How privileged I felt to walk into the London studios where so many great TV shows are filmed on a rainy Monday morning carting my hair kit in with me to style the hair on the shoot for the Pride in London campaign video!
We shot on a green screen which has its technical difficulties for a hairstylist but I feel like a dab hand thanks to shooting the campaign a few years back in a similar format at the Sky studios - and once again I was wowed by the experience of meeting so many amazing people and a few familiar faces! I knew then that April was going to be a fun filled month!
When I arrived at Charing Cross station on 22nd April I could hear the cheers, wondering why the tube was so packed and as the cheers became nearer I realised - the London Marathon! It's always been a dream of mine since a little girl to run the London Marathon .... but not this year.
This year I was headed to the Charing Cross theatre for the Pride's Got Talent cabaret final, to style the hair and wigs for the breathtaking finalists of this incredible show, alongside my partners in crime Seventa makeup academy with Juan Lopez leading makeup, together we provided glitzy glamour sparkles curls and shine and wow what an amazing day!
The following Sunday 29th April I was back again this time for the Prides got talent Pop final!
Each winner will be performing on the main stage at Trafalgar Square on the 7th of July at Pride in London before roughly 15k people!
On that day I will be in my usual spot backstage in the VIP lounge as lead hair for the 4th year with Juan creating the hair and makeup for the main stage Acts.
I'm so lucky to be involved in this amazing event and the lead up to it!
Not only do I rub shoulders with celebs and stars from the music TV and theatre industry, I have made so many amazing friends along the way.
And True people, people who have battled to be accepted for their sexuality or gender and this festival is about having the right to just be yourself no matter your colour weight or sexual preference, real people, real lives, real issues.
Not to mention so many artistic creatives that inspire and bring so much love fun and hope into everyday.
Why wouldn't I love this amazing opportunity to create the hairs for all the Pride in London events?
Thought for the month - Be true to yourself
Much love T 🌈
