As well as needing to get better with make up, my hair sitch needs some work…it’s very fine, poker straight and I’m not the best at styling it. But I think I may have met the answer to my hair ‘mares this in the form of Mr Rick Roberts! I visited his gorgeous #Beverley salon (right near Mama Alice’s house, so we sneaked in a quick coffee date) for a session of pampering and hair education using some fabulous relaunched Matrix products.
Firstly, the salon looks and feels like a chic boutique hotel. Secondly, the care and attention from the stylish staff was easily as good one – prosecco and water served on a silver tray, beautiful smelling lotions and potions and a relaxing hand massage to start my appointment. Fabulous. Rick and I chatted a lot about hair care (I was made up that he liked my DIY blonde ombré) and he’s definitely busted a few of my long standing myths – products will still work when you use them all the time and drying your hair under with a brush isn’t the best way to go. The biggest one for me was that if you use a lot of products at once they won’t stop working; in fact they’ll work really well together. He proved it by mixing up some ‘cocktails’ of product and showed me how to create a good hair foundation before moving on to the styling. Rick styled my hair in glam 70s meets #AlexaChung undone waves using his stunning #Balmain straiteners (seriously, am I the ONLY ONE who didn’t know they did hair care?!?!) which I’ve been practising at home.. I’m a work in progress, but there’s definitely progress being made!
