The Global Hair and Fashion Group, which comprises some of the most progressive hairstylists throughout the U.S. and Europe, is the most published hairdressing group in the USA and one of the most widely published globally. Known for their unique ability to combine high fashion with commercial wear ability, group members gather regularly in global fashion capitals to seek out the latest trends and interpret them for their salon clients.

Global Hair and Fashion Group members have been traveling globally, setting trends locally, sharing information and doing hair-fashion photo shoots for over 15 years. In the past, they met regularly in London, Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Milan, where they conducted photo sessions that focus on individual talents and trend predictions. As part of an expansion effort to invite a few select salons to join, the New York Collection is the very first team venture, in which several members came together to create a single statement. “New York Inspirations” takes the pulse of America’s fashion capital and personalizes it for women everywhere. The message: There’s tremendous power in creating an artistic think-tank of likeminded stylists.

Collectively, the members who created “New York Inspirations” have educated thousands of other stylists, served hundreds of thousands of clients and built million dollar businesses that provide employment for the best hairdressers in their areas. Individually, they have introduced hair color techniques such as French Balyage to the United States, developed cutting tools and product lines, set new standards for customer service, produced makeovers on DVD, hosted the nation’s first real “exchange student” program for hairdressers and raised thousands of dollars for local, community causes.

Their work has been viewed by millions of readers and seen in every major newsstand hair-fashion magazine throughout the world. As a result, the much sought after images they create have become the essence of their individual salon identities and key business drivers for the salon’s owners.
