Barrie Blogs – Our Hairspray Experience

Leave a Comment

If you haven’t yet been to see Hairspray the musical, what are you waiting for?! It’s an absolutely amazing production currently running at Curve theatre. As soon as I heard the musical hit was coming to the city, I knew we had to get involved!

First off, we provided customers with a limited edition can of hairspray for a small donation to the Curve Cares campaign which raises funds and awareness for a host of Leicestershire based charities. Tucked away inside two of the cans are tickets which means you have won Curve admission to watch the show and a free blow dry from us. Just call me Willy Wonka of the hair industry!

On the opening night of Hairspray, stylists from the Barrie Stephen team went over to Curve and set up styling stations so that the audience could indulge in some fab hair creations to really get into the spirit of the musical. We had so many people come and visit the team both before the show and during the interval, the atmosphere was amazing! There was a variety of styling from Annie, Sean, Giannis, Kelly and George. We created plaits for little girls, elaborate updos, bouffons and backcombing for the adults, leading to lots of happy audience members with the professionally styled ‘dos.

You know I love a good musical and Hairspray did not disappoint. Featuring David Witts (of Eastenders fame) as teenage heartthrob Link Larkin, the performance is full of energy, colour and of course, big hair!

If you’re wondering what to do over the next couple of weeks, make sure you grab your tickets to Hairspray. Not only is it a treat for the whole family it’s also a great way to support Curve theatre, which has quickly become an important cultural icon in Leicester since opening its doors back in 2008.
