After a good 6 weeks converting the Lolo & Co. Van into a workable and totally transportable salon space by the Butta boys and their pals, we had a deadline of the 12th of December where we had a booking in Aldgate, London to do hair and makeup for a group of ladies before their Christmas Party. Apart from a minor mishap with me bumping the top bumper...doh! (Check the height Jen!) it went like a dream.
Jim from Butta came with us to check everything on the 'van' side would go smoothly, which it did. Myself and Becki did hair and makeup fl=following a tight schedule of 30 minutes per person. We had Helen (Glittermasque) assisting us with timings and ensuring things ran smoothly as well as pouring out the Prosecco plus I think she was happy to have a little nosy and see how the van would work.
We are so chuffed with that first event. Everything that I had envisioned the space to be able to do, it did! The reaction from the clients was amazing as well.
We took it out on NYE as well and had a blast in it. Its such a cozy but deceptively large space. Now to concentrate on the diary/calendar for 2015/2016.
With huge thanks to Butta Ltd, Darren Moore the Mechanic, Ross Stafford the spark, Mr Rustic the chippy!
