The annual Christmas Gathering at Q Hair and Beauty has become one of the highlights of the social calendar in and around Chichester and this year’s event, the seventh, was the biggest and best ever.
It was also a spectacular, with the traditional ‘snow’ cascading from the front of the historic townhouse which houses Chichester’s premier, multi-award-winning salon and attracting the attention of passers-by.
Almost 100 guests attended the colourful gathering and tickets are so sought-after that the first one was sold back in March! It’s a stunning evening which is designed as an enjoyable occasion for the Q team and their clients to get into the Christmas spirit, with prosecco on arrival and delicious canapes that look as good as they taste.
Demonstrations and workshops were held on every floor of the beautiful old building and this year the focus was on styling solutions, trade secrets and top tips. Consultants were there from premier brands Moroccan Oil, Paul Mitchell, GHD and Olaplex.
On the beauty side, demonstrations included hot stones massage, make-up and a Clarins’ workshop on top beauty products.
“It was a brilliant evening, the best we have ever had and a lovely way to celebrate the fantastic year we have had,” said Dawn Lawrence, Q’s managing director. “A lot of the guests are regulars so it has become a real social gathering where people really enjoy getting together again and this year we had some new guests as well who thought it was a fabulous evening.”
Being a strong contributor to the city of Chichester, snow fell blissfully fell to the street from a snow machine setting the scene, celebrating both the start of the festive season and late night shopping!
