A few weeks back I was asked by Regis Hair Salons to help them launch the new face of Regis. They gave me a hair cut as a thank you. Given my hair is wild at the best of times, and I haven’t had the time to get it cut for AGES, I leapt at the chance.
I had an appointment on Saturday at 1pm. Brilliant.
Until I got off the train and remembered it was a Saturday. In town. Four weeks before Christmas.
There is a reason I do internet shopping.
Anyhoo, seeing as you can’t get your hair cut online I fought my way through the crowd to the salon. It is tucked away in the corner of Debenhams in the Bullring, and I honestly didn’t know it was there. I arrived fifteen minutes early as I couldn’t face the crowds any more.
I was given a coffee while I waited for Bev, the salon manager to come and get me. When it was time for my appointment she asked me what I wanted to do with my hair, and what sort of colour I fancied.
I very helpfully said that I would like to have a hair style rather than hair that is just there. And when it came to colour, I quite liked the idea of going reddish. From that helpful explanation, Bev managed somehow to come up with a couple of options for me.
Once we had agreed on a plan, I sat back and let Bev work her magic.
When I had told Big M I was going to have my hair done, and I was going to have some colours put in it she asked me if it would be pink. When I said no, she asked if I would have rainbow hair instead? Umm, no.
Instead I have red with coppery highlights and I LOVE it. Big M seems happy with it too, so that’s a relief.
And the good news? I was able to recreate my new haircut the next day with minimum stress. This is always a good thing.
I had a lovely couple of hours at Regis in the Bullring, Birmingham. I felt thoroughly relaxed thanks to the friendly staff and the scalp massage (mmmmmmmm). I will definitely be heading (badumtish) back when my roots start to show. I would like to thank Bev for giving me hair that looks like it is meant to be big and messy, rather than just being big and messy. There’s a subtle difference.
