Hand Painted Beauties


Last Saturday the Portsmouth Guildhall hosted the annual industry event 'The News Hair & Beauty' awards.
This is most definitely the biggest date in the salon calendar and each year the biggest and brightest names and talents from the local area join forces to celebrate the high standard of work produced in their craft. 

Every year this event has grown in popularity and success and has certainly become more and more glamorous each time around. For the 2nd year running Manic Stage Productions had been invited and asked to provide the nights entertainment to wow the audience throughout the evening.

We provided our eye catching stilt walker at the main entrance to the Guildhall to welcome the guests for their exciting evening. As always she went down a treat. Our red showgirl costume was shining away and with our feathers out in force everyone was impressed with the sky high entertainment that added that little extra touch to the beginning of the event.  Along side was our topless waiter catching the ladies eye!  Both created the perfect photo opportunities and a bit of a cue began to form once they had caught the guests attention. 

The theme of the evening was 'Cirque Du Soleil' and with such an exciting and outrageous request we decided our costumes needed to be just as creative. Our dancers had skin tight full body silver catsuits to show off their amazing skills, which were beautifully painted and decorated by our body paint artist. With white, blue and silver paint our uniquely painted costumes complimented the night brilliantly and looked super stunning.
Being the hair and beauty awards we needed hair and make up that would stand out and impress, so we did just that. Our face painter continued her work from body painting up to our performers faces to add the finishing touches and with big outrageous hair our look was complete and we were ready to perform.

Next up our team of professionals took to the stage to showcase our brand new 'Cirque Du Soleil' performance. 
We tailored our routines to fit in with the evening and had lots to offer. With stunning choreography, creative dance routines and endless energy our team certainly impressed the crowds. Not only did we have dance, the team showed off their superb acrobatics and circus skills and flexibility followed by 2 pole performance spectacles featuring within the medley. 

The decision to add a little something different was a great one and the elegant and dramatic art of pole dance was a creative addition and something that a lot of people had not seen done in such a way before! It was a big hit and was performed beautifully and showcased strength, sophistication and beauty. 
The medley certainly showed off the amazing talents of our team and the audience loved it. 

As you can see we really can tailor to any sort of theme you may have and will create bespoke entertainment for your event no matter how big or small.
