Best Hair and Beauty Salon RUSH

I’m here today to sing some long overdue praises of a well known brand who I have had the pleasure of getting to know since starting my blogging journey. This brand has establishments all over London’s best streets and boroughs as well as nationwide. I’m talking about RUSH Hair and Beauty. These guys have looked after me so well and I am here to share some highlights from a few stores I’ve visited over the past couple of months. For me, the best hair and beauty salon around is RUSH!

RUSH Holborn Salon

I’ve been to a number of RUSH salons to have treatments, cuts and blow drys, but one of the best in my opinion is the RUSH Holborn Salon. This is a brand new addition to the family with a lovely space and atmosphere. It follows the design of the other salons, and is so fresh and clean (if that makes sense) for a salon. I met with stylist Georgie for my appointment here, so if you book make sure to ask for her! Photos from this appointment are down below.

Before we get there, I want to tell you a bit about the Piccadilly Circus branch. This is the main hub where all the cool shit goes down. This is the real epicentre of RUSH Hair and Beauty in London and they always host fabulous events, just like this one.

Just before Christmas, RUSH Piccadilly hosted a wonderful evening open to everyone to test out some new clients. One just happened to be Glitterlips, so you know how this one turned out…

Boom! All the sparkles!

The RUSH Piccadilly salon also has a wonderful space upstairs for beauty treatments. This can be anything from relaxing pedicures to microdermabrasion facials. I tried out the microdermabrasion machine on my arm the last time I went in there, so I’m thinking this might be something to try to rejuvinate my skin after the cold snap.

Now I’m going to show you a few shots from my last cut and blowdry from the Holborn salon with Georgie…

I’m always excited to try out Kerastase products which are stocked in plentiful supply at RUSH. They have the finest treatments if your hair is needing a boost.

My hair never felt so good after this cut, it had been about 8 months since my last one (shhh!) so this was long overdue.

Let me know in the comments about what you thought- are RUSH the best Hair and Beauty Salon? If you haven’t been to visit yet, find your nearest salon and make an appointment, I’m sure you are due for a haircut just like me!

One last thing to share with you all, I am so proud to feature on RUSH’s website as one of the top fashion and beauty Instagram bloggers to look out for in 2017, how cool is that?!

The Dubai Series: Prepping for an Exotic Getaway

I’ve been working really hard recently on a very secret project. This project involves a plane, an exotic destination and some pretty awesome products. I have had to keep this a secret over the past couple of weeks as our holiday has been an undercover mission to surprise some family who are living in Dubai! Paul and I booked the flights ten days before flying out and have been working with just one of our Dubai residents to organise and surprise the rest of them. So here is the first instalment in what I’m calling The Dubai Series: Prepping for an Exotic Getaway.

With just ten days to plan for our getaway, my first stop was travel money. There is only one place I go to for any travel money, it beats all the other competitors out there and you are guaranteed a fantastic rate. They are Ace Fx and they are located on my journey home in Canary Wharf. I reserved my Dirhams and got a great rate as usual.

 

Also in preparation, I reached out to my favourite hair salon to help get my hair travel ready-

The day before the flight, I went to visit the Aldwych salon to get a cut and blowdry. My hairdresser Craig gave me the top treatments from the Kerastase range, and one hour later my hair was fabulous and ready to go!

Next, onto the nails.

Barry M of course were the top choice when prepping for my exotic getaway. I used 2 colours from the new coconut infusion range- Bikini for my toes and Starfish for my hands. These are both lovely colours for a weekend getaway as they last so well and the colours would match what I had packed in my suitcase. The new range is infused with coconut oil to help hydrate and strengthen your nails.

Finally, on the morning of the flight, Nair was to the rescue!

I was lucky enough to try out the new Argan oil nourish range, and I was so happy with the results. I used the facial cream for my upper lip, the glide on for my underarms and for my bikini area and the shower power cream for my legs. The cream is super easy to apply, and you can wash it off in the shower after just ten mins. It really was the final touch to my preparations for Dubai, and I couldn’t wait to get on the plane!

 

Here is a snap from the airport. I chose to fly in my favourite shirt from Her Boutique, it’s so comfy and had me feeling holiday ready with the bright colours.

Stay tuned for Part 2 in the Dubai Series as up next it’s my travel essentials!

Blonde Hair Pale Skin – an incredible night!

I really have had an incredible few weeks recently with blogging. I have been to so many wonderful events and also had some fabulous experiences too. This post is all about blonde hair and pale skin as I visit RUSH hair and beauty salon and attend Em Ford’s fan event at YouTube headquarters all in one night.

I recently went to RUSH on Piccadilly Circus to have my hair done and after the incredible results I really wanted to do something with them again. RUSH have opened a brand new salon in West Hampstead and so I was invited along to their opening week to get my hair done. I tied this in with a very exciting event hosted by Em Ford of My Pale Skin Blog.
After work I headed to the new RUSH salon, it’s a 5 minute walk from West Hampstead station so really easy to get to. The salon is brand new and so classy. It is fresh and open ¬†with plenty of space. I was greeted by the staff who took my coat and we discussed what style and treatment I was going to have. We decided on loose waves to go with my glam dress.

The hair wash and treatment using the Kerastase products was divine. The treatment was massaged gently into my scalp, such a relaxing feeling! After this my hair was curled using the roll and pin technique. This gives the hair extra volume and bounce.

I had a lovely green tea, sadly no chocolate as it’s not gluten free, but RUSH really do go above and beyond when it comes to your appointment.

Fluffed, prepped and dried I was ready to hit the city just in time for Em Ford’s fan event!

I was so thrilled to get an invitation to this event, I love Em and My Pale Skin Blog so this was turning into a very special night.
I arrived at YouTube space London just in time to get to Em’s Q and A where she answered all our questions about her blog and her skin progress. It was great to see her and how far she has come from such hard work. She is a real inspiration to the blogging I want to do and so I am looking to get stuck in and start doing some makeup and beauty videos on my YouTube channel very soon!

After Em’s Q and A I headed over to the makeup station. Guests could have their hair, nails and makeup done so of course I had to do my makeup!
