To finish off their fabulous year, the Schwarzkopf Professional’s 2018 Young Artistic Team enjoyed one last day working as a team  alongside award-winning hairdressers Gary Hooker & Michael Young of Hooker & Young.

The brief for the shoot was ‘District 6’. “The vibe for this shoot is very eclectic cool,”  explained Michael. “Each model represents a girl from a different district meaning they are all individual and had their own style. We shot the models both inside and outside on location to reflect the theme of the shoot.” The theme for the collection was decided during a planning day in preparation for the shoot with Gary and Michael, where the team created mood boards of looks and styles they liked giving them all a clear vision of how they wanted to style their models.

The team felt so privileged and inspired to be working so closely with Michael and Gary – UK hair icons and artistic creatives of the very highest calibre. Hannah McGrath from 77 The Hill said: “Gary and Michael are such lovely people, not only can you have a laugh with them but they but have an amazing eye and such great talent. I learnt so much from them, particularly to enjoy everything you do, never stress and to always believe in yourself. The best part of the shoot for me was being able to take the models out onto the real streets of London and shoot out there as well as in the studio.” 

It’s been a fantastic year for the 2018 Young Artistic Team, a team full of passion and enthusiasm and with Hooker & Young on hand to help channel this creativity into a final shoot means some incredible looks were captured.
