Rush Hair, an award-winning hairdressing group is turning heads in Manchester with the opening of its new Northern flagship salon on Deansgate Manchester. Set right in the heart of Manchester city centre, Rush Hair opened the doors to its brand new salon earlier this month on Deansgate and is set to be a showpiece for the group thanks to its modern interior and 14 strong team of some of the best hairdressers from across the country.
With over 20 years experience in the industry, Rush Hair is one of the fastest growing hairdressing brands and currently boasts 80 salons across the UK. The styling team at Rush Hair will be providing the city’s fashion conscious with exceptional cut and colour services, expert advice on the latest hair and beauty trends and bespoke hairstyles to suit every customer’s preferences and hair type needs.
I was kindly invited down to the Deansgate Manchester salon during their opening weekend to take a look around and enjoy a cut and style courtesy of the lovely stylists.
I will say I am very choosy over who gets to style my hair; as it is naturally very thick and voluminous, there are only a select few hairdressers who I have known and trusted over the years to cut & style my hair and who I know can cope with my hair’s demanding needs. My hair is my pride & joy and visiting a brand new salon was like taking a leap of faith, but I was reassured by the reviews of Rush Hair and the high standard of stylists working for the group.
Early on Sunday morning I headed over to the Deansgate salon and was greeted by my stylist for the day, Ashley. Before we began, Ashley asked about my hair history and the type of cut and style I was after – it has taken me years to grow my hair to a reasonable length, so I just wanted a couple of inches off the end and my layers neatened up so my hair looked thicker and healthier. When I usually have my hair cut I get it straightened, but Ashley suggested finishing my hair with a curly blow dry for a change; which I was really excited about as I have never had a professional blow dry!
After a relaxing wash with some moisturising Kerastase hair products to nourish my hair, Ashley prepped my hair with some Moroccan Oil and Redken Blowdry Lotion to protect it from heat, reduce drying time and boost shine. After taking a couple of inches off the ends and shaping my layers and fringe, Ashley began working her magic by blow drying my hair in sections with round brushes and leaving them in my hair to allow the curls to cool down and set in place.
It was quite amusing to see my hair full of brushes as we were waiting for the curls to set and I was dying to see the results; I have coveted the perfectly coiffed styles of Kate Middleton and Cheryl Cole for ages but I have never been able to recreate the style at home. One by one, Ashley removed the brushes from my hair and dressed my curls; teasing and twirling them into place before finishing my look with some hairspray.
Within the hour, my new hairstyle was complete and I was in awe with the results; Ashley had been able to transform my hair from straight and boring to voluminous and bouncy. I loved how shiny and smooth my hair looked, it even felt much softer than usual. My restyle had me leaving the salon feeling so glamorous and confident with my curls bouncing along as I walked; I couldn’t wait to show off my new ‘do!
I felt really comfortable in Ashley’s hands and was fascinated watching her transform my plain Jane hair into bouncy glamorous curls. All the staff I came into contact with at Rush Hair Manchester were very friendly and attentive, I couldn’t fault the service I received from the moment I walked through the door.
