing inspiration from the iconic Blitz Club era in London.

The event kicked off in style with Mahogany models donned in sequins, showcasing their signature short and sharp haircuts that are synonymous with the brand.

Showcasing their brand-new collection, "Blitz Kids," Mahogany models transported the audience back to the vibrant and creative atmosphere of the Blitz Club. The collection is a celebration of the late 70s and early 80s post-punk scene, inspired by icons including the legendary Debbie Harry. Mahogany's team of experts, including Colin Greany, Neil Atkinson, Josh Carron, Tara Hunter, and Oliver Prestage, showcased their incredible talents through live haircut demonstrations on stage.

Colin demonstrated a round layering technique, creating a head-hugging undercut with a seamless disconnection, while Josh showcased prelightened metallic off silver blonde with Blondie-esque layering and innovative combinations of bright yellow and dark black.

Tara presented a unique technique with inky purple and mauve transitioning into blue, creating a striking and unique look, while Neil's approach was to create a disconnected look that balanced technical precision with an element of movement, ensuring suitability for the client.

Antony emphasised the importance of blending commercial success with creative success, allowing stylists to use these techniques in the salon, whether working on bobs or long hair.

The Mahogany Masterclass concluded with a grand finale featuring trademark Mahogany crops and bobs, showcasing the brand's commitment to its classic training foundation. The colour palette for the collection ranged from icy blonde and shimmering metallic pink to steel grey and inky black outlines, creating a diverse and stunning visual impact.

Anthony shared insights into the inspiration behind the collection, emphasising the creative energy of the late 70s and early 80s. The team's vision came full circle, celebrating individuality and self-expression, much like the iconic Blitz Club.

Mahogany, a brand that teaches seven classic haircuts as part of its foundational training, continues to push the boundaries of creativity, providing a unique blend of technical precision and artistic expression. The event concluded with ten stunning models taking to the stage, bringing the post-punk era into the modern age.
