There is a moment in your life when you feel you are becoming invisible. This happened to me when I moved to Cornwall 8 years ago. I’d always thought of myself as memorable (not being a ‘shrinking violet’ type for starters,) but people I met never seemed to remember me and as I’ve got a really good memory for faces this infuriated me and made me think I’d definitely become so middle-aged that I was no longer visible to anyone and that I’d become unattractive and plain boring.
So 8 years on – I had my moment of fame and glamour when, last Sunday, I went out on stage at the Royal Albert Hall to present a charity hair show, the Alternative Hair Show, in front of 5,500 people. I’ve long supported the charity, which raises money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and the company I work for, TIGI, is a charity sponsor, whilst our International Creative Director, hairdressing icon, Anthony Mascolo, is worldwide president.
Being visible and feeling fabulous
Well at the end of the day I wasn’t expecting anyone to comment on me –as there were amazing hair shows all night and masses of incredible models, but my Twitter and Facebook responses were lovely and coming in fast during the evening. And, all I can say is that it was a huge boost to the morale and I loved every moment of it. I have decided that I must be visible and that age is no handicap to feeling and being glamorous!
