New venue for HOB UNCUT PLUS as audience numbers rise

A brand new venue and new extended format proved hugely successful for this season’s ‘HOB Uncut/Plus’ show & seminar in Camden this week. 
The show is now in it’s fourth year, and has evolved from a 1-day, once-yearly event into a 2-day, twice-yearly event due to steady growth in popularity. 
The HOB Uncut show also moved to a brand new venue to reflect its growth in audience; Dingwalls, in Camden Market, right opposite the HOB Academy. Featuring live cutting demonstrations with commentary performed on six models by Akin Konizi, Head of Education Jake Unger and Senior Educator Nestor Sanchez, the show was also the debut appearance of new Head of Technical Warren Boodaghian on the HOB stage. Warren discussed colour inspirations, techniques and formulas of the six live models plus six presentation models that he had coloured that morning. His favourite look of the show was a multi-tonal purple placement colour technique which he described as ‘City-night purple’, inspired by the A/W trend of 70’s California influences.  
On the second day, the HOB Creative Team then hosted 25 international attendees who had opted for the 2-day “HOB UNCUT/PLUS” ticket, which gave them the opportunity to undertake a day of practical workshops on live models at the HOB Academy.  
This year also saw instagram competition winner Nathan Klein being awarded the money-can’t-buy prize of assisting Akin and the team backstage as they prepared all the models for the show. Nathan said, “Winning the chance to assist back stage at HOB UNCUT and go on to the see the show was an experience that I’ll cherish forever! An absolutely wonderful opportunity to see how Akin and the HOB Academy Creative Team work together… they were completely flawless!”
HOB Academy will now be looking to plan at least two HOB Uncut/Plus events in 2020 as well as their usual programme of courses and bespoke education.
