How to build your portfolio

This course lets you see hair through the eyes of some of the industry's finest STYLISTS. As part of the INSPIRATION ZONE, ghd guest artists will showcase their latest work and share their journey to success!

Educator: ghd art team member, Sophie Laidlaw

Level: All levels

Format: Look and learn seminar with workshop

A strong portfolio is the key to working as a session stylist. Hosted by ghd art team member Sophie Laidlaw, this seminar will help you take the first steps to building your portfolio.

Using the inspiration areas on ghdhair.com, Sophie will show how to research ideas for shoots and how to get things started by creating conceptual moodboards and setting up test shoots. Sophie is a firm believer in the 'seed to fruit' philosophy of building connections and netwroking. She'll share her hints and tios on creating new contacts and how they can help your journey into session work.

The seminar will also put theory into practice, allowing you to create your own concept for a shoot, build the moodboard and then work on hair looks to bring it to life. You'll leave the seminar with all the inspiration and ideas you need, ready to shoot.
