Hair-up specialist Lucy Healey and the rest of the team behind the recent virtual event, The Big Day are celebrating its success, after raising more than £1,000 for the Hair and Beauty Charity.
Taking place on 20 February via a dedicated event Facebook page, The Big Day was a day-long, online, interactive event featuring amazing hair and makeup artists, including hair-up maestro, Patrick Cameron.
This event was designed to help boost the morale of those working in the hair and beauty sector, while also raising money for the Hair and Beauty Charity who are dedicated to helping hair and beauty professionals hit by hard times.
Throughout the day, those attending were offered the chance to win some fabulous prizes, including an incredible gift pack from Cloud 9 featuring its professional styling Iron and Airshot hairdryer from its Sericite Collection — a prize worth nearly £300!
Commenting on the event, organiser Lucy said: “The Covid-19 pandemic has been a huge challenge for us all within the hair and beauty Industry. But for bridal and special events stylists, there will not been a post-lockdown boom for us to come back to — we still have no clear view as to when our work will come back and morale is so low. I wanted to create an event that would be multifaceted and bring something to the table for everyone. For the stylists, it’s a celebration of their talent and perseverance. For the public, it’s a chance to show we are still here, that we are still able to take bookings in advance and that we are still working on our skills.”
