Ever since I visited Regis at the Trafford Centre I’ve been desperately in need of a decent hair cut. Having dry and frizzy hair means colouring it can kill the ends leaving them hard to manage. I popped into Supercuts in the Arndale in the hope that they could work some wonders and put some bounce back into my distressed locks.
This is how my hair looked before I had it cut. It was a bit longer than normal but I do like that. It is a shame my hair doesn’t like to be this length without being dry and frizzy!
The salon in the Arndale Centre has moved… it used to be next to Boots on the first floor but is now in the newer area of the Arndale opposite Dorothy Perkins. The change has been a good one; it is now a larger space and much more light and airy. I was greeted by Luke and ‘checked in’. One of the many positives about the Supercuts salons is that you don’t make an appointment, in fact, they don’t accept appointments at all. You turn up, check in at the counter, and wait for a stylist to become available. In a busy city such as Manchester this is a great way for busy people to just pop in when they get the time. It is also great for those times when you have completely forgotten to book in for a hair appointment and get to the point where you just can’t bear the look of your hair anymore. Personally, this doesn’t really work for me. I am super organised and once I find a good hairdresser I do like to stick with them. It feels like you couldn’t really do this at Supercuts but for that generic zithromax quick fix, it is perfect.
Luke washed my hair with smoothing products and gave it a smoothing treatment. He explained that, because my hair is thin and fly-away, that this would help combat that and make it easier to style. I love that you are kept informed of the price throughout your appointment with Supercuts. If I had a £1 for every time I’ve said yes to something in a hairdressers thinking it would be included in the price of my appointment I would be fairly rich! There are no nasty surprises and, if you are on a tight budget, this is the perfect way of deciding whether you want the additional extras without being embarrassed to say no.
Luke provided me some options and suggested he take around an inch off my hair but not too much off my layers so they didn’t bounce up too much with my hair being curly. He suggested that this would also get rid of any dry and split ends leaving my hair in much better condition so I went with exactly what he suggested.
The result is a slightly shorter cut than I normally like but my hair feels so healthy and has a wonderful bounce that I have missed over the last few months. I was there a fairly short amount of time which is credit to Luke and his amazing skills with his scissors! He can usually be found at the Stretford salon and I would highly recommend you going to visit him if you are in need of a quick cut in your lunch hour. The perfect quick fix!

I didn’t pay for this hair appointment but this is an honest review of my experience.
