Fashion Week can be elitist, you have to be in the right place at the right time with the right people to work backstage. I wanted to make this amazing experience accessible to any stylist that wants it, and that’s what this program does.
New York City, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2016
Working backstage at Fashion Week is no longer a pipe dream for some hair stylists. Through Jon Reyman Pro’s Virtual Runway Styling program, in just five weeks that once unattainable goal can now be a reality for any hairdresser.
Entering its second season, this intensive program of online learning, technical critiques and interactive webinars affords participants at all levels (some are still in beauty school) the opportunity to work backstage at NY and/or London Fashion Week under the guidance of program Founder and Master Hairstylist, Jon Reyman.
“There’s nothing like the amazing energy and camaraderie that you experience working backstage at Fashion Week,” explains Reyman. "Fashion Week can be elitist, you have to be in the right place at the right time with the right people to work backstage. I wanted to make this amazing experience accessible to any stylist that wants it, and that’s what this program does.”
In this five-week online course starting January 6, 2017, Fashion Week veteran Jon Reyman shares lessons, insights and the technical expertise he has developed from his years of leading up to 30 shows a season. Students are able to complete the training in the comfort of their own home and are guaranteed to work backstage at a minimum of one show. Last season students participated in as many as three shows.
Last February the program had 17 stylists from all over (literally from Iowa to Italy) participate. Those who took part in NY Fashion week played a hand in crafting runway hair for shows including Concept Korea, Chromat, Leanne Marshall, Chiara Boni and more. In London, students collaborated with designers like Steven Tai, Osman, Xu Zhi, Cimone and Barbara Casasola.
“Fashion and hair are my passion,” explains Abby Benewith an Aveda Institute Phoenix student and participant in last season’s JRP Virtual Runway Styling course. “Working on runway models at Fashion Week has always been a dream. Getting that access and experience through this course was an amazing and exhilarating experience that I’ll never forget.”
Over the course of the program students learn how to create runway ready styles, to build a proper backstage kit, the ins and outs of working a runway show, including terminology, process and proper backstage etiquette.
Enrollment begins Tuesday, November 1st 2016. Pre-course work starts December 28th with webinars running weekly from January 6th to February 2nd.
Program tuition for new students is $2,000 and does not include the cost of travel or the required tools to create a backstage kit. Returning students pay $1,000 to participate and for students looking to work a NY and London Fashion Week show the cost is $3,000.
