A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to spend some time with the team from Rush Hair and Beauty in Birmingham City Centre for a much needed hour of hair pampering. I had been invited in for an appointment with Richard, the Style Director in the salon and I was really looking forward to it.
It was my first visit to Rush Hair and Beauty and for some reason, I got completely lost trying to find the salon. Seriously, it’s on Corporation Street which is one of the main shopping streets in Birmingham. After rushing in fearing I was late, I was warmly greeted by the Reception staff and had a few minutes to catch my breath.
The salon is bright and modern looking with seats and mirrors along both sides of the room. Towards the back of the salon is a dedicated area for hair washing and head massaging. After a short consultation with Richard, I reclined in a big comfy chair and had my hair washed by Shanice. I really enjoy someone else washing my hair, I find it so relaxing and I particularly welcomed the gentle but firm head massage. It’s such a treat and it really helps me relax.
From my earlier consultation, I had asked Richard for a trim and a bouncy blow dry. I’ve recently had my hair cut into quite a short bob so didn’t want much taken off the length, it just needed a little TLC.
I was really impressed with Richard’s style, he was warm and friendly and knew exactly what I wanted with my hair cut. He gave me some ideas on how to style my hair and some useful tips about the products that he had used too. I particularly liked the Redken One United Multi-Benefit Treatment as it has so many uses. I wasn’t protecting my hair before blow drying it but after seeing the results of this spray on treatment, I’ll never go back, it’s brilliant stuff.
I was really pleased with how my hair looked at the end of the appointment. Richard had cut it well and the blow dry was great. I loved the look from the back and was really pleased to see how short it was. The hour literally flew by and before I knew it, it was time to leave.
I had a great morning at Rush Hair and Beauty in Birmingham. The staff are attentive and friendly, engaging and I felt at ease and relaxed. If you’re looking for a new salon to go to in Birmingham City Centre, I’d recommend visiting the team at Rush.
