Well our very first exhibition is over and we loved it! Pro Hair Live 2015 London at Olympia was a great way to launch Gold Class to fellow passionate extensionists. Sat alongside the Professional Hairdressers own stand and the Red Carpet & Bridal Stage, our stand looked amazing with a pod using our media coverage montage to make Michelle Heaton’s face from one of our collection images. Michelle spotted this on twitter and replied “Wow! That’s a rather large picture of my face hahaha xxx”
We were staying in the Hilton Hotel Olympia with quite a few other exhibitors and we had a good laugh with the Balmain bunch on the table next to us at dinner each evening.
It was the first time we had shown our application machine and we can say how impressed everyone was on the compact size and design. We even had a suggestion to give it a name it was so cute. So if you have a suggestion, please let us know. Our complete range of brushes and combs were on show, alongside our clip-ins and aftercare ranges with UNITE and Philip Kingsley. Although it was our Hair Wall with our 25 shades that stole the show.
Day 1 was quite a nervous affair as the Inanch Team were on stage demonstrating application and cutting & styling techniques. With not a spare seat in the seminar, crowds formed to hear the team share their passion for glamorous hair and tips for working with the different methods with Inanch showing pre-bonded, Lee working with micro rings and Roberto on taped hair. Our models were of course our own Gold Class Girls including close friend to Inanch, Michelle Heaton. Inanch had also on stage the gorgeous models Ianthe Rose, Imogen Leaver and Sara McLean.
With old Miss England friend and compare Andrew Minarick asking questions, the team were on stage for around an hour and available for photographs and questions afterwards. Michelle kindly had a quick interview with the Pro Hair Live team which should be featured online and in the magazine soon. We will keep you posted as soon as it’s available to see! Our beautiful models roamed around the show and enjoyed a snap on the Fudge stand and were stopped everywhere to have a closer look at their hair and show-stopping PiaMichi gowns.
Day 2 meant we had a much needed lie in as the stand was ready for us to start working on our models again. MTV’s Ex On The Beach star, model and DJ Mel Reeves joined us as Roberto applied a full head of extensions and styled her hair to perfection with a crowd of on-lookers. It was also a day to catch up with the great and good from the industry and share our story.
Our Elite-10 campaign had salons making the journey to Pro Hair Live just to see us. Completely humbled by this and the response of salons wanting to be one of the first exclusive destination salons for us. We have some tough choices to be making now as we look through the applications. We even had stylists claiming to be ‘Gold Class Stalkers’ as they have been following our work on social media and waiting for us to come to Pro Hair and see for themselves. A huge thanks to everyone who stopped by to wish us well and take an interest in our hair and products.
We have a couple of our new Trolleys available to buy at our show offer price for the next 10 days only. To get one of our state-of-the-art trolleys delivered to your salon for only £750+VAT, please get in touch by the end of Friday 8h May.
The start of a new year signals a chance to change for many and our Gold Class Girls are no different. Only this last week has seen many of our lovely clients in for a change and the most significant is the colour change for Lauren Goodger. Keen to ditch her blonde bombshell image she stepped into Inanch London and the experienced hands of Roberto Silva to start the change into a sultry & sophisticated brunette. Warm chocolate browns were the new hue and returning Lauren back to her natural shade. Tweeting that evening “stage one … My brown hair us back … Next stage back to @inanchlondon for gloss”
Back in salon for the second stage, Roberto completed her transformation with colour matched extensions and some additional caramel tones to add subtle highlights throughout. Adding 200 strands of Gold Class Hair in 50cm to give plenty of volume and length for this glamorous look. Lauren shared lots more snaps on Instagram showing off her finished look and we think we are going to be seeing a lot more of her as she enjoys her new do and exciting plans for the future.
Also in to add new length was Sam Fraiers to help her sister Billie celebrate her birthday; Rochelle Humes for some maintenance before the BRIT nominations and Michelle Heaton in preparation for the National TV Awards this week.
November is a really busy time with the run up to Christmas and Roberto’s loyal clients making sure they have their extensions looking fabulous for the awards & party season. But we managed to grab five minutes with Inanch’s right hand man …
It’s never a dull moment at Inanch London with lots of famous faces in salon and the paps camped outside to make sure they get some great snaps as they leave with fabulous hair – Sam Faiers caused quite a stir the other week. The demand for Gold Class is growing and most of my regular clients have all swapped over and love the hair. As an extensionist I just love working & playing with this hair. The Healthy Hair Days philosophy really backs up all our salon experience to provide the absolute best extensions & service.
Extensions are the biggest part of my day but my colour work is also in demand as the season changes we have seen a few shifts from blonde to brunette or even darker. Michelle Heaton is craving another darker hue so watch this space.
In between all this, the team are busy working closely with Inanch on the training aspects for Gold Class. Fine tuning our manuals and educator notes to make sure we share all our experience with our trainees. We have had a play with all the new equipment to make sure each of us are consistent. It’s been really interesting looking at our work from a different angle as our extension work is second nature and we are keen to share this passion. As the main educator in salon, it is hugely rewarding and I can’t wait to start rolling out Gold Class education in the new year.
Not one to stay in the shadows of his boss, Roberto has started to gather a collection of awards for his extension work and recently won the Great Lengths Gold Trophy for Extensions Excellence. #OneToWatch
Can you believe we have already shot our 2015 collection? How organised are we??
We flew the team to the beautiful city of Istanbul to capture our hair in the very best light. Staying in the new Hilton Hotel in the heart of the city we had some amazing shots and then ran out to a former EFES beer factory currently being renovated for some more shots with models Imogen Leaver, Ianthe Rose and Tara Hoyos-Martinez. On our second day of shooting, Michelle Heaton joined us for a special shoot wearing a magnificent wedding dress.
The shoot went so well we also managed to sneak in some downtime and had an amazing evening dinner on the island of Kiz Kulesi – you can only get there by boat but it was so worth it and very beautiful. A great way to celebrate the end of the shoot with the whole team.
Check out our images in our gallery – hope you love them.
Special thanks to Pia Michi for their beautiful dresses!
