editorial We are very proud of the stunningly beautiful cover image on the front of this issue of EsteticaUK. The photoshoot behind it was put together by our own EsteticaNetwork team Hair: X-presion @xpresioncreativos for Fudge Professional Colour: X-presion and Tracy Hayes for Fudge Professional Photo: Stefano Cattelan Make-up: Barbara Bonazza Styling: Manuela Mezzetti Products: Fudge Professional Coordination: PMS by Estetica for Fudge Professional under the direction of the brand’s colour guru and Global Head of Education, Tracy Hayes. The shoot was attended by Maria Rågberg from Uniklipp AS salon in Norway, and was just one part of her prize for becoming Fudge Professional’s latest Mixology Master. Maria assisted the creative team from X-presion Hair in creating the technically intricate 3D colour effect which is based on the Spanish salon group’s Disruptive X-presion technique. The objective for the new Fudge campaign was to achieve a very rich collection going from a commercial and elegant style through to a more editorial finish, playing with colours, shapes and textures. While we’re on the subject of the creation of fabulous hair, one of our main features in this issue of EsteticaUK - Cutting it on the Catwalks - focuses on the seamless backstage work that is required when creating the hair looks on the runways at the top designer events such as London Fashion Week. In our professional section, our top theme combines the hot topics of interior salon design and eco-friendly sustainability. As well as looking at the practical things you can do to save energy, we also touch on the subjects of recycling waste and choosing to use retail ‘clean, green’ products.
