Step inside the House of Glaze

In partnership with Wella Professionals

Four Glazers… 15 guest colourists… One exciting new innovation…
You’re invited to the House of Glaze!

If we scroll your clients’ Instagram feeds, will we be blinded by the light? Chances are high – what so many guests want right now is that mega-watt and marvellous mane that screams ‘Grab your sunglasses honey, I am FIRE!”. It looks healthy, it looks nourished, it looks shiny and shimmery and it’s filling up ALL of the Pinterest boards. Long gone are the days of locks just looking good under a ring light. Nope, today clients want strands that shine all the freaking time, and the pressure is on for YOU to deliver them. How are you going to snag those hashtag searchers into your chair? And keep them coming back for more? 

The answer is inside the House of Glaze – five floors of glowing goodness at Electric Space in London. Carefully curated to deliver a home-away-from-home (or salon… or studio…) of perfectly polished inspiration, tools and techniques to help you give out the gleam to every client who’s craving it. But inside the House of Glaze were some very special secret ingredients…

We asked four Instagram influential colourists – our Glazers – to sparkle up a storm with a brand new colour innovation, Shinefinity, from Wella Professionals. Getting their glaze on were Jordanna Cobella, Wella Professionals craft expert; James Earnshaw, Wella Professionals digital ambassador; Daisy Goord, Wella Professionals craft expert and Zoë Irwin, UK colour trends expert for Wella Professionals. Each brought a look that was chic, sleek and unique, showcasing the blinding brilliance a little Shinefinity can bring to the table. 

 

But that was just half the story. As well as our Glazing squad, we scrolled through our social feeds to find 15 artists who are killing it with creative colour, bosses of blonde balayage or on fire with the most flawless blends. It was TOUGH! But we got there, and our hand-picked gang were invited to join us and make our extra-special House of Glaze a home of luminosity and business boosting ideas. Bringing along their own models, these artists could walk into the House of Glaze knowing that it was play time, the chance to experiment with technique, tone and transformation… while being amongst the first in the UK to trial Shinefinity.

And that’s huge news, because it is the biggest colour innovation from Wella Professionals in a decade. Yup, but Shinefinity has been worth the wait. We’re talking zero lift! Zero damage! And a quick 20 minute development time – what a clever demi! And this glaze will amaze so many of your clients – the colour-shy, the experimenters, the blondes-who-want-brilliance-between-balayages… You’ll get six weeks of glaze* that’s true to tone, a dream for colourists.

So, let’s get to the action. Our fabulous 15 were divided into teams – cool, warm, natural and creative, each one led by one of the Glazers. Gloves snapped on and brush in hand, the future looked bright. Come on inside the House of Glaze and make yourself at home…

Our final show of Sunday saw us backstage for @helenanthonyofficial with @schwarzkopfprouk and hair lead Philipp Haug of @hauglondonhaus ✨A fusion of textures, Philipp and the team delivered undone waves alongside swept back sections, held in place with some OSiS G Force gel. On models with shorter strands, OSiS Flex Wax was used to sweep the hair back for a feeling of strength, while ends were left more natural with movement. Chic, sophisticated and with a sprinkling of glamour, it made for the perfect style to accompany the strong tailoring of the clothing collection. #londonfashionweek #lfw #helenanthony #schwarzkopfprofessional #osis #sweptbackhair #sessionstylist #bts #behindthescenes #runwayhair #slickedbackhair

We had a serene start to our Sunday at @eudonchoi with @authenticbeautyconceptuk and hair lead @adamgarland__ 🤍Enhancing the natural texture of the hair through heavy use of Airy Texture Spray, Adam then used a balloon to encourage some texture in the middle of the hair sections as well as using small amounts of the Working Hairspray. The overall vibe to the hair was all about balance and flow, working to enhance the silhouette and contour before adding a low pony at the nape. Simply stunning! #londonfashionweek #lfw #eudonchoi #aw24 #sessionstylist #sessionhair #bts #behindthescenes #authenticbeautyconcept #lowponytail #naturaltexture
