I was recently lucky enough to attend #Hairfest charity night, hosted by the Cutting Club, Cleethorpes. The aim was to raise money for local charity, Supporting Local Champions, whilst having a blast at a fun, festival themed pamper night.
At this event, I met fellow blogger Katie Middleton and (I’m hoping she’ll agree) we hit it off straight away!
Upon arrival we were greeted and offered some fizz, then shown around what was on offer. There were colour specialists to give advice on new looks,free hand massages, a braid workshop, and one lady was glitzing people up with facial glitter to go with the festival vibe to name but a few!
I didn’t know where to start so took a look around. The first thing I noticed was the impressive raffle prizes. Loads of local businesses had donated all sorts of wonderful things to win and the proceeds of the raffle went to charity. I had to have a go (but sadly didn’t win)!
The top prize was a beautiful silver cuff bracelet, made and donated by bespoke jewellery makers House of McCue. Hilariously, salon owner Mr G won it, but insisted the winning ticket be drawn again (much to the disappointment of a couple of his family members who seemed keen to take it off his hands).
The fabulous Riverhead Coffee provided a delicious spread. Despite my (constant) diet, I had to sample it. It’s be rude not to, right? Bagels, banana loaf, cookes and energy balls were going down a treat and I heard lots of complementary mutterings around the buffet tables.
I was really interested in the braiding tutorials, as I have a daughter with long hair who constantly begs for exciting hairstyles. The stylist showed us how to do those posh braids that look raised from the head and I let Katie have a practice on me.
We also took the opportunity to get fully sparkled up with festival facial glitter and I even had some pink put in my hair!
The pink is a temporary dye by Schwarzkopf, this one is Strawberry from the BlondMe Instant Blush Range. I bought a bottle to take home, so keep an eye out on my Insta for some pink hair this summer.
Katie had a wash and luxury blow-dry treatment that she couldn’t get enough of. Her hair was so beautiful and bouncy afterwards.
All in all it was a fantastic night and I’d love to go to the next one. Over £1000 was raised in donations which I think is absolutely brilliant.
The generous people at the Cutting Club also dished out goodie bags at the end. The night alone would have been enough; I had the best time! I’ll leave you with the contents of my goodie bag.
