Welcome back Stuart Forrester 🙂
After a 2 year working trip in Brazil, living in Porto Alegre, the capital of the South and Sáo Paulo in the heart of South America, Stuart Forrester is now back in the UK.
Stuart’s journey began in Porto Alegre in 2015 working for Salon Cubo, one of the most creative and progressive hair salons in Brazil. He was invited by his good friends Artur Lopes and Jonathas Diniz to work in their flagship salon on the top floor of a skyscraper.
Creative, high energy Salon Cubo provided Stuart with the opportunity to share his knowledge and be part of numerous high profile model shoots for editorials and advertising campaigns.
After a year working in the South, Stuart moved North to the state of São Paulo, the most cosmopolitan city in Brazil, with a population of 45 million.
Working as a barber in the affluent district of Moema, Stuart was invited to give his Brazilian counterparts an insight into British hair fashion in a series of well-attended and popular seminars.
Stuart had fabulous time working in Brazil and made great use of his hairdressing talents as well as learning to speak Portugese!
Now that Stuart’s back, and in his role as Director of Training at the Forresters Training Academy, he will be working closely with the Forresters hair salon managers and their teams.
