Runway Ready Success

We are over the moon to hear that UNITE‘s first Runway Ready UK course was a huge success. UNITE’s Creative Director, Gary Baker educated a group of hairdressers who had travelled from across the country to Lacey’s Distribution in Reading.

Following the success of the first Runway Ready programme; UNITE and Lacey’s Distribution are excited to collaborate once again as they reveal the next dates for the two-day course. If you’re interested in learning more about what it takes to work backstage at fashion week, then we think you’re going to need to pencil this in…

Gary is back on UK soil to educate the next team of hairdressers on 1st & 2nd of August. The perfect course for an introduction on working backstage and knowing if it’s for you. 

If your looking to see what working backstage at fashion week is all about then runway ready is a must. Gary and the team will give you an in depth and fun experience that will teach you much more than you would expect,” says Allan Mckenchnie – Rutherford’s hair.

Gary  Baker says, “We had an amazing response to this course considering what everyone in the trade has been through over the past two years.  The enthusiasm and desire was from all the attendees was more infectious than Covid!”

That’s not all

As the first group of Runway Ready graduates left wanting more, UNITE & Lacey’s have delivered. The Advanced Runway Ready course will be taking place on 4th & 5th August. This is only for those who have completed the first Runway Ready course; as it builds on what you would have already learnt. The two days will be intensive and your will learn more complex hair skills – think haute couture
