The Best Blowdry + Hair Styling | Shoreditch, London

28 February 2019

After my previous post on my new hair, I thought I'd share an incredible gifted experience that I was fortunate enough to receive on my boyfriend's birthday. I travelled to London early February to celebrate my boyfriend's 20th - we had an incredible time and I vlogged the weekend over on my Youtube channel (watch the LONDON VLOG here). I'm still extremely happy with my decision to get my hair chopped and the most dreamy balayage. Check out my last blog post to read about the entire process and how amazing Roz Loz Hair is!

Anyway, on the day of my boyfriend's birthday, we travelled to Shoreditch to find Figaro - an award-winning salon on Old Street. Voted Top Choice Hair Salon of 2019 in London, Figaro are a hair and beauty salon that pride themselves with their wonderful professionals/stylists. After choosing a wash, blowdry and style, I jumped at the chance to get my hair done beautifully for the celebratory day ahead!


Located on Old Street, Shoreditch, Figaro London was in a fab area that wasn't too busy and very relaxing. I love finding a quiet street in London during the day because it's very rare! As soon as I entered the salon, the staff were extremely friendly, very accommodating and instantly offered me a drink before I got the chance to sit waiting for my appointment. I was so happy with how exceptional the customer service was at Figaro London that I'd highly recommend this salon to anyone looking for hair, nails or beauty in London/surrounding areas. Moreover, I acknowledged that the prices were super affordable compared to everywhere I've seen in London - especially when you are receiving high quality and getting amazing service from the staff. I waited patiently for my appointment - it wasn't long before Bea was ready to give me a wonderful wash, blowdry and style...


Bea is one of the lovely hairdressers that work at the salon. She was extremely kind, chatty and made me feel at ease. During the washing process, Bea gave me the most SENSATIONAL head massage - very dreamy after a very intense few weeks back at university and adapting back to the uni lifestyle. I was so relaxed when I went back to sit in the seat before she began to blowdry. The friendly receptionist handed me a tablet so that I could read some online magazines for entertainment. I thought this was a lovely touch too, especially if you were getting a long treatment that lasted a few hours. The perfect blowdry and style was achieved so quickly and completely effortless - Bea transformed my hair into healthy, floaty goodness. I was super happy with the results and would definitely return for another treatment there. I loved the loose/relaxed curls for Aidan's birthday day out - it was ideal for the windy weather and casual for the day time. Having my hair done makes me really confident too so it was nice to feel good in myself as we strolled around London. If you are ever in need of a good hair-do and great customer service, head to Figaro London for sure!

This was a complimentary service from Figaro London; however, all opinions are honest and my own.

Good Hair Day

4 February 2019

I never thought the day would come where I said goodbye to my long dark locks. However, I have to say it's been one of the best decisions - no more days of being weighed down by my thick ass hair, blowdrying has been reduced by at least 3x and I'm no longer wasting 15 minutes just trying to brush out the crazy knots. There are already so many benefits of cutting my hair shorter and I didn't even know it, I'm a FREE WOMAN! 

Anyway, the second huge change I decided for my hair was the gorgeous 'Pinterest-esque' balayage. Apart from the odd shitty little box dye in my youth, I had never ever put a permanent dye or bleached my own hair. This was obviously the biggest change for me because I've always been used to my brunette hair - when I woke up the following morning I honestly didn't even recognise myself in the mirror! I've wanted my hair balayage-d since forever so when I came across Rosie's Instagram, I was in awe and popped it straight on the group chat. Within minutes, myself, Meg and Hat had booked in for a skin test and to share our desired looks with the wonderful Rosie from RozLozHair in Lincoln.


I can't remember the exact way I came across Rosie; it was either the discover page or scrolling through Lincoln's 'geo-tags' on Instagram. Honestly, I was so in awe at all of the amazing hair transformations on her feed and couldn't deal with how talented she is. After booking in for our skin test, the gals and I trekked up Steep Hill to Rosie's base - a quaint salon in the Bailgate area, just around the corner from the Cathedral. Rosie was super lovely, just as nice as she was over Insta DM's. We returned for our full day in the salon a couple weeks later - it took just under 9 hours to transform our hair from Hagrid to heaveeeeeen. The time went so quickly in my opinion - we had so much fun having a relaxin day in the salon, chatting to Rosie, reading our books and admiring each other's new hair! Rosie was extremely accommodating; she made us hot chocolate, taught us some tricks for styling our hair and informed us of some amazing products to keep our hair in good condition. I'd highly recommend Rosie to anyone who lives in Lincoln or the neighbouring cities; an overall phenomenal experience, talented woman and fab results!


You can head over to Youtube to watch the full transformation of the whole day - I've left a little preview below for you guys to have a watch. I'm so happy with the vlog and it's got an incredible response from everyone who watches me on Youtube. The support is amazing and it's given me a real confidence boost - thank you guys! I've also spoken to a lot of you on Instagram about booking with Rosie which is also fab - I love supporting those who are talented and giving them money for their hard work is so rewarding compared to a corporate business. If you want a similar result to the photos above, Rosie did a wash, cut, blowdry, colour, bond protector and style! 

Have you ever taken the plunge and dramatically changed your hair before? Where did you go to get it done?

Lots of love
