When an e-mail landed in my inbox inviting me to a luxurious bubbles, bloggers and blow dry event in partnership with Corioliss, at Forde Hair on North street in Brighton, I couldn’t resist! I arrived at the event a little flustered as I had just arrived after a day at uni (again, ignore how flustered I look in all the photos!!) and a presentation. However I was greeted at the door by the gorgeous team and welcomed with a glass of bubbles, just what I needed! We were then shown the salon, presented with the most insane goody bag ever (more on that later) and then whisked into a seat for some hair fun.
I love the layout of the salon, from the gold and purple exterior, to the lavish interior with pink leopard print walls, fun prints, extravagant furnishings and gorgeous baroque style mirrors! We were all seated at a station, assigned a lovely stylist and got our hair done however we wanted. I opted for soft beachy curls, achieved with the funky C3 Corioliss Gold Leopard Straightening Iron and I loved them! After we got our hair done we enjoyed some nibbles, more drinks, and had a fab chance to talk to the whole team and get to know them a little better, which was a really lovely intimate setting. It was fab to have a little chat with Gary Forde as he is the UK ambassador for Corioliss and he really has a passion for what he does, which is definitely represented in the salon and all the staff. There were also two lovely chaps, Arnaud and Vincent, from Corioliss on hand throughout the evening to talk us through the products, which were were kindly gifted in the goody bag, so keep an eye out for a little Corioliss post soon. As always it was lovely to catch up with some of my favourite blogging ladies and to meet a few new faces too.
At the end of the evening there was a super lavish raffle and I won a complimentary colour with their colour specialist, Rob, a real treat which I cannot wait to get booked in for. However I think I am going to save it for a little later in the year before my holiday to Croatia in June and go for a fun summer colour!
I had a really, really lovely evening at Forde Hair and it was definitely one of the loveliest events I have been to, I felt like such a pampered princess! So a massive thanks to the Forde Hair team for inviting me down and thanks to Corioliss for the super generous goody bag!
Have you visited Forde Hair in Brighton, or tried anything from Corioliss?
