Savour Stratford Photo Shoot Sneak Peek

Despite the rainy weather last weekend, Savour Stratford was a fantastic success! We, the staff, at Grotto Hair Studio would like to thank all of our beautiful models for letting us get creative with their hair and make-up. As well, we couldn’t have managed the day without the expertise of David Charlesworth (from davidiam photography) and Kailyn D’Orazio, whose creativity in photography went above and beyond our expectations!

As promised, below are pictures of our lovely models, who are depicting looks straight from the fashion district in Paris. (For those who are just catching up, Jillian Chambers, owner and stylist at Grotto Hair Studio, just came back from four days in Paris, where she was invited by L’Oreal Professionel to attend classes in all the upcoming trends in hair and fashion.)

These aren’t all of the pictures of our models, just a sneak peek. Stay posted for more pictures in the future!





















Savour Stratford’s Parisian Photo Shoot at Grotto Hair Studio

It’s that time of year again in Stratford – one of the favourite¬†culinary festivals in Canada – Savour Stratford. It’s here in Stratford that chefs, culinary artisans, and foodies alike gather to share fork and plate, recipe and inspiration. Food for every palette, brews for every type of sipper, and vision for magic that can be created¬†in the kitchen are abundant.

We, here at Grotto. are privileged to be situated right in the heart of where the festival takes place. York Street closes down, allowing for pedestrian traffic only. Aromas of every appetizing dish under the sun waft, the tones of live music float and the air of excitement is palpable. Each year, during Savour Stratford, we feature an a la carte menu all our own at Grotto Hair Studio, whether that be tutorials, make-overs or live demonstrations. This year, we are bringing a little taste of France to the salon.

Jillian Chambers, owner and stylist at Grotto Hair Studio, has been privileged to be invited by L’Oreal Professionel to Paris, France for classes involving a behind the scenes sneak peek at upcoming runway trends. Not only did she get to meet world-renowned stylists and designers, but she got to work along-side them, learning how to re-create the upcoming fashion and hair statements. Having been back for a week now, Jillian has taken the time to educate her stylists on these trends. With this new knowledge under their belts, the stylists at Grotto Hair Studio have been busy preparing for our very fist live photo shoot, complete with looks straight from the heart of Paris!

Below is a taste of what Jillian was honoured to experience while away in Paris:





Be prepared for volume, for icy blondes, for cool mochas, and the use of metallic accessories! While Savour Stratford Festival is all about the food, allow yourself for a moment to taste France in a different form when you stop by Grotto Hair Studio’s photo shoot on Saturday! We look forward to seeing you then! (And for those of you who unfortunately cannot make it, stay tuned for a post featuring not food, but hair with a Parisian flair!)
