Since I am in an area I have never been to before, the first port of call is google.
As expected there are a lot to choose from! So.......
I plumped for the one that gave a great deal to new customers.....it was £30 for a cut and finish with ANY level of stylist, now that was a good deal. The normal prices ranged from £38 to £69 depending on the level of stylist. Yes of course I asked for a top one!! who wouldn't?
The day of the appointment came yesterday, 10.30am ......I had to leave the house at 10am to get parked and be there on time.
5 minutes early ... that's good.
"welcome" as we are walking towards the workstations...."would you like a coffee?" "oh, yes please, a latte"
2 magazines placed in front of me...wow they are actually August issues for this year!! Normally the magazines are months old......
Coffee arrived, on a tray, with milk, sugar and 3 biscuits.... ok I ate one of them!!! mmmm rather good coffee, they obviously have a good machine!
As I was sitting sipping my coffee I looked in the mirror and the mirrors in the mirror and running through my head was....
Slim, mainly elegant girls
The humm of chatter
Lots of heads getting colours on
Thoughts were interrupted by Hannah, the stylist, "Hi, what would you like today?"
Ok, what do I want? ..... a style!!!.......my daughter says I don't have a 'style'!
5 minutes later, Hannah knows what she is going to do and the girl comes to take me to wash my hair.
3 sinks, 3 chairs, 3 TV screens, get the picture? ......
I was seated in the middle chair...."would you like your feet up?" .... "yes please"
1st shampoo, 2nd shampoo, towel dried, conditioner on......"would you like a head massage?"
eerrr me? silly question!!! any massage and the answer is a big fat "YES PLEASE"
Time to move again, back to the workstation, finish my coffee and here comes Hannah, scissors in hand.......
snip, snip, snip, ............. on with the hairdryer ....... next the thinning scissors...... I have very thick hair and it had got quite long for me (a side effect of skinny fiber is that it seems to make your hair and your nails grow faster and stronger) and she relieved me of a lot of weight from my head! Looking down I saw an absolute mass of hair!
I found out why the salon was so busy with women having colours....wednesday is 30%off for colours!!
Must remember when I want to get rid of those grey bits at the side..... you know, the distinguished bits!!!
and the pic ....
I took it this morning, you all know your hair is never right till you get home and wash it and dry it yourself.
It might take me a couple of days to work out how to get it right lol...
Are you a frequenter of hair salons? Or are you like me and don't go very often at all?
