Paris Wella & Lancome Trip Blog

Paris Wella
March 14, 2011

Manchester College attended Paris Wella Professional & Paris Lancome. This is their experience from student Joanne Wheater.

After days of packing for my first trip to Paris I finally had 10 perfect outfits for a 3day trip. Our coach picked us up early on Monday, March 14th and we started our journey… After a long, yet comfy 10 hour journey we arrived at our hotel.

Our group had decided to stay at the Kyriad which is just on the out-skirts of Disney Land. The hotel itself was amazing, a carousel met us in reception and the rooms were so pretty.

On our first night we headed into the Disney Village for a group meal, we ate at Annette’s Diner, an american themed restaurant. The food was great, we were all allowed free time after this so as a group we wondered through the shops, a possible warm up for the day’s head?!

Our second day, was another early start… After heading for breakfast we took our transfer into Paris for the Wella & Lancome seminars. I attended the Lancome seminar, we learned about different techniques that included traditional chinese massage aswell as more modern electric based ones. After a short break we were given make up demonstrations, this was my favourite part of the show. To be given inside tips from a professional has made me feel that I have an advantage over other girls who didn’t come.

Once the seminar had finished we had free time in Paris, after a exhausting session of window shopping we headed off to see the sights. In the time we had, we managed to see the Eiffel tower, walk up the champs de elysee which is amazing street, and we saw the Arc de triopmhe. I couldn’t believe how close we were to everything.

When we finally found our group we went back to the hotel, to get ready for our final group meal. On our journey back we decided that for tonight’s meal we should copy the techniques we were shown at the seminar. It was great showing the teachers what we’d learned. I loved this trip and so did my mates, and cant wait to go back to Paris one day!
