Our favourite hair pros share their to-do list. This month it’s colourist, educator and salon owner Frazer Wallace.
Well, what is not happening this month for me? It’s a big one!
January to April have been nonstop: educating every week all over the UK; judging and inducting the L’Oréal ID artists for 2022; and filming some really sick content for L’Oréal Professionnel’s Access platform that will be out later this yea, so keep your eyes peeled.
I was then asked to be an artist showcasing the L’Oréal Professionnel Paris colour portfolio for SELF/STYLED Sundays, which I am so excited about. I will be taking part in the event on 29 May, dissecting the harmony of colour and haircutting, and showing how you can make a haircut come to life in the shortest amount of time with big impact.
This month I am also shooting my new collection. I have titled it ‘Dreamer’ – although this may change, as it usually does a million times! Shooting my collection is one of the biggest events of my year. After all, it’s what I’m put out to the industry as my vision for that year, and this one has me going in a very different direction from where I normally go, which I’m fizzing for. It’s always good to push yourself!
As well as being a haircutting educator, guest artist for L’Oréal Professionnel Paris and an ambassador for Wings scissors, I am also the director and owner of THE HAUS STUDIO – and this year has forced us to expand. We just have clients and stylists coming out of our ears! We needed to spread our wings and get some more space, so we have secured a location and are in the middle of getting it ready for my beautiful city of Dundee, with the plan to open by the first week in June.
On a personal note, I also decided to go back to school and with the help of my incredible barber Ryan Kinfolk. He’s taught me some new barbering skills that I hope to start utilising. We decided to exchange skills, so I taught him scissor work and he taught me how to work the clippers, foiler and an array of tips on the perfect skin fade which I’m super grateful to him for.
The rest of the year is so busy with educating and travelling with my course for L’Oréal Professionnel, “HONEST EDUCATION”, which is all about focusing people to help them become the best stylist they can be. The day centres on haircutting, and how to get that perfect cut in a real salon time.
