Event: Harris & Gibbs New Salon Launch

Harris and Gibbs Hair Salon in the Jewellery Quarter is known as an independent salon that does things a little differently. Quirky and creative, the salon is owned and run by Alex Gibbs and Chris Harris.

Moving closer to St Paul's Square, the new salon on Caroline Street opened on 28th July and I was lucky enough to be on the guest list.

The VIP launch was a chance to see the new premises, enjoy tasty treats from Lasan, blueberry Mojitos, watch hair demos and received a custom made hair mask.

The interior is very urban industrial chic, with exposed brickwork, pipes and a fabulous wallpapered bathroom. My favourite part is the glass cube where clients can sit down for a shampoo and head massage whilst all the while enjoying the massage chairs. There are even silver beaded curtains in between each basin to give guests a little privacy and help them relax even more in the chair.

Guests were given the choice of Blueberry Mojito Cocktail or Mocktails and Candy Corn shots to enjoy.

There was also a fabulous selection of Indian treats from Lasan on offer that went down a treat!

We were able to watch the lovely Selina model the Veronica Lake waves trend and also see a fishtail plait demonstration.

The girls also mixed up a custom hair mask for me and I can testify it left my hair super smooth and shiny!

I love the relaxed and urban feel of the new salon space and can't wait to come back for some Harris and Gibbs magic!

*With thanks to Harris and Gibbs for the invitation.

    1. Hi Zoe! It's really quirky in here you should definitely try it out :) Take a look at my blog post on the High Field Summer BBQ to see their work ;) x

  2. There are many activities that have been adopted in a number of corporate events NYC. These are made to encourage people to trust in their teammates and learn to make decisions with them, and not behind them.
