Besides decking up actresses such as Deepika Padukone, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as well as Anushka Sharma, French hair and makeup stylist Florian Hurel has also organised a masterclass for all those who want a career in this profession. Talking about the same he says, “It’s a masterclass for all aspiring hairstylists and makeup artists to upgrade their skills to the next level. It gives them the freedom to express themselves and not just follow what’s up on the board,” he says.
Talking about the inception of this class, Florian says, “I have an educational background since I was 16 and have the passion to teach students and share all the knowledge I have. Many people look at me as an inspiration and follow the work I do thoroughly. Thus, I came up with a concept of Pro Masterclass and Look&Learn Masterclass. The classes have started since October 2018.”
He adds, “Training is and has always been an important part of my life. I started my career as a trainer and have learned from the biggest and the best in the industry which I feel I should share it in return to the students. Education grows by sharing and not by keeping to oneself. There’s a saying that ‘knowledge can only be volunteered, it cannot be conscripted’.”
The stylist has received a great response. “The students’ response is overwhelming. The feedback of the students is to keep on having the masterclass as often as possible and across all states in the country. We are looking forward to starting our academy soon,” he says.
Needless to say, his students love him. “Students look up to me as an inspiration and try to recreate the looks what I’m doing on celebrities. I get many questions regarding the looks I do on a daily basis and tend to answer as many as possible,” he says.
