Yesterday I finally got around to having my hair done, I went to my nearest Regis store which is in Derby. I was a little confused as this store is called Hair Express; if it hadn’t been for the Regis posters inside the window I would not have had a clue that it was a Regis Salon. After talking to Chris the manager it turns out the Hair Express was a Regis company; they are phasing them out and they will all become Regis Salons.
The above photo is me yesterday morning before I stepped into Regis. I’ve had my hair in a Bob for a good few years now, I like it, it’s easy to manage and I think probably the best style for my hair! I have lots of hair but it’s very very fine; I can’t do a great deal with it so in a Bob with a bit of added volume I’m happy! The last time I had it done (back in September I think) I had really blonde highlights in it and I really loved the front but at the back where it was cut into my neck it was really dark and well as James put it ” you look like a chav from the back” James is always brutally honest! (Honesty is not always a good thing – I can assure you) Anyway enough of the old cut… I’m here to tell you about Regis and my new cut 😉
So I went along to Regis yesterday and was instantly met by Chris the Salon Manager who was to be my Stylist. Chris talked me through what he thought would work best for my hair and how to avoid looking like a chav from the back 😉 It was decided that I would keep in the same style and I would have some highlights and low lights to work with my natural colour. Chris made me a coffee and went to mix up the colours. I have to say I get incredibly bored when I’m at the hairdressers and I feel really bad for just sitting around doing nothing but I have to say I really quite enjoyed it yesterday. Chris is an absolute credit to the Salon and he is really lovely to talk & listen too! Chris set to work putting my foils in and then left me for a while looking like this…
After having my foils out I had some wonderful head massage and a treatment on my hair and was left with a hot towel on my head to relax for a while. Chris then set to work on cutting my hair after he had checked to see if we were still in agreement on the cut. Chris clearly knows his stuff and gave me lots of tips along the way about looking after my hair and which products would work for me. He then went on to blow dry my hair, check for stray hairs and feather it up some more. Before introducing me to a fantastic product which I am going to tell you about in a completely different post ;O)
I’m really pleased with my new hair do, I love the colours and am very happy to not look like a chav from the back 😉 A big thank you to Regis Salons and especially to Chris who probably needs a pay rise ;o)
* I received my haircut and colour free of charge, in exchange for this review! The review is in my own words and is completely honest!
