Last Thursday, I, along with plenty of other lovely local bloggers, was invited to the VIP launch of the new RUSH salon which has recently made its home in the city of Nottingham. The now 83rd salon in the RUSH franchise has made residence on the busy high street, neighbouring the likes of Clarks, Primark and the ever so busy market square. A prime position for passers by to look through the midnight blue windowed front and into a pristine white salon, kerastase product laden shelves and gorgeous golden GHD’s gracing the wall behind the reception desk.
Our first taste of the salon was prosecco and hazelnut Lindt flavoured whilst we enjoyed a briefing of the salon and before we were taken on a tour of the place. From the outside looking in, the salon seems quite quaint and basic with a modern and simple twist. Floor to ceiling mirrors adorn the walls with styling chairs situated just in front of them, to the rear of the room was a hidden away basin area for both privacy from the public and exclusivity from other clients which enjoying that all important petrissage (that’s the real reason we go to salons right?!) Unbeknownst to us that there is actually a second floor, heading upstairs and around a slight corner, the view is jaw droppingly good. A stunning high ceiling room all in white with chocolate brown and golden titivation to boot. A sumptuous seating area with the latest glossy mags, the perfect place for a pre-consultation. Another hide-away hair wash area with even more luxurious haircare products ranging from Redken to Aveda and Loreal to Matrix. Something to suit all needs, wants and desires or simply to enjoy a tete-a-tete with your stylist before heading back into that extravagant room where the magic takes places.
On offer for the evening were an array of services from braids, put ups and GHD styling as well as the opportunity to have yourself a colour consultation and chat to the stylists.
As the event drew to a close, a mean feat for the famous Oscar selfie took place upstairs and the wonderful Claire handed out some very generous RUSH goodie bags for us each to take home containing a bottle of the Kerastase 72 Blow Dry Crème and hair mask sample, a RUSH branded appointment card holder also housing a complimentary blowdry card for us, lovehearts sweets and a RUSH branded pen.
I for one cannot wait to get myself booked in and enjoy the splendour of that second floor. What’s better is that new clients to any of the RUSH salons can benefit from 50% off* their first treatment so why not get yourself booked in to one of their 83 UK wide salons and treat yourself over the upcoming festive period.
A huge thank you to Claire for organising and inviting me along to the event. It was a huge success and I cant wait to come back!
*The 50% discount only applies to your most expensive service – NOT the full cost.
