So as most of you know, Clynol Profile Weekend 2013 took place on 16th and 17th June at Alton Towers. Firstly – What an awesome venue. Even without going into the park, the hotel its self is so cool. So many little qwerks to look at and explore! Good choice Clynol. And we were greeted by this in the hotel room, such a nice touch!
So, after getting up at 5.30am (ergh) and setting off at 7.30am, we finally arrive at about 10. This is the first time I get to have a real look at all the backstage antics. Models all having hair and makeup done, people rushing about the place.
I got to see some great people at work, including an ex-protégé team member. It was fascinating watching everyone doing their thing. I really enjoyed seeing them create something captivating and special. We got to watch the presentation and see all the hard work put together. The models all represented hair icons. There was a Florence (copper), Madonna (Blonde), Rhianna (red) and a Katy (violet). Two models for each icon. Each model showed off what the new Viton S range is capable off. From raspberry reds, orange coppers, blue violets and clean-cut blondes. We are taught about the new colours and how to use them to their full potential. I think they have really hit the nail with this one. It was a brilliant introduction to the new range and I’m really excited to get using it!
Me and the other prots (protégé team members) are going onto stage in the evening to be introduced as the 2013 team. Everyone’s a little nervous so we gulped a bit of vodka and redbull in the hotel room to settle the nerves. It. Was. Amazing! I felt so good, being cheered and clapped on stage. I tried not to look out at the many faces and got distracted by Troy’s impromptu rose petal shower.
Onto the food and the drinks, everyone got quite squiffy and had a great time. So many dance moves in such little time. It was really fun to mingle and meet people who are all linked by the Clynol brand. There are some really lovely people out there. I finally met Luisa who used to be on the Protégé team (2 years running.) I had read and heard a bit about her and she is so great! Its really cool to meet someone who has really benefited from the team. She now has her own salon in Kidderminster, and I hope it all goes well for her!
After catching some sleep, it was on with the roller coasters! I used to be terrified of them, but I know once its going I love them. It was so much fun!! Tiring though. I have an app on my phone that tracks your step and we did nearly 15,000. About 5 miles in total! But it was really worth it. I wish we can go every weekend.
Overall, an amazing weekend. I loved every second and I’m really looking forward to next year! ❤
