Vanity Van featured at Isle of Wight festival this weekend taking prime position on route between the campsite and the arena delivering an array of hair, make up, beauty and massage treatments to the festival goers.

 Vanity Van at Isle of Wight

Vanity Van had an awesome weekend at Isle of Wight Festival 2014, and loved being back at one of their all time favourite festivals. The public lapped up being pampered and styled in the sun by the therapists who were armed with all the latest Batiste Dry Shampoo products. The baking sun brought in the happy festival goers in their droves so that they could achieve the latest festival trends, beauty looks and hair styles and was definitely the place to be seen at Isle of Wight.

Vanity Van was situated in the main thoroughfare through to the festival from the campsite so the punters could swing by on their way into the festival and see their favourite acts confident they were looking their best.

One of the biggest trends of the festival were plaits. Customers booked in in their droves for them in all shapes and sizes with the retro festival look featuring a braid along the crown being the most popular. Finished off with a bit of Batiste Conditioning Mist to tame flyaway’s and leave a sleek finish made it easy for the customers to look as glamorous at a festival as the celebrities.

Face painting as always was a very popular treatment with fans of the Red Hot Chili Peppers flocking in to get their face painted with the bands logo and glittery chillis on the face. Saturday saw a sharp intake of England fans wanting the England flag face paint, ready for the World Cup game later that evening. And florals were huge this weekend with many fans sporting gorgeous floral headbands and having face and body art to match.

Isle of Wight also gave Vanity Van a chance to see some of their celebrity customers perform, Katy B and her dancers who are regular customers tore up the Big Top on Friday night. Her high energy set had everyone jumping around.

And let’s not forget the boys we saw many male customers throughout the weekend for male hair styling and even manicures. Man of the moment John Newman gave a superb performance on Saturday afternoon after having Batiste’s XXL Plumping Powder used on him at an earlier event so that his bouffant hair would hold up for his performance. He certainly knows how to rock that quiff!

All the celeb beauty gossip from Vanity Vans backstage salon at Radio Ones Big Weekend 2014

150 150 Vanity Van

  

Vanity Vans backstage salon featured at Radio Ones Big Weekend this weekend taking prime position right outside the dressing rooms to deliver some quick fix treatments for the hardworking artists, celebrities and presenters.

 Radio Ones Big Weekend Glasgow 2014Vanity Van backstage salon

The Vanity team conducted dozens of hair styling’s and cuts. Makeovers were also in hot demand from men and women alike before they went on stage. They also offered a array of essential beauty treatments such as manicures and some much needed massages for those tour battered bodies.

Saturday welcomed the momentous first meeting of chart topping princesses Lily Allen and Lily Allen kissing Katy BKaty B – both Vanity Van regulars they both popped into say hi – Lily was Vanity Van’s first ever celeb client at Glastonbury in 2010 when she popped in with Jamie Winstone for eyelashes. Lily and Katy posed for the shot of the weekend for Alix with Lily planting a huge smacker on Katy! Lily loved it so much she put it on her own instagram and it went instantly viral.

 

Lily allens nailsBoth Vanity Van regulars, Lily, who had just arrived from a gig in Aberdeen, told the team that shes loving being back on the stage. We loved her festival themed rainbow nails, flashes of pink in her hair and gold glitter swipes dotted with diamantes provided by Vanity Van. Katy sported some gorgeous large ringlet curls and rainbow eye make up cutely matching Lily’s nails. Katy B and Lily were gutted they were on the stage at the same time as they were dying to appear on stage together – maybe that’s one to watch… We later came to the rescue when Katy B had a wardrobe malfunction and needed some safety pins!

Harry Styles One Direction

Lily Allen also tweeted from the event that The legendary Mr Harry Styles from One Directionwas spotted by her having extensions fitted into his luscious locks backstage mmmnnn… The man himself swung by the salon and we managed to get a wicked v sign pic and a cheeky selfie with him, we’ve heard One Direction are big Batiste fans! Dan the lead singer from Bastille later ran off excitedly with the rest of his band to catch One Direction on stage when VV tweeted this it went viral instantly with over a thousand retweets and favourites – striking a chord of horror from Bastille fans and joy from 1D fans – hilarious. 

Harry Styles selfie

 

 

 

 

 

Conor and Brad from the Vamps post massage

 

The Vamps booked in for much needed massages to soothe aches and pains from throwing themselves around on stage. Tristan joked that Vanity Van delivered “service with a smile”! and Brad said his experience with Louise our masseuse was “unreal”. Poor Bradley had lost his voice and had to communicate with the team using facial expressions. Tinie Tempah as always also loved the idea of a nice relaxing massage and told us how its such a shame he never has the time to get one. Tinie later borrowed their tweezers – no idea what for the team didn’t like to ask….

 Paolo Nutini and Alix from Vanity Van

Paolo NutiniThe VV team bumped into the gorgeous Paolo Nutini backstage who’s number one album Caustic Love has escalated him to a whole another level of awesome. He was laughing and joking with Vanity Van pal Maverick Sabre about when they last met at the Brit awards and drank a shed load of tequila to the point where no one could understand anything either of them were saying! Which they laughed was probably a good thing… Paolo said he was knackered from his sold out tour and ached from sleeping on the tour bus so the team gave him a good rub down just before he hit the stage. The team bumped into him in the VIP bar afterwards and they are cooking up a possible face painting tribute to an unexpected character at Glastonbury so watch this space….

 Rita Ora and Grimmy outside salonRita Ora sported a new colourful corn roll hair style and white platform trainers with red strip lights. Her dancers all came in for hair and make up earlier in the day. VV created big voluptuous curls and spritzed with Batiste Pixie Lott fun and floral to give them a hair refresh. The make up artists created sexy smoky eyes and dark pouty lips to match Rita’s recent album cover. She also came down on the Saturday to support her on/off fella Calvin Harris.

 

Pharrell williamsPharrell Williams was sporting his signature hat and gave the team a lovely wave on the way into the backstage. He had a bevy of stunning dancers with him who rocked amazing style. He had an absolutely giant body guard and he even got escorted to the porta loo backstage. The VV team had quite a few of his dancers and his awesome bassist Adam in for much needed massages after their energetic set. Fearne Cotton and Edith Bowman were joking with them outside the salon that if they had had a couple of dressing gowns they would have joined them on stage! 

 James lead singer of the Klaxons post massage

 James the lead singer of the Klaxons having his hair styledThe Klaxons all had massages and lead singer James had an emergency quiff restyle before he hit the stage in a bacofoil style shirt. Alix bumped into them as they were heading off on a buggy to the stage and they were all singing the banana splits theme at the top of their voices!

 

 Luke lead singer of the Kooks with Alix

Hugh from The Kooks nicked the teams face paints and pretended to stamp it on Luke’s the lead singers face. The team talked at length with Luke the lead singer whilst he had a Batiste XXL Plumping Powder hair makeover and when Alix asked him where they had been for the last few years he laughed and told them it’s a shame the music industry is so fickle as it’s really hard to get played on the radio but they are glad to be back and that their new album is by far the best they have ever done.

Luke lead singer of the Kooks having Batiste XXL plumping powder applied for extra volume

 

Chris Martin from Coldplay popped up randomly in catering on the Sunday as little did we know he was due to appear on stage with Kings of Leon on the Sunday their set on Saturday night was mind blowing with confetti cannons, fireworks and helicopters with little flashing lights on during the stars track – and Chris martins arm muscles we swear are getting bigger by the day phwoar!

 

John NewmanSam Smith and John Newman were loving the Batiste XXL plumping powder and spray we gave them for their infamous quiffs. John told us he had came over all emotional on stage – when they asked him why he said ‘shit just got real didn’t it’ such a sweet heart… he deserves every bit of adoration.

Sam Smith 

Right at the end of the day Matt the lead singer of the 1975 booked our masseuse to sort out his appalling lower back pain – a medic came in to give him painkillers whilst Sam was massaging him and told him the reason he is getting the pain is hes too skinny. So VV’s therapist demonstrated he needs to start doing squats to build his bum muscles up poor boy!

Barry from Twin Atlantic post Batiste hair stylingRoss the bassist from Twin Atlantic was overheard talking about how he woke up in Taipei with a tattoo and VV had the whole band in for massages and most of them for haircuts – Barry their Bassist particularly loved his Batiste XXL plumping powder hair do. Ross had a beard trim to tame those split ends!

 

Matt from Gorgon City having his Batiste hair makeoverGorgon City had a huge entourage with them and were regular guests to the salon, the whole team pre booked last week before their set, Kye joked his hair and makeup were class and Laura Welsh who sings their song Here for you thought her styling was wicked. They told us how Radio 1 is their only big live show this year as it’s too expensive to transport all the singers with them. But they will be at Glastonbury playing a small live set in Silver Haze during Friday daytime & Sunday night smashing out a DJ set in Shangrila Hell Zone with Skream.

 

Katy Perry received a gift bag full of Batiste products when her entourage visited us. Her costume designer said how she’s still grounded and down to earth; adding that she even sleeps in their tour bus when they’re away!

Becky Hill singer with Wilkinson having Batiste XXL Plumping powder applied 

Becky Hill who is smashing the charts right now visited the team for a Batiste hair styling. Lauren gave her big bouncy curls creating body with Batiste’s XXL plumping powder and using some Batiste conditioning mist to define the curls and tame any fly always. She said she loves the statement red lip at the moment. She appeared with Wilkinson on stage for their huge hit Afterglow and she told us she’s uber excited for the songs on her new album to be released as they have been in production for the last 2 years.

Becky Hill singer with Wilkinson after her Batiste hair styling 

Josh lead singer of You me at Six playing footie backstageYou Me at Six were seen larking around playing football backstage after Luke had a quick buzz cut that’s one way to while away the time waiting to go on stage.

 

Jameela Jamil after having her Batiste hair stylingThe Radio One presenters were all out in force as usual with Jameela Jamil popping in for a Batiste hair styling, Edith Bowman for some tannage for her pins, Grimmy swung by for a quick hug his hair looked awesome and he told the team he’d just had a blow dry especially. Matt Edmonson had his usual annual massage with the team and Greg James and Fearne Cotton came and chilled out in the bean bag waiting room on Saturday nicking all the haribos in great need of a sugar rush after their crazy day of interviewing…

 

Ed Sheeran

Vanity Van’s next tour stop is the world famous Glastonbury Festival in June where they have a huge salon catering for thousands of festival punters over the weekend. They will also be featuring backstage at Leeds festival, Global Gathering and Latitude. Press invites will be sent out before each event so you can book in to come see the team in person and work with them on features.

Vanity Vans backstage salon tours 4 cities in 4 days with 1xtra Live 2013

150 150 Vanity Van

 

The third of its kind the 1xtra Live tour celebrates the biggest talents in Dance, R&B and Hip Hop taking us on a whistle stop tour of 4 cities in 4 days.

We had our backstage salon set up in the heart of the action each day working closely with the artists, their crews and the 1xtra presenters

 

1xtra Live Tour 2013Bournemouth

The 1xtra live tour kicked off in style with a dance fueled energetic lineup featuring hit makers Chase and Status performing a DJ set, Digital Sound boy, Katy B and the epic Sub focus showcasing his Torus stage show – mind blowing visuals to accompany a hard hitting set.

 

Digital Sound Boy had the likes of Radio 1’s BTraits DJing and Elizabeth Troy singing both of who came in to see us for multi treatments. We styled Elizabeth with some jazzy Miners Mango Tango nails and treated her locks with some Batiste XXL plumping spray to give her some on stage bounce. BTraits, whos gorgeous lilac locks were due to be dyed the following day to a stunning purple, we created soft curls and touched up her make up with some delicious Miners Mood gloss to give her that perfect pink pout.

Other visitors backstage included Katy B and her dancers. Katy being the perfect candidate for a spritz of Batiste Hint of Colour Red she asked us to plait her hair into a French style double plait. Her dancers all had hair restyling’s and make up retouches before they hit the stage for an energetic set.

We even got to rub down man of the hour Nick Douwma, otherwise known as Subfocus. He was a total gent and declared our masseuse Stacey was “amazing”…

 

London

Londons Hammersmith Apollo was the next stop and what a venue this was – a complete rabbit warren of tunnels, winding staircases and hidden rooms. The venue was literally buzzing with the artists and stars who had come down to support the tour.

1xtra live tour mobile beautyTues featured stella producer Naughty Boy and an entourage of no less than 45 people. Organisers put them in their own huge room complete with pool table although there were concerns this wouldn’t contain everyone and their antics. Famous faces such as Professor Green, Emilie Sande, John Newman were on hand to support the A class collaborator. Naughty Boy himself swung by for a beard trim and a hair cut before he hit the stage looking dapper to face the crowds.

Other visitors into the salon included the controversial Angel Haze, who admitted she hadn’t slept for three days. She came in with best friend Charlotte for massages to take the edge off. Later jumping into the crowd during her set to watch her own singers perform on stage.

Sean Paul in true epic rapper style had no less than 8 bottles of Courvoisier brandy stashed in his dressing room – which we are sure resulted in one serious after party.

Liverpool

Next stop was the Liverpool Echo arena where the star of the show was undoubtedly Nelly – the muscle man didn’t fail to disappoint with hit after hit and was the man everyone wanted to talk to or have a picture with backstage. Such a formidable presence and he took Liverpool by storm hitting club Medication with John Newman and 1xtra presenters such as Sarah Jane Crawford in tow after his set. They pulled an all nighter we believe rolling in first thing the following day to the Liverpool BBC radio studios to tell all to Grimmy for his morning show.

1xtra live tour mobile beautyRobin Thicke was an interesting character his harem of infamous dancers all excitedly popped in to see us for products and to chat about touring. He gave a smooth performance which was in stark contrast to the other acts of the evening.

 

John Newman – this man has an amazing hair cut – we would love to get our hands on it. He is a serious mover on stage pulling some amazing shapes. They made a huge night of it – he even admitted to playing bowls with wine bottles and fruit in his dressing room.

The surprise guest was the talk of the night – everyone including ourselves was convinced it was going to be Pharrell – but we couldn’t be disappointed when we discovered it was going to be Tinie Tempah – he gave an energetic 10 minute set which got the crowd going wild.

Iggy Azealea as always looked stunning, a few of her dancers popped in for nail treatments and products – she was a naughty girl though and swore on stage so some of her footage had to be side stepped….

1xtra live tour mobile beautyIt was lovely to bump into Grimmy again and he had great fun backstage and bopping away with us all to Nelly at the side of the stage. His morning show the next day was an awesome round up of all the performances and he had everyone in for interviews and laughs – they should have done this for every location!

 

Leeds

Our favourite night of all had to be the Leeds arena. An epic line up of Rudimental, Wretch 32, Azealia Banks, Chronixx and Stylo G finished the tour with a bang.

Rudimental’s main producers Amir and Piers popped in for their regular trims which we finished off with a spritz of Batiste hint of colour dark brown to ensure they were stage ready even their new tour manager got involved with a beard trim! They told us all about their new tour which has just started and with oz already under their belts they are Hitting the uk hard these next two weeks finishing off with a big showcase at Brixton. Their singers Becky and Sinead weren’t there and they explained that’s because they need to rotate then to make sure they don’t damage their voices. The 20 strong team were in residence most of the day and even set up a studio in one of their dressing rooms so they could make some music whilst they were there ! Now that’s dedication..

There was a definite reggae tip on this day – Reggae is having a huge renaissance at the moment and I am Chronixx is at the forefront of this. He was celebrating his 21st birthday and was serenaded on stage by the crowd. Being a Rasta he celebrated with extra Aubergine Bake provided by catering.

1xtra live tour mobile beautyWe had the gorgeous Yasmin Evans and Tiny T 1xtra breakfast presenters swing by for chats. We beautified Yasmin with a Miners Molten manicure and some Miners bright red fluro gloss. Shakka also came in for his regular massage and at one point had a fun three way involving a simultaneous manicure, massage and ear nibble from the lushcious Yasmin.

A last minute request from the BBC saw us ageing up 1xtra DJ Charlie Sloth for a time machine skit for the red button footage. This was an unusual use for Batiste dry shampoo but it worked – top tip for Halloween…

1xtra live tour mobile beautyWretch 32 was his usual gentlemanly self his crew are always up for a laugh and we had his drummer Luke in for a full body rub down and a hair cut before he hit the stage for a seriously energetic performance. His singer Coco also came in for some stage glitz and we used Miners Gold dip and define to highlight her eyes. We even caught up with Wretch and Stylo G at the after party at Chillies where he was sipping neat Disaronno and boogieing away to Toddla T’s set.
