THE CULTURE OF HAIRDRESSING R+Co founders Howard McLaren, Thom Priano and Garren kicked off the last day of Front Row with an intimate Q&A moderated by Modern Salon's Maggie Mulhern that gave the audience a peek into the career paths of the three hair industry icons. After the in-depth sit down, Howard kicked off the demo segment, showing his unisex cutting skills with a men's cut followed by a transformational women's cut. He leaned on A Clockwork Orange and The Man Who Fell to Earth for inspiration. David Bowie was showcased again among the artistic references at the festival, in a serendipitous tribute a day after his death. Thom showed two effortless male cutsâ€”both reminiscent of past grooming workâ€”and pulled from cultural icons like Steve McQueen and The Rolling Stones. To close the show, Garren took the audience time traveling through historical cinema by recreating six classic female movie characters and showcasing a wide-ranging scope of muses. From Rita Hayworth to Rockabilly, Garren talked about the way he always pulls inpiration from these cultural archives.
