Hooker & Young Darlington 5th Birthday Event

IMG_0298

On monday night, I was exclusively invited to Hooker and Young Darlington’s 5th Birthday Event! With five hair salon’s across the North East under their belt, it’s fair to say this duo have dedicated all their time in making a successful brand with winning over 20 hairdressing awards! Wow.

We had the whole place to ourselves to mooch around at businesses such as Stella & Dot and Arbonne. Some of the hairdressers even did tutorials on hair as well as beauty demonstrations by HD Brows!

As designated driver, they even made me mocktail so I could still join in on all the fun festivities! As we walked around the salon, the waiters even served us with little canapes! How delightful.

The duo, despite having five salons, still turn up to work everyday working with old and new clients! I think that’s true partnership that they still keep a close relationship with their clients! The event couldn’t of been successful without sponsors La Di Da magazineHoundgate Townhouse and their PR Claire Barber!

Hooker & Young 5th Birthday EventArbonne is a brand I am very familiar with, I have tried a couple of their collections and I especially love their primer. Alice the independent consultant who was at the event gave me a couple of samples and went through their latest products.

Kelly from HD Brows (from Hooker and Young’s Ponteland salon) even give me a free demonstration on my brows. It was fascinating how she did them, and I can honestly say it’s the best shape, wax I’ve ever had! She was so lovely to talk too and really took her time doing mine, as I find a lot of people rush their service but she was amazing. I’d definitely go get them done by her again!   Hooker & Young 5th Birthday Event Hooker & Young 5th Birthday EventHooker & Young 5th Birthday EventKatie, from Stella & Dot showed us their stunning summer collection of jewellery. I hadn’t heard of the brand till that evening but I’m really tempted to pick some stuff up! The quality was beautiful and elegant. She mentioned that a lot of celebrities wear the brand including Pixie Lott and Davina McCall! Prices range £15-£250.

At the end of the evening, we all received a luxury goodie bag (above) containing mini Kerastase hair products, mini Schwarzkopf hair products including oil and hairspray! I really enjoyed the venture up to Darlington for this event.

CONGRATS on 5 years Hooker and Young! Fantastic Event.
