📍 The Jingle Bell Ball is my favourite working weekend of the year because I get to see my best mate ROMAN KEMP do his thing in front of a sold-out O2 arena for two days. We are pulled from pillar to post all weekend, doing links for Sky, Global Player, artist interviews and press runs – but it’s always so fun. We get a good time slot in the morning for haircut and grooming and then I’m on hand all day and evening for touch ups so he’s camera ready for the show. I’m immensely proud to be a part of the event, but I also love seeing so many hair and make-up friends on site showing off their skills.
📍This appearance on LOOSE WOMEN was to promote ROMAN’S book, he was also on the show to talk about mental health.
📍 Grooming for TOM GRENNAN, who performed his and Joel Corry’s single, Lionheart, on the Strictly results show. I love working with Tom. He’s got a great eye for fashion and my friend is his stylist so it’s always a nice collaboration. We have been growing his hair, so there are lots more looks to come ready for his upcoming album release and tour in the next few months.
📍 The NAILS INC team are one of my faves – I think this was the 8th campaign I’ve shot with them! Now I feel part of the family, so they ask a lot on hair concept and shot order to achieve the best results. They are an incredible brand that’s continuing to evolve and produce great imagery, so it’s lovely to be part of.
📍 I was asked to go out to Amsterdam to shoot a new campaign for Keune Haircosmetics. It was nice to be able to work alongside the creative agency and production team to create concept, model casting, styling ideas etc and to be integral to the whole shoot. I can’t wait to see the final results…
