Paul Stafford goes Global with UniteBritish superstar stylist and three time winner of Northern Irish Hairdresser of the Year Paul Stafford is to take top billing at a major US show after being whisked out to California by top haircare product house Unite.

Stafford, who is based in Belfast, will be appearing onstage with some of the world’s greatest hairdressers at the Unite Global Session event, which takes place in San Diego on 3-8 October. Guaranteed to motivate and captivate an international audience, Stafford will be outlining the techniques and dramatic flair behind some of the signature looks that have kept him at the forefront of UK hairdressing for more than two decades.

Unite founder Andrew Dale was keen to secure Stafford’s presence among the team of educators appearing at the Global Session in San Diego’s Balboa Theatre.

“Paul is an awesome hairdresser with an amazing pedigree and I’m thrilled that he could take time out from his own salon to join us,” said Dale. “The Unite Global Artistic Team will be pulling out all the stops to inspire audiences with incredible and innovative techniques from across the world. With his experience and fashion sense, Paul is going to be a hugely valuable addition to the line-up.”

Stafford will be doing stage presentations on Sunday the 5th and Monday the 6th of October alongside top-flight hairdressers from Sweden, the UK, the US and Australia, and will be treating delegates to a hands-on workshop on Tuesday the 7th.

“I love Unite,” said Stafford. “They are amazing products from an amazing, forward-looking company. I also love sharing what I do, putting my skills and knowledge into the melting pot of international hairdressing excellence, so I was immensely proud that Unite asked me to appear in San Diego alongside some of the world’s best stylists.”
