Marios {salon love}

Monday, 20 August 2012

I have finally decided that I am ready to make a change to my hair. I think this decision came about after spending time with my oldest friend who assured me I would love it, and then, of course, going to visit Marios salon for the first time after hearing rave reviews.

I showed him my options and rattled off my list of about 30 things that I did NOT want and it just felt right that he was the person to do this for me. I had booked a pedicure and a cut and blow-dry on Friday and I was blown away with the service and the comfort of the salon. The staff are all so friendly, yet so calm. For the first time in a while I felt like I had to close my eyes and relax – so often hair salons are complete and utter chaos! The head massage was unreal and Marios did a curl for me which looked so pretty (and held nicely).


I think the reason I get so nervous when it comes to this sort of thing is that I have seen way too many disasters. Yes, you can just chop it off or dye it again, but it never looks the same. Another problem is that I want to go for the ombré look that has been somewhat overdone – but in my opinion the good one’s look simply amazing and no comment on the home jobs. Ladies, please don’t attempt this at home.

I have made my appointment for mid-September, as Marios is a popular man, and can’t wait to share it with you. Below is the image of what I like (Lily Aldridge), perfectly subtle and natural.
