Behind the scenes

YEAR 2024




Angel , Katie Humphries (Therapist at the Belper salon) and Bonnie-Belle Showers, our newest member at the Sally Montague Hair Group had a very interesting adventure this month when they got asked to do the hair and makeup for Atomic Kitten’s, Natasha Hamilton for a trailer being shot at the Guild Hall, for Derby Live’s Christmas Pantomime ‘Aladdin’.


This last minute opportunity was too good to resist and the girls were thrilled to have been chosen to take part. The day started in a hotel room where Angel and Katie beautified the already stunning Natasha Hamilton for her day of press interviews and filming. Angel’s bouncy blow dry was perfected using the TecniArt range of styling products to ensure the style lasted for the busy day ahead.



The Director of Derby Live’s version of ‘Aladdin’ was insistent that Natasha’s makeup had to be sexy and what is more sexy than a smoky eyed look? Katie complimented Natasha’s smoky eyes with a nude lip which is ideal for all types of occasions. This look is always effective and could always be vamped up with a deep red lipstick for an evening out. Due to prior appointments at the salons, Angel and Katie could not stay the entire day therefore Bonnie was on hand to help ensure the day went on without a hitch.


At Sally Montague Hair Group we used Make Up by HD Brows which has a great long lasting coverage, feels light on your skin and creates fantastic results. The trailer was filmed at the guild hall theatre and touch-up’s were necessary throughout the day due to the hot lighting and long hours for the actors. Not only did we do the touch ups for Natasha but it was also important to make sure that the men had no shine on their faces whilst filming, therefore Bonnie was on stage with the cameraman making sure that the other well known faces such as Dan Osbourne and Richard Nevil and the rest of the cast were camera ready.
