Nene Local’s HQ yesterday was set up within the QL salon in Wellingborough. As editor, Helen Dawson, had a day of pampering and the ‘no mirror challenge’ – read the first part of the story here – Wellingborough Salon Provide a New Look.
I parked up and did a Facebook live on Welcome to Wellingborough then set foot inside Diana’s Gym on Finedon Road. QL salon is within the gym, so plenty of easy parking!
When I arrived the mirrors were already covered and another lady was in having the challenge too.
Our hair was stripped of any colour so that a new colour could be applied, I said I was happy with anything, but you can opt for a more natural look and no colour stripping at all.
Once stripped of colour my hair was dried, the chemicals used seem very gentle as there was no ill effects on my hair. Janine, who is an award winning colour technician began doing my colours, all in top secret of course!
As my colour began to work, I headed over to Lu at the nail bar and had my nails done – lots of sparkles for me!
My nails were completed then it was back to Janine where she cut, blow dried and finished my hair. Make up was expertly applied by Lu and I was ‘complete’ and ready for the big reveal!
It was such a fun day. Sitting without the mirror is a weird experience as you sometimes see a flick of hair in your periferal vision as it is styled…one begins to wonder – was I pink? purple? red? multicoloured? The whole is day spent wondering and you build a picture in your mind of what you look like. I have to say I was totally wrong what I had imagined but loved what I had!
QL Salon make a video of your day plus take lots of before and after photos, which are great as a reminder of your day. I loved seeing friends react to my photos and I’m already wondering what to have done at the salon next!
