Our annual Big Hair Do returned on Wednesday 19 June as 100 Schwarzkopf Professional salons across the UK and Ireland opened their doors to style the nation. Let’s see what they got up to…
From fashion shows to Aperol Spritz stations, the Big Hair Do was back and bigger than ever for 2019, as hairdressers across the UK and Ireland proved once more that they really do know how to throw a party!
Events across the land saw salons raising funds for local charities, serving up some delicious nibbles from local businesses, and over at Headlines in Tarleton there was even an extra special guest or two from Woodlands Animal Sanctuary.
Not only was there a LOT of fun and a LOT of goodies on offer, the Big Hair Do provided guests with a unique opportunity to try a new style, experience the salon’s services AND sample some of Schwarzkopf Professional’s new products and treatments. Not surprisingly, with festival season fast approaching, Big Hair Do braid bars were a crowd-pleaser, with guests rocking rainbow braids and glitter roots and some seriously on-trend accessories.
For those with tresses needing a little TLC, there were Schwarzkopf Professional Solve It Stations and the BC Fibre Clinix as well as haircare consultations and bespoke treatments at the backwash. Over at Envy Hair in Kings Lynn, guests were also able to take home sample pots of specially prescribed products perfectly suited to their hair type. No hair need went ignored, as experts were on hand all night long to share tips and tricks.
And the buzz didn’t stop there, with a raft of extra activities taking pride of place on Big Hair Do menus aplenty! At Clacton-On-Sea, local radio station Dream 100 joined in the fun, as guests at Hoop took part in the ‘spin to win’ game, while at KJM Salons in Fleet it was makeover time, as local boutique Experience put on a fashion show and Look Fabulous Forever served up make-up tutorials.
A party wouldn’t be a party without tasty eats and delicious drinks. Mewies and Indy in Quorn served freshly made pizzas straight from a wood-fired oven and cocktails courtesy of The Spritz Co, Envy Hair provided plenty of Pimms and Prosecco and at Hensmans in Northampton there were endless sweet treats on offer, thanks to a pop-up stand from local business Gorge Platters.
To carry on the hair experience at home, every Big Hair Do guest was given a swoon-worthy goodie bag, packed full of Schwarzkopf Professional products to sample, as well as gifts from local businesses and irresistible offers for blow dries, colour services and new client appointments.
