I popped along to the Lisa Shepherd Salon in Birmingham a few days ago to get my hair done, I only had it done about 5-6 weeks ago so it wasn't terrible however I find the brassy tones in my hair come through alot and start making my hair very yellowy! So I went along to get a root touch up, highlights and a cut and style. 

First of all I went through what I wanted with Georgina and she was happy to go ahead with highlights and a toner to get rid of those brassy tones and a root touch up. I decided to have a little bit more cut off my length and a blowdry to finish. 

Georgina mixed together the colour for my highlights and started to apply this with foils, this is the first time i've ever had highlights so that was exciting. Once she had added in highlights to the top of my head she then went over and applied colour to my roots all over. I then had to leave it for about 30 minutes. 

After half an hour the colour was washed out and a silver shampoo was used again to keep those brassy tones away! They use lots of Redken products in the Salon, i've never used Redken before but all the products they used smelled amazing! 

Georgina then used a toner on my hair to give it shine and to make sure those brassy tones stay away all over and not only from the highlighted areas. She then took me into a treatment room to wash this out. The treatment room was really warm and cosy, it's so different from all the hussle and bussle of the salon. I sat in the chair which was a massage chair, it was lovely, so relaxing. Georgina then washed out the toner and gave me a lovely head massage as she was washing my hair. 

We then went back through to the salon and she started cutting my hair. I wanted a longish bob, she started cutting away and kept asking if the length was okay which I liked. She then styled my hair with the hairdryer as we discussed this created volume and movement which looked fab, I was so happy with my hair when I left.

I love the colour, it's just what I wanted! Those brassy tones are gone and now my hair is lighter with ash blonde highlights. It looks more natural and classy. I feel like it makes me look older which I like. 

The finish is great I'm so happy with it, my hair feels so soft and clean and healthy again. I've been trying to keep on top of my hair recently. I will returning to the Lisa Shepherd Salon again. The service is always great, everyone is so friendly and I left feeling very happy with my hair.
