Visit to the Annual Trade Show - Excel, London
The annual trade show for the hairdressing industry took place recently at ExCeL, London. It can be a shopping extravaganza, as well as a chance to watch demonstrations and attend seminars by the top names in the industry.
This year I spent most of my visit watching hair-up demonstrations gaining inspiration for my bridal work. Patrick
Cameron (pictured) is hairdressing’s long hair guru, who’s courses I’ve attended several times, so it was great to learn his latest tips.
A visit to Salon International isn’t complete without purchasing a few items for my kit, but this year I spent so many hours watching, there wasn’t much time left for shopping. However, I did manage to bring home another wand for my kit bag.
The new Babyliss Spectrum is a flat oval shaped ceramic wand which creates beautiful natural loose waves. Great for the coming festive season, and my brides too. Interestingly, two of the styles I saw demonstrated appeared on Strictly Come Dancing the following weekend!
