I actually can’t believe this is the second last week of The Best of Beauty bog Challenge. Although I have missed one or two, I have really enjoyed taking part. This weeks topic is the best of Beauty Treatments and as you know I am a big fan of getting pampered.
Regular readers of the blog will know how I have a penchant for treating my self to treatments in the beauticians. Earlier in the week I blogged about the most gorgeous facial in Iconic Beauty, Rathgar and previously in one of the other weeks of the challenge, I blogged about my fortnightly visit to my local beauticians, Top To Toe, to get my nails done my the lovely Lauren. So what else is there to blog about treatment wise? Well, now that my face and nails are taken care of, it is time to move on to hair.
While I do have a decent head of hair, I really have to work at it. Investing in a good shampoo and conditioner is a must and as you already know, I am a big fan of Evolution Keratin. For me, the most important part of getting your hair in good condition is a good hairdressers and god knows once you find him or her, hang onto them.

Over the years I have had shockers with hairdressers. I have had one girl turn my hair black with orange, yes orange, roots. Another dyed my hair pink when I asked for brown with a hint of red and I even had pink highlights, although that one was on purpose. I was in college, it was a thing back then. Don’t judge. When you dye your hair it can cost serious money, so you want to get it right.
Here’s the thing. While I love to get my hair done every 2-3 months, like most people I don’t have the €100+ to do so. I mean who does? We all know getting your hair done can cause the bank manager to break out in a cold sweat. Well I have a way that you can keep your tresses looking fab and your wallet looking healthy.
I need to get my hair done every 2-3 months. I always book into the classes in House of colour liffey street. Classes is where trainee hairdressers do your hair at a seriously reduced cost. Don’t be scared by the world trainee, I have never walked out of there with nothing less than amazing hair. The fact that they are training means that they listen to exactly what you want, not their own version of what you want. There is a teacher that watches every single move they make. They literally can’t do a thing without it being double checked. They want to get everything perfect so they take their time and always do a fabulous job
I book to get my hair coloured about 2 weeks in advance and for an all over colour with a blow-dry it costs €25. Compared to the €100+ I used to pay this is seriously amazing. House of colour run classes on Monday – Wednesday and have two sittings 10am and 2pm.Although there are a lot of hairdressers that do them in the evening.
It does take a little longer than if you were going to a fully qualified hairdresser, but for that price, just bring a good book and relax.
There are many different hairdressing chain that do classes like this, but I have found Hessions and House of colour in Dublin to be the best that I have tried. Classes are such a great way for treating your hair without breaking the bank.
