So… Somebody decided I needed a brand new, sparkly website with all new fancy pictures. Anyone who knows me, knows I’m not one to do things by halves, so I thought why not throw a festival day photoshoot?
The rain didn’t faze anyone as we kicked off the day in the salon. Starting with plaits and glitter for the kids, along with a Luxurious style birthday party, the girls really enjoyed being pampered, the attention and getting some practise in of their own on the mannequin heads. Fully fuelled and glittered, the kids went all day. Mainly performing a sparkly version of the conga...
In came the lovely models, Tara, Sara and Meg. Not sure they realised what they were in for! Dutch braids, space buns, all round festival hair and a serious amount of glitter they then moved on to make up and some glam festival face decorating. They looked amazing. Turned out more Coachella than Glasto until we hit the muddy garden, anyway.
HEY. Let’s not forget the boys – how could we! Great sports – they had more disco in their beards than John Travolta ever had in his pants. And the theory is, who said glitter at festivals was just for the gals?! He who dares, wins!
So, after a few beers and proseccos in the garden and even MORE glitter popping balloons (note a running theme with me? There’s no such thing as too much sparkle!), we tucked into Aunty Cake’s delicious unicorn cupcakes and it was a wrap. Everyone packed up and shipped off and I'm hoping the girls took their sparkle on to somewhere worthy of the glory that evening!
Overall, I wanted to get some really bright, fun pictures that show off the great work we here at Luxurious and I ended up with a whole lot more. Also, I'm pretty sure we'll be finding glitter around the salon for the next FOREVER. (Yey!)
I want to say a huge thanks to everyone who came along and got involved – YOU ARE THE BEST.
