It’s official: today has been one of the ‘best hair days’ of my life! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram you may have seen my post earlier this evening claiming my hair had never looked so good, and I wasn’t exaggerating – this all follows a fantastic trip to the Regis Salon in Wilmslow, Cheshire!
When I was invited along to have my hair done, there was no way I was turning down the opportunity – I adore Regis in many ways (their wonderfully creative team and products are brilliant) but had never actually been to one of their salons before. After popping in for a patch test (to make sure I wasn’t allergic to the colour they’d use) I was all set for my appointment with the amazing Josh.
How much do I look like a Georgian duchess (minus a fancy dress) in the photo above?!
From the minute I arrived at the salon, the experience was outstanding. Despite being 10 minutes early, I was immediately shown to my seat and offered a drink before Josh joined me for a pre-hair ‘do chat. We discussed the details of what I was going to have done, and I felt instantly relaxed about the entire process. I can get a bit nervous about having my hair done, but Josh was so good at explaining each step that I knew I was in the hands of a total pro.
Forgive me if I get a couple of details wrong, but the gist of what I had done was this: my roots were lightened up first of all, then after around 20 minutes the solution was washed off and a toner massaged into my hair. This was to make sure that I had no brassy tones (not a good look!) and that the colour was gorgeously soft. I also had a Fusio-Dose Radiance treatment to make sure my hair was silky and smooth, and it definitely worked!
Afterwards, Josh blow dried my hair and used rollers to give it amazing volume. I cannot speak highly enough of him – he took such care with every tiny section of my hair and his perfectionism paid off. Once the rollers had cooled and were taken out, my hair looked simple stunning!
What do you think guys? I couldn’t stop looking in the mirror! I’m so thrilled that my hair is looking so brilliant right before the Cosmo Blog Awards tomorrow – what a perfect chance to show it off!
The entire experience was fantastic from beginning to end, and if you live in Cheshire (or anywhere nearby!) I would 100% recommend making an appointment at the salon. Josh is a truly talented stylist, colourist and general hair expert, as well as being brilliant to chat to! We must have covered a hundred topics, and he made the experience of going to Regis one to remember.
A HUGE thank you to Josh and the team at Regis Wilmslow – you’re a credit to the company and I hope to see you all again soon!
