A few weeks ago I attended a blogger event at Hotpod Yoga Derby and was told about a new hair salon opening soon in the same building
CÉLFIE the Salon launched with a friends & family evening on 15th July which I was kindly invited to (they had prosecco and cake so as if I’d decline!) and officially opened to the public on Monday 17th July
The salon is owned by the lovely Naomi & Hannah, two friends who have been hairdressers for some time and wanted to find a permanent base of their own
You can immediately tell how much effort has gone into putting the salon together, and it feels really welcoming as if you’re visiting a friends place (albeit a very stylish friend who is amazing at doing your hair!)
I’m in love with the on-trend gallery wall!
CÉLFIE offers everything from a cut and blowdry, styling your hair for a wedding or occasion, to a range of colour services including highlights & balayage. They can even give extra length and thickness to your hair with Cinderella hair extensions
In desperate need of help ahead of a night out with friends a few weeks after the launch, I booked in with Naomi for an Olaplex No. 2 treatment and a CÉLFIE Blowdry – a bouncy blowdry using hot rollers
After having my hair washed (is it just me that loves this part?!) my Olaplex No. 2 was applied and combed through, and left on for 10 minutes or so whilst I enjoyed a cuppa. The treatment was then washed off ready for blow drying
This might seem like a strange thing to say but I was amazed at how gentle Naomi was when blow drying my hair! I seem to have the type of hair that tangles just looking at a barrel brush and have had so many previous experiences of having to be yanked and untangled to get a brush out of my hair (which is clearly not good for it!) There was none of that here though – she must have a magic touch!
After being blow dried with plenty of volume, Naomi then applied the heated rollers to give my hair loose bouncy waves that would hold without dropping out. The rollers were left until cool and removed to be brushed through
Here’s the finished result! The evening I went to CÉLFIE was a typical British summer evening – lashing it down with rain till the early hours of the morning! – but my blowdry lasted all night and I was really pleased. The Olaplex treatment also left my hair feeling soft for days afterwards
I’m already booked back in with Naomi to have my hair put up for a friends wedding this week, and we’ve discussed plans for my colour so I’ll be getting patch tested at my next appointment!
CÉLFIE is perfectly placed just outside of the town centre, with free parking right out front. Also, if you go to Hotpod Yoga you’re just steps away from a cut, colour or blowdry after class (if you saw me after Hotpod you’d realise how great that is!) Also coming soon is a beauty room for all your beauty needs so watch this space!
Don’t forget to take your CÉLFIE before you go, although I’ll leave it to the prefessionals…
The salon is based at Hotpod Yoga Derby, 29 Perkins Yard, Mansfield Road, Derby, DE21 4AW and you can contact them to book your appointment by calling 07488 317405 (make sure to get patch tested in advance if you’re wanting a colour or hair extensions)
