Last weekend, Maddi and Kelsey made the trip down to Manchester to visit the Pro Hair Live exhibition at Manchester Central, excited to see what's new for 2018...
This year's show was host to some of the biggest industry names, such as Lee Stafford, Errol Douglass MBE and Hooker & Young. We even saw some of the babes from the awesome Not Another Salon in London!
We had our eyes peeled for new gadgets and trends, as well as some good old fashioned hair porn...
Local North-East heroes,Hooker & Young created some beautiful looks on The Platinum Stage.
We watched Jamie Stevens (TV/celebrity stylist), showcase some of the latest gadgets and techniques to pass on to our gorgeous clients to keep their hair salon-ready at home.
We couldn't help but cop a feel of some hair extensions! As well as taking in some of the inspiring, creative looks from the stage.
One of our favourite parts though of traveling to trade shows, is that we get to catch up with some of our hair besties from around the UK! On the left there is the total babe that is Mark Taylor of Signature's Southport who is an absolute hair extension wiz and incredible stylist. Then on the right we put the boys to work - there's a definite perk to sharing an apartment with some of the best stylists in the game! Kieran Fleming of Lil K's Hair in Derby lent Mark a hand to get us all looking and feeling fabulous for the after-show party!
We were honoured to spend the weekend with some of the best in the biz, there was Kieran from Lil K's, Charlotte from The H.I.V.E in Leeds, Vanessa from Dreamgirlz, Mark from Signatures and Maddi and Kelsey from your favourite witch shop, The Oraculum. We had a great time and look forward to another visit next year!
Like they say... work hard, play hard!
