Sassoon legend Christopher Brooker made a rare return to the hairdressing stage on Sunday (November 26), with a one-day workshop in creative skills and business thinking, held at the Stannard & Singsby salon in Kensington.

The creator of the iconic Firefly, Brush and Thatch demonstrated cutting techniques to an audience of enthralled stylists – including 2017 It List winners Mike O’Gorman, Casey Colman and Darcie Harvey – and also found time to sign a pair of scissors, donated by Joewell in aid of the charity ACT.

“It was the most wonderful day,” said Dale Hollinshead of Birmingham salon Hazel & Haydn, who won a place at the workshop after joining the new 
Creative HEAD Club. “Christopher is such a passionate man.”
