If you have been following my blog for a while, you will know how simple I like to keep all my beauty routines, and it is exactly the same when it comes to my hair. I just shampoo, condition and then spray in some of my favourite conditioning and detangling spray by Beaver before drying.
I am also a bit useless when it comes to keeping up with visits to the hairdressers. I am a big fan of box dyes to cover up my grey hairs, and tend to shy away from trusting someone else to do my hair for me. So, getting asked to visit a hairdressers was a bit daunting, but I gladly accepted.
Edinburgh is full of little places that take you away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, and Stockbridge is one of those places. It is a part of the city that I want to visit more often. It is full of local and independent shops and just is such a cool place to hang out. Right at the top of Stockbridge lives HeadRock Hair, a fab little hair salon.
From the moment I walked in the front door I felt right at home. Most larger salons that I have been to have felt very stuffy and you always feel hurried, whereas HeadRock felt more relaxed and friendlier. I always dread the awkward salon chats you have while you are having your hair done, but Rebecca was so easy to chat to and I felt so comfortable.
The salon has two chairs in it so it feels very spacious for the size of the shop. The decor has a very modern feel to it, with full length mirrors in front of each chair, white walls with black and grey details. I totally loved their big cosy sofa in the waiting area, which was covered in big comfy pillows.
My visit was on the launch of their new Sunday event – Blow Out On The Rocks. The event will take place on the first Sunday of every month, where you can pop into the salon for a blow dry and a drink. It is a great little Sunday treat, and is right across from the Stockbridge market so you can show off your amazing hair afterwards!
Thinking about it, I think this was my first ever proper blow dry, and I have to say, I loved it!! Who can say no to someone else washing and drying your hair for you? I also have to mention the fact that the chairs for hair washing have a back massage setting, which was amazing after a long week at work! Rebecca took such amazing care of my hair and I left feeling relaxed and over the moon with my hair.
I think I am a total convert to getting blow drys, and I certainly will be back to visit HeadRock Hair. I can’t say enough good things about my visit there. I mean, look how luscious and hair was afterwards!!
If you live in Edinburgh, or ever find yourself here, I would 100% recommend that you visit HeadRock Hair for a blow dry or a much needed hair cut (if you are like me!)
