Jordan Robertsons' diary of an ID Artist
Jordan Robertson has been extremely busy taking part in the esteemed L'Oreal ID Artist program but we managed to get an update from him in between his busy schedule..
"The first two days of ID Artist went by so quickly , it was full of fun, creativity, inspiration and so much more. This was the first time all the 1st year ID Artists met each other and we also had the chance to meet the 2nd year ID Artists. Day one started off with Darren Oram (Educational Director) taking us through everything we will be doing during the next year 2 years and also introducing us to all the team from L'Oreal Professionel who will be working with us. Chelsea and Stuart were up next who are and will be our mentors for the next 2 years. Day 1 continued with several guest artists, Andrew Mulvenna, Anna Chapman, Kathrn Dartnell and Nathan Walker. All the guest artists went through their inspiration and interpretation of the 'AW14 IT LOOKS'. The IT LOOKS are L'Oreal Professionels trend predictions and being given the chance to view these looks before any other salon is such a privilege. The AW14 IT LOOKS will be revealed end of September so watch out! Day 2 consisted of a workshop day where we got to try out our very own interpretations, guided by the guest artists from day 1. This was an amazing opportunity working alongside such industry greats. Over the past 2 days I feel I have grown in confidence and creativity. The ID Artist program is something I have wanted for so long now and to be on it is such an achievement in my career, I personally can't wait for the next 2 years!"
