I'm very lucky that I come from a family with genetically great hair. My grandma is almost 77 and has the thickest hair ever. My mother is exactly the same. I wouldn't change my thick hair as I love to change my hair so much. It has definitely taken a battering over the last year with bleach, colour, hair extensions, being grown then being chopped off! I'm lucky that I get to experience lots of different hair styles because of the amazing hair stylists that approach me. My latest new style is courtesy of Rogue Hair Belfast. Rogue is a salon I've passed many times. Located a few doors up from the iconic Lavery's pub, the salon is handy to both the city centre and Queen's University. In fact, I parked on Botanic Avenue and walked round to the salon. There is also on street parking outside the salon (2 hours max so great if you are getting a cut/blow dry etc).
The salon is lovely and non-fuss. It's bright and modern without being pretentious. Owned by husband and wife team Karen & Jody, the salon are multiple award winners. In 2009 they won the L'OReal Colour Trophy and Karen is presently one of only two L'OReal ID artists in Northern Ireland. This means she's ahead of the trend and an expert in her field. Karen did my hair at the salon. Firstly, she completely put me at ease because she's such a lovely person. She is really chatty and made my visit very enjoyable. Karen noticed that my hair has become very matte and flat because of my fondness of home colours (my grey comes through after 3 weeks) so she opted to lift my colour. We cleansed my hair which lifted all of the darkness out of it. If you have ever had your hair cleansed you will know that it leaves your hair multiple colours but gives you a lighter base to work with. Karen then coloured my roots to a chocolate brown colour and matched this in with a more copper toned colour through the ends. This gave some natural tone and warmth to my hair that is really was lacking.
I absolutely LOVE my colour and Karen gave me one of the best blowdries ever. It was big and sexy. It proceeded to get better and lasted 4 days. Karen used lots of great L'Oreal products and gifted me with Techni Art Full Volume Extra Mousse that she used in my hair. I love anything that gives root volume and this is the KING of mousse. Applied straight into the root, it gives hair grit and hold at the root. This product is key for anyone that loves big sexy hair and definitely helped to keep my blow-dry perfect.
