A couple of weeks ago I attended a glamorous evening of hair and fashion at Birmingham’s Topshop store in the Bullring. The event was to celebrate the launch of the Bad Apple Hair salon based in the store, and to get a chance to look at some of the latest arrivals in fashion, as chosen by the girls of the personal shopping team. It was a fun event that certainly brought colour and cheer to what was already a very grim January.
Topshop launched their personal shopping service last Summer, with the idea being that you could use it to help with a wardrobe update, to look for something specific for a special occasion, or even get together with a group of friends for a girly afternoon of fashion. The girls of the fashion department had put together some amazing transitional looks which focused on beautiful knitwear, wide legged trousers and jeans, and a couple of exquisite coats to remind us that although we are thinking of Spring, it is still very much Winter, and oh so cold with it.
Colour was very well represented, from the gorgeous yellow coat teamed with a jade green bag, to this season’s new lilac shade, ripped from the hands of 1980s bridesmaids, and now a seriously hot colour. I loved most of the picks, which were colourful and fun, although I think I would need a lot of persuading to give dungarees a go!
Following on from the fashion, the stylists from Bad Apple Hair were on hand to show us some styles that are going to be big news in 2018. They showed a range of hair styles and hair stories to suit every hair type. These ranged from low ponytails of the type sported by Gwyneth Paltrow, to mushed up coloured looks that are both directional, and low maintenance.
We were given a chance to have a good look around the shiny new salon, which is perfectly placed to combine shopping and pampering. The salon looks gorgeous, surprisingly more spacious than I would have believed, and with a contemporary look that is sure to prove popular with the cool crowd who love Topshop. The big screen showing videos is certainly a nice touch.
