Not only do I love getting my hair done… but so does my boyfriend haha.. Who doesn’t love a bit of ‘me’ time and to come away looking great? So yes if you haven’t already realised my boyfriend is Ainslee who owns Elitepro Personal Training Company and we love taking some time out of our busy schedules to go and have our hair done together.. Normally when we go it consists of Ainslee eating his way through the snack menu whilst I take hours to get my colour and cut done… but this time instead of Ainslee having his hair shaved short all over he went for something a little different…..
So Ben who previously Managed Umberto Giannini who has now moved to Manage Regis, based in Manchesters House Of Fraser department store advised Ainslee to grow out his hair as he wanted to achieve a new look after having his hair the same for years. Ben told Ainslee that if he grows his hair out for 4 months he would be able to ‘Perm his hair straight’ and this is exactly what he did.
As Ainslee has Caribbean roots his hair is very curly ‘afro like’ So when left to grow can look a little crazy… as you can see from his before photo. After hiding his hair under a hat for months we couldn’t wait to see the finished look.
HOW THE LOOK WAS ACHIEVED
When you hear the word ‘Perm’ you think of curly hair, right? Well not this time… Normally when a perming solution is adding to hair you would put the hair in rollers and it would mould to that shape, but this time the perming solution was put onto Ainslee’s hair and combed straight, continuously until it had been on long enough for the solution to activate and be washed off.
After this process Ben then shaved the sides to a short number 1 and blended it up towards the longer hair. Finally he had a blow dry and finished off with straighteners.
Ainslee was worried about maintenance of his new hair style, but Ben reassured him and said all he needs to do is use a good shampoo and conditioner, make sure he uses a heat protector and after drying he can use straighteners to help with styling and to get the achieved look.
Ainslee has had his hair like this for around a week now and absolute loves it! So if you want your husband, boyfriend or partner to have a bit of a transformation I really recommend Regis Salon on Manchester!
Not only are they all amazing at hair but they are great and ensuring you will be able to maintain your hair at home and also make sure that it fits in with your lifestyle.
Meanwhile I enjoyed a choice of drinks and snacks from the light bites menu whilst I was having my hair done!
