In the Chair with Alessandro Magrin
After Angel’s recent #SalonSession education trip to Rome, we caught up with Italian hairdressing extraordinaire Alessandro Magrin about Cloud Nine products and what gets his creativity flowing…
1. Tell us about your favourite Cloud Nine product
I like all the Cloud Nine Products! I get to use them all every day, but if I had to choose one to be my favourite it would be the Original Wand. The wand is great for helping me to create many different styles. I use its innovative technology to prepare hair before styling. It helps me achieve a range of fantastic finishes.
2. How did your team find Angel’s training?
Angel motivated my team to think creatively. The training sparked new style ideas for our clients and of course, when Angel explained about the products, my stylists learned a lot about how to get the most out of our Cloud Nine products. We didn’t know how many great looks we could create!
3. Who has your favourite celeb hair?
Madonna, when she had her lovely long blonde hair. She wears waves really well, it frames her face beautifully. I like Scarlet Johansson’s hair too - when she had a short undercut.
4. What inspires your work?
I love geometric architecture and design. I visit the Tate gallery in London and Expo in Milan for inspiration. My daily life encourages my work too. Watching people in the streets, in East London or Kreuzberg in Berlin usually gets my creativity going! The British Hairdressing Awards are always a good source of inspiration too.
5. What was your favourite look from the training?
The ‘fauxhawk’. It’s such a fresh and sophisticated look.
6. Which Cloud Nine products did you use to create this look?
The Original Iron, Original Wand and The O. The products were used to create volume in the roots and lengths; an essential step when creating the ‘fauxhawk’.
