Domenico in the bag scissors

Scissors 

“My scissors case is always with me – 5”, 6.5”, thinning scissors and razor. Working on fashion shows can be very unpredictable and most of the time we are facing last minute changes. The easiest way to step out from the box is to be prepared.”

L’Oréal Professionnel Paris TECNI.ART Pli 

“This product is a life saver! It’s always a great ally when it comes to hair preparation. It gives texture and volume to thin and inconsistent hair. It’s a great foundation to start with, and it’s never too sticky or too crispy. This product is key when you want to layer different products in one look.”

L’Oréal Professionnel Paris TECNI.ART Liss Control 

“This is my go-to product when working on hair with more texture. It is incredible when I need to smooth curly and frizzy hair but still protect the hair from the heat.”

Up-do box 

“This box contains every single type of pin, grip, mini elastic, hook band, and clip, in every colour and size I might need.”   

domenico in the bag natural bristle brush

Neville Hair & Beauty’s Natural Bristle Wood Brush 

“At Neville’s we designed these amazing brushes, with natural materials, which are not heat conductors. They are very respectful when it comes to the health of the hair, but still perform incredibly. The natural bristles can close every single cuticle of the hair, giving an extra shiny finish.” 

domenico in the bag hair extensions

Hair extensions 

“If I’m working on set or backstage at a show, I always pack some hair extensions in different colours as you never know when you will need them – I have all bases covered with clip in extensions, or temporary bond extensions. When it comes to a catwalk show, or a photo shoot, length and volume are never enough!” 

Domenico in the bag

BaByliss PRO Curling Iron 

“This is a great tool, and a must-have in my kit bag! You can create different types of movement, effortlessly, and it is especially effective when the time is very limited during a photoshoot or backstage.”

A frequent collaborator for the NOKI runway shows, this season @nickirwinhair turned the typical hairdressing process on its head, delivering a deconstructed salon experience that hair pros across the globe can relate to. From the layering of foils to half-finished cuts, styling clips and dripping colour, the variety of looks to hit the runway truly took the art of hairdressing to new heights. As well as Nick’s core team, members of the @schwarzkopfprouk 2023 @skpyat team were on hand to get the models runway ready. 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?
