An exciting experience which immersed them in the world of Fashion Week, we have no doubt that memories of the show will stay with them for a long time to come!  Ready for more backstage action?

Come behind the scenes with @nickirwinhair hair at KWK by Kay Kwok S/S24 👀Transporting us to another planet, Nick used the otherworldly clothing as inspiration for the concept of hair barcoding. A futuristic styling detail which was perfect for the group of cool kids which hit the runway, a small gel strip was added in just one area of the hair. The gel ‘barcode’ was then dialled up or down to suit the model’s individual style. If you’re looking to jump on the trend, reach for The Jelly, The Coat and The Strong from Session Label by @schwarzkopfprouk to bring the look to life.Ready for more backstage action?

We headed to Wella Studios on Monday morning to get a behind-the-scenes look at the @wellaprofessionalsuki TrendVision Award competitors in action before heading over to Magazine London for the #NTVA23 final. After taking a look backstage at the show hair prep from @hob_academy, Wella Collective, @christelbarronhough with @stilsalon team and and  @jordannacobella with @cobellasalon gang, the drinks reception soon kicked off in serious style. Catch up on all the action from the night, including who took home trophies for the coveted awards and be dazzled by the artistry of the three shows across the evening.
