Shabby Chic Hair Boutique Festival

We caught up with Shabby Chic Hair Boutique in Wales, after salon owner, Sarah Louise Lane, and her team ran their very own, in-salon festival! We were so excited about it we had to write a blog…

What inspired you to fundraise for The Hairdressers’ Charity?
We wanted to support a charity that was relevant to the industry, something that would pay back into the industry that we work so hard in. We saw a write up on The Hairdressers’ Charity in one of the industry magazines and decided that supporting hairdressers in need would be a great cause for us to support.

What ways have you been fundraising?
We transformed both our Hair Salon and our Beauty Salon, situated across the road, into a Festival for the day.

Clients bought a ticket which was a Festival lanyard that was used for entry into both Salons. Clients received a goody bag on arrival with gifts that were donated to us from our suppliers, and we did festival hair, makeup and nails for all who attended. Everyone in the area had space buns, glitter partings and glitter make-up – it was like V Festival!

Stations were set up around the Salon demonstrating our variety of products and services that we offer in-Salon and we had a bake-off competition, Hook a Duck and a raffle with prizes donated to us from local companies and our suppliers.

Brands that donated items for the day, included GHD who donated 120 roll bags to go in the goody bags, Xen-Tan gave us a tanning and exfoliation pack for our raffle, Racoon gave us 100g of hair for use on the day, OPI, and Elite Luxuries LTD supplied samples to us. Thank you to all our suppliers for supporting our fundraiser!

How successful was your event?
We had such a great day! We are so pleased with the amount we raised (£998.32) for such a great cause. Everyone enjoyed and the event was such a great success! Thank you to all our clients for their support on the day.

Do you have any plans in the future for more events?
After the success of this event we hope to plan another event soon. Watch this space!

What do you love about fundraising?
Fundraising is a great way of getting our clients involved in the Salon in a different and fun way to your usual Salon experience. Our clients are very supportive and loved the way we transformed the Salon into a Festival!

What are your top tips for a successful fundraiser?
Plan early in advance and allocate jobs to everyone! Make sure you use all your marketing tools to advertise and publicise your event as soon as you can. Also, make sure all staff know about the Charity and its aims, so that they are armed with answers when asked by clients about the Charity.
