When Lu Buckley, the Creative Director of QL (formerly known as the Quattro Lounge) got in touch regarding advertising I didn’t know how the client/magazine relationship was about to pan out….
We were putting our heads together to think of an angle that would grip the readers. The QL salon does an amazing amount of services and have some great specialisms.
- Hair replacement for men
- Hair Brightening
- Afro specialists
- Lip Reconstruction
- Nail Extensions
- Pedicure and Manicure
- Cut & Blow Dry
- Restyle & Colour
- Eye lash extensions
And the “no mirror challenge“ which I believe to be a unique service in the area. The “no mirror challenge” consists of a new hair style, a new hair colour… nails, full make up, maybe the addition of some eyelashes too – in fact the full works!!
All with the client completely oblivious as of course the mirror has been covered up!
It’s an amazing treat for someone who is stuck in a rut with their look and in need of inspiration, maybe someone who needs a treat after a bad few months, or someone in need of a confidence boost. It would also make a fabulous gift for Christmas for someone special.
What’s the Angle?
After looking at the range of services, Lu offered me the “no mirror challenge” which I have accepted. Next Wednesday I shall put myself in the capable hands of Lu and Janine who already have some secret ideas about what they plan to do….
There is a short appointment the week before to do a patch test and strand test on your hair. We also discussed likes and dislikes. I said I was quite happy with colours so long as my hair was pale around my face, happy with a little restyle. My only limit was, as a part-time reflexologist I have to keep my nails super short so could not have any acrylics applied. The ladies are happy to keep within your wishes so it’s OK if you’re not too adventurous!
I’ll have some before and after pictures done to share with you next week…. watch this space!
Take a look at some transformations below….
