Syd Hayes and his magical mystery creative station #4

Full of dazzling spectacles, daring interactive experiences and deftly coiffed creations, the first ever Featured Artist LIVE event was held in London last month. Dreamed up by the night’s ringmaster, Syd Hayes, and sponsored by BaByliss PRO,  the evening followed a slightly twisted circus theme. Blending laughter and learning, it saw guests pushing creative boundaries while playing with hair in fun and fascinating new ways.

It’s getting hot in here…

We were so lucky with this zone as the gentleman we booked as a life drawing model was also a bit of an entertainer. Just as well, as I had him painted head to toe in spectacular colours before sending him out to face a bunch of boozy hairdressers! Luckily, nothing fazed him, and the gasps in the room as he emerged were great! We’d set up some easels and paper around this zone, and the audience had to paint the model using hair colour. Some of the art we got back was really creative, which was so rewarding as this was all about getting people to step out of their comfort zone and find their inner artist.
