Oribe educator and Parlour 3 stylist Tony Caldwell visited Samuel Cole Salon for an afternoon of creative styling. Tony has worked with some of Nashville’s finest, such as the band Rascal Flatts and singer Easton Corbin. His unique perspective and creative vision has led him to a variety of clients, from business professionals to country music legends, fashion designers and photographers.
The workshop revolved around poppiettes and pin curls. Tony wanted the stylists at Samuel Cole Salon to embrace their inner artist and creativity. “With all of the tools available to us now, we tend to forget that styling has not always been as easy”, said Caldwell. History’s hairdressing icons made their mark by being resourceful, creative, and authentic. Caldwell challenged the stylists to create a curl set without the use of a heating tool.
The stylist were only allowed to use bobby pins, torn out magazine pages, and Oribe’s Crème for Style styling cream to achieve the soft, textured, editorial look.
I thought it was refreshing. The class gave me a new outlook on how to create something simple and elegant”, said stylist, Natalie Bowers.
Tony’s passion for being a true artist is contagious. I’m accustomed to utilizing heat while styling so I really liked how he showed us that we could achieve this timeless look in such a creative, almost effortless way.”, said stylist, Dustin Fann.
