Master Stylists Carolyn Nord, Nikki Kepley, Cara Harrison and Alley Biehl traveled to Luxury Brand Partners newest venture, Miami Studios. Luxury Brand Partners is the parent company of high-end product lines; Oribe, R + Co, V76, and Smith and Cult. The stylists attended The Textured Wrap class taught by brilliant and creative stylist, Ronnie Stam who serves as Oribe’s Global Artistic Director.
The master level class consisted of sculpting the hair without the use of pins. The “Sculpted Tease” was a creative challenge and provided an extraordinary experience.
Ronnie’s early career began by spending much of his time in his fathers well respected salon in Amsterdam. Early on, Ronnie was introduced to a fellow Dutchman and hair legend Christiaan, who became his mentor.
Ronnie was Christiaan’s first assistant in Tokyo, Paris, Milan and New York over a period of more than 10 years. During that time, Ronnie opened a very successful Amsterdam salon, splitting his time between Amsterdam and Paris.
In pursuit of the next chapter in his career, Ronnie relocated to New York City where he worked with top models from Cindy Crawford to Naomi Campbell to Kate Moss. He soon became the go to for celebrities and musicians such as Carlos Santana, Rob Thomas and Duran Duran, Uma Thurman, Lauren Bacall and Lauren Hutton. Ronnie Stam spent several years creating classic rock and roll looks for the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith as well as traveling on tour as skills for their tours and videos.
After speaking with the girls after the trip, they were overly impressed with the new Miami Studios. They felt for once they were the clients. The staff was very accommodating and catered to them like they were at home. The facility was beyond their expectations. We all are looking forward to many more classes at The Miami Studios.
Ronnie was so inspirational and pushed us creatively and technically. The Miami Studios gave us a world class experience. They were amazing hosts we really got the VIP treatment and can’t wait to return for more education.” Stylist Carolyn Nord
