The Proms Season Calls For Great Hair

The first event of the Proms season is coming up on July 13th, with a live Proms edition of Radio 3's program In Tune at Imperial College Union. Proms is a British icon, that annual event that features classical music concerts and lectures for everyone, from the novice to classical music to the most discerning of listeners.

The July series of Proms goes through to July 31st, with three concerts, the last one being Prom 23: Havana Meets Kingston at Royal Albert Hall. This event brings together Cuban and Jamaican musicians for a concert combining reggae, dub, dancehall, salsa, and Afro-Cuban in a fusion of sound that is decidedly different from the usual Proms fare of Stravinsky and Debussy. The end of the 2018 season is September 8th, when there are simultaneous events at Imperial College Union, Hyde Park, and Royal Albert Hall.

What does Proms have to do with hair? Maybe nothing, maybe everything. If you plan to don jeans and tee for an evening of listening to some delightful music in Hyde Park – if you’re travelling, you might take in a concert at Titanic Slipways in Northern Ireland, Colwyn Bay in Wales, or Glasgow Green in Scotland – then the extent of thinking about your hair is whether it’s brushed and will stay out of your face in a breeze.

But if you're like us, you enjoy an opportunity to give yourself a sophisticated look that matches the music you plan to enjoy. What goes well with a suited and booted escort than a lovely summer dress and swept-up hair or a messy bun? You've got this covered, whether it's a ballerina but to a low ponytail on long hair, you can look stylish and elegant with minimal fuss. Needless to say, if you want a hand with your hair, we've got all the gear to help.
