Stylists at a Chichester salon stepped out onto the high street to take part in the city’s Summer Street Party – and ended up braiding the hair of more than 200 people.
Staff at Q Hair and Beauty took part in Chichester’s Summer Street Party on Thursday 22 August, offering complimentary braiding and plaiting at their stand.
“We started the day with two stylists on the stand but it quickly became very popular and we soon had a queue lined up all down the street,” said Kain Lawrence, Q’s general manager.
“In the end we had six stylists working the stand and completed over 200 braids throughout the evening. The response was amazing.”
The street party was part of a Love Local, Shop Local summer campaign.
“The event was the first of its kind I’ve ever seen in Chichester and the city was full of hustle and bustle, with everyone seeming to really enjoy it,” said Kain.
“We are very proud to say we have been on the high street in Chichester for almost 50 years, so the community is in our heart. We love taking the team out of the salon and supporting events like this, that bring the city together and keep the high street alive and buzzing.”
