Last night I had the pleasure of attending the Barry Alan / Louise Lace Summer Hair & Fashion event – Which I was buzzing about all day!

I have met the lovely Louise Lace several times before however this was my first time to Barry Alan

Greeted with a glass of fizz and amazing nibbles from The Little Party Company the event was underway.

Seriously though these party cake pops are incredible!

Barry introduced himself and his team along with personal stylist Louise Lace who was on hand to talk all things fashion and Carli & Danielle from the Norfolk Hair and Beauty Training Academy who were wielding the make up brushes.

I was first up for my blow dry with Eden who talked me through what I wanted and explained every step and process along the way so I could recreate the look at home…

…No chance, look how beautiful it is, I can barely get a bounce out of it at home!

(Excuse the lack of make up… that bit’s coming)

The Little Party Company kept me topped up with fizz all evening and Eden told me all about the blow dry bar in the salon. If 4 or more of you book in, you get a free bottle of bubbly to enjoy whilst getting ‘out out’ ready and at £15 each how can you not.

Louise took aside small groups to discuss fashion, body shapes and looking out for what’s right for you. I decided last night I was going to let Louise in to my wardrobe and give me a good old sort out – I’m scared I will have to finally part with my never worn treasures from 10 years ago – Probably for the best though right?

Carli from Norfolk Hair and Beauty Training Academy had the pleasure of educating me on eyeshadows, very patient and created exactly what I was hoping for my onwards journey to meet the girls for cocktails.

The salon was buzzing all evening with talks of fashion, make up and hairstyles.

The teams worked hard all evening giving each and every customer the same level of attention and enthusiasm.

Beautiful hair, women now ready to confidently tackle the shops along with professionally made up faces filled the salon. It was a real pleasure to be invited and be part of such a lovely event.

I am already booked in with Barry Alan for a cut and colour and planning on booking in with Louise Lace real soon.

Thank you all again for hosting such a wonderful evening
