The HAIRDOTCOM Art Team is a creative collective, a group of independents hairdressers, launched in 2018, unrestricted by brand association and united in a mission to collaborate, not compete; a proper art team. Now they have announced the launch of HAIRDOTCOM Education in 2021.
The people forming the HAIRDOTCOM Art Team
Built around two core values of wellbeing and collaboration, the The HAIRDOTCOM Art Team was conceived by hairdressers Ashleigh Hodges and Craig Chapman with the goal of changing the face of existing creative teams within the industry. The Art Team consists of 17 super talented individuals working across hair, beauty, styling, photography and wellbeing, with Errol Douglas MBE, one of the most respected names in the industry, as Team Ambassador. Together, they bring a diverse and eclectic range of technical skills and knowledge, allowing them to deliver the highest standards of work and break down barriers for both clients and the team alike. The HAIRDOTCOM Art Team are: Craig Chapman, Ashleigh Hodges, Errol Douglas, Carolyn Newman, Matthew Gavin, Laura Kulik, Ria Kulik, Miranda Elmer, Rebecca Wilcox, Alastair Jubbs, Casey Coleman, Niall McNulty, Vivienne Johns, Michelle Thompson, Harriet Stokes, Elizabeth Rita, Vanessa Tucker. We love them all!
HAIRDOTCOM Education is planned to launch in 2021. What will this include? Expect a series of seminars that bring together the vast skillset of the team’s members. Their upcoming courses will cover areas including: fashion and session styling, colour, texture, men’s hair, bridal hair, wigs, social media and wellbeing. Education is brand neutral, and thanks to the large and experienced team of individuals behind the scenes, can be bespoke to learners’ specific needs and levels. Exciting!
The diversity of the HAIRDOTCOM Art Team’s skillset allows them to take on a wide range of session work, including TV, celebrity clients, editorial and advertising. It also means that this new education program is truly reflective of the modern creative industry, and all of the jobs that it encompasses.
