The British Academy Film Awards 2018 took place in February and with Paul Edmonds and his team of experts on hand as the official hair partners…what an absolutely amazing experience the team had! Paul Edmonds and his super salon squad prepped, styled and zhooshed an array of fabulous clients and now the team is ready to share the weekend with YOU!
Savoy Hotel Pop Up | Salon & Exhibition
Paul Edmonds London arrived at the world-famous Savoy Hotel the night of Thursday 15th February to set up a specifically designed pop up salon and film exhibition, showcasing films from across the decades that Mr. Edmonds had previously styled the hair for.
The Savoy Hotel and Paul Edmonds London are a natural partnership. With the hotel’s luxury guest rooms and suites, individually designed in either Edwardian or Art Deco style, mirrors the decor in both Paul Edmonds London salon locations. The decor is not the only element that connects both the Savoy and Paul Edmonds. The River Suite, our home for BAFTA weekend overlooked London’s most iconic landmarks, exactly how Paul Edmonds London Circus West Village, Battersea, looks directly onto the quintessentially British, Battersea Power Station.
Paul Edmonds London at the Savoy had the concept of combining both a pop-up hair salon with a luxury exhibition while acting as a space for clients to relax and prepare for various BAFTA events which were held over the weekend. Our one bedroom, one living room, two bathroom suite was decorated with such opulence, to mirror both Paul Edmonds London salons. The mirrors placed at the styling stations matched the mirrors built into the latest venture, Paul Edmonds London, Battersea Power Station, along with the styling chairs. The beautiful flowers were created from the same florist who provides arrangements for both salons, Neill Strain and Paul, with his team of experts created styles with the iconic Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, just as the team does in the salons.
Creating the style suite was a complete PE family effort, which Paul and the team are truly grateful for. A friend and client Louise Bradley very kindly supplied the beautiful styling and side tables from her impressive Design Studio and flagship showroom in Knightsbridge.
Press & Influencers | Paul Edmonds London
Another aspect of the styling suite was the Paul Edmonds London wall. Along with fellow BAFTA style partners, friends, clients, and influencers were invited to the suite to have a catch up with Paul and to check out the exhibition. Take a look at some of the team’s favorites below…
British Academy Film Awards 2018 | Hairstyling
The weekend went extremely quickly from styling press, influencers, and fellow BAFTA partners that by the time Sunday came around the team were armed with tongs, grips & hairspray ready to style the stars! Nominees, directors, actors, and actresses graced the style suite. Paul and his super salon squad were based at the Savoy but the day saw quick dashes to hotels such as The Dorchester and The Rosewood to prep, style and zhoosh stars in time for the red carpet.
As you know, Joanna Lumley was the new BAFTA host of 2018. Catherine from Paul Edmonds London was behind the stage at the Royal Albert Hall supporting Joanna throughout the evening. Joanna Lumley popped into Paul Edmonds London earlier on in the week to see Steven to ensure her colour was award ready. On the big night, Joanna opted for volume volume volume!

We may be biased but everyone looked fabulous…don’t you agree? Alongside the BAFTA red carpet strutters, Paul Edmonds took to the steps of the Royal Albert Hall to make his entrance.
