It’s that time of year when schools are out and leavers get to finally follower their passions. This means a whole new flock of hair and beauty professionals will begin their careers in colleges or as apprentices. With this in mind, this issue we’re focusing on education, in particular on the roles and responsibilities everyone has in education. This is the most crucial part of any professional’s career, where they become as much a reflection of their mentors as they are of their own hard work.  

Getting ready for summer means two things; holidays and festivals. We’ve asked some expert for their top tips for getting ready for the sun, as well as the very best styles sure to take over the summer. Not forgetting nail trends you’ll be sure to see coming in and out of your salons.  

Sustainability is a hot button topic among the next generation, and it would be foolish not to highlight some of the amazing salons already incorporating sustainability and eco-friendly attitudes into their ethos.  

We also spoke to Winnie Awa, the founder of Antidote Street to ask her about the new Antidote Street Salon Manifestoa group of salons dedicated to changing consumer perceptions of afro hairdressers. Female hair loss isn’t something too commonly talked about, SalonNV caught up with Dr Sharon Wong about the leading causes.   

In the Chair this month we’ve got the amazing makeup artist, Ingrid Peregrina. Ingrid has built a successful career which has seen her shooting with the Fellowship’s 2018 FAME Team, as well as working at Salon International, the Wella Trend Vision,  ProHairLive Manchester and even Perth (AUS) Fashion Week!  

Not just this but we’ve got a whole issue packed with the usual features, products and showcase images you’ve come to expect from SalonNV
