The Westrow artistic team styles the hair at the Haven Breast Cancer Charity Event in Yorkshire

 3A3EAF0F-EC11-446B-8CC2-395A31E2693AThe Westrow Artistic Team offered its styling services to models at this year’s Haven fashion event held in association with First Direct.


Held at the 18th Century Oulton Hall in Leeds, the fashion show saw employees from First Direct strut their stuff on the catwalk to help raise money for the Haven charity in Leeds, of which Prince Charles has been a patron since 2000. The charity offers support and help to those whose lives have been touched by breast cancer, and promotes integrated healthcare specifically designed to support people through their breast cancer treatment. On the night Westrow got busy backstage styling the hair of 15 models, who collectively rocked the runway in front of more than 250 guests all in the name of charity. A raffle on the night along with donations at the event and online raised a grand total of £5,000 for the worthy cause.


Creative Director of the Westrow Artistic Team, Steve Rowbottom, said: “Styling at the First Direct fashion show to help raise funds for The Haven was a wonderful opportunity for the Westrow Artistic Team to give something back. The Haven is an incredible initiative and we look forward to continuing our work with our chosen charity in the future.”
