A few weeks ago Gary Taylor, who was awarded the British North West Hairdresser of the year 2015, came into the salon to do a men's cutting course. We had our colleagues from Paul Kemp Hairdressing join us for the training session too.

I asked Jakata senior stylist Laura Hall to put together a news feature about the day…

Essential Looks Competition

A couple of weeks ago we had our 3rd in-salon ‘Essential Looks’ competition - stylists from the Jakata and PK teams paired up to create a look inspired by the latest Schwarzkopf collections. In the previous competitions the stylists carried out the looks on training heads. We thought we’d mix it up a bit this time and have members of the public as models for the teams!

After a morning session running through the looks with Steve Ward (Schwarzkopf educator) the stylists paired off into 5 teams and came up with a look taking influence from the latest collections - plus choosing something that would suit their models lifestyle.

Elite Symposium Elite Symposium

Schwarzkopf Professional Elite Symposium

Hairdressers always love the opportunity to meet up with like minded people to share ideas and see what’s happening in the industry as a whole. There are usually a few events each year put on by the major product suppliers (Tigi, Schwarzkopf GHD) geared at salons coming together to keep up to date with the latest movements in the hairdressing industry.

When we were told about the Schwarzkopf Professional Elite Symposium - a day of seminars, competitions, product launches, black tie(ish) meal and a night club - we knew we had to get as many of the team going for inspiration and education (plus we always love a good party session!). We ran an incentive in the salon and 10 of the guys from across both salons won tickets to join the 300+ hairdressers invited to the event.

Matt Lane was one of the stylists from JAKATA who attended and I asked him to write an article about his experience…

Pantone Colors of the Year

Pantone & Colour Trends

Here at Jakata we like to keep up to date with the latest trends, and when it comes to colour we often look outside of the fashion and hair world for inspiration. A key player in the world of colour in design is ‘Pantone’ who have recently released their latest ‘Color of the Year’.

Pantone was founded in 1963 and is one of the first colour matching systems that most design company's whether it be graphic design, clothing, cosmetics, florists and printers use as a colour matching standard, plus look to for inspiration. They are the definitive authority on colour.

What better place to look for new trends!

Colour Masters

Colour Masters

Last year was a big movement in our education department. Our focus was on putting our stylist through their paces. We have always had a strong focus on eduction and developing our team’s skill sets, but to further this we put all of our senior team members through a colour master class.

The Schwarzkopf Professional Colour Master Class represents a gold standard in colour education with an innovative delivery method. The learning units are dedicated to all aspects of colour, from the philosophy of colour, interpretation, selection and application. The focus of this course is not only on theory of colour but also a practical hands-on experience.

Smooth to Frizzy

What does winter do to your hair?

As we’re moving into winter and the weather is getting colder and damper, many of us notice significant changes in the condition and texture of our hair. Here at Jakata we have come up with some easy tips for you to follow to keep your hair looking bouncy and static free this Christmas.

When it’s cold outside we tend to pump our heating up to full blast. This dramatic change from cold to hot ensures our hair gets put through its paces! Cold air can cause the cuticle layer of the hair to lift, and going into a warm, dry interior environment then draws the moisture out of the hair, leaving it dry and frizzy. This also provides the perfect conditions for static, which we all know makes for unruly hair! Wind can also cause hair issues of its own. Exposure to strong winds can cause the hair to tangle. The wind blows the hairs against each other which roughens the cuticle causing the hairs to catch on one another.

Fibreplex

Love colour but hate the damage?

Everyone loves to change their colour from time to time (or for some people every month!) As hairdressers we love the challenge of turning black hair blonde or blonde hair red, but with every colour change there is damage caused by the tint or bleach. A revolutionary new product by Schwarzkopf has just been launched and it is proven to reduce damage by 94%!

FibrePlex is Schwarzkopf’s first bond enforcing system to keep our silky, beautiful locks in amazing condition even with the most extreme colour changes. Thanks to the latest innovations in hair care we can all protect our hair from the damaging effect of tint and bleach.

At JAKATA we are now offering all of our colour clients this exclusive, in-salon, colour service booster as an add-on.

The Winners

Stylists Battle it out in Essential Looks Competition

Every season Schwarzkopf launch their Essential Looks collections, a set of styles influenced by future hair/fashion trends. Every time the new collections are launched we have an in—salon workshop run by a Schwarzkopf educator to keep everyone up to date with the latest looks.

This time we thought we’d mix it up a bit and have an in-house competition. We teamed up with Paul Kemp Hairdressing and paired everyone off. Each pair of stylists had to create their own interpretation of a colour & cut from the latest Essential Looks collections on a training head.

Jakata stylist Jimmy Sharpe was lucky enough to get an invite to style hair at London Fashion Week for Jasper Garvida’s Ethologie. He was working alongside the Easton Regal hair team at creating a specific look on the models for the catwalk presentation.

Happy New Year

Happy New Year

Wishing everyone a very happy New Year from the entire team here at Jakata. We hope you all had a great Christmas and saw the New Year in in style!

Things are slowly getting back to normal here in the salon after a hectic month! It won't be normal for long though as we'll soon all be heading off to a lodge in Llangollen for a week for our team party!

The salon will be closed from Tuesday 13th January and we re-open on Saturday 17th January. If you need to book an appointment during this time then calls will still be taken - the phone is being diverted to our sister salon Paul Kemp Hairdressing.

We all look forward to seeing you throughout 2015!

Jimmy with the LEAP team

Jimmy Picked to join Schwarzkopf L.E.A.P team

The Jakata team is always striving to be at the top of our game. Regular competitions, both internal and external, plus photoshoots and training day's help each team member develop their skills to the highest level. These skills obviously have an impact on the level of work we produce day-to-day in the salon, ensuring everyone that comes in goes out with a modern, fashionable style.

Over the years we've picked up numerous awards including categories within the prestigious L'oreal Colour Trophy and Redken NYC Awards. We've also had team members chosen to join larger artistic teams.

A few years ago Jimmy Sharpe was picked to spend a year on the Schwarzkopf Young Artistic team. He had to go through a gruelling selection process to win the place. From the experience he learned a multitude of new skills, from new hair techniques to stage presentation skills. Jimmy has used his knowledge to train and inspire the whole Jakata team.

New Member of the Jakata Family

We'd like to introduce you to the newest member of the Jakata family - Jaxson Welsby. Born on Monday 10th march at 19.50 and weighing in at 6 lb 2 1/2. Proud mum, Jakata stylist Vikki Rowland couldn't be happier.

The team (and her clients) are missing Vikki, but we're all chuffed that she can spend some valuable time with Jaxson over the next few months.

I'm sure she'll be dropping into the salon pretty frequently so you might get to meet him soon!
