We Are Pop Up has teamed up with our friends at Yelp and Not Another Salon as part of Yelp’s events series for its super-users, the Yelp Elite, held at some of the hottest spots in London. Not Another Hair Event on Thursday 18th February is the ultimate creative salon evening featuring food, drink, personalised hair colour, nail design and arts and crafts in a secret psychedelic 70s-style room. Featured brands will include Pirate’s Grog Rum, Bubbleology and Chipotle and although the event is full, we’ve got tickets for two lucky winners – all you have to do is retweet us here by 5pm Wednesday 17th and we’ll announce the results. Alternatively you can still put your name down on the waitlist in case a space opens up.
We Are Pop Up spoke to Community Director of Yelp in London Alex Shebar before the event to get the lowdown on what’s in store for lucky Yelp users.
Hi Alex, tell us about Yelp and why you’re doing Not Another Hair Event.
Yelp is a city guide that helps you live like a local, no matter if you’re new to the area or if you’ve been in your city your entire life. You can find amazing restaurants, bars, stores, even things like cinemas, theatre, sports, doctors, parks and more. It’s unlike any other site out there because it’s focused on the people who live, work and play in the city they live in. We’re running the Not Another Hair Event to show all these things off. It’s at Not Another Salon, which this amazing, bright, colourful salon in Brick Lane that’s worth checking out, and then filling the party with great local businesses like espresso martinis and bubble tea and burritos and wine and so much more. If you’ve never been to a Yelp event before, come! And if you don’t have the app yet, download it here now. It will make your day-to-day life so much more fun.
Why did you choose to work with Not Another Salon and We Are Pop Up for this event?
Not Another Salon is this amazing salon that really, truly, isn’t like any other salon, from both the decor to the staff. It’s one of these spots you really have to see to feel how cool and different they are, and we wanted to promote that. And then working with We Are Pop Up was a no-brainer. They have some of the best pop-ups happening in London and some really amazing local businesses. We wanted to show them off too, and absolutely have them at our party!
What are you most looking forward to about the evening? What can we expect?
The whole event is going to be a good time, from the food, to the drinks, to the salon activities to just the people. If you’ve never been to a Yelp event before, you’ve never met a friendlier bunch of local Londoners. You’ll come, try new things, see a fantastic space, learn about local spots and meet new people.
