All the backstage beauty gossip from our salon at Latitude festival 2013
Fri / Sat round up
The salon was absolutely rammed all weekend fully booked both days and we have had to turn people away – the artists at Latitude have loved the treatments – male hair cuts and massages are the most popular we have done dozens of Miners cosmetics makeovers on the girls getting them stage ready and we have got through buckets of Batiste dry shampoo treating stressed out festival locks and Nicky Clarke tease me backcomb in a bottle for extra va va voom and quiffage.
Eddie swung by the salon earlier and we talked nails nails nails !! He had the most magnificent nails which were created by Sophie Harris-Greenslade from The Illustrated Nail. Created with gel polish and free hand nail art they are literally a work of art… he is booked in for a massage and make up with us before his gig tomo – a bit of Miners Cosmetics eyeliner is exactly what he needs! We also gave him a massive bag of Miners make up to play with take him back to his glam make up 90’s days.
Jessie Ware popped in after her set wearing a funky black top and denim jacket to say hi and give us a hug – we met her in May in Derry at Radio Ones big weekend in May and sorted out her festival ready digits with a red carpet manicure gel polish in ooo la licious on her toes and expresso yourself on her fingers. She looked gorgeous today and she too had awesome nails – its all about the nails today! We have been rocking out the Red Carpet Manicure gel nails at Latitude – Rockstar neon pink being aptly the most popular !
The drummer michael and bass player jeremy came in today from everything everything today discussing the trials of touring and how much the massage is so needed for their constant tour buses, stage shows and their manager tells us sleeping in odd positions in random places ! They did 20 shows in June alone. I asked Jeremy how do they do it he said when they think about it now it’s difficult to think how they pulled that off its pretty full on but it doesn’t really feel like work it’s their crew that have to all the hard work really they are just doing something that they love every day. They loved their vanity van goody bags especially the batiste dry shampoo perfect for touring and the miners cosmetics make up is perfect to keep the other halfs happy 🙂
Bloc party popped in last night for hair cuts and their crew were loving our Nicky Clarke samples they stripped us bare ! They spent ages with us lounging in the Bean Bag waiting room relaxing before their set.
Igor from Daughter managed to secure the last massage slot of the day today the poor thing was knackered after relentless touring – one of his band members says he has what is know in the industry as ‘rock neck’ – too much head banging not enough warming up! Igor said sometimes they are so tired they end up falling asleep on planes dribbling not the best look… they fly to Oz in the morning for yet another gig – the rest of the band were gutted we couldn’t squeeze them in aswell – theres always next year boys ! and they took a fab goody bag of miners and nicky Clarke treats for the lead singer Eleanor – massive brownie points ! The drummer said after we handed them a can of Batiste as a consolation prize that hes never washing again ! nice 😉
Sun round up
The lovely Eddie Izzard rocked up to the salon today as promised for his Miners Makeover we used their brunette eyebrow pencil to define and shape his brows and some Miners Maxi mascara and black eyeliner to bring out his eyes ready for his set. He also had a relaxing hand massage whilst he was with us – we were so tempted to ask him about the rumours flying around site about him going for London mayor!
We had the entire crew in for a bit of everything ! Amir had a beard trim and hair cut, Tommy on vocals had a trim and Joel had a relaxing man manicure… The girl singers Becky and Sinead had hair styling we used some Nicky Clarke Weightless treatment with argan oil to smooth Beckys locks and protect them and finishing off with some Batiste XXL plumping powder to give her some extreme body for their stage show whilst Sinead had Nicky Clarke heat protector sprayed on her curls which were created using Nicky Clarke irons and finished off with some Batiste shine spray and Nicky Clarke tease me. We used Goddess Miners eyeshadow to create a beautiful smokey eye on Becky and finished it off with Voluptulash Miners extreme mascara for extra va va voom. Becky had the longest eyelashes ever – stunning ! Some of the team popped round to watch the band and the make up looked amazing on the big screens.
The band got a bit of a ticking off by their manager as they were almost late on stage as they were with us – they even had to run their mikes over to them in the salon.
As I am typing this Becky has just dashed back ionto the salon as they came off stage to re blow dry her hair of all the sweat ! and stick in some hint of colour blonde batiste – which should stop it going greasy so they can celebrate in style later !
Howard and Guy had just landed with Rudimental from an amazing festival called Melt in Berlin where they both played together. Howard told us they have these giant cranes with strobes for stages and a beach behind each one – hashtag random. We chatted to both teams about Ibiza as Rudimental are flying out their to dj at privilege next week and Disclosure have been out there 4 times already this season. Howard said they loved Usuaahia but were disappointed that as a pool party you can’t jump in the pool. We were comparing notes on favourite clubs and the big garage come back and how much we are loving it – Disclosure played with the legendary EZ the other day – one of our favs. The boys looked dapper in black jeans, nike trainers and a green shirt. We gave them their first ever massages and they loved the goody bags for their girl friends Howard said we were bloody great!
