Behind the scenes

YEAR 2024




The sixth form leavers ball or prom is a huge event for many of our clients, marking the end of their school days and offering a great opportunity to celebrate before the start of exams. We offer ‘Prom Hair’ services at each of our six salons but this year we thought we’d share a few moments from the Ecclesbourne School Leavers Ball preparations at our Duffield salon.

From the moment they arrived we wanted the girls to feel excited about their evening ahead so our Front of House, Bonnie, greeted each client with a slide show of looks they might want to try, from red carpet ideas to celebrity styles.

Georgi, our very own model,  knew exactly what she wanted – a modern twist on the classic style that Veronica Lake fashioned in the 1940’s. Angel perfected this for her, using a Cloud Nine wand and pin curls finishing by brushing the curls out to create a more modern, tousled look.


Georgi also visited Katie at our Belper salon and opted for the smoky eyed, natural lip look that is completely on trend this season using Make Up by HD Brows.

Deesh, a Master Stylist at Duffield, is an expert at creating the most beautiful up-dos. This fish-plait chignon was created using the Kerastase Couture Styling ‘Mousse Bouffant’ to ensure a firm hold.

Prom hair advice…

1. It’s really important that your hair compliments your overall look so we always advise clients to describe what they are wearing in the evening, a photograph is event better!

2. Look for images of styles you might want to try. Even if the person in the photograph looks nothing like you, our Stylists will personalise the look to suit.

3. Wear a hooded top or something that you don’t have to pull over your head, you don’t want the style to drop before the ball.

4. Occasion hair should complement your unique style and personality, nobody one wants to arrive looking the same as someone else. Why not try something different to your everyday style – we have an album of inspirational prom hair looks on each of the salon iPads, please feel free to have a browse.


After an exceptionally busy day at Duffield everyone left with a goody bag full of glorious Kerastase, L’Oréal and Shu Uemura samples to take away and try, we hope you all had a great night!


Georgi modelled for us in the Grand Final of the L’Oreal Colour Trophy in London, having successfully passed through the photographic entry and regional final in Manchester. Georgi looked stunning on a the catwalk in front of over 2000 VIP guests, a bit of a change to being in the salon just a week before!
