Just got back from my first ever Bumble event, a pop up workshop with Nico and Corinna. A couple people from all the nearby Bumble salons were invited, they held it in a rented out studio space. It was very cool, laid back, educational, and cool watching some great stylists do some great hair!
There were a lot of people there, I of course only took pictures before everyone showed up and didn’t take any pictures while I was doing stuff.
We watched a number of demos, which were actually pretty cool because they did looks that were actually on fashion week runways.
Then we all got sent off to the session styling area and told to think of a reference and make a look on our model – my original idea was a dreadlocked Sumo inspired hairdo…But that was too much work so I started twisting and backcombing the hair for some interesting texture instead. I ran into a time crunch and finished the top of the head and pinned a few things back at the 5 minute mark, and it looked interesting – very character hair, but I could see ways for it to have been better.
Learned that you have to think realistically when you think of what you’re going to do with hair, don’t overpromise on a time budget.
It was overall a relaxed and groovy environment, and I of course didn’t bring some things, we blew fuses, all that stuff happened. I think I’m going to get a bag to use as a session bag.
