Did you do the ‘do at the Big Hair Do 2018?

Who doesn’t love a party? See all the action as UK salons open their doors for a night of gorgeous hair, awesome advice, and fizz and nibbles aplenty

Blow dry bars AND butlers in the buff? Why can’t every Wednesday be like this?! Up and down the country, salons and their guests partied hard in the name of great hair for the Big Hair Do 2018 in association with hair brands KMS, Redken and TIGI.

Braid bars, wave stations, blow-dry bars, colour labs and SOS hair treatments were set up along with generous servings of bubbly, cupcakes, canapés, selfie stations, retail raffles and even the off singer to serenade…

From Edinburgh to Exeter, clients old and new were tempted into salons for an “experience” evening to remember, showcasing the skills of their teams and highlighting the abundance of services they have on offer.

Big Hair Do veterans Strands Hairdressing in Whiteley demonstrated this perfectly – we saw an Express Therapy zone (where Redken Heat Cure treatments were being given at the backwashes – it was absolutely rammed all night) and kids queuing up at the Glitter Bar with newly styled boxer braids.

Repeat Big Hair Do salon Lisa Hauck Hair & Beauty in London wasn’t just hair – eyebrow tints were available and clients could indulge in massages and manicures.

At Elements in Bishops Stortford a ‘home care station’ stuffed with KMS goodies proved particularly popular, who were able to learn more about how to best manage their hair. Oh, and did we mention the gin-tasting station…? Hic!

F&M Hairdressing in Glasgow ensured five star service with their brawny TIGI-tattooed butlers, while at Anthony Laban in Wandsworth, guests got the lowdown on the new Copyright Care boosters from TIGI, which means salons can personalise the wonderful wash each head gets. How clever!
