I’m not one to usually write about events as I am quite a social butterfly when it comes to heading out and meeting brands. As you all know, I’ve not had the best few months and going out has posed quite a problem but I hadn’t left the house all week and I love the events at Trevor Sorbie. When I was invited to meet with Boohoo for a pamper evening, I actually managed to get some face on and head out to meet the girls. It was a much needed night and unexpectedly the following day, and although I’m paying for it now with the most horrific dragging ache in my back, I’m looking in tip top condition.
As you know Boohoo.com have a great range of fast fashion that changes with the seasons and brings the most wanted clothes at a price point that can’t be argued. It’s a site that I have been using since its launch back in 2006, and I remember packing up my suitcase to head off to Majorca for the summer with a brand new wardrobe. Boohoo fashions really do cater to the trends of the moment, and I’m currently crushing on floaty summer dresses and pretty sandals, and you can see my top picks at the bottom of the post.
The event was held at Trevor Sorbie on Spring Gardens in Manchester. A salon that I have visited many a time, and I always get remembered by the guys and girls who work in there. In our own private area of the salon, we were treated to nail treatments and hair styles, whilst we sipped on Elderflower Prosecco and ate nibbles from The Grill On New York St. Claire from The Spa at Malmaison Hotels managed to save my grown out infills for another week and painted my nails in a hot pink called Bikini Bottoms from Jessica Nails. Although I had popped into the event with a slight wave in my hair, Mai, an award winning stylist, used ghds on my hair to create old Hollywood style waves, which I loved! She also gave me some Trevor Sorbie hair products to try out at home.
When I got home and was looking at my goody bag, I noticed two envelopes inside offering me a complimentary cut and blow as well as the opportunity to try the new Eyebrow King on the block, Ky Dolce and his KyBrows treatment. A day of content, and a Friday well spent back in Trevor Sorbie being pampering to within an inch of my life. My first treatment was having my hair trimmed. As I’m in the final stages of getting the colour out before myself and Tasha at Barn//It give my hair a brand new colour, the cut came at just the right time. A small trim, and keeping the length at the front, Sammie gave my hair the sleekest and bluntest cut that I’ve ever had. Literally sliced to perfection, it’s a look that usually I wouldn’t go for but I really fancies something that would be able to hold different styles as it’s all one length. She’s also cut in the back of my hair in a wedge style so not only does it look thicker but it will make it so easy for my to style at home. I’m still having difficulties with blow drying my own hair so this has made my life so much easier!
Ky Dolce is going to be the next big thing, mark my words. On meeting him, I felt instantly comfortable around him and we got on like a house on fire. In fact, I’m not sure how he managed to get my brows so perfect as we were laughing so much. The KyDolce Skin Clinic in Trevor Sorbie offers a wide selection of beauty treatments as well as his own brand KyBrows. Elegance Refined is the tagline, and I certainly feel that is just what he has achieved on my brows. Keeping my natural shape, and giving a beautifully defined arch that fits in my style of having a more natural brow these days, he also used a selcetion of tint colours to define but also stand out. An ombré technique, graphite grey and brown tints have been ran through my brows, with the grey tones working in conjunction with my ashy tones of my natural hair colour. They look perfect, and the great thing is that the tint should last around six weeks, which is usually the length of time that I wait before having my brows done again.
I’m feeling like a new woman right now, and it was so much needed. Although, I can’t move much today, I’m still able to swish my hair around and raise a brow to my new look!
