MY EXPERIENCE AT EVOKE CREATIVE HAIR - Love, Lana Skye

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!

The Friday Girl: MY GREY HAIR TRANSFORMATION WITH EVOKE CREATIVE HAIR

I never thought I’d dye my hair an ‘unnatural’ colour again after the dramas of being a teenager and experimenting with every hair colour under the sun. Each one looking worse than the last time I might add. But, I’m a grown up now and I can go to proper salons and get proper hairdressers to sort my hair out and I’ve realised that this is 100% the best way to go. I’ll never home-dye my hair again, it’s just not worth the stress, the mess and the disappointing results.

was invited down to Evoke Creative Hair in Nottingham to have a little colour spruce up and I was really excited. I wanted a change from my ombre dip dye that I’ve been rocking for almost a year. I originally planned to still keep the ombre but go for a grey dip dye. But, we decided to go the whole way and go grey all over with a few surprise snippets of under colour. I chose purple, blue and turquoise – mermaid colours.

he salon is really really cool, there’s a men’s clothing store tucked away in the basement near the hair wash basins and it’s realy industrial and cool. I did get a little bit lonely after only looking at myself in a mirror for about 6 hours but when I was able to sit upstairs and get my hair cut after my colour was done I could really appreciate how cool the salon is. It’s also a barbers and I think it’s more popular for this than for girls’ hair but I’ll definitely be going back when my roots come through and getting a touch up and maybe even another colour. The beauty with grey hair is my hair will fade to a light blonde and then I can add whatever pastel shade I fancy on top! What’s next? I won’t lie to you, I’ll probably indulge my inner 14 year old and go for pink hair because I think I’ve always secretly wanted it!

’d massively recommend Evoke for stripping out colour and taking you from brown to grey in one sitting. They know exactly what they’re doing and my hair’s still in great condition. We used a lower strength of bleach and did two applications to make sure my hair still stayed healthy and it sure still is as healthy as it was when I walked in. It’s probably in better condition and it’s definitely looks 100% better.
