I was relieved when Katy, my appointed hairdresser sat down and discussed with me what it was I wanted; I have been places where I’m whisked off for a shampoo before even seeing the hairdresser.
She listened to what I wanted, looked at my hair and consulted me with her recommendations both in regard to the cut and colour. I wanted to keep the length but look less witchy and more groomed. I also wanted to draw out the red and blond colours that are naturally there in my hair without the stripy badger look – fine for many people but that just isn’t me.
Whilst my colours were being mixed I was well looked after, I was brought a pot of herbal tea on a delightful little tray complete with biscuits, I was offered magazines several times and robed and wrapped in a warmed towel – a lovely touch.
All in all the staff were very attentive, my only complaint would be being called love a couple of times by the guy that saw me at reception; it didn’t help my complex about feeling too old and frumpy for this salon.
Katy was both professional and friendly with an easy going personality, she has a good handle on her team and I’ve no doubt that whichever member of the team you go to you will come out feeling very pleased. I certainly was. My new colour brought out the natural tones of my hair in an elegant subtle way and the cut and blow dry looked amazingly sophisticated.
I’ve really put it to the test this weekend, my hair has survived my regular kick boxing class, a wedding reception and a day out with the kids, not to mention being slept on for a couple of nights and I’m pleased to say it looked as sleek and bouncy Sunday night as it did when I walked out the salon Friday evening.
To sum it all up, was I happy with the result? It looked amazing. Would I go back? Well I’ve already booked my next appointment, and would I recommend Rush? Absolutely!
I think we call all agree that a) Amanda doesn't look anywhere approaching 40 and b) her hair looks great! Thanks so much for the review. If you would like to follow Amanda's new blog her link is allaboutyoukent
