expertise backstage. Kristina Johnson, Creative Stylist at
Tommy's who worked backstage with Esther was thrilled to meet
the musical phenomenon;
"BOND are famous worldwide for their amazing musical creativity
and also their stunning looks but they were so friendly, chatty
and fun to be around. They really liked how we styled their
hair for the balloon release and asked us if we would come
back and style their hair and make up for their big performance
for the festivals evening concert. It was a fantastic experience
working with the band made all the better by seeing how fabulous
they looked on-stage.
