One of Harrogate’s leading hair and lifestyle salons has launched its own art team to develop original styling. The aim is to work closely with organisations and business to help them create their individual look.

The team from Baroque will style hair for photo shoots, fashion shows, events including major awards and gala evenings when presentation takes on extra importance.

Many of the ideas gained from their new work will also be introduced into Baroque salons in Kings Road, Harrogate and in North Road, Ripon. ‘We want to really focus on creativity and inspiration to push out new concepts of hairdressing to clients and other stylists,’ said Tom O’Brien co-founder of Baroque

‘We felt the time had come when we really wanted to work in a similar way to the fashion houses where we would be given a brief to come up with something new and exciting,’ added Louise Smith, style director at Baroque.

Members of the art team are stylists at Baroque and had to go through a rigorous vetting procedure to win a place. Each of the team was asked to come up with an original idea, explain its inspiration and then create the style on a model. “It was a nerve wracking but wonderful challenge, it’s a fantastic way to express yourself creatively with no limitations,’ said art team member Robert Worrell, a stylist at Baroque Ripon.

‘Not everything we do is too weird and wonderful which, for most people, would be un-wearable. We can create something beautiful and commercial too, it’s just all about giving people some new ideas to work with,’ added team member Lauren Davey, style director at Baroque, Harrogate. ‘And as every hairdresser knows, being allowed to be creative on a daily basis keeps our passion and interest alive. We can’t wait to show what we can do,’

The team is already working on a global competition photo shoot along with preparing ideas for a fashion catwalk evening with car company Audi. w
