I'M LOVING... MY NEW HAIR

Full length picture here!
So today i was invited to go along to the Russell Eaton salon in Leeds for a cut and colour. I'm really bad when it comes to my hair, i never get it cut and i certainly don't put colour on it (apart from last year when i used a semi permanent one!) so actually going to a propa salon to get something done was a big thing for me. I thought i should bite the bullet and finally jazz my hair up, i decided to go for ombre. I know I'm late to the party on that one but and i'm so glad i got in to the action because 3 hours later i left the salon feeling amazing and so in love with my hair.

The first thing i noticed was how large the place was, I've walked past it a thousand times but i just never thought anything of it. Being a Saturday it was really busy and people were coming and going all the time but not once were you left waiting. I was offered a drink on my arrival with magazines and offered again a few times through my hours there which was nice.  I also had a head, shoulder and had massage which was really lovely. Everyone was really friendly and so helpful. They also have spa rooms downstairs for massages, waxing and spray tans as well as manicures upstairs.

I had my hair done by Rob the creative Director and it's actually his family who owns the business. I only realised this when i asked ''So how long have you worked here?'' fail. When we were talking about what i wanted to have done i showed him a couple of pictures, i don't even think i knew exactly what i wanted but he did and it turned out just perfect. I don't think the top picture really does it justice because i think it looks a lot more lighter in person, it's very honey/light brown coloured which blends beautifully with my natural colour.

I'm so impressed with my time at the salon today, i really was treated so well and the friendly atmosphere made it a really enjoyable visit. I totally recommend Russell Eaton salsons, I honestly couldn't ask for a better stylist and I'll certainly go back next time i get the courage to get it chopped!

  30. It's lovely!! I DIY'ed my own hair but it could really do with a professional touch up but never that impressed when I see it done at the hair dressers. Really loving your colours though! :)
