For those of you that know me, will know my hair has a life of its own and washing and straightening it is always like a bloody military operation! I’ve got to literally dedicate half a day to it and I honestly swear I’m exhausted after dealing with it!
I was lucky enough to be invited by the lovely Priyanca of Pink and Rose Salon in Pinner for a wash and blow dry. An offer that I was obviously not going to refuse given the above! Not only did I have the pleasure of visiting the salon and being pampered, but they have also kindly offered to giveaway a free wash and blow dry to one of our lucky readers! You can find details of how to enter the giveaway over on Instagram.
Here’s my review of my experience at the salon:
Parking: the salon is located in Pinner High Street. I was a little apprehensive with the salon being located on a high street however there is plenty of street parking with a 30p per 20 minutes pay and display meter. I was fortunate to find parking right outside as soon as I got there and there were a few other free spaces. I visited at 10am on a Thursday morning.
Facilities: There are three floors in total – the ground floor is for wash, cuts and blow dries. The first floor is for hair colouring and the second floor has two treatment rooms for manicures, pedicures, massages and the “pink room” for eyebrow threading.
Although there aren’t specific children’s facilities, the salon welcomes kids and there’s plenty of space for a toddler to potter around while mummy gets pampered!
The salon is also doggy friendly!
The wash: My hair was washed and massaged by Anita using L’Oréal products. The massage was amazing – I’d never have guessed she’d have such strong hands for such a tiny person! It was really relaxing and exactly what I needed. Anita was friendly and constantly asked if I was comfortable and checked if the temperature of the water was ok for me several times.
The blow dry: my hair was blow dried by the lovely Laura. She asked exactly what I wanted before we started – I usually go for a wavy blow dry but decided to go for a straight blow dry this time and I’m so glad I did! I was offered tea or coffee as soon as I sat down – winning given I was knackered and needed the caffeine boost! I was also offered a cupcake!
Laura was really efficient and thorough when blow drying my hair. I have naturally frizzy curly hair and usually when I visit a hair salon, they need to run straighteners through it post blow dry to get rid of the extra frizz. I was so impressed by Laura’s technique – she was both fast and really thorough with her technique which meant I didn’t require straighteners after. My hair came out dead straight and there was still a little volume to it which is usually killed off with the straighteners! Everyone knows I love my volume!
I was so pleased with the outcome – it is by far one of the best blow dries I’ve ever had and at £26.10 it was worth every penny and I’ll definitely be returning!
