I’m not sure that there’s anything quite as luxurious as having your hair blown dry. Sitting back and letting someone else brush, tease and gloss your hair just feels like such a treat, add in a glass of champers, and I’m practically in heaven. So, as you can imagine, when I was kindly invited to the gorgeous Electric salon nestled in Harvey Nichols, I was rather excited!
The Electric Salon is tucked into the front corner of Harvey Nichols’ Beauty Hall. It’s a little haven from the bustling store, so, as you relax and enjoy a little primping, you can people watch everyone sampling the most divine perfumes and makeup. When I popped in for my appointment, the weather outside was the definition of miserable – rain, wind, and basically everything else that leaves your hair flat and fuzzy, so as you can imagine, I was in desperate need of a bit of hair help! Thankfully, Electric’s wonderful Scott and John came to my rescue!
I was greeted with a much needed glass of icy champagne, and then after catching up a little, I was led over to for a shampoo. The salon uses the Electric haircare range, of which I’m such a fan! Since my ends were feeling a little frazzled, Scott used the Hydrating Shampoo, and followed it with Electric’s restricting treatment. As my ends were soaking up all the goodness, I was treated to the most heavenly head massage, which made all of my stresses completely melt away. John then discussed exactly what I was after with the blow-dry (smooth, glossy with a bit of volume) and got to work. I’ve never seen the technique he used before, but it was genius. Rather than the regular barrel brush from root to tip, he used a shorter brush to achieve volume at the roots, then finished everything off with the barrel brushes. The result was smooth shiny hair that had an amazing amount of bounce. I do wish I wasn’t the world’s most awkward selfie-taker, and it was an absolute work of art! I felt so good with my new ‘do that I just had to go have a wonder around the store, and ended up leaving, not only with a glossy mane, but a new pair of winter boots, and a pot of the Restructuring Treatment too!
A Champagne Blow Dry at the Electric Hairdressing Salon is priced at £40
