Robin James Oscars
Hollywood glitz and glam came to Bournemouth on Saturday 12 January 2013 Robin James Aveda Salon group arrived in town for their Oscars themed awards party. Robin James who have branches in Bristol, Dorchester, Sherborne and Poole Quayside, put on their glad rags and more than 100 partied the night away with a 3 course dinner, awards ceremony and dancing until the small hours.
Robin felt it was “… fantastic to have the whole company under one roof to celebrate our achievements of the past year and recognise those individuals who have made a real difference. It’s my way of saying thank you to my great team. We had a lot of fun”.

Princes Trust Fundraising Party at Robin James Poole
We were delighted when our client Tea Colaianni chose to plan a fundraiser to support The Princes Trust in our Poole salon last week. Guests were treated to makeup, Replenishing Eye treatments and nail taster sessions along with a facial workshop and hair demonstrations. Tea raised over £1100! At a time when almost 1 million young people are unemployed, Tea’s support will play a key role in enabling the trust to reach out to 55,000 young people this year, helping them to get back into education, employment or training and build a future for themselves. The proceeds from the event will support a young person through a life-changing programme, giving the skills and confidence to succeed, as well as support from a role model – something many young people have never had before.
MASTERJAM 2012 update
In September we announced Beth, our stylist from Bristol, as our ‘Superstar of the Salon’. As a reward, we sent Beth off to the Berlin Masterjam for two days. Beth attended The Show where international artists inspired the audience with their technical and creative talent. She also took part in various educational workshops run by industry experts. Here are some snaps from Beth’s trip!

The British Hairdresser of the Year Awards – behind the scenes at the photo shoot
A hairdressing photo shoot can be eventful day. Sometimes for the wrong reasons! Hairdressers are high octane individuals who sometimes allow their creative energy to boil over. Make up artists can be impossible. The models can be a tricky breed too, so imagine all those characters working in a studio, under pressure and the clock ticking. Hairbrushes, lipstick and anything else to hand can get thrown out of the proverbial pram. Not a pretty sight I can assure you. Let me introduce you to the RJ shoot yesterday. A session shoot with 5 models, 3 hair stylists including me, Helen from Sherborne and Paul from Sherborne/Dorchester, Nick (make up) Lucy McLeod (photographer) and her assistant. Not forgetting David who was on hand with the clothes styling. I for one have never been involved in a shoot that ran so smoothly. If the results are influenced by how well a team works together then we will win the awards. If we don’t scoop the silverware,we will have already achieved something special. I am so very proud of what my team created yesterday and how they achieved it. Thank you one and all. And good luck too!! Robin
