Hairdressing and fashion go hand in hand and at Janet Maitland we’re really committed to being Durham’s most fashion-forward salon group.
To support that commitment, two team members recently headed backstage at London Fashion Show to work on designer, Edeline Lee’s show.
Lauren Adey and Sarah Coxon joined Schwarzkopf Professional for the designer’s Autumn/Winter 2023 showcase, which took place in and around Burlington Arcade in Mayfair: one of London’s most exclusive shopping streets.
It was a fabulous – and fast-paced – experience that the girls LOVED!
Lauren says: “It was an amazing experience! We helped backstage as a team assisting with the hairstyling of the models, dancers, and musicians. During the fashion show, we were each assigned a model to look after for touch ups, so their hair was perfect for the press and photographers”.
“Being behind the scenes at London Fashion Week was spectacular,” adds Sarah. “We worked in a huge team with 20-minute turnovers, all of us being responsible for the hair being perfect for the show. Being in amongst the chaos was a great experience, and I loved getting stuck in, learning and being creative with our assigned looks for each model.”
Fresh from their own ‘London Holiday’, Sarah and Lauren will now be sharing their learnings from London Fashion Week with the rest of the salon team to ensure clients at Janet Maitland all get to experience a catwalk-worthy look at every appointment.
