LAFW Backstage Experience


Luxelab is all about opportunity and education and this year at LAFW, they combined the two by offering a LAFW Backstage Experience to outside stylists through their Luxelab Academy class series. 

Stylists from other salons in different parts of California got to join the Luxelab Official LAFW Hair Team in all the behind the scenes action that makes up this exciting event, including extravagant opening galas, walking the red carpet, press photos and wrap parties at some of LA’s favorite hotspots. 

Their experience started with a class room set up in the industrial backstage space where they got to learn many of the foundational techniques that are needed in most editorial environments, including slick ponytails, braids galore, top knots and big expanded waves. This included plenty of hands on time to perfect these techniques while working with show lead hairstylists Lauren Sill and Jen Beckerman. who have multiple Fashion Week stints under their belts. 

On the 2nd day the attendees got to put everything they learned into practise while working on the George Styler and Dena Burton shows. Besides the craziness and exhaustion that comes with these shows, the highlights are always the adrenaline.the teamwork, Hair, Makeup and Fashion all colliding together in one melting pot of creative energy. 

This exciting experience is available again in September for LAFW SS17. Visit academy classes for more info.
