NaBloPoMo: The hairdressers

It may sound very sad but one of my favourite things to do is to go to the hairdressers.

I go to a place called Andrew Hill which is situated in Newton Abbot. Andrew (the owner) has worked all over the world, winning competitions that include the International Gold Trophy.

The place itself is pretty swanky inside, with a big chandelier that hangs proud in the centre of the room. It has a spiral staircase, large gold mirrors and chairs that massage you whilst you have your hair washed.

I absolutely love having my hair played with so when I have my hair done I am in my element. I am very particular when it comes to choosing a hairdresser. Now that I have found one, her name is Victoria, I cannot have my hair cut by anyone else.

When I go to the salon I usually ask for half a head of highlights, a cut and blow dry. Only when I have saved up a bit of money do I ask for a full head of highlights.

My hair is naturally quite light in colour and Victoria does the highlights very finely so many people do not realise that my hair is not my natural colour. I am quite lucky in that respect, there is nothing worse than light highlights and dark roots!

I usually go into the salon not knowing how to have my hair cut and come out loving whatever Victoria has done to it.

I especially like the way she blow drys my hair and I always wish I could recreate the look myself, but no matter how much I try, it never looks as good.

I feel like one of the rich and famous whenever I am at the hairdressers. I think it is all the glitz and pampering that makes me think this. I definitely come out feeling like a new person.
