Finding a good hairdresser can be quite the challenge. I have been in luck that since Lindsey moved her salon to London, that the wonderful team at Sixth Sense Salon have always been there to tend to my hair needs. The salon has had a refurbishment and I went along with a few other bloggers for a small event to look around.
The salon has had quite the facelift with a more selective use of their bold colour palette, which has changed the feel of the salon to make it feel more grown up somehow. There is plenty of personality though with the custom made and designed furniture in the reception area as well as custom designed wall art that was created by working with a local graffiti artist.
There is still an emphasis on the experience of the customers coming for hair services and I love seeing how the team has grown over the past few years. It’s impressive just how much Dean and Dean have invested into training everyone from technical skills such as colouring through to specialist skills such as how to deal with customers that are also cancer patients.
During the event, I had the chance to have my Energy Code reassessed with Conna-Rae and the outcome of the survey was really interesting. Since the last time I had the consultation done I have cut off more of my hair and have stopped colour treating it. It seems to have made a difference to the products that I have been recommended to use. This goes to show that it is important to update your hairdresser when things change with your hair and your lifestyle.
I then got to experience the new salon in its entirety. I was shown to the new treatment room at the back of the salon, which is like walking into a spa with soft coloured lighting and ambient music. The new massaging chairs are comfortable to recline in, which is wonderful as so often it can be really awkward trying to get comfortable when getting my hair washed at the hairdressers.
After getting my hair washed with the System Professional Hydrate Shampoo, my hair was treated with the Volumize Mask as recommended in My Energy Code consultation. This was left on my hair for ten minutes to allow me to relax and for the product to work. It was then rinsed clean before I headed for a blow dry using the Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir, the final product in My Energy Code.
To add some texture to my hair, Conna-Rae then used tongs to curl and wave my hair in sections. It was great to see how the tongs worked on my hair this length as I usually use GHD straighteners to curl my hair. I have to say that I love the new salon look almost as much as I loved my new look at the end of my visit.
At the end of the event, we were given the products that made up our personal energy codes. I’m delighted that I’ll be able to put the products to the test properly. If you’re looking for a great salon to visit then give Sixth Sense Salon a call for a complimentary consultation.
