Yesterday I’ve been to a blogger event at Sassoon Salon. I had no intention to write about it because I have an appointment and I wanted to blog about it after I had the haircut and my hair colour changed. But I got up too early, my husband and the dog are sleeping and I’m down in the living room with a cup of coffee, snacks and a lot of excitement regarding the changes. So this it how I ended up writing this post. I’ll blog, obviously, about my experience at the Salon in a couple of weeks or so.
I arrived a little after 6 at Sassoon because I was having a browse at the ground floor at Metquarter. There are lots of wonderful shops there, so I’ve spent a little more time than I intended. I had a glass of Prosecco, a short chat and soon the presentation started.
It was very interesting to learn about Vidal Sassoon and his amazing contribution to the industry. After talking about cuts and styles, the next topic was colour and it was just as fascinating. The presentation ended with a talk about the new Wella professional products called System Professional. The products are available only after a consultation, where the hair, scalp and hair care regime is taken into consideration. I think having a personalized product combination is great, especially as it takes into consideration so many different aspects. For me it was surprising to see what I should use and the products are different from what I use at the moment.
There were nibbles and chats and I had complimentary consultations for cut, colour and hair care. Nathan and I talked about my hair and what changes I should make. I was delighted to hear his thoughts as he suggested something I was considering, but I was too scared to try before. Also he didn’t say I should cut off half of my hair and that was a relief. I have long hair since I was 2, so I’m not eager to make drastic changes. He said my hair looks healthy and we had a little chat about hair dryers. I usually air-dry my hair because I don’t want to do anything too harsh to it, but the 5-10 minutes blow dry that I sometimes have to do is fine too.
Next it was the colour consultation and the colour that was suggested wasn’t the one I was thinking of. Anyway, I will try it and see how it goes. I tend to think I would like it.
The last was the hair care consultation. It was lovely to learn that my hair regime is fine and the products I use at the moment are ok too, as they are salon-quality (I talked about them here). After the chat I was recommended 3 products to try, a shampoo, a mask and another product specific for split ends.
This is one of the best things when you are talking with a professional, the advice given can be so different than what your are thinking. Also, the products recommended in the end aren’t the type of products I would normally think to try. Now I can’t wait to try them.
By the end of the month I will have a new cut and colour and a post about them. It’s so exciting.
