On Saturday morning I was up bright and early to visit the new Liverpool branch of Rush Hair. The salon had opened the doors that morning to their first branch outside of London and South East.
Liverpool is infamous for its hair and beauty loving 'Scouse Birds' who are always immaculately groomed, therefore it is not surprising as to why the Rush team decided to expand their brand into Merseyside.
Having had a Hollyoaks infused press launch the night before, I headed into the salon to find it a hive of activity and excitement. I was introduced to stylist Tom who whizzed me over to a chair and got to work on my mop. If you're a long time reader of my blog, you'll have seen my many hair colours evolving over the years however, I am back to being a red head.
As my hair is currently at that 'awkward length' Tom and I decided that a nourishing treatment and colour refresh would keep me from doing anything crazy with my hair until it has grown out passed my collarbone. Within a matter of minutes a teapot brewing hot breakfast tea and a Lindt chocolate had appeared and Tom was mixing my 'glossing'* shade 5.66 'Light Red Brown' and had decided that a Keratase ' Fusio Dose'* treatment was the ticket to luscious hair.
Having had the colour applied, I sifted through the fresh pile of glossy magazines before 20 minutes passed and I whisked into the beautifully, ambient rinsing room. Seperated from the main styling area and calmly lit, Tom rinsed my colour, shampooed my hair, treated me to a lovely head massage before applying the Kerastase spray treatment.
I've never been a fan of blow dries, bouncy curls just aren't my thing and my super straight hair never holds the shape for more than an hour. Tom pivoted my opinion and styled my hair perfectly, accentuating the longer length and shaping the shorter pieces.
The glossing colour is the perfect shade for Autumn, steered away from the artificial reds that I would choose in the past, the shade is a perfect red for a dark brunette. It's spicy, dimensional and shiny. The treatment has also revitalised my colour after a battering in Ibiza and of course previous neglect. I couldn't be happier with the result. A huge thankyou to Tom from the new Rush, Liverpool salon.
