Last week I booked myself in for a cut and colour at the new Trevor Sorbie salon in Bristol. I was excited about getting my bad dye job sorted, and to see how the new salon looked. What I hadn’t expected was to come away feeling emotional, that a simple hair do, could make me feel so wonderful.
My appointment was with Kelly, senior colour technician at Trevor Sorbie, who took me through all the options for my hair. We discussed, colour, technique, checked through my hair inspiration until we were both satisfied that the look I was after was achievable.
I settled down to a cup of coffee and a read through Kinfolk whilst Kelly mixed up the colour. A light brown ‘root stretch’ was first applied, to cover up those grey hairs. Once rinsed off, then Kelly hand painted ‘ballyage’ blonde to the ends, to lift my hair and give it the appearance of fuller hair.
Finally, adding in some baby highlights through the crown to tie the two colours together. Once ‘cooked’ and the colour deepened, it was washed off and an ash toner was applied to knock the warmth out.
Then it was over to Georgia who cut and dried my hair, to finally reveal my new colour. To say I was a bit emotional was an understatement. Both Kelly and Georgia had listened and got what I wanted to achieve. Never have I left the hairdressers before with such a feeling. I shall be going back!
But for me, the star was the salon itself. Utterly beautiful, and so well designed and a relaxing environment. I wanna move into that courtyard! Look at those crittal windows!
