The Queen comes to McCarthy's Ebbw Vale

The Queen comes to McCarthy's Ebbw Vale

As everyone enjoyed the festivities for Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee, McCarthy's Ebbw Vale held some celbrations of their own for the 'Best of British'.

Throughout the Jubilee weekend our Ebbw Vale salon celebrated 60 years of her majesty's reign in true McCarthy's style by holding a red white and blue day on Saturday 2nd June.

All members of the team were dressed in patriotic Union Jack red, white and blue, wearing masks of various members of the royal family. Clients enjoyed having their hair cut, coloured and styled by Kate Middleton, Prince Harry, Prince Phillip and even Prince William made an appearance!

The salon was decorated for the Jubilee with bunting and a regal themed window display. Queen Elizabeth II herself also made an appearance on the day in a cardboard cut-out form to meet and greet the people of Ebbw Vale and have their photograph taken with. The team handed out red, white and blue balloons outside the salon to children to create a buzz and excitement for the days to come.

Michelle England, salon manager of our Ebbw Vale salon really enjoyed the weekend:

"There's such a buzz for the Jubilee," she said. "We really wanted to get them into the spirit of things and bring a bit of fun to the community! The team were really excited, clients had their photo taken with the Queen and just celebrated being British. It's a really exciting time for Great Britain and we are so proud to be a part of it!"
