Paul Falltrick, award-winning hair expert and Matrix Global Design Team Member:
To consistently have enough knowledge to share, keep learning yourself. Make a commitment to continue growing and developing so that you’ll have a pool of both new and old experiences to refer to.”

Angelo SeminaraAngelo Seminara, Artistic Director at Davines:
“What motivates me is simply my addiction to general beauty and my main source of inspiration, is and will always be, Mother Nature”.

 

 

Lino HeadshotLino Carbosiero MBE MCSRH, hairdresser to our priminister David Cameron and an ardent member of the Hair Council:
“I’ve seen so many talented people drop off because they didn’t get the training. If you don’t train people to be as good as yourself or better, you’re not going to make any more money because you’re doing all the work and you’ve only got one pair of hands! It’s our duty as senior hairdressers that if someone helps you, they deserve the right to be taught something in return. It’s so important and ultimately a reflection of you.”
Check out some of Lino’s incredible work…
