So I’ve had my head firmly lodged in the books as I’m almost halfway through my final year of my degree – eek! – but when Scissors Salon Christchurch invited me to their Ladies’ Night last week – I couldn’t refuse! After all, it’s essential when you’ve got a lot of work to do that you #treatyoself from time to time (as Tom and Donna taught us in Parks and Rec).
The event was on Thursday 26th November in the evening and I brought my Nan along so she could treat herself too. We were offered complementary Prosecco and some delicious canapés, both savory and sweet, which was a really nice touch.
The stylists were offering ‘hair tweaks’ to guests so I got my hair beautifully curled for a change!
In addition to this, the salon had a private colour consultation room where you could get expert advice and tips about how to achieve the colour you want, without wrecking your hair.
(Scissors Winton already helped me do this though, see my journey to silver hair posts!)
A raffle was also part of the evening with funds being raised for the Dorset and Wiltshire children’s hospices charity, Julia’s House and there were some great prizes kindly donated by several businesses.
We were kindly given a jam-packed goodie bag filled with little treats from various businesses. This not only included salon-approved haircare products but treats from The Sweets Emporium, The Bay Tree Health Store and even money off vouchers!
I also had a quick chat with Director Mia Parmar, who told me that Francesco Group’s recent campaigns are all about stressing that their salons are for people of all ages, genders and styles.
Thankyou Scissors Christchurch for giving my Nan and I a lovely evening – I’m sure we’ll be popping into one of your Salons for the specialist treatment again as we felt really welcomed and valued there!
