As official sponsors of the Hairspray UK musical at the Curve Theatre in Leicester, Barrie Stephen Hair added their special hairdressing touch to the press night this week on Tuesday the 15th of September.

It wasn’t only the smash hit show that guests and the local press could look forward to, as Barrie put on a pop-up salon pre-show where four stylists were on hand offering hair styling to everybody as they waited for the show to start which went down a storm, with guests queuing up to sit in the hot seat! In keeping with the Hairspray theme, plenty of 60’s inspired styling was being created with glamorous beehives, Hollywood waves and lots of volume.


Each guest that came by were also gifted a Barrie Stephen goodie bag full of Schwarzkopf Professional products. Barrie welcomed his VIP guests, including X-Factor winner Sam Bailey who visited the pop-up salon for a speedy spruce-up, with performances from a live Motown band and complimentary drinks in the VIP lounge as they relaxed and mingled, the excitement for the show building.


Hairspray the Musical, based on the 1988 film, is currently into its 10 day stint at the Curve theatre for second time, launching a brand new UK tour. Starring Tony Maudsley from ITV’s Benidorm, Claire Sweeney and Blue Peter’s Peter Duncan, it hosts a star studded cast.

Barrie Stephen says, “I absolutely love being involved with this fantastic show! I’m thrilled to be a sponsor for the second year running and I love supporting the Curve and seeing the local press get involved. And of course, I was proud to see my incredible team making the guests look fabulous ready for the fabulous show!”
