Colour Project Team Talk Concepts With Paul Denison
The Fellowship’s Colour Project Team had a fantastic first mentoring workshop, with colour mastermind Paul Denison from Ken Picton Salon. The team headed to the beautiful streets of Cardiff Bay to get an insight into Paul’s exciting career and to get to grips with how to turn a concept into reality.
Paul began by talking the team through how he builds on a concept; from finding his initial inspiration, to translating it into hair and creating the final look.
“The brief for the day was the ‘Dark Side’,” explains Paul, “I asked the team to each create a mood board based on this, and I presented two models to demonstrate my interpretation. It’s very interesting to see how each individual interprets a brief and whilst the team were presenting, I made sure to offer guidance on how to create a beautiful and streamlined mood board that best reveals your own understanding of an idea or concept.”
Paul’s two models both had exactly the same haircut, however one represented light and the other dark, demonstrating how each can completely change the outcome and how effective subtle colour placement can be. He also incorporated interesting sectioning patterns into the looks, inspired by Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ album cover, bringing his workshop and the ‘Dark Side’ concept full circle.
Patterns and Colours
The team finished the day by working on their own creative sectioning patterns and colours on block heads, with Paul on-hand to provide guidance and his best tips and tricks.
“Paul was so fantastic,” says team member Sara Williams from Melissa Timperley Salons, “He really simplified how to create a mood board by not going crazy with millions of pictures. I left feeling inspired and ready for the next instalment!”
