Team members from Rebecca Carr Hair Salon have been styling models for designers including Paul Costelloe, one of the most established names in British and Irish fashion.

This the second year that Rebecca Carr and Kelsey Catto have been invited to become part of the catwalk preen team at the fashion event, which is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious in the world.

The pair undertook a rigorous audition process to work alongside some of the best in the hairdressing business as part of the renowned ‘session team’.

During her first trip to the show last year, Rebecca who is the head stylist and owner of the salon, was assessed and classed as a ‘Grade A’ stylist.

She said that working in this kind of environment gives her a buzz and means big opportunities for her team.

Speaking from London Fashion Week, Rebecca explained: “I was absolutely delighted to style hair for Paul Costelloe this year as I have admired his work and designs for a long time.

“London Fashion Week is a unique and fast paced environment and provides fantastic opportunity to use a variety of techniques while remaining calm under pressure.

“Staff training and development is hugely important at the salon and involvement at this kind of event offers valuable experience to broaden skills and it’s also a lot of fun.”

Rebecca added: “Back home we are bowled over by the support our salon continues to receive.

“Last year we expanded to service our growing client base and we are planning another exciting announcement in 2018.

“We are also in the midst of a recruitment drive to bring in fresh talent to the Rebecca Carr family.

“We are currently recruiting for a stylist and assistants and are looking for enthusiastic people who love fashion to join the team.

“We go the extra mile to make sure we stand out from our competitors.

“Fresh ideas and services make sure we keep things interesting.

“London Fashion Week is exactly the kind of environment we love to immerse ourselves in to make sure we are at the forefront of our highly competitive industry. We hope we can continue to contribute at the event which helps us innovate and learn from our peers and like-minded, fashion forward hair and beauty experts.”
