What happens when a top-notch beauty professional and a high-end beauty brand are brought together? This is the question that is making hair, make-up and style aficionados all abuzz as they eagerly await the upcoming salon masterclasses by award-winning stylist Daniel McLennan.
The masterclasses will be specially designed as an intensive workshop that will reveal and demonstrate McLennan’s hair and makeup styling secrets to a limited number of participants. It was conceptualised on the heels of McLennan’s win as a selected finalist for the prestigious De Lorenzo Gold Photographic Competition 2012.
“Being selected as a national finalist was a turning point for me. The judges are among the industry’s most revered, and my competitors are the best in their fields. Being picked among hundreds of other entries was a very humbling experience,” says McLennan, who has collected awards over the years both for business recognition and for hair and makeup, Sydney-based and nation-wide competitions.
His most recent achievements include making it as finalist for two succeeding years in the Waverly Best and Brightest Businesses and as a strong contender for the eagerly awaited roster of finalists for the American Crew Face Off 2013. For the latest season of MasterChef Australia, he was featured as hair and makeup artist for the Final 6 contestants, and was invited to the final judging episodes—all contestants declared him as their favourite hairdresser.
“I’ve always believed in paying forward—sharing the knowledge and experienced I’ve gained over the years, this masterclass is my small way of promoting craft, innovation and esteem in the profession,” he explains.
McLennan’s work is regularly featured in top events and projects in fashion, TV, print, movies and music. One Room is his youngest baby—he has already established four successful salons under his name in Sydney and the UK, and is regarded as the hairdresser, Sydney clients say, who proudly supports world-class Australian made and owned hair products such as De Lorenzo and Kevin Murphy.
