The Hair Charity had a Ball

The Hair & Beauty Charity absolutely smashed the fundraising at this years annual ball. 200 guests from across the industry came together for the evening and raised a whopping £9,000.

Held at Atmosphere 28 and hosted by the glamorous president, Samantha Grocutt from Essence PR. The night was fulfilled with networking, a runway show, awards, entertainment and not forgetting the all important fundraising.

The stunning runway show, ‘Diversity’ included guest hair artists: Charlie Taylor for Wella Professionals, Charles Worthington for L’Oreal Professional, Tracey Devine-Smith for ASP, and Linnaean Art Team for Goldwell, with nails provided by OPI, lashes from Salon System and makeup from professional salon brand, Delilah Cosmetics.

Also taking to the stage was hairdresser, Katie Barnes and beauty therapist, Jodie Keegans. Both shared real-life stories on how the charity had helped them in their hour of need. The night didn’t stop there. Awards were then presented to Darrel Starkey-Gettings, Taylor Hair Studio and Toby Dicker, The Chapel.

“What an evening! I want to thank all the committee who volunteer their time to keep the charity front of mind, our sponsors and fundraisers who ensure we can help those who need it and on the night, our guests who really digged deep and championed what it is we are doing for the charity,” concludes Samantha Grocutt, President of Hair & Beauty Charity.
