This morning, I trotted along to the Corintha Hotel based in Whitehall Place. I was invited to take a tour of the new Daniel Galvin Salon and also have a treatment of my choice. My first impression of this stunning hotel was WOW. Corinthia opened its doors in July this year and it was clear to see. Everything was sparkling clean, modern, grand and inviting.
The most amazing part of the salon was the VIP Make-Over room which was designed by make up artist Lois Burwell. Using her expertise, the design elements included a sleek barbers chair surrounded by TVs, an iPad which controlled the technology and specific make-up lighting for that all important finishing touch. The room has been been used by a selection of celebrities and brides to be.
Daniel Galvin is infamous for being the hair colour guru so I opted for a vegetable colour/tint. We decided to just give my hair an overall tint as I didn't want to change my hair colour. Once my hair was washed, an overall tint was smoothed over my hair and left on for around 15minutes. After a quick rinse it was time for my blow dry in which just asked for a straight with volume finish.
Once my hair was finished, it was VERY glossy, soft and manageable. A far cry from the bed of hair I arrived with! My stylist also gave me a side parting which I really liked, permanent parting? Maybe. Finally we were sent off with a goody bag full of Daniel Galvin Products.
It was such a great day and I can't wait to re-visit. The hotel also houses a ESPA spa, which is thoughtfully situated right next door to the salon. A perfect place for a days pampering.
