Syd Hayes and his magical mystery creative station #3

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.

Roll up, roll up…

This zone was our version of a coconut shy.  All the wigs that my team had so painstakingly prepared were displayed on mannequin heads in a cabinet, and above them we’d hung lots of balloons filled with hair colour. Each participant was given two darts and they had to try and burst a balloon – thus exploding the hair colour all over the wigs.

My aim here was to teach people about wigs and wig prep – with the added element of creating our own live interactive piece of art together. So much time and effort went into creating the wigs and styling them, and I was pleased to see that everyone really enjoyed this zone.
