In my kitbag

by | 12 Feb 2018

As a Goldwell UK guest artist and owner of the award-winning Neil Barton Hairdressing in Edinburgh, Neil is a busy guy. He’s won countless awards (including the first-ever UK winner of the Goldwell Color Zoom trophy in 2010) and divides his time between his salon in Scotland and travelling the world on behalf of Goldwell (he’s currently enjoying a stint in Australia), sharing his knowledge, skills and passion with other like-minded hairdressers.

We rummage around in Neil’s kitbag to discover what his absolute essentials are…

My kit bag includes:

“I always carry around KMS MOISTREPAIR Revival Creme in my kit bag. It’s a leave-in conditioner that is weightless on the hair and I use it frequently to prep hair before styling and cutting.

Another kitbag favourite of mine would have to be KMS ADDVOLUME Styling Foam, which gives hair up to 70 per cent more volume and provides heat protection, so it is perfect for those clients looking for the singer Cheryl bouncy blow-dry look.

Another of my favourite tools that you will find in my kitbag is the Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer. It’s amazing at reducing frizz and giving your clients gorgeous, smooth, shiny hair in no time at all.”
