Birmingham’s brightest brains turned out to celebrate summer at a city centre barbers this month - alongside a celebrity hairdresser.
Members of the Birmingham Law Society enjoyed style and grooming advice, entertainment, drinks and food courtesy of Everyman Barbers for their first summer social networking event.
The evening, held at the brand’s Temple Street store, was attended by celebrity hairstylist Adee Phelen, who was also celebrating the 16th anniversary since cutting David Beckham’s hair and creating a nationwide hairstyle craze that day.
Selfridges personal shopper Aaron Archer was also on hand to offer one-to-one advice of office styles to wear in the summer.
Brett Tonks, General Manager of Everyman Barbers said: “It was just a fantastic night and we were so proud to play host to the Birmingham Law Society for the first time. It was great to meet so many of Birmingham’s best legal brains and show them our barber shop - and we want to thank everyone who came along on the evening.”
Adee added: “I was delighted to have been invited to the event and also showcase my new product, Sknhead which has just been launched within Everyman Barbers across the country. It took years of development and is the next stage of my career, which I’m so proud. I’ve come a long way since getting noticed for the David Beckham haircut, and also to be back in Birmingham which is my hometown, is great.”
Regan Peggs, Director of the Birmingham Law Society thanked Everyman Barbers for the hospitality.
“It was always good for us to use new and exclusive venues for our networking events, to get together out of the office to network and then to also meet new faces. We shall definitely be doing this again soon and thank you to everyone for coming along,” he added.
The event, held on Thursday 5th July, was supported by Everyman Barbers, with food supplied by The Botanist, and photographs by Saul Morgan.
Also on the night, guests had the chance to win VIP Snow Patrol Tickets for the Arena in Birmingham, a £50 Gift Card and Personal Shopping experience with Selfridges’ personal shopper Aaron, and Sunday Lunch for two at Hotel Du Vin. Proceeds will be donated to the British Tinnitus Association and Headway Brain Injury Association
