The Ultimate Hair Makeover at Daniel Galvin
December 12, 2017
December the 6th marked a life changing event for my hair to say the least. As a VIP international ambassador for Luxuria Lifestyle I attended London’s top hair salon in Mayfair for a cut, colour and blow dry. I entered the salon feeling a little embarrassed about the abysmal situation that was hiding under my hat…
To show how truly amazing the team behind the salon really is. And to give you an idea on how ghastly my Barnet was… Here it is:
The team welcomed me in, took my coat and hat (reluctantly I removed my hat from my frizzy hair/ dull looking hair) and sat myself down in front of a very shiny mirror.
I was lucky enough to have the fabulous Ellie who has been styling and colouring hair for 10 years, so it was safe to say, that I was in good hands. She talked me through my colour consultation and got me excited for my new hairdo.
The whole process was very relaxing; the staff were exceptionally organised. In total, my hair was done and I was looking glamorous in the space of three hours, which flew by thanks for the all hands on deck team.
Ellie and I opted for my hair back to blonde, which I was super excited about. She used a technique called ‘brick work’ which meant the colour was naturally blended into my usual hair colour.
A toner was then used to calm the brightness down, along with a gloss, to shine my once gloomy hair. Washed, massaged and treated by the lovely Callum I was finally ready for the last chapter.
I have visited some pretty amazing salons, but I have never walked into a salon and felt so welcomed and I have never walked out of a salon feeling so confident and knowledgeable about my hair.
Facts that you should know about your hair products by Daniel himself:
Most products will have three nasty ingredients most of us wash our hair with on a daily basis. I was shocked to hear that these three horrible chemicals are in most everyday hair “care” brands.
SLS – Commonly found in oven cleaner.
Propylene Glycol – Commonly found in antifreeze
Parabens – Preservatives known to be carcinogenic
No thank you!
The good news is Daniel has eliminated these chemicals from his new Highlighted hair range.
“Highlighted hair needs customised products that nourish the more absorbent highlights. I have formulated my products to be kind to hair; we use the mildest ingredients possible to achieve the simplest effect for your ultimate beauty asset.”
It was an absolute pleasure to finish my evening by meeting the man himself. He is a true inspiration to his team, all trained through his own personalised academy. It was lovely to see every one of his team so passionate about their job at the salon and every client that strolled passed me had smiles beaming across their faces.
And that was that! You can book an appointment via the contact details below… My hair is finally friends with me again.
