Launch, ready, GO!
You already know Daniel Galvin is an Elite-10 salon but we wanted to have a joint launch party and share exactly why they have chosen to work with us at an exclusive press event. We didn’t want you to miss out too so here are the evening’s highlights….
We took over the lower ground floor of the flagship Daniel Galvin salon in Marylebone with over 50 guests joining as Stephen Nurse, Operations Director for Daniel Galvin, introduced Inanch Emir & Rebecca Lennon (Daniel Galvin’s Principle Extensionist) to talk about Gold Class extensions and what makes our brand a class above the rest. The audience included trade & consumer press, bloggers, personalities and members of our other Elite-10 salons; listening on as Inanch talked about her passion for hair extensions and why she started Gold Class. Becky (Rebecca Lennon) talked about her client type and how she can use extensions with her team to create natural looking hair – at the heart of what Daniel Galvin are all about. Alongside their questions, Inanch and Becky had prepared four models to discuss their looks and benefits of extensions to each:
Ianthe – with only around 25 strands of Gold Class to help keep the volume of her on trend lob which she had for a couple of months.
Laura – full head of warm blondes new in that afternoon and so natural everyone thinks it’s her own hair which is perfect for her modelling work.
Anastasia – likes her length at 50cm and full head of extensions curled.
Beth – full head for ‘new to extensions’ Beth who can’t stop swooshing her hair.
Right on cue Michelle Heaton pulled out her Gold Class brush in her handbag to prove the point about caring for your hair extensions. The models joined in to share their top tips of caring for extensions too #SimplyGoldClass. Journalists were then invited to see the hair and equipment up close and to mingle with the team to ask their most burning questions whilst enjoying nibbles and some fizz. We also had our latest products there – more hair care essentials and some new hues – more to follow on these soon.
You did miss a rare opportunity as Inanch herself modelled our Silky Hair Days cap beautifully and the team at Stages Hair Design from Bristol brought along a beautiful Gold Class cake for everyone to share. #nomnom

Why we needed to train our Elite 10
You may be wondering why we need to train our Elite 10. They are all amazing hairdressers and renowned extensionists with an astounding cumulative number of years in the industry and there’s little these guys don’t know about hair.
Our Elite 10 have all joined as they know the work of Inanch Emir well. The multi-award winning (and the trophy cabinet is still growing) stylist is known for her exceptional extensions work. Celebrities flock to her salon in Fiztrovia so when she created Gold Class they all knew it was special. Perfection even. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?
Inanch, like others, has worked with many extension brands and understand about the hair quality and application methods available. In our opinion, Gold Class is the best of the best. We have the best hair quality but Inanch is so passionate about her Healthy Hair Days philosophy from everything she has learnt and this needs to be shared. You can learn more about this in our earlier blogs but it is a different way of thinking for the extensionist and ultimately the client. Scalp and hair analysis as part of the consultation and safe removal process is definitely something unique to Gold Class hair extensions.
You can see some pics from our masterclass training days here where nothing has been assumed. Inanch has taken everyone back to the beginning, talked through every bit of the hair story and shared her coveted colour blending application technique and advanced cutting for the most natural results with extensions. They will also be undergoing sessions with UNITE and Philip Kingsley to prescribe bespoke aftercare regimes.
Let us not forget too that hairdressing is ever evolving with fashion and new products. It’s a brilliant industry to be involved in and share ideas and techniques. That is why we still all train, including Inanch, to keep learning and developing. The training of our Elite 10 has been more about sharing these philosophies to educate their clients, reinvigorating the extensionists with a new passion for the best hair extensions and mentoring the younger team members to bring out their skills and shine. We can’t wait for them to be taking the Best Extensionist titles around the UK soon.
