Salon owners, stylists and educators from around the United States and Canada gathered in New York City last month for the Intercoiffure Fall Atelier. Intercoiffure is one of the most influential organizations in the hairdressing industry, and their annual workshop is something we at Cole’s Salon look forward to every year!
This year was extra special, because it was our first time being together since 2019. After a weekend of learning, networking and mastering our craft, here are some major takeaways:
The Intercoiffure Cutting Council is a new go-to leader in our industry.
The Cutting Council is made up of leading industry educators—currently Stephen Moody, Stan Newton, and Josh Demarco—who select protégés to mentor on haircutting skills. During their term, they gather new looks and present the looks and techniques during an Atelier. They also oversee breakout classes at training workshops that show new trends and techniques so member salons can bring back these ideas to their respective cities. We are anxious to have Cole’s Salon artists serve as protégés under these talented educators in the next few years!
The hair trend forecast calls for short and precise.
Long, flowy mermaid hair will always be beautiful, but the new trend is short and precise. As we walked the streets of New York City in between workshops, above-the-shoulder hair was everywhere! From blunt bobs and tight crops to pixie cuts—these styles are the perfect statement cut as we enter into our public day-to-day lives. They also mark a fresh start, and are perfect for those upcoming holiday parties.
Thanks to our friends at Intercoiffure for another amazing learning event. We are honored to be a part of the Intercoiffure family!
