I bought two vouchers here. A wash, cut and blow dry for myself and a half head highlights and cut or blow dry for my sister.
The salon itself is very nice. It was very queit on a Monday evening and the ambience was calming.
I'll try to review both treatments separately.
Wash, cut and blow dry - the wash was OK. I wouldn't say it was great. The sink is so much higher than the chair that you sit on that it really hurts your neck. I wasn't even resting my neck - more like the bottom half of my skull! It was so painful and the lady washing my hair didn't really attend to the underside. The wash itself - the products smelt like kitchen cleaner and the water was slightly on the cold side. When I made a comment that it was a bit cold, she turned it up ever so slightly but not that it made much difference.
The cut itself was very good - credit where credit is due. I asked for a deep side fringe and a few layers around my face. My hair was in quite an unhealthy state but she managed to get rid of the worst of it without taking too much off. In fact, I'm quite pleased with my cut.
The blow dry - I have never experienced such a painful blow dry in mylife. They say that the sign of a good blow dry is your head isn't tugged all over the place btu my head was pulled in all directions. The finshing result of the blow dry was good however.
The highlights and cut - What they don't tell you in advance that the only colour available for highlighting is blonde. My sister is Asian with dark black hair. The hairdresser assured her that it will come out a warm honey like colour. I think the actual process of putting in the highlighted sections was easy. However, she was todl to leave them in for half an hour. But during this period the haridresser started on me so they were left in for a lot longer than half an hour! When they foils were removed - she had bright yellow streaks running through her. Because they only offered a cut or a blow dry - she went for the cut. She asked for a few layers at the front to frame her face and about 2 inches off at the back. Whilst the bach was adequate, the ahridresser took off so much at the front. Much shorter than she had anticipated. The highlights are far too light and I will be going back to address this.
Definitely call them and ask about highlights if you decide to buy this treatment.
