Learn to please with plaits, ponies and braids

Anyone with a child in their life knows that getting a little one to sit still long enough to tame their locks requires the patience of a saint. But what the hell do you do once your cherub's in the chair?

Calling all Dads, Aunties, Mums, Uncles, godparents - step into Antidote's parlour, hosted by Surry Hill's favourite hairdressing salon. In a hands on environment, the fabulous Leonard Newton from Desmond and Molly Hairdressers will be teaching guardians essential skills for decorating hair. Bring your bambinos, try out the basics, and take home hair kits and goody bags that will bring out your inner Vidal Sassoon each morning.
