Stylist Randolph Gray

Renowned international stylist, mentor and hair educator Randolph Gray was in the country last week to conduct a free training to over 60 local stylists and hairdressers.

Organised by Sheer SOUL Signatures, the stylists and hairdressers were trained on the use of the now famous (in the celebrity world) Brazilian Blowout hair treatment.

“I am in Kenya to extend my knowledge to Kenyan salons, hairstylists and hairdressers. Our plan is to equip them with everyday techniques to incorporate cutting edge products in creating hairstyles that are chic, with body and bounce and which incorporate treatments that last longer,” said Randolph.

The London-based stylist has over two decades of experience in cutting edge styling for fashion shoots and shows, as well as styling individual celebrities across the world. Randolph has styled Beyoncé, Gabrielle, Miss Black Britain and Hollywood stars Stacy Dash, Kyle McLaughlin and Woody Harrelson. He was one of the two hairdressers on set of Madonna’s first foray into film directing - Filth & Wisdom - and also worked on the show The Face UK.
