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.
Our hair extensions trolley in the salon has been the envy of many extensionists from around the world and we are often contacted about it to ask where we got it from. We have now produced our very own bespoke version designed by the lady herself, Inanch, with the professional extensionists in mind. A year in the making, this state-of-the-art trolley has everything required to make an extensionist’s life easier, quicker and at the same time, showcasing those beautiful hair strands ready to go on your clients’ hair.
We have created two versions – the full trolley and also a handy counter-top version for mobile work or tighter spaces. We are also opening this up to non-Gold Class salons to be able to purchase, although our own #Elite10 salons will get these at a preferential rate and with full Gold Class branding to help promote the service at their salon.
The main trolley is made from black perspex to give a professional finish that is easily wipeable and comes with a draw to keep your hair extension tools safe & tidy as well as offering storage for your spare hair. The non-slip matt on top holds either your application machine or tools as you work. Rising up the back of the trolley is the individual hair strand holder with 8 rows and to a maximum length of 60cm. The etched vertical divider-line in the centre allows you to hold 2 heads of hair extensions so you can be ready for your next client, or can help you with colour blending by arranging your extensions to customise the look you are creating. All on silent wheels, allows the trolley to swiftly move around the salon to whichever position is needed.
The counter top is the hair stand alone and sits neatly on your work station or reception to help attract your extension service.
Here’s a first glimpse but these will be on our stand at ProHairLive later this month so come and see them for yourselves. They will be available with an exclusive Show Offer for those ordered at Pro Hair Live and delivered free-of-charge to your salon.
If you can’t make it to Pro Hair Live and want to place an order for one, please email to get your name on the waiting list and we will be in touch soon.
We only plan to work with 10 select salons this year to maintain our exclusivity and keep focusing on quality over quantity. Check out our select salon criteria and if you want to join this exclusive family then please come to see us at Pro Hair Live at stand D6 to find out more about the hand-selected private label hair, expert application, accredited aftercare & healthy looking hair regime.
If you are unable to make Pro Hair this time, but are still interested in becoming one of the #Elite10 then please get in touch & register here.
We headed to Pro Hair Live Manchester earlier this month on a scouting mission! We are proud to be at the next ProHairLive event which will be in London for the first time next month so we wanted to head up north to touch base with some of our fellow exhibitors and check out the amazing free seminars as Inanch herself will be on the Bridal & Creative Zone stage during the exhibition so it’s your chance to get top tips for red carpet hair.
It was a great chance to catch up with some industry friends and stopped by the Glenn Lyons seminar at the Business Zone to hear him talking about the basic principles of trichology and the connection with hairdressing which was brilliant. We couldn’t miss a stint on the Bridal Stage when the lovely Paul Falltrick was talking bridal, hair extensions & updo’s to give us some great hair inspiration and presentation pointers!
It’s always great to get tapped on the shoulder by your peers to have a natter and answer your questions about our new Gold Class brand. Lovely to see you all and make sure you come and see us on Stand D6 – tickets are on sale now and add a diary note to head to the Bridal Stage on Sunday at 12pm as we show you how to transform three models & maybe a celeb or two!
Highlight of the day had to be Roberto & Inanch spotting our Professional Hairdresser Mag Front Cover with Mischa Barton from November last year – it was huge and we couldn’t miss a selfie opportunity!
The journey home wasn’t bad too as we got an email to confirm we are FINALIST for this year’s Hair Awards with our Clip In extensions!!
Last year was most definitely great for us with the launch of our brand; establishing our hair as the number one choice for celebrities and seeing our Healthy Hair Days philosophy come to life. So we caught up with our founder Inanch Emir for a few New Year Resolutions to give us a hint of of what’s planned for the year ahead.
1) Introduce more colours to the range – ash tones are set to be big in 2015.
2) Make this the year the year we showcase Gold Class on a big stage – we’re talking the industry’s best exhibition and we’ll be there. Come see us at Pro Hair Live London as we unveil our system and hair for our fellow professionals; and follow Inanch & her team on stage as they create some amazing looks with her signature Glamorous style.
3) Spread the Healthy Hair Days message wide.
4) Enjoy being part of the Inanch London 10 years birthday celebrations – all this hard work has lead to the development of Gold Class so it’s definitely worth celebrating.
It’s going to be an amazing year for us so keep in touch to check we are ticking our resolutions off.
