For those of us on a hair growth mission, going to get your hair cut can be a daunting prospect. But it has been over 4 months since my last trim, my hair was looking a little worse for wear and I needed to bite the bullet and go for a chop. I have been to many hair salons and find it difficult to stay loyal to any, I’ve been to Toni&guy, Barrie Stephen, Jo&Cass, even Supercuts (God forgive me), amoungst many others, but although I’ve had a fairly good experience I’ve never been wowed and wanted to book another appointment, and the search went on!
On a reccommendation from my work collegues at Topshop I decided to book an appointment at the new ‘Kyle Beasley’ salon located in chic St.Martins area of Leicester. On first impression the salon looked gorgeous, with a lot of personal touches you only get from an independant business. The lady at the reception was very welcoming, and had great hair. There is nothing more off putting than a stylist with bad hair! Later I learnt her name was Shelly and she is the salon manager.
At my appointment I explained to Shelly that I was trying to grow my hair and only want a tiny bit off. Normally a hairderesser will ignore me and hack at least a couple of inches off and I’ll have to say it looks great whilst calculating the amount of money I can spend on extensions for the next couple of months. I also vaugley told her the kind of fringe I’d like and she seemed to know exactly what I wanted even if I didnt! Lastly I decided to get a l’oreal treatment done which was an extra £10 on top. This should last in my hair for roughly six weeks, and beacuse of the keratin, will strengthen my hair and help prevent split ends, so a really great option if your trying to grow your hair too. My hair felt amazing after this treatment, and even when I rinsed my hair out this morning it still felt like silk, will defintuiley be getting this done each time I go from now on.
In terms of my hair cut I really didnt get anything drastic, and I’m normally a bit underwhelmed, but this time I genuinely felt like a different person with my new fringe and really blunt, one length ends. I would highly reccommend my stylist Shelly, from the cut to the way she styled my hair I was 100% happy and even though I want to avoid cutting my hair, I actually can’t wait to go back! She waved my hair with a cloud 9 waving wand and I have already started saving up for one I loved the effect that much! So here is the finished result…
Like the product Junkie I am, I also picked up some ‘L’oreal Professional Tecni Art Volume Riche Strong Hold Mousse’, bit of a mouthful that. This was about £10, and is completley different from any other mousse I’ve tried, you can’t even tell its in your hair yet it kept the wave in my hair all day, and on my night out, very impressed and I’ll be doing a full review on it once I have used it a little more.
So if your looking for a great new salon in Leicester I would highly reccommend Kyle Beasley. Here is their website which you can check out for more details http://www.kylebeasley.co.uk/page2.htm .
