Last week I was invited to go along to Umberto Giannini at Harvey Nichols in Manchester for a cut and blow dry. I was so excited to go as it’s not like visiting your average salon. On entrance you walk through the ground floor of Harvey Nichols, through the beauty department and then you come to the entrance of the beautiful Umberto Giannini. Kirsten then lead me through to the salon where I was met by Ben, the salon Manager and stylist. We then had a hair consultation and discussed everything.. From what I don’t like about my hair to what I dream of having my hair like to what I’m doing this afternoon (these guys are so friendly). This gave Ben a good vision of exactly what I wanted, so that I could let him work his magic on me.
Kirsten then lead me over to the backwash, where she gave me THE most relaxing head massage and treatment, I was then left to relax for a few minutes in their super relaxing reclining chairs so that the treatment could soak in fully before rinsing it out. The treatment made my hair feel so soft (usually I have to tear a brush through it) I was then lead back to my chair where Ben then offered me a glass of Champagne… I had to refuse as I was driving 😦 *Maybe next time*
Ben then worked his magic, listening to everything I said I wanted! Who else has been to the hairdressers and felt like they haven’t been listened to or just generally hated their hair cut? I can guarantee at Umberto Giannini this will not be the case. Cut and Blow Dry prices start from as little as £36 which for the experience, luxury and high end standard of the hair cut I believe you are getting a bargain.
On departure of the salon the gorgeous Claire from the salon gave me a gift of a massive beauty hamper, I have since tried out most of the products from the box and I have to say my hair is feeling in tip top condition right now. You can buy all of these products from the shop in Harvey Nichols located in the beauty department. My favourite items where definitely the volume range. Shampoo, conditioner and volume in a bottle. Perfect for making sure you have FABULOUS hair for a night out.
I am heading back to the salon next week so watch this space for my colour blog.. Helping you know the difference balayage, ombre, dip dye and high lights. So that you know exactly what to ask for and where to get it done *Umberto Giannini*
