York, UK

Would you believe me if I told you I hadn't had my hair cut in four months... Eeek! Well it's true! Or it was true... Up until a few weeks ago, when I was invited down to RUSH York for a complimentary cut & blow dry to celebrate their grand opening.

Upon entering the salon I was instantly impressed with the sleek modern, blogger friendly you could say, interiors. The slick black tiles and bright white walls put me instantly at ease - I knew I was going to be in for a treat at RUSH York. There's something about a classy interior isn't there that fills you with excitement?

Before doing anything, the salons owner Jess Graville sat  me down to chat through my hair care routine (which is pretty minial - eek!) and what I wanted to get out of the salon that day. I'd confessed to Jess that a hairdresser hasn't touched my hair for at least four months & that I was feeling a little stuck in a rut when it came to my locks. I wanted to keep the length however wanted to minimize the weight, because boy can it be annoying - Weirdly I have quite fine hair, but I have a hell of a load of it, as Jess was later to find out, so she suggested taking an inch off the bottom as well as putting in a few long layers.

I was given a protective cloak and lead through to the hair washing area where I was treated to a Kerastase hair treatment & a relaxing head massage. I need Dan to take a lesson in head massages, because they're seriously the best bit about going to the hairdressers... Who's with me?
After feeling super refreshed, I then sat back down with Jess who began snipping away at my tresses. She didn't take too much of the ends, however it was just enough for my hair to feel healthy and bouncy again, even more so with the long length layers. Along with my curly blow dry it's safe to say Jess made me leave feel like a princess leaving... If only it wasn't raining!

I had a fab time at RUSH York, the whole experience was amazing, not only the haircut but getting the chance to chat to Jess about her background & how she came to manage the York store. She was so lovely & friendly & I'm sure her positivity will lead RUSH York onto amazing things.

If you're on the lookout for a new hairdressers or somewhere to treat yourself, I'd 100% recommend RUSH. I  had the pleasure of popping along to the York salon however there are so many across the country, you can find your local salon here.
