Welcome back you beautiful bunch!
If you follow me on Instagram (@lanaskyecaven) then you're bound to be aware that I recently had my hair done! No, it wasn't just a bouncy blow dry or a trim, this time I went all out.
I've only ever had colour on my hair once before, mainly because my mam has always told me to embrace my natural colour, but I fancied a change.
'Evoke Creative Hair' is located on 9 Kings Walk in the very heart of Nottingham.
I knew I was in safe hands the minute I walked through the door.
Within seconds I was offered a drink of my choosing and seated in an extremely comfy chair (believe me, this is so important when you know you're going to be in the same spot for hours on end).
I had a consultation with Senior Stylist Ling before any products touched my head. This for me was so reassuring, I can't think of anything worse than a hairdresser diving in without properly understanding what their customer wants.
Not long after this, I was introduced to Director Seno and Technician Jamila. All three of these amazing people spent over 5 hours of their day working on and perfecting my hair. Hats off to them!
This was the result...
I promise you I'm not just saying it. I am well and truly obsessed with my new hair do.
One thing a lot of people don't know about 'Evoke', is that they're also home to premium Menswear label '&Blanc Fashion'.
Their ethos is simple - to promote fresh and exciting independent fashion brands, whilst providing customers with a retail experience they will never forget. They achieve this through their unique combination of fashion clothing, hair styling and coffee.
'Evoke' and '&Blanc' see bridging the gap between hair styling and fashion as their key drive and mission. After being in their space for multiple hours, I've realised that it really does work.
The staff are friendly and polite from the outset. This in itself makes a massive difference.
If you live in or are perhaps visiting Nottingham - I implore you to pop in, even if its just to have a look around their store which is located downstairs. As for the hair side of things, if you're thinking about getting anything done then I couldn't recommend 'Evoke' enough!
