Editorial Stylist, Alejandro Jimenez brought his talents to Samuel Cole Salon to showcase the “haircut” that works on everyone. The long bob (LOB) is a versatile cut because it is long enough to be pulled into a ponytail or chignon. There is still enough length to create soft updo’s. This class featured advanced straight razor techniques which Jimenez encourage the stylists to use to create an unstructured and textured cut rooted in a classic shape.
Alejandro has worked NY, Paris and London Fashion Weeks, as well as Victoria Secret Fashion Shows. He has also styled countless celebrities and worked on various editorial and commercial shoots including Vogue, Elle, W and Ferria campaign for L’Oreal. Alejandro has spent years training and collaborating with some of the best hairdressers in the world including Garren, Max Pinnell, Italo Gregorio, Ward and Laurent Philipon. Most recently, Alejandro worked as International Educator for Bumble and bumble and has trained thousands of hairdressers around the world.
It was very inspiring to watch and learn different ways to use a straight razor. I can be intimidating to use a tool that can create so many different looks. It really helped us to become more comfortable using such a versatile tool!” said Stylist Libby Bink
