It seems that last Thursday was the night to be seen in Manchester as a whole host of events were taking place in the city centre: fashion bloggers, lifestyle bloggers, fitness bloggers, beauty bloggers, no matter your field, there was a Manchester blogger event for you. I could tell you that I chose the Rush Hair blogger event because I’m eternally searching for a hairdresser a cut above the rest, or a place with fringe benefits, but I’ll stop with the puns: I’ve been boring everyone about my distaste for my hair’s current state for far too long, I thought it would be a good opportunity to seek advice.
Rush Hair Manchester Blogger Event
I’ve been bemoaning my short hair for the past few weeks, not only am I growing out the length, I’m also growing out my fringe (and desperately trying to avoid the temptation to have it cut back in). At the moment, I have one style: poker straight and clipped to the side. I’d been told that stylists would be hand throughout the event to offer advice, but I didn’t expect to leave this Manchester blogger event feeling optimistic and armed with skills to tackle my bonce and love it once more.
Arriving in Manchester city centre, I met Katie from LifeonVista before entering the salon, a bright oasis away from Manchester’s famous rain. Spacious, airy and gleaming, we were among the first guests to arrive and stood self-consciously nursing a glass of prosecco whilst eyeing-up the largest canapés I’ve ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on. Within minutes, a member of the Rush team, Casey, had put me at ease by sitting me in a hairdresser’s chair and asked me to moan about explain what frustrated me about my hair.
It was a pleasure to meet some new bloggers: Rachel from Ode2Fitness, Laura from HairWonderfulDay and familiar Manchester blogger, Fikki from Pasttime Bliss who I met at the Mottram Hall event. I lost track of time chatting away before realising that the event’s attendees had started to undergo spectacular hair transformations: curls, curls everywhere! And that was when I met Lucy, who within thirty minutes, had taken me from drab to feelin’ fab!
What do you think?
Since the event, I haven’t pinned my hair back once and have started to embrace the side sweep. I will be returning to Rush, after all it’s not often I find a hairdresser that can make me feel so, so good about a grown out fringe and hairstyle. A ladies cut and finish with one of Rush’s stylist is priced at £44, slightly more expensive than what I’d usually pay, but Rush are offering 50% off for new customers with the code: RUSH50.
Thanks to the team at Tank PR and the staff at RUSH for a wonderful evening!
