On Wednesday I attended a wonderful event at boutique Leith hair salon Austen Thomson, The Big Hair Do, a nationwide celebration of hair salons organised by Layered and Creative Head, aiming to encourage people to try out new season styles, colours and products.
Austen Thomson’s ethos is to Inspire and Evolve, with contemporary fashion trends translated into wearable hair styles, a wide selection of cutting edge product, and hugely knowledgable and talented stylists at hand. I had a wonderful time at the event and even discovered a new miracle product, read on to find out more!
Austen Thomson itself is a stunning salon with modern, luxurious interiors, and was fully kitted out for the Big Hair Do night, providing delicious food and drink from Malmaison Hotel in Edinburgh. Guests had a chance to mingle with other industry experts and the wonderful staff and PR team, as well as receive hair consultations and treatments at dedicated Style Stations. I was looked after by the truly wonderful Christie, a long-term loyal stylist at Austen Thomson Hair, who immediately jumped on my pastel pink hair!
She decided to experiment with the new Scwarzkopf Blonde Me Instant Blush Blonde Beautifiers, spray on semi-permanent pastel hair colours that are simply applied and blow dried out, specifically using the Ice shade, which is usually used to neutralise brassy tones, but turned me into a rose and lilac my little pony! I instantly fell in love and purchased the product for myself; I can’t wait to try it out at home!
