New Hair at Noel Higgins

My hair has been wrecking my head lately.Last time I got it cut, I really didnt get much length taken off and had it layered. Last week, the length finally got to me so I decided to treat myself to a belated birthday present.

As luck would have it, an email from Deal Rush found its way to me and I saw a salon I had wanted to go to for years had a special offer on. The salon was Noel Higgins Hairdressing in Blackrock,Co.Dublin. The deal was Wash, Restyle and the choice between two treatments for €35. Straight away I ordered it and booked my appointment. 

I also thought this would be the perfect opportunity to lighten up my hair colour. To be honest, I really didnt know much more than that. I toyed with the idea of balayage but wasn't 100% sold on it. The best thing to do in these situations is to take the advice of the colourist.

I arrived for my appointment and was showed to a seat by the lovely receptionist, no sooner was I sitting down, my colourist and stylist for the few hours was introducing herself. Her name was Joanne and we immediately hit it off.

I told her what I was looking for in a hair colour and cut. Working and looking after the little man, I need something relatively low maintenance. I asked about balayage and she recommended it wouldn't be suitable.  Grand by me, so I asked what would she recommend. Highlights were the order of the day, and a fair few of them. Something, I hadn't done in years so I was a bit anxious. Instead of going blonde blonde, I opted for caramels and toffees with a hint of blonde. 

For the treatment, I opted for the Keratherapy Deep Conditioning mask, which I really liked. I can definitely see a difference in that my hair has no frizz in it. 

It turned out gorgeous, I am seriously in love with my hair. I also have the option of adding more highlights if I want to. Here are before and afters

As you can see that is a massive difference. I was a bit worried how I would react seeing the brighter hair but it feels like I have always had it. I'm even thinking I may get a few more in.

The salon itself looks tiny from the outside but it is pretty big inside.

.I found any staff I bumped into were lovely. I even had a chat with the man himself about the 12 week blowdry. The entire restyle and colour cost me €115, not a bad price at all considering all I had done. I'll definitely be revisiting the salon asap to get the 12 week blowdry.

If you're looking for a good salon on the south side, I would definitely recommend here to anyone.
