The entire Hair Construction Team (#TeamHC) would like to wish a big, huge, sexy, sloppy HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one Mr. Palle Freese!!!
For longer than he will admit, Palle has dedicated his life and career to building #TeamHC into what it is today, which is an amazing group of great people who do #KickassHair!
As a former Artistic Director of big brands like Joico and American Crew, Palle quickly realized that hair education was really missing simple documentation, something hairdressers could later reference and review what they saw on stage or in classes and seminars. He knew that creating the documentation, what we now call hairstyle recipes, would be a key ingredient to help improve and spread great hairdressing across the industry and the globe. It is this mission Palle has worked hard for and has achieved so much.
Fast forward over 10 years later and what do you get?!?! You get a #kickass Hair Construction International Artistic Team of 40 top stylists from 10 different countries. You get a #kickass team who works on stage for many of the leading brands in the world, including Wella, Keune, Sebastian, Reuzel, Macadamia, and many others. You get 28 #kickass collections of instructional books, videos and #hairstylerecipes, all created with the same principle of helping ALL hairdressers do #kickass hair.
We are now coming off of our biggest and most fun production yet, and we at #TeamHC are full of enthusiasm and excitement for what we have in store for all you #HairPeople over the next few months. None of this would have been possible without the determination, fortitude, courage, creativity, craziness and hard work of Palle…and of course…all the amazing hairdressers who have contributed to the team along the way. Collaboration is the secret ingredient that Palle has always been able to instill in hairdressers. It is his unique ability to find and lead HC Artistic Directors to put their self interest to the side and collaborate with others, to put their own name to the side to keep the focus on what matters the most, THE HAIRDRESSER!!!
Whether he is playing piano and signing karaoke with Morten to lighten the mood, or editing pics and video with Michael and Frederik for two weeks straight, Palle always brings great energy and a positive spirit that keeps the entire artistic team coming back to our retreats for more every six months. It is truly incredible.
Last but not least…we all recognize and thank Jane, Palle’s lovely wife who probably deserves all of the credit, but since it is his birthday, we are happy to let Palle get some credit for today ;).
Palle and The HC Team has achieved so much, but as he said recently in Brazil, ‘We are just getting started…’!!!
Hugs, love and kisses from all of us Hair Constructors to you, Palle.
Happy birthday…and thank you!!! Continue reading “To the man who started it all…Happy birthday!” »
