Goldwell KMS MBE Congress Report Back


The Goldwell KMS MBE Congress was held on Sunday 3 June at Emperors Palace, Jhb. This sold-out event combined cutting-edge business information with fantastic hairdressing, including Goldwell's incredible new Pure Pigments colour launch.

The day kicked off with an in-depth presentation on this from marketing expert Ursula Brett which was a huge hit with the audience. This was followed by lunch, and the chance to interact with the Goldwell KMS brands on display.

After lunch, and some fantastic live music, it was time for hairdressing inspiration with Goldwell educator Craig Hopkins as the lively MC for the day.

First up was the KMS show, featuring Martin Milne from Gorgeous, Centurion, and Navnit Beharie from Me Myself and I, Edenvale. Fabulous cutting techniques and red-carpet styling saw curls and bold texture ruling the day.

This was followed by a collection from India Choo and Bernadine Malan from DNA Salon, Bedfordview, featuring edgy, creative styles and on-trend colours that incorporated the new Goldwell Pure Pigments.

Shawn Bubb and Daniella Blignaut from Cutting Edge in Klerksdorp took the next slot with Best Friends collection, which featured Elumen colour together with Pure Pigments in their streetwise, bright, consumer-friendly looks.

This was followed by Salome de Wet's visionary collection, including on-stage styling, which combined futuristic fashion with avant-garde. Salome is from the Bang Bang Collective, Cape Town.

The final stage show was Guy Kleinhaus from Guy's Chop Shop, Stellenbosch. This cutting superstar did two cuts on models with hair coloured using Pure Pigments for an incredible shimmering effect. Guy's demo was followed by a finale showing Pure Pigments colours on models.

This was an awesome event, with super-talented stage stars and a fast paced and entertaining programme. Thanks to Goldwell KMS for putting it together. To see more, have a look through our Photo Files below.
