Premier is the Plaice to be at Professional Beauty 2013

Posted by Ian Mellett on Thursday February 14th, 2013

This Valentines day, it seems fairly apt to mention how much we love innovation.  This year, at Professional Beauty 2013, we wanted to run a competition to give people another reason to check out our stand (bar the great software, obviously).  We could’ve done a tombola, or a form-filled draw.. but no.  Where’s the fun in that?  Instead, we decided on doing something different.


This year, after launching our advertising campaign, we want to see your best fish faces when you visit our stand (W40).  Simply take a snapshot on your mobile phone from our stand, upload it to Facebook and tag us to be in with a chance of winning!


Want to know how to take part? It’s easy.


Head to our stand (W40) at Professional Beauty

Come check out our stand, take a look around, talk to some of our staff.  They’re all very friendly!

Recreate our now infamous ‘Fish Face’ advert

Our advert has proven controversial, even in the office – so we like to have a little fun with it.  See some of our staff practising their best ‘fish face’ at Premier Towers over on Facebook to get an idea.



Feel free to be inventive!


Tag Us!

Make sure you tag us in your photo, otherwise we won’t know about it.  To make sure, ‘like’ our page in advance by clicking here.

If you’re using Instagram or want to post your pic on twitter, why not use our #pollocks tag (but bear in mind, you won’t be entered in the draw from your Instagram / Twitter post – it’s just for fun).

Please note that by taking part, we may wish to use your image for further promotional advertising – but if we do, we’ll ask for your permission first.
