Held in the Novello Theatre in London’s West End, the Tribu-te Show in London hosted an audience of more than 900 hairdressers to view live demonstrations on-stage from the industry’s top stylists, including our very own Kevin Murphy, along with Skyler McDonald, Hooker & Young, Trevor Sorbie and team, and Xpresion. Each artist is allowed up to two models on stage for a solo spotlight performance in a 20-minute segment. Kevin opened the second half of the show, bringing sewn-in embellishments and natural texture to the stage with just a few products and no heat.

“I have a bit of an eco/carbon neutral thing going on,” explained Murphy, “I love the idea of doing my looks with no electricity, so no hot tools and no irons. I hope to be working with freshly-washed hair and shaping that around the head. I’ll be using products of course because that is what I do – but I wanted to use the natural texture of the hair without using any electric tools.”
