Here’s to a beautiful summer!
Forget dishevelled hair and dirt in your nails – festivals will be BEAUTIFUL this summer. Vanity Van have announced the first confirmed dates of their festival mobile beauty salon summer tour. After a busy winter working on The X factor the Vanity Van team are more than a little excited that summer is just around the corner.
The highlight of the Vanity Van festival mobile beauty salon tour is their large-scale salon in the John Peel area at Glastonbury festival, June 24-30 2013. Vanity Van are Glastonbury veterans this being their fifth year on site and they are expecting once more a fully booked salon with more than 1,000 clients through the doors. Who knows what celebs will pop in at Glasto… previous years have seen Lily Allen, Jamie Winstone, Marina and the Diamonds, Jo Whiley and Groove Armada swinging by for treatments. They are also confirmed to work backstage with the artists at Radio One’s Big Weekend (May 24-26); Latitude (July 18-21); and Bestival (September 5-8). More dates will be announced shortly so get your press requests in today to secure your slot and talk to them about how you can work together to create some fun festival orientated beauty content.
In the past few years, Vanity Van has tended to the likes of the Lady Gaga, Mumford and Sons, Maccabees, DJ Fresh and Paulo Nutini in their backstage festival beauty parlour. They work with the best British brands and their salon is an oasis of calm and glamour amongst the madness of the festival background.
