There were curls, braids, balloons and bubbles at Stonehills Hairdressing when the salon threw open its doors for the Big Hair Do event.
The event last Wednesday aimed to celebrate existing clients and welcome new ones in an evening that was topped off with a fundraising raffle for charity, raising £250 for the Diana Award Anti-Bullying Campaign.
Customers nibbled on cupcakes and canapes in between selfies and gossip, while the stylists got busy with their brushes at up-do stations, offering product demonstrations and colour consultations.
“It was fun for the guys to show off what we do, and to demystify some of our beauty treatments,” said owner Mike Paraliki.
“It was also really good that we could collaborate with so many local businesses, like Shell Belles Boutique and Waitrose’s Sushi Daily,” he added.
Another Welwyn Garden City company, Face and Skin, offered botox demonstrations.
Mike added: “And in the three hours that we were here we raised £250 for charity.”
The Big Hair Do is a nationwide event involving 100 salons, and Stonehills was one of only five that were selected for sponsorship by KMS Hair UK.
