The Trevor Sorbie Hampstead salon held a charity event on Sunday 18th May to raise money for Trevor’s 'My New Hair' charity, to which they donated £2,825. Local charity, The Anthony Nolan Ward at the Royal Free Hospital, a blood cancer and bone marrow charity, will also receive £1,000 from the salon.
Donating all their takings from the day, the salon also raised money through face painting and a bumper raffle (drawn by salon manager Bree Davie) which included 75 incredible donated prizes, such as signed football boots from Spurs player and client Jan Vertonghen, signed Jamie Oliver and Gok Wan cookbooks, artworks, electrical appliances, meals at local restaurants and luxury product gift sets.
A signature cocktail, created by Andy Seach of Bar-Fly UK, entitled 'The Sorbie Sling' and sponsored by Martin Miller’s Gin, was served to guests and will be available at the Covent Garden and Hampstead salons for the rest of the month. In keeping with the theme of Trevor’s 50 years in hairdressing, the team all wore a gold item of clothing, and a parade of models showcased the Art Team’s work, who had created updated versions of their favourite iconic looks from Trevor’s archive of work, including the Frizz, a beautiful sculptural shape, bamboo texture and a flame influenced colour. Troy Read, Floor Manager at the salon said,
It was a great success and we all thoroughly enjoyed being part of something so worthwhile. This event was equally special as it gave us a chance to celebrate Trevor’s 50 years of Excellence in Hairdressing.
