Voluminous hair at The Rainbow Room

Last night I was invited along to The Rainbow Room to be pampered (in association with The Rainbow Room going into partnership with Dyson Hair).

I have to admit, I was a nervous wreck, after having such a negative experience at a hairdressers salon recently in my home town; I was determined not to let that one bad experience put me off going to a hairdressers again (plus I was really looking forward to meeting the lovely Jordanne who I was going to the event with) so I went along!

The lady who approached me and introduced herself to me as the marketing director of the Uddingston Rainbow Room salon was nothing but nice to me! What a remarkably lovely woman she was! She was chatty, friendly, informative and such a talented hairdresser too! She talked me through absolutely everything she was doing, told me tons about the Dyson Hairdryer and even gave me a cheeky wee head massage as she made sure the nutrients and product got right in to my roots! I felt like such a V.I.P!

The Dyson Hairdryer is designed for fast drying without using as much heat as your average dryer! I was totally impressed with the results!

The lady who was doing my hair continuously complimented my hair and made me feel good about myself, she was genuinely interested in me and about what I do and she said something that will always stick with me: “At a hairdressers, I think it’s not all about making you look good, but about making you feel good too”. This totally reassured me and relaxed me and allowed me to just enjoy being pampered and not worry about anything else.

My finished look was absolutely tremendous; voluminous hair eat your heart out! I had never rocked this look before and I totally embraced it. I felt like a completely different woman! As the press and PR companies took photos of me, I felt like such a superstar, so glamorous & confident! Such an unusual feeling for me: It’s amazing what a change of hairstyle can do for you!

Not only did I have a phenomenal time at The Rainbow Room International Supersonic event but I met a great friend who I just clicked with right away! She was so humble, chatty & we had tons in common! I can’t wait to meet up with Jordanne again!

A huge thanks to The Rainbow Room for making me look good AND feel good. I couldn’t praise you enough!

    You look absolutely incredible in your photos, Charlene! You look like a vintage pin-up girl crossed with a Disney princess hehe! I’m so glad that this place made up for the awful experience you had at your last hairdressers and that they treated you like a VIP! Great to hear that you and Jordanne got on so well too, she’s a darling!
