In it's first ever year, Liverpool Urban Hair Show has really made an outstanding impression on all who attended! Using only the smallest amount of money possible in order to create a spectacular event in aid of a charity is not easy. Liverpool Urban Hair Show manged to pull it off with sheer determination and the services of many local businesses; Majestic Model Management who supplied the shows beautiful models, Leo Casino for hosting the event, the fabulous Society Girl's showcasing their daring burlesque talent, TS!t Designs who provided their edgy t-shirts for the models and of course the very talented students of Wirral Metropolitan College who demonstrated their spectacular hair and beauty skills! There were of course many other contributors to this event who all helped make it so memorable.
I attended Liverpool Urban Hair Show as a blogger in order to take photographs for my write-up. I was, of course, very excited but did not expect it to be as "put together" as it actually was. Seeing as this was the very first of it's kind here in Liverpool, I am extremely impressed by the amount of hard work and planning that must of gone into this event. Each and every person I met who had contributed their services towards the hair show was so nice and truly professional. Not a thing went wrong throughout the entire evening, not that we saw of anyway!
As I mentioned earlier, this event was thrown in aid of charity. The charity chosen was the Liverpool One Foundation. The Liverpool One Foundation aims to help and develop all areas throughout the city; this includes offering grants. One thing which really stood out to me was that the Liverpool One Foundation has been helping to get young people off the streets by funding activities such as fishing with the older adults in the area. What a fantastic way to not only keep younger people occupied over the Summer but to also teach them many useful skills!
The main theme of this event was... you guessed it... hair! The level of hair skills that the Wirral Met. students demonstrated was incredible! As you can see in the images, a lot of the styles are very "high fashion" which is right up my alley, as they would say. I was completely sucked into watching the whole time the models where walking the catwalk. Not only were the models great but also their hair, make-up and outfits were pure perfection. As you can see, I enjoyed myself!
In between catwalk shows, entertainment was constantly provided. This is something to admire as this kept everybody happy at all times. Entertainment included many musical acts also burlesque dancers too! My favourite was the Vertigo stilt walkers, making me feel like the smallest person ever... it was amazing! Also keeping us entertained was the fact that we got to vote for our favourite hair styles throughout the entire event. This made things a lot more interesting and definitely kept us paying attention to every detail.
At the end of the night, the final three hairstylists and their models were called to the stage. I was happy to see that one of my favourites had made the cut. After much anticipation the winner was announced... it was my favourite! Although I had a favourite, I loved them all, it was definitely hard to choose between styles and all of the girls should be so proud of themselves!
Now that Liverpool Urban Hair Show 2013 has come to an end, I am now anxiously awaiting to attend the next. LUHS is going to come back even bigger, better and stronger. I hope that I get to be a part of the experience again soon, I am sure you will too...
