|Morning mop of hair!|
After flying via Starbucks at St Pancras and short diversion via Topshop, I headed through the Beauty department of Selfridges. Now I always get a bit anxious in Selfridges because I feel like I'm not good enough to be in there... do you know what I mean? I can't afford the gorgeous brands and I feel like a fish out of water, but I was hoping this experience would change my opinion.
I headed over the the beauty counter where I was greeted by a chirpy girl, she escorted me to where my hair was to be washed and handed me a Hershesons blow dry menu.
After washing my hair he began to style it. He used Kérastase products which he highly recommended. Make sure you look for Spray Á Porter and Forme Fatale - I can't fault them. The spray gave great beach style texture, whilst the other provided extensive volume. I had copious amounts of volume from a combination of back brushing and these key products and even though we used products it didn't look or feel awful, in fact it was the polar opposite. All this followed by side french plaits and voila, my hair was complete!
The entire way through Nicholas made the look feel effortless and extremely easy - however I don't think I could do this myself. One major plus point was the fact my hair length wasn't a problem, I was under the impression you needed long hair in order to have one of these styles done but you really don't. Nicholas adapted the style so it would work for my length and personally I was extremely impressed!
When I left the Hershesons Blow Dry Bar I felt amazing. When I was walking anywhere I could feel eyes on me wondering how I'd managed such a creation! When I finally got to the London Bloggers Party I kept getting compliments on how cute the style looked - winner!
I had non stop compliments afterwards. As corny as it sounds Nicholas made me feel fantastic about myself, he kept me at ease and we chatted away quite happily. To get your hair done at Hershesons it costs £35 and there are a number of styles to chose from:
2. The Big and Brushed
3. The B-52
5. The Wavy Gravy
6. Smooth Wavy
7. Half + Half
8. The Classic
9. The Bardot
10. The Superstraight
12. The 15 Minute Blow Dry
If I hadn't had the one I selected I would of gone for the Bardot look. This entire concept is a fab idea if you have a big event or a special occasion, plus the beauty of this Hershesons blow dry bar is its even open until 10pm.
