He is without doubt one of the most influential and extraordinary artists in our industry. Florida based creative Trent Day and brainchild behind the inaugural 2 day F1 Color Workshop event sponsored by Leyton House Professional and Life of Riley Salon Supply.


June 26th to 28th at The Roxy Academy hosted by Trent and Su Bee Courtney, Leyton House brand Manager was hands down the location to be for this colouring and cutting event.

Indulging in their love for education and the Leyton House colour brand Trent’s enthusiasm was perfectly matched with his own unique Geometrix cutting style and meticulous yet creatively executed colouring techniques.  Trent is also the gracious co-founder of the JackStoreyFoundation. A non-profit organisation providing financial support to those who need help getting a start in the beauty business by providing a scholarship to a cosmetology school. Jack Storey Foundation will also provide scholarships to support those in the industry that want to further their career with advanced education.

Trent says, ‘Not only will we showcase the latest trends, but also prepare you for future trends.  A unique look at current color chemistry and application that will allow you the creative freedom to not only be on trend but be ahead and create your own’.

Su Bee Courtney: It was so wonderful meeting new professional friends, catching up with past friends and diving deep into Geometix haircutting and hair color.

Thank you, Kelly Huether and Life of Riley Salon Supply, for ongoing commitment and support.
