Dad's and daughters night out

‘Blokes & Braids’ Event a Success Triple M's Lee Faulkner and daughter Emma attended the 'Blokes & Braids' event

This week Oscar Oscar and METRO Care partnered to host a dads & daughters hair-styling workshop , ‘Blokes & Braids’. 

Twenty-two dad & daughter pairs attended the evening, enjoying food, drinks and games in Grand Central’s ‘Dad Cave’, before moving to Oscar Oscar for styling lessons.

Oscar Oscar Salon Partner Hollie-Jay Taylor and METRO Care’s Matt Gregg said they were excited to provide a night for dads & daughters to bond, but also gave back to the community.

“This was a perfect opportunity for fathers to bond with their kids whilst making a difference by helping those in need,“ Hollie-Jay said. 

“Proceeds from the night are going to support METRO Care and the new Fresh Cuts program, providing free haircuts to people doing it tough.”

Ian and Ellie Bielby enjoyed some dad & daughter time at the ‘Blokes & Braids’ event at Oscar Oscar

The event included an evening of interactive workshops where dads had the opportunity to learn professional hair tips and kids learned how to ‘brush like a boss’.  And it would appear that no one knows how to 'brush like a boss' better than our hairstyle guru, Lee Faulkner.  He and Emma walked away winners on the night after Lee styled his way to the top of the class with Emma's perfectly braided hair.

Not only can he cook but it looks like Lee knows a thing or two about hair styling also, braiding his way to success.

For his efforts Lee and Emma picked up a beautiful gift basket full of goodies.

Congratulations Lee and Emma!
