Zumba, Berlin & Salon Business Awards

salon awards for karine jackson hair salon in covent gardenAs always life is brilliantly busy… so busy in fact that I actually forgot to post my last blog (Duh!)

I’m looking forward to my Zumba class tonight, I love just zoning out and exercising, clearing my head for a bit.

I had an amazing weekend in Berlin; it really is an amazing city, it’s very gritty with lots of cool cafes, loads of history, amazing architecture and art. It’s a city looking out for young talent – I loved it! One of my team said I’d never been able to get into Berghain (it’s supposed to be the hardest club in the world to get into) – DONE. It was amazing, situated in an old power station and the sound system just beats through your whole body.

On the Sunday we were at Mauer Park where they have a huge flea market (not really my thing) but in the park it’s also Karaoke Sunday where different bands can set up and play – we heard some really cool music.

Areas We Cover

West End Salon - Nearest Tube Stations Leicester Square or Tottenham Court Road

My favourite site was the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. I was originally reluctant to see another church in Europe as I’ve seen so many over the years. This one was completely different – it looks like a dark, sad piece of honeycomb from the outside but when you step inside it’s an amazing piece of architecture, stunning handmade stained glass and a dominating gold-plated sculpture of Jesus on the cross.

Back at work, I flew in and it was all systems go again. We’ve been shortlisted in the colour salon category at the Salon Business Awards which is very exciting!

On Friday my friend Janet hosted an event at Exmouth Market for new music. It was a brilliant night, where performers got up, sang a few tracks whilst giving us their story – I’m looking forward to the next event.

This week I’ve been judging the Goldwell Colour Zoom awards along with Creative Head’s It List Awards – congratulations to all the finalists! I was at the House Of Commons on Monday with the Hair Council to get our profession more recognition – if you’re a hairdresser and you’re not registered – it’s time. I love the House of Commons, it’s such a grand building filled with so much history.

I’m now off to The Dorchester for our first meeting in preparation for the Fellowship luncheon in December.

Hope you’re all OK out there with this epic rain, we’re flooding in the salon – EEK!

I’ll keep you all updated
