Hair industry innovator and Sine-stylists inspirational mentor, Howard McLaren returned to Chicago with the R+Co education team for the R+Co Hair Show this June. R+Co is a collective of some of the most knowledgeable, forward-thinking hair innovators in the business. It is the brand that starlets and models are clamoring for and that we use in our salons faithfully. R and Co products evoke a sense of creativity and modern wearability, and also result in refined, beautifully finished hair.
Sine stylists, Mischa and Jessi, assisted McLaren’s styling team with their styling presentations that showcased experimentation, design, artistry and passion. They will begin more extensive training next week with Howard and the the other R and Co hair super stars, Garren and Thom Priano. Sine Qua Non is honored to be a part of this amazing education team.
McLaren, the co-founder of R+Co hair care, is not only a hairdresser and product developer but also a renowned photographer, a skill that serves him both professionally and personally. Inspired by hairdressers across the world and his keen sense of the hair industry, Howard directed, created and produced The Reset, a two part documentary on where the hair industry is going, how to be a leader and the power behind the chair. SQN Owner Laura Boton was interviewed in the reset (see link here) about the state of Beauty Schools in the USA.
Howard McLaren continues to be a huge inspiration to stylists everywhere by pushing the boundaries of the industry. His skills with a razor have revolutionized how a haircut is executed and his attention to the ever changing hair industry provides hairdressers and hair salon owners proof that our work is invaluable.
