As much as I love being a Mummy, sometimes I like to have a couple of hours to myself. Just a little bit of quiet time, a chance to relax and even pamper myself with a new toe nail polish or even getting my eyebrows threaded. When I received an email inviting me to an evening with the Andrea Beers team at their Barnt Green boutique in South Birmingham, I was delighted and readily agreed to attend.
Upon arrival, I was warmly welcomed into the boutique by the team and met Andrea herself, who is every inch as glamorous as the boutique’s decor. What struck me about the boutique is how stylish it was but without it being pretentious. I felt really welcome and the atmosphere in the salon was friendly and relaxing.
With a glass of champers in hand, Andrea spoke to me about my hair and what my usual hair care routine was. Andrea told me about the benefits of not shampooing my hair every other day and reducing the number of times I use my hair straighteners and gave me some tips on how to care for my hair better and how to protect my hair from the brutal heat of the straighteners.
The very friendly Amber washed my hair and treated my locks to an Olaplex treatment. Olaplex is a wonderful salon professional hair treatment that rebuilds strength and structure to the hair. Amber left the treatment on for a few minutes whilst I was pampered on the massage chair and she spoke to me about what I wanted to do with my hair. I agreed to having a bit of length cut off and asked Amber to work her magic with a bouncy blow dry.
After watching on in awe as Amber coiffed my hair into beautiful curls with a bit of height at the crown, I wanted to pick her up and take her home! I loved it. My head felt light and my hair was bouncy and shiny. A real treat.
It’s amazing what a good hair cut and blow dry can do for your confidence. I really liked how comfortable I felt in the salon and had complete faith in Amber to cut my hair. I spoke to her throughout the appointment and it was clear how much she loved her job and enjoyed working at the salon. It’s so good to see someone genuinely enjoying their job and loving what they do for their clients.
After finding out what products had been used on my hair and finishing off my glass of champagne, I headed home with a huge smile on my face and a urge to do braver things with my hair. Watch out Pinterest, here I come!

Huge thanks to Andrea, Amber and the rest of the team at the Barnt Green boutique. I had a wonderful couple of hours at the salon and really love my new hair!
