Working backstage over the last fifteen years at T In The Park and TRNSMT, Scotland’s hottest music festivals, Rainbow Room International were delighted to be called back to TRNSMT this year to tend to the hair of the artists.
Stylists from across all twelve of the Rainbow Room International salons attended the three day event. It took placeat Glasgow Green in Glasgow, Scotland. Here, there was a pop up salon backstage amongst the dressing rooms of the stars. This allowed for easy access and preparation before they took to the TRNSMT stages.
A vast number of artists visited the pop up salon over the weekend, including band members from Sam Fender and Ella Henderson on Friday, band members of Griff, The Fontaines D.C, The Snuts, CMAT, Foals, Medicine Cabinet, Bemz and George O’Hanlon on Saturday and band members of Wolf Alice, Nina Nesbitt, Mimi Webb and Easy Life on Sunday.
Some of the most requested looks over the weekend were fades and clipper cuts for the men. Then there was some long hair dressing and curling for the woman; also blunt cuts with sleek styling and braided. Some of the artists even experimented with colour with the help of Crazy Color Pastel Sprays. Many of the band members were also sporting one of the most on trend cuts of 2022 – the mullet. They had the Rainbow Room International team shape and perfect their cuts before heading on stage.
Raising Money for Charity
The Rainbow Room International team also helped retrieve signatures from the artists, having band members sign a guitar provided from from Guitar Guitar. This will later be auctioned to raise money for charity, Nordoff Robbins. This is the UK’s largest music therapy charity. It helps enrich the lives of people with life-limiting illness, disabilities or feelings of isolation.
Commenting on the weekend was David Nicolson, Director of Rainbow Room International’s Royal Exchange Square salon. He said: “After the recent upheavals it was fantastic to be at TRNSMT – an amazing spectacle of musical entertainment. These events provide us with exciting opportunities for our young team who were all delighted to be involved and to have a full on three days creating strong fashion hair work.”
