Blow Dry Bar / Up Do Service at Architect Hair, Headingley

Architect Hair in Headingley (Leeds) have introduced a new blow dry bar and up-do service which is fantastic for girls like me who aren’t so great at either! They very kindly invited me to along to review the service, which was perfectly timed because I had a Christmas Party to go to with work which had a 50’s theme. I had my outfit sorted, but my hair was definitely NOT sorted.

You might remember Claire at Architect Hair hair chalked my hair earlier last year… I also see Abi at Architect regularly for fringe cuts when I’m in between appointments with Anthony Fellows (he’s my main hairdresser / hair extensions expert extraordinaire, but he’s over in Mirfield so I can’t just pop over for a fringe trim!). This time I saw Shannon at Architect Hair and boy, she is fast at up-dos!

I went in to Architect Hair with my hair down and loosely wavy/curly…

…and Shannon then got to work in giving me 50’s hair.

As Shannon was going through she explained exactly what she was doing and I really liked her attention to detail. Just take a look at that gorgeous roll at the back…

I was really pleased with the end result. Fab 50s hair and Shannon only took 30 mins to do it!

And here is the finished look… I wore a dress that I already owned from River Island, added a red scarf and red lippie to complete.
