Electric - Session Styling with Mark Woolley

Session Inspirations Workshop

Last month I had the honour of meeting Mark Woolley from Electric Hair, London. As soon as I heard that Mark would be teaching a session styling workshop in bonnie Scotland, I booked my place!
Electric have been on the 'hair scene' for many years but it is through social media, in particular Instagram, that I have really gotten to see how the team work and get a feel for their work. I leapt at the chance to see first hand how Mark creates his signature British Style Hair.

From the beginning Mark was friendly, putting everyone at ease by sharing how he got started in session styling. He then worked on a couple of models demonstrating the importance of good foundation work and how this aids progression through several styles on one model.

In the afternoon, we worked on dolly heads, setting then dressing out to achieve different looks. Mark offered advice, encouragement, and critique throughout the afternoon as well as giving insight into how Electric plan photoshoots.

Overall the day was extremely enjoyable, laid back, and best of all, informative! I left feeling inspired to go create and share ... on instagram of course!! ;)
