It’s only been a week but I feel as though I’ve crammed an entire month into it.
Last Friday we were prepping for our first show at Salon International on Saturday morning. Our art team met on Friday night at the Novotel. It was such a great, fun team building weekend. We were working on hair pieces, practising on our fantastic model Tamar, getting kits bags ready and, of course, sipping Champagne whilst we did.
Saturday morning was incredibly hectic, so it was a good job our salon coordinator Sam was there to help us. The Art Team were on stage presenting looks from our 2016 collection using Organic Colour Systems. Marcos was speaking on stage for the first time and he did a fabulous job. On Saturday afternoon I was compering on the Fellowship Stage which is always great fun, but nerve-wracking , especially when you’re introducing legends like hair up specialist Patrick Cameron.

Saturday night was filled with networking in the bar – I’ll never learn to go to bed early! We were up early on Sunday again for our next show on Long Hair and a quick turnaround for Simon to go on stage with the Colour Project. It was the a dash across London to the Tribute show (thanks ghd for my tickets!). Sally my fab PR from Gloss Communications and I managed to have the best steak at Sophie’s Steak House in Covent Garden – their chips are out of this world, the steak was perfectly cooked and the service was excellent. I can’t wait to go back there. The Tribute show was brilliant, well done to Ken Picton, the ghd team and the other artists. We went back to the Novotel on Sunday evening for more networking. Again I’ll never learn to go to bed early!
I was up early again on Monday for the F.A.M.E Team. Our final 8 finalists have now been whittle down to the final 4 – to be announced on the 7th December at the Fellowship Luncheon at the Dorchester. The work produced by our finalists was sensational and they should all be proud to have made it this far. In my role as the chancellor for the Fellowship this is one of my favourite events to organise.
On Monday evening, it was back to Central London for the Creative Head Most Wanted Award’s Dinner. What a great evening at Happenstance – thanks to Catherine Hancock and the wonderful team at Creative Head.
On Tuesday, I was back in the salon looking after my wonderful clients, and then finally I had a night off on Tuesday evening.
On Wednesday night I was at the Roundhouse in Camden seeing one of my favourite techno bands of the ‘90’s – Leftfield. They were even better than the last time I saw them. Two hours of dancing is a great workout but I’m definitely feeling it today – my muscles are in total shock.
This weekend is full of chores, catching up with my friends and trying to relax. Have a great one!
