The Hairdressers' Charity's Night of Glamour

Tuesday, 12 March 2019 10:46

Over 200 guests including sponsors, manufacturers, trade editors and influencers joined forces with hairdressers from across the country at The Hairdressers’ Charity Ball held in London last week.

Hosted by co-President’s Samantha Grocutt from Essence PR and Philip Sharp from ASP, the event combined a runway hair show with fundraising opportunities, as well as providing a superb platform for the charity's newly launched #InTheirWords campaign, a series of short films involving recognised faces from the industry telling case studies of the beneficiaries the charity helps, in their own words. 

The hair show, Love and Strength, included creations by guest artists including Nicky Clarke London for Wella Professionals, Brooks & Brooks for L’Oreal Professional, Tracey Devine-Smith for ASP, Andrew Smith Salons for Wonderful Life, Simon Tuckwell Hair for The Fellowship for British Hairdressing, Nicola Smyth Award Winning Hair for Goldwell, Hairdotcom, and Anne Veck Salon.  Awards were also presented on the evening. The new Jeffery Bonn Fundraising Award, in recognition of long-standing charity treasurer and supporter Jeffery who passed away in 2018, was presented to Sharon Malcolm for her unwavering support and fundraising for the charity for many, many years. The President’s Award was presented to Karine Jackson for her dedication and support in championing the charity. 

The ball also raised over £5000 on the night through pledges and interactive Heads & Tails game.

“The night was a great success and the buzz in the room was exactly what we needed to keep the charity front of mind,” commented Philip Sharp. “A lot goes into organising these events but it’s worth it. There was a great balance of sharing our key messages, fundraising, and networking.” 

“We really want this night to become a key fixture in the hairdresser calendar,” added Samantha Grocutt.  “And by increasing attendee numbers, we not only raise funds but also aware of what the charity does. We’re a small but important organisation and we're thankful for everyone’s support in creating such a successful night.”
