Rainbow Room at TRNSMT 2023

It’s been an eventful weekend for local hair stylists from Scotland’s largest hair salon group, Rainbow Room International, as they worked their magic behind the scenes at Scottish music festival, TRNSMT, to transform the stars and enhance their overall appearance before their on-stage performances.

Looks varied from men’s hair fade haircuts to smooth blow dries and curls for the ladies. Mae Stephen’s opted for a more creative look pairing space buns with electric and aqua blue extensions before her stage debut.

The team also worked alongside Guitar Guitar, Scotland’s biggest guitar store, to request artists sign one of their guitars that would later be sold for charity with this year’s proceeds going to Nordoff Robbins, the UK’s largest music therapy charity.


David Nicolson, Rainbow Room International Royal Exchange Square Salon Director, said, “The TRNSMT Music Festival is an incredible platform where artists showcase their talents, and we are thrilled to play a part in enhancing their overall look and to have done so for the past six years. At Rainbow Room International, we are delighted to work backstage at many of Scotland’s biggest events, including TRNSMT and the Scottish Bafta’s and to give our stylists these experiences, working on hair out with the salon, building their portfolio, capabilities and confidence.”
