This was Glamhive’s eighth summit and featured six diverse panels and a number of dynamic speakers. What started out in 2020 as a way for the style community to come together during the pandemic has grown into one of the largest gatherings of influencers, beauty experts, and fashion icons worldwide. The star-studded event was co-hosted by Glamhive’s charismatic CEO and Founder Stephanie Sprangers and celebrity stylist Nicole Chavez (Stylist to Kristen Bell and Jessica Simpson). A variety of trending topics were covered by the all-star speaker line-up which included rising stylists in the industry, fashion futurists, beauty and fashion entrepreneurs, and world-known TikTok influencers. Some notable British speakers and moderators at the event were Christian Wood (Makeup Artist to Sophie Turner, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Eiza Gonzalez), Holly White (Stylist to Vanessa Kirby, Charithra Chandran, Tom Hiddleston, Tuppence Middleton), Ruby Hammer (Makeup Artist, Brand Creator), Colette Laxton (Co-founder, The Inkey List), Maninder Sachdeva (TikTok Influencer), Ambika Dhir (Tik Tok Influencer), and Benji Park (Tik Tok Influencer), to name a few.

Behind The Seams—The People Behind Your Favorite Red Carpet Looks
The Future of Fashion
Attendees of the physical event were treated to a selection of skincare and color products from the presenting sponsor, iconic women’s entrepreneurship building and empowerment company Mary Kay Inc.
During this one-day summit, many of the pertinent challenges surrounding budding entrepreneurs were discussed. Speakers shared their failures, the sacrifices they had to make to keep their businesses alive, the heartbreak over businesses lost, and the ultimate revival and success. The underlying theme was one’s passion and grit, not giving up on dreams, and turning the setbacks into learning and growing opportunities instead of taking the easy road out.
“Mary Kay’s mission of empowering women to economic freedom and teaching them entrepreneurship skills works in perfect harmony with Glamhive’s work of teaching budding entrepreneurs and motivating them to set their businesses up for success,” said Carolyn Passey, General Manager of Mary Kay United Kingdom and Ireland. “We are excited to welcome Glamhive LIVE Spring Style & Beauty Summit to our beautiful city with its outstanding panel of speakers and thought leaders in fashion, beauty, and entrepreneurship. The topics were timely, informative, and future-oriented. I do hope Glamhive LIVE will consider hosting another event in London in the near future again.”
“London is one of the most important and iconic fashion capitals in the world. It is famous for setting fashion trends, showcasing the latest couture, and serving as a center for style and design inspiration. There is something for every fashion lover to be found in the UK capital,” said Stephanie Sprangers, Founder and CEO of Glamhive. “We accelerated our work as the COVID-19 pandemic was sweeping the world. We never gave up on our vision of collaborating with talented stylists, makeup artists, hairstylists, and business leaders to bring knowledge about fashion and beauty and entrepreneurship to people everywhere. I’m already looking forward to coming back to London – there is so much we want to achieve in sustainable fashion, beauty, and entrepreneurship.”
