A day for crowning glory

The Chowdiah Memorial Hall was recently seen bursting with energy with the presence of over a thousand hair dressers from all over Bangalore.  For all those who attended the Matrix ‘Imagine all you can be’ education tour, it was day to get out of the salon, enjoy and learn.

The day-long event was hosted by Melroy Dickson, National Education Manager, along with leading hairstylist Savio John Pereira, who put up an exciting show of ‘in-fashion’ texture, colour and styling techniques.

The event started with Toby and his group putting everyone into the groove as they danced to popular Tamil songs.  The auditorium was filled with cheers and people whistling at the top of their voices. The dance performance was followed by a fashion show which saw models walking the ramp wearing designer Ali Ahmed’s creations.

But the focus was on their fashionably done hair, which was paired with great clothes to give the models a show-stopping effect.  The clothes were in combinations of red, white and black in two sets of designs, evening wear and trendy chic style. The show also had the models in a variety of hair-dos.

From the short spunky and dead straight hair to heavy curls, nothing was left out. The colours were well-blended and many were seen sporting shades of red and browns, which go well with the Indian skin tone.

They also looked gorgeous with the club wear designed for the show.  Shonal Rawat was the show-stopper of the day and wowed the audience with her hair as well as her attitude.

But the high point of the day was the on-stage hair-dos, done by Melroy and Savio, on six models, all of whom were earlier seen at the fashion show.  The session was very interactive and saw a lot of hair-dressers coming up with problems they face while dealing with clients. z

The questions were on different issues, the most common one being on hair rebonding, colouring and straightening and as to why the stylists need to take extra care during these procedures to make sure the style stays for long.  

The procedures were also done on stage to let everyone know the details.  The session had a light moment when a lady asked Melroy as to why he didn’t colour his hair though he recommended it to many people.

The finale saw another dance performance by Toby and this time, it was salsa. After this, the group performed to Shakira’s latest song Waka Waka.  The show was a hit and the audience enjoyed the entertainment as well as the educative session thoroughly.
