The eagerly awaited Grand Finale proved to be a highly inspirational and technically stunning show, paying homage to the late, great style chameleon, and inspiration to a thousand looks, David Bowie. All three segments were inspired by a different facet of Bowie’s constantly evolving and hugely influential style.

The incredibly talented ALFAPARF Milano Nexxt Generation Style Ambassador Creative Team set the scene with a truly dynamic and artistic segment, interpreting an element of Bowie’s unique style. Working with the renowned ALFAPARF Milano technical team and directed by internationally recognised hairdresser Vivica Davies, this first segment showcased the styling prowess of these ALFAPARF Milano ACADEMY educators.

Intercoiffure delivered a highly artistic, fantasy segment directed by Maeve O’Healy-Harte. The theme of the segment was “Fallen Hero”, in homage to Bowie’s iconic anthem, “Heroes”.

Paul Stafford, the recently appointed ALFAPARF Milano GLOBAL AMBASSADOR, headlined the 2016 Grand Finale show with a final homage to Bowie. In yet another show-stopping appearance, following 2015’s incredible performance, Paul once again thrilled and inspired the gathered elite of the Irish Hairdressing industry at the event, bringing the show to a close with his interpretation of this generation-defining artist.
