Fay Linksman quoted for Olympics-inspired hair styles

Below is a quote excerpted from a blog article on featured on various websites about Fay and her Sochi 2014 hair styles.

Wella Professionals will be creating a full service hair salon at the P&G Family Home for The Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, situated in the Olympic Park. Building on the huge success of Wella’s activity at The London 2012 Olympic Games, the brand will be fielding twelve top colorists and stylists from around the world who will travel to Sochi to be part of an elite team providing hair services to beautify athletes and their families.

The dozen Wella stylists selected are a part of Wella and Proctor and Gamble’s inspirational ‘Thank you, Mom’ campaign. Building on the positive events at the London 2012 Olympic Games, the stylists will be extending their expert color services, styling and hair treatments to the athletes taking part in The Winter Games as well as their biggest supporters, their moms.

In the run up to this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, some of these top stylists have created a hairstyle inspired by one of the sports represented in the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games. In the how-tos below learn how to re-create these Figure skating and Speedskating styles created by Canadian Wella Hairdresser Fay Linksman.

“Figure skating and speedskating – two of my favorite winter sports which have inspired my two styles,” says Fay Linsman. “For one, the structured elegance of a figure skater and for the other a fast, adrenalin-fueled speedskater.”
