Our client Sarh came in for the chop.  A new textured bob and fringe for her!

OM and AH London. Behind the scenes.

Jolene and Jemma worked with OM and AH London last weekend on images for their new Yoga wear that will be out soon.

 Its a tough job for our assistants but someones got to do it!

Davines has landed

We now are the proud owners of a load of Davines products for us to use and for you to buy. Again like the other products we use here at VAIN - NOT TESTED ON ANIMALS #crueltyfree

Celeb spot

Jolene looked after actress Claire Cooper when she came in this week. One of the reasons Claire loves VAIN is that none of the colours or products we use here are tested on animals and so are cruelty free.

London Town

Some of the team spent the weekend getting inspiration from them streets of London and nipped into Salon International whilst they were there...


One of our fave colours to come out of the salon this week.

Om and Ah

Siobhan and Jemma have been busy working with ethical clothing brand Om and Ah for their new season. Heres some pics on location.

Creamfields 2016 backstage.

Well what fun we had.

We met some super cool DJs, Heidi, Yousef, Hannah Wants and Lil Rockit and covered people in glitter, braided all day long AND we danced. We would like to say a massive thank you to the Creamfileds team for having us, putting us up in a cool space and looking after us. And a big thank you to Danny and Co barbers and Tariq for working along side us and being our partners in crime.

Take a look at what we got up to...

V Festival 2016 backstage

Festival season came around super fast and we were ready for it!

It was a great year working along side some brilliant stylists from Chester, Stephen, Joe, Emily, Lauren and Stacey. We also had the the opportunity to work with one of the best barbers in the country, Danny Robinson of Danny & Co Barbers. This year we styled some great artists including Katy B and her dancers and SIA's manager. The team were lucky enough to be invited onstage for SIAs set and hang out with some of the guys from Travis and met Stormzy and Craig David.

We would like to say a massive thanks to Rekorderlig Cider, Paul Mitchell, Denman and Oster Pro for there generous support.

As you can imagine everyone had a great time! Over 70 brides and grooms and bridesmaids walked danced and chatted to the exhibitors. Here to the next one!
