On Thursday we closed our London hair salon and had an evening out at the Coronet in Elephant & Castle. Having won the regional heats earlier in the year Stelios was now in the semi final with other stylists from all over the UK.
First on stage was Lee Stafford showing us what he does with Redken’s products after Adam Brown had coloured the models hair with the new range of Chromatics colours.
Finally it was time to announce the winners. We’d already cast a (very, in some cases) critical eye over the other stylist’s creations so we were quite confident, and Stelios hadn’t let us down. Along with Andrew Barton Salon, Vision were the winners of the Runway to Reality category. We even had other salons cheering for us when it was announced!
After the announcements and fresh from his success in 3 of the 4 categories (of course he deserved to win…) Andrew Barton took to the stage with AJ Blackadder to present his Olympic inspired collection. As we’ve been doing dip-dyes for quite a while now we sneaked out to the bar and drank a few bottles of champagne so we missed most of his show, but we’re sure it was great.
Congratulations (again!) Stelios, and everyone else who took part. There’ll be more pictures coming soon…
