Sorry for having been off the radar a little, we’ve had an extremely busy month! The Guildford and Wimbledon hair salons entered the Schwarzkopf Professional Creative Team Competition which took place on the 15th April so we’ve spent a lot of time preparing. All entries were based on Essential Looks Spring / Summer 2010 collection so they were really current hair styles and very on trend. It was fun being able to experiment with the hair to create a multitude of looks. The Wimbledon branch based our entry on the Cyber Sport collection which was made up of 4 models ie 3 girls and 1 guy. We wanted to use sport but with a futuristic edge. The Guildford John Carne salon based their collection on Punk Goddess.

 We all had a great time participating despite not winning the grand prize! Our Wimbledon team consisted of Alexandra Manton (me!), Jayde Rabbetts, Nigel Harvey and Darren Read.

Anyway finger’s crossed for the next competition…

Hi Guys n’ Girls,

It’s Alex here from the Wimbledon salon. I wanted to tell you all about my exciting plans to go travelling round Nepal. It’s for a month and I’m volunteering to work in a children’s home. I’ll also be trekking and venturing to Everest Base Camp which will be amazing. I’m so excited already! I’m obviously bringing along my Kit as I’m hoping to pass on my knowledge to the locals and help benefit them. During my journey I’ll be travelling round and staying with various families and other volunteers so figured that I could put my scissors to good use so they don’t rust whilst I’m away, and cut  hair to show my gratitude for their hospitality during my trip.

Anyway, once I’m back I’ll fill you all in….


Surbiton High School

December 16, 2009

Dear all,

Stephanie here from the Wimbledon branch. We’ve been flat out in the run up to Christmas and it feels like it couldn’t come at a better time!

Last week we were with Surbiton High School helping out at their Fashion Show which was really good. As hairdressers we always love it when we get a chance to use our creativity and so this was the perfect platform to showcase our work. We styled ten heads of hair and had a good natter back stage where we had a consultation with the girls beforehand to check that they were happy with our ideas. The girls were all very relaxed and happy to go with the flow which in turn but our jobs easier.

We got creative with crimping, created some sky high ponytails, slicked back hair and a dab of back combing combined with beehives and glossy flowing locks meant we had our work cut out.

Feel as though I need a rest now – thank goodness Christmas is just round the corner!

Stephanie, x
