The hairdressing world arrived in Manchester for a hair indulgent weekend.
Thousands of hairdressers from all over the country descended to the North to discover and share hair inspiration. This exhibition brings so much education by some massive names from the industry under one roof, it’s must for any hairstylist. We saw lots of fashion week inspiration on stages from the stylists that create hair for fashion weeks, visitors are treated to beautiful catwalk hair and show stopping inspiration.
This year ghd came to the show with the brand new Beauty Ambition – The Tour, to celebrate the brand new ghd gold styler. Stylists came to learn all about the technology as well as the new ghd girl trends.
Bringing the tour to life was ghd’s Brand Ambassador Zoe Irwin, joined by our Brand Warriors, Style Squad and the ghd global team. We had so much ghd love in the room it was infectious!
Dafydd Thomas was our host for the event with a live feed throughout the 2 days. Of course being ghd we had a few surprises…. We brought along our ghd girls who strutted and danced there way through the event.
The start of the show was the ghd 18K styler, a money can’t buy but you could possibly win with a Willy Wonker style golden ticket.
Our best bits from day 1
On day 2 we continued with the Beautiful Ambition tour with another full house. In the afternoon we held our first open audition for the ghd Style Squad of 2018/19.
This is a unique opportunity for any young stylists with less than 3 years experience. The team are mentored by the incredible Zoe Irwin, trained by the ghd team in hair styling and get to work on ghd events. It is completely free, we are passionate about nurturing young emerging talent and supporting the industry.
The young stylists were asked to come along to the open audition and show us their signature look. They were judged by Zoe Irwin, Lorna Baker, Jordan Thomas, Ria Kulik and myself. I am always amazed at the amount of passion and talent from young stylists. It was a pleasure to work with them this weekend. The finalists will be announced on ghd Facebook Professional
Dafydd Thomas and Amy Sontae shared their inspiration on the Pro Hair Live Platinum stage sharing their gold inspiration in a colourful show, the models hair was braided with ribbons
I love working with this team, it’s always fun!
A massive thanks to CS Media for bringing my vision to life; for the hugs and the chocolate!
