Last Saturday I was lucky enough to have a complimentary hair cut and blow dry at Super Cuts in the Crossgates Shopping Centre, Leeds. Their premise is simple, you show up without an appointment and have your hair done.
With colour you need to do a skin test a couple of days before to ensure you’re not allergic but with cuts and blow dries, you just turn up and leave with super glam, chic hairstyles.
Most shops are in shopping centers across the UK with 180 stores nationwide so if there is a queue you can keep busy before your appointment browsing the shops but waiting times are kept to a minimum. Hair cuts start at £13.95 (terms and conditions apply) and their fitting tagline is ‘Good Looks Cost Less’.
A simply styled shop, I waited only five minutes to be seen and my friendly stylist Laura had a detailed conversation about how I would like my hair before starting. Wanting to keep my hair long, I was sure I’d only like a trim but more layers throughout if she agreed.
Assessing my hair, she advised how short the layers should be and suggested taking some weight off my hair too. With blow dries, I tend to always have big brushes put in leaving long Hollywood style waves so this time we decided a sleek, straight style would make a nice change once my hair was cut.
Using Supercut’s own branded Regis hair products: Designline Vivid Satin Shampoo and Conditioner, Laura set to shampooing and conditioning my hair, therapeutically massaging my mane clean. Combing through Enchanted Midnight Luxury weightless oil which helps keep hair supple and retains colour, she cut my hair making it feel lighter and more modern than before.
The blow dry was thorough and she finished it off with GHD’s and with some Designline Silk Drops repair and shine serum so it glistened. I can honestly say I felt like a new girl when she’d finished. Not just ecstatic with the cut and style but super relaxed and pampered from the whole, blissful experience.
There was nothing rushed about the service and the stylist really knew her hair. A complete pro who was lovely to boot. I left feeling a million dollars. Quite honestly, the best haircut and blow dry I’ve ever had. Thank you Supercuts.
