BLOG: DOM CAPEL ON THE CULT TEAM IMMERSION WEEK
Dom Capel, UK Sebastian Professional Ambassador, talks to Salon Business Online about the Sebastian Professional CULT Team Immersion Week.
“I spent the day with the Sebastian Professional CULT Team members as part of their Immersion Training Week this month. Like anything in our profession, the foundation skills and preparation is the key to success and this Immersion Training Week is the foundation to the next two years of the team’s careers. It was a day where we not only got to know each and every expectation, but where we had the opportunity to offer each other inspiration.
“All members of the CULT Team have that edge that gained them their place. My day with them was designed to reassure and inspire their confidence. The world of education, session and show hairdressing can be a daunting place and being prepared for all eventualities is essential. It is important to be well rehearsed where possible, but also to be able to think on your feet – This is being a hairdresser!
“I talked them through my journey, including both the highs and lows of my career. I hope that sharing my experiences can help to motivate them to achieve the high standards of which we believe they’re so capable and that I could offer them advice where possible.
“After sharing my experiences, we moved on to discussing how to control the development of ideas and most importantly, how to communicate them. Our initial goal was to get ourselves ready for the Look Book Shoots for AW 16/17. The team will be shooting Look Books for 10 designers at the Condé Nast College of Fashion Studios at the beginning of February.
“Each of the designers will be showcasing their work at the RAW EDGE event held at the Wella World Studio London during London Fashion Week in February. This will be the first opportunity for the CULT Team members to each head up their own backstage show team and become involved in the fashion and inspiration networking event, RAW EDGE, alongside like-minded creative talent.
“The day was an opportunity for us all to get creative. As the team’s Mentor, it’s important to me that I don’t tell them what they should be doing…I want them to discover it themselves, as then it belongs to them.”
