Yes, you read the title right, it's been 7 years since I have had my hair cut. I was put off hairdressers for a long time because of one scissor happy lady. I was 18 and wanted a change from my long boring hair so asked if she could take it up to my shoulders.....
I came out with a short short bob! I was mortified and being quite quiet when I was younger I didn't say a word to her and just sobbed on the way home, but recently I have been chatting on Twitter to Matt who has opened Brooklyn Salon in Chester which is located above his Brooklyn Barber shop. Matt asked me if I would like to come and have my hair done by them when the salon was open, so I agreed.
I was welcomed by a lady called Mel and quickly introduced to Katie who would be doing my hair for me, both of them made me feel welcome and at ease. I had a look around the New York themed salon which has been decorated beautifully with a mix of old vintage items and new fixtures and fittings.....
So, Katie then chatted to me about what I wanted to have done, I didn't want to go too short, putting it politely I DID NOT WANT A BOB! Apart from that I just wanted some shape to my hair, and I couldn't be more happy with the results.
I knew I had long hair but this photo was a shock, how had I left it like this for so long?!?!
I absolutely love it! Katie did a fantastic job and made me feel so comfortable, I think she likes to talk just as much as me so the time flew by! I am that happy that I have booked in for a colour done in 4 weeks as Katie noticed my botched at home colour job was, how do I put this, bloody awful!
I will definitely be spreading the word about this gorgeous little salon and I will not be letting my hair get too long and unloved again!
Thank you Matt for getting in touch with me.
What do you think guys?
