THE SIGNATURE SALON

Our Work | Development

Discover your Signature Look!

Our stylists and estheticians like to take “field trips” too. Training opportunities have taken our team all around the world, to learn new techniques, and stay on top of trends. (And meet some really cool and often famous people along the way.) Sometimes we don’t have to venture much further than our own beautiful city to participate in important events and education.  Whether in our community or somewhere else on the globe, we enjoy being able to broaden our experiences by participating in educational, developmental and community events.

Italian Style Framesi and Italian Style Energy featured their Fall/Winter 2012-13 collections, entitled Lovely Black and High Vision.

UK Colorzoom 2012 ~ London, England

In October 2012, Bailey, Barb, Hilary and Samm flew to London, England and attended Salon International (UKs largest Beauty-Industry Trade Show) and Colorzoom Competition in London, England. Hairstylists from over 40 countries competed for first place in their respective categories: Partner, Creative, and New Talent. Winners were: Partner~Germany, New Talent~Taiwan, Creative~Taiwan. Our colleagues were the best of the best, the top of their game; from all over the world we witnessed overwhelming and awe-inspiring talent!!

The tradeshow featured classes and products from around the world. Saw presentations from Goldwell, KMS, Moroccan Oil, WHAL, to name a few. The Colorzoom fashion show launched their new Collection Beautify ~ Excerpt from the Beautify Look Book, “Fashion and lifestyle are allowed to do what they do best, which is to make life more beautiful… Colors, bright materials and fabrics. Unconventional styles that are bursting with color… A creative movement which started in small urban communities.”

We were treated to a tour of London. We travelled by boat on the Thames with Goldwell Canada & America to tour the Tower of London, and famous Crown Jewels. We travelled by bus trip to tour Westminster Parliament Buildings, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, London Eye, St. Paul’s Cathedral, and Buckingham Palace.

The final event and farewell party was held at the famous Madame Tussauds-London for all guests from North America, Australia and New Zealand…would it surprise you that the Newfoundlanders were the last off the dance floor?!

Fantasy Hair Show
3rd Place ~ The Signature Salon

On Sunday August 5, 2012, as a collected group of hair and beauty professionals, we honoured and remembered a colleague and friend, Juan Perez, at this year’s Goldwell Fantasy Hair Show. This year’s show was inspired by FasciNATURE, Goldwell’s Color Zoom Trend for 2012; it reflects the brilliant colors and endless shapes found throughout nature. Our entry was inspired by the beautiful Mountain Alcon Butterfly. She enslaves her prey through manipulation of song, in turn becoming their parasitic queen. Sometimes even in nature the most beautiful things can be deadly. We are thrilled to have been recognized with the achievement of a third place standing among our friends in the industry!
