Four years ago at a London hair and beauty event, Kala, founder of National Blow-dry Day met Frances, a wonderful woman who’s hair and confidence had been severely affected after undergoing treatment for cancer. Frances bravely removed the hat she was wearing, and Kala set about transforming her look with some simple styling techniques and tools. Frances gratefully left, without wearing her hat. The next day a gentleman (her son) drove a very long way to meet Kala personally to say, ‘Thank You’. Little did Kala know the difference she had made by this simple gesture, By empowering his mother with the right knowledge and tools to style her hair, Frances had become a different woman, full of confidence in herself and her appearance which led to Frances’ husband and son had seeing her without her hat inside the house for the first time in over a year so this was a huge step for the whole family.
Kala was moved to tears in the realisation that something as simple as a cut and blow-dry had made such a difference to someone’s life; that even through the hardest of times, something as ordinary as changing the hair could have such a big impact. The idea of this was the driving force behind National Blow Dry Day. Kala says: ‘‘The National Blow Dry Day’ campaign, now an annual event was created firstly to recognise that great hair is a massive morale and confidence booster. Secondly to remind stylists that their skills leave women feeling beautiful - hairdressers touch hearts as well as hair. Lastly, as a woman designing hair appliances I really feel that it is important to teach women to style with confidence and without compromise. It’s about the outer and inner beauty that every woman is entitled to feel.
The Katie Piper Foundation provides support to people who go through incredibly tough times and helps them to overcome their confidence issues. This is why we felt The Katie Piper Foundation is the perfect charity to work with on National Blow-Dry Day. We feel this represents our message of ‘create the me that you want to be’ each and every day.
"For my clients, a visit to the salon is much more than just a cut, colour and styling. It’s about friendship, loyalty, trust and confidence building. I truly believe it brings meaning and magic to their lives and leaves them feeling beautiful and able to be who they want to be. This year’s chosen charity is one I believe supports the same empowering messages as we do” - Kala Kilshaw ego PROFESSIONAL
