"Any outlet for creativity is good, and mine is not music but painting" - Guy Kremer

I’m delighted to report that my diet has been going very well and I have lost eight kilos! It’s one of the hardest things I have ever done, as anyone who knows me will know how much I love my food! It’s not pleasure, it’s like torture, but I know it’s doing me good, and I will be feeling much trimmer for Christmas, when I might allow myself a glass of Champagne!

The salon is always very busy in December, and it all looks very festive, with fabulous Christmas decorations. We will be having our usual annual drinks get together for clients and friends in the courtyard, with Christmas carols from my friend, the wonderful operatic soprano Claire Rutter.

Our staff party will be at the Harbour Hotel in Southampton. They love it there – it’s young and fun and they can really let their hair down after a year of hard work.

I went back to Dire Strait’s guitarist John Illsley’s house recently to cut his hair. I am so humbled and honoured to do the hair of this legend of the rock world. It makes me feel like I can still rock and roll with the best, even though I’ve reached 70!

Any outlet for creativity is good, and mine is not music but painting. I love playing with pigments of vibrant colour as much as I do pigments of hair, and I had the chance to share my art with others at The Big One: Hair Pieces 2022, an awards ceremony
and exhibition at Battersea Arts Centre in London.

Organised by Tribu-te Magazine, this was the final of The Big One Trophy Awards presented in a new-style show that brought together the concept of a show with the impact of an art installation.

I was invited – along with Trevor Sorbie, Jason Miller and Mark Woolley – to show my art during an evening that featured expert talks, a catwalk show, the awards presentation and a drinks and dance party.

The idea was to show that hairdressers are creative people, not just with hair. It underlines how clever hairdressing is. We have to consider the aesthetics of everything: what will work and how it will fit. We all understand that hairdressing is often underappreciated as an artform and it was fabulous to be able to show that we are not just hairdressers, we are artists.

By the time you read this, I will be on my Caribbean cruise – a trip of a lifetime, that has been rolled over twice due to Covid. I have been to the Caribbean before, but I have always been working. I am so looking forward to it, it’s something I really need at the
moment. Watch this space for updates.

In the meantime, I hope to see many of you at our salon courtyard party, and wish you all a wonderful Christmas.

Joyeux Noel everyone!
