It was a different kind of event taking place between the warehouse-style walls of Edwards and Co. Sydney. Jaye Edwards and his Sydney team invited a list of other salons to “join him and his team to start a new type of conversation”. As such, a bevy of hairdressers showed up to party in the spirit of community and collaboration.
Held on November 21st at Edwards and Co.’s Surry Hills location, the vast collection of salons in attendance included Bixie Colour, Viva La Blonde, Barney Martin, Allure Hair Bar, Studio B, Oscar Oscar Paddington, Que Colour, Grace Roby, Hair Cartel, District Salon and Neon Beauty. Representatives from the media as well as bloggers joined in on the fun.
Set against the backdrop of the salon’s unique graffiti walls, guests enjoyed drinks and canapés as they celebrated the incredible camaraderie of our industry. The aim was to create a forum for hairdressers to talk and share ideas, and while it is quite rare for a salon to open up its doors in order to host these discussions, we think it showed just why these gatherings should take place more often.
Judging by the success of the night, Edwards and Co. may have started a trend. With Jaye taking to the floor to address the crowd, and the guests networking throughout the night, the event showcased the beauty of conversation.
The holiday season is the perfect time to celebrate our industry, and with the New Year approaching, we hope the vow to host more salon socials will be on several salon resolution lists. Well done to Edwards and Co. for getting the ball rolling.
