This was us after our makeovers
I headed straight for the refreshment bar. The bar is a permanent fixture which serves a variety of drinks from coffee to wine. I have to say that having a glass of wine or champagne whilst having your hair done, really is the epitome of pampering and relaxation. On the night we were treated to two special cocktails and also some very tasty canapés made by local caterers, Spiros
First up for me was a colour consultation. I always find that I like to change my hair colour deepening on the seasons. I'm normally lighter in the summer and richer and darker in the winter. It was great to get another opinion on what would suit my skin tone.
I then sat down with a lovely hairdresser who asked me how I would like my hair after it was blow dried. I really like my hair curly but I struggle to create natural looking waves/curls. She very kindly taught me how to do them. I can honestly say this was my favourite part of the evening. She was so patient with me and really ensured that I knew what I was doing. I'm eternally grateful for her help and support as I am now actually quite good at recreating the look she did for me on the night.
Next up was 10 minutes of bliss. I had my hair shampooed (which is always soothing at a salon) whilst sitting in a massage chair. As a mum this can only be described as divine. I closed my eyes, switched off from the world and enjoyed every single minute of it. I then returned to have my hair curled. It was so full and bouncy. I loved it.
I then had my nails shaped and painted. This is always a treat for me due to the fact that I work in an operating theatre. I can never have nice nails. I chose a deep purple colour which was fab for autumn.
I desperately wanted to have a make up consultation but we simply ran out of time. I was so busy chatting away that I missed it. You could have also had a skin consultation too with Carita.
I was so impressed with the event and the salon. I think it's great that you can have a variety of things such as hair, make up, nails, facials and waxing, all in the same place. It really is the perfect place to have a pamper and to feel good about yourself. I will definitely be heading back asap for another bouncy blow dry.
