INAA Scottish Hair & Beauty Awards - blogger event

Last Monday night Bex and I went along to a "Bloggers do it best" event organised by INAA (I Need An Appointment) in advance of their Scottish Hair & Beauty Awards which takes place on 26th May.  The bloggers event was held in 29 Private Members Club, a venue that we both love.

Source, is the UK's 1st online Hair & Beauty booking portal and was launched in Jan 2010.   I have to be honest and say I had never heard of INAA before I was invited to this event, but I have since had a good look at their website and think it's a great idea.  You can type in your postcode and view time slots for all kinds of beauty treatments and I liked the way you could easily compare prices for similar treatments at different salons and if you were looking for a last minute appointment could potentially find some great deals.

The bloggers event itself was quite informal, with a brief introduction from the ladies at INAA, explaining why they set up the business and the role they believe bloggers play in today's beauty market, and a hello from Lauren Goodger (of TOWIE fame) who was there to promote her new fake tan products and Glasgow tanning salon.  We were provided with some yummy canapes and as Belvedere Vodka are one of the event sponsors, some long vodkas.  I think the last time I had a long vodka I was teenager! 

After taking some obligatory outfit shots in the big room, we moved on the The Apartment section of 29 for the remainder of the evening and it was a great opportunity to speak to both the lovely ladies who set up INAA and the brand representatives, whilst mingling and chatting to fellow bloggers :)

The following brands had stands at the event and we could chat to the girls and try out the products / receive little makeovers: Lauren's Way, GHD (they had an awesome new styler which has extra sensors keeping the temperature more even for better, faster results!), Bare Minerals, and last, but most certainly not least, Bumble & Bumble.  The very talented Bee (not to be confused with my B, that would be weird but awesome!!) was creating amazing hair-dos for those that wanted one.  After seeing some of her fabulous creations, including on WestEndGirl who requested a retro pin up style that looked amazing, I decided to ask for a beehive!  It was quite funny not being able to see what Bee was doing whilst she was styling my hair, but Bex took lots of photos!

I was so impressed with my hair that I honestly didn't want the night to end, well my hair was too fabulous to just go home!  So Lauren and I headed round to Corinthian for another drink and took some rather hilarious photos on the way there before Bex headed home.

We also received a goodie bag at the end of the evening which contained some of Lauren's fake tan products and sleep in hair rollers, a bare minerals eye shadow (I got a fab deep blue one and Bex got pink) and some bright orange OPI varnish called A Roll in the Hague.

It really was a fun night and it was great to meet so many Scottish bloggers, I hope the actual awards night goes well for the girls at INAA.
