Today I am heading over to shine hair and nails! For a little pamper Where my best friend Emma works. I am booked in for hair, nails and brows!! Very excited because:-
A) I get a catch up with the beautiful Emma and we can finally plan a night out out.
B) I’ve never actually been to her salon before!!
Shine Hair and Nails is situated in little Waltham (Essex) CM3 1BL, on a quiet business estate, it’s so nice that it’s tucked away and not set on a busy high street. Inside it’s decorated in a very chic vintage style, I was offered a drink upon arrival and sat in one of the comfy chairs in the salon listening to a bit of Ed Sheeran, perfect!!
I am actually a very lucky girl because both my best friends are hair dressers!!! When I had hair extensions my friend Michelle would do them, she’s a pro (thanks Michelle), however I am now more about the au naturel look, so don’t have the hair extensions anymore (god I miss them though).
So first up is my hair….. I have been addicted to the home dye kits for as long as I can remember, which in the past has resulted in me having to strip the colour out of my hair!!! I am now left with hair that has much darker ends than the rest of my hair…. sorry Em I think you’re in for a tough one.
I then had my brows done, since brows nowadays are so Important!!! I like to try to keep mine as up to date as possible!! So I was in for a little wax and tint! And this is the first time Emma has done my brows although I totally trust her because she has great brows!!
Last up it was nail time, there were loads of colours to choose from, and I finally settled on a gossip girl pink! Throughout my 4 hours at shine it was really busy, and I noticed that they have a lot of repeat customers who they all know on a first name basis (nice little personal touch). There is a really nice relaxed atmosphere at shine and lots of general chit chat that involves everyone.
I throughly enjoyed my time at shine hair and nails, everyone is so friendly, and they include you in every conversation. I was offered hot and cold drinks, and there was an array of magazines to flick through.
It is so nice to have one colour hair after battling for so long with different colours!!! I have already booked in again, and can’t wait for another little pamper session there.
