 Shelley finally got her ink

After ten years of thinking time, Shelley finally got THAT tattoo. Her back piece is undeniably epic and took award winning tattooist Nipper from Bridgend Tattoo Studio nine sessions to complete. Nipper worked on the piece for ten months, but no pain no gain, and it was totally worth it.

Jul.   Welsh hair and beauty awards

Shelley Lane Salon became the ‘Overall winner’ of this years Welsh Hair and Beauty awards, after picking up the title of ‘Salon of the Year‘ and  ‘Women’s Stylist of the Year‘.


and the very next day….

Shelley was invited to become part of the UK Creative Art Team for Italian brand Milk_shake. That week there was a lot of exciting news to sink in. Shelley was being flown to Milan for her induction, but we had her Birthday to celebrate first, and there was a new recruit to the team, our Kim, who is now affectionately known as ‘Kimothy’.


Aug. The Mad Hatters Tea PartyFinalpost19FinalPost18

Lots of cake. Not much tea. We got dressed up and had a blast. The night culminated in a hilarious snap chat that proved Kimothy to be a bit of a wild one. I’ve asked can I include it. She said no. From here things got just a little bit crazy..


Shelley went to MilanFinalPost21

Oct. Project SteamPunk commenced

As soon as we go back it was all project SteamPunk.
