Global hair colour, care and styling brand, Wella Professionals has unveiled its international programme for hairdressers — Wella Passionistas — for the first time in India. The nation’s most renowned hair artists such as Adhuna Bhabani, Natasha Naegamvala, and others were present for the interactive digital event, where Wella Professionals’ Global Creative artist Alexis Ferrer hosted an hour-long masterclass, sharing his expert tips and styles. The event was also graced by key beauty and trade media publications.
Alexis Ferrer, who is among the top ten hairstylists in the world, hails from Barcelona and has worked over 1,200 catwalks globally. He has been working with Wella over the past 20 years and has been a part of the Global Creative Artists team since 2012. During the event, Alexis was live from Spain along with two other Wella Global Artists in conversation with Nitin Manchanda – Creative Director, Wella Professionals, addressing the Passionistas. He curated on-trend looks especially for the Passionistas and was seen giving three models a fashionable haircut, colour and styling experience. The international models were then seen flaunting their finished looks on the streets of Spain while being filmed by the Wella Global team.
Wella Passionistas is a national platform for emerging talent across India. It aims to bring together Wella’s strength of innovation and the magic of the hairdressers’ creativity and experience to serve as a catalyst for change.
