Friend's Grand Salon Opening 26th July 2014

I have an amazing friend who is also my hairdresser behind all the crazy colours I end up getting in my hair.  The creative woman behind my hair designs is a great friend of mine.  Sarah who had been hairdressing since she was 16/17 years old is definitely someone with loads of experience.  She had recently branched out into makeup artistry last year too and I'm happy that she looks to me from time to time for advice.

This year is a big year for her.  A goal of her had been made true and she and her husband is now proud owners of a Hair Salon.

When I first saw this Salon after her purchase, I will have to be honest.  It indeed was old, run down and in need of a major makeover!  I didn't like anything in the salon and I'm glad the happy couple had settled to refreshing the salon to a place that is classy, bright and welcoming.

Weird bunch much?
Above is what it used to look like.  The separation of the salon was rather odd to me and I didn't understand them.  Also those little separated rooms that were being taken down used to be the beauty rooms.  As you see they are not proper walls and having someone as tall as Richard would mean people could actually see over the room dividers!

All taken apart and look how spacious this salon actually is!
Yes... That's a disco ball hanging on the ceiling.  Why in a hair salon?  I really don't know!

I knew the salon was big, but I definitely did not expect it to be this big.  This shows that the way part the salon is important.

The official Grand Opening Launch Party happened on 26th July and after a whole week of renovation even i was proud of how it turned out in the end.  I'm still very excited for Sarah in her new venture in life and I wish her all the best.

As you can see it is looking very good compared to how it used to look.  So I can say good work to everyone that had helped up regardless of how much they did.  Congratulations to Sarah and Richard, so happy for the both of you and hope business is always booming!

For the grand opening launch party we had four lovely models help out.  They got their hair done by amazing friend and hairdresser Sarah.  I volunteered to help her out with the makeup side as well as provide mini makeovers for guests that attended the party.

To finish off here are some full shots with the amazing dresses!

Hope everyone is having a good start to the new week!  I'll be stuck in the office doing loads of paperwork myself and to think this week has good weather too :(
