Earlier this month, Shelley headed to the luxury Grand Real Santa Eulalia Resort in Portugal with her beloved milk_shake family for their annual milk_shake Summer Event.
The 3-day event that celebrates success and passion, featured an innovative Hair Show in the theme of the 70’s, an informative Look & Learn session with live demonstrations by Shelley, the other milk_shake Ambassadors and the Creative Team.
The Hair Show ‘Blue Velvet‘ opened the 3 day event and took the audience on an atmospheric journey through the 70’s, from Psychedelic to Punk to Androgony and Disco. After introductions by milk_shake’s Education Managers Becky Wardrop and Ricky Younis, Shelley was the first to the stage to wow the 250 strong crowd with her Psychedelic theme.
Shelley delivered a set that took the audience on a trip back to the early 70’s showcasing multicoloured afros, coloured crimps and flower power. Shelley inspired the crowd throughout and took time to explain her creations, ‘My afro inspiration was based on psychedelic wallpaper that would grace every 70’s home, with a mix of colours and ‘trippy’ effects and the stunning pink crimped design was inspired by adverts for soft drinks with lots of colour pop and stripes going across the page, with braiding added for texture’
The show-stopping moment came as the evening drew to a close and the models set the stage alight with an incredible 70’s dance off that had all guests on the edge of their seats embracing the vibe and applauding the awesome fusion of hairdressing, dancing, music and team work that they had just witnessed.
THE Q & A
After a evening of celebration, the Creative team returned to the stage the following day for a Live Look & Learn followed by a Q&A with Shelley, David, Julian and Andrew. The reaction from all guests has been insane with so many private and personal messages congratulating Shelley on her success.
‘I am incredibly fortunate to be part of this awesome brand. I am fiercely passionate about milk_shake: the brand is growing at such a rapid rate and we are fortunate to have adopted a milk_shake family who are full of passion, creativity, loyalty and most of all support for each other. This is only the beginning’
