Rush hair salons keep popping up all over the shop and when I was invited to their launch party, I was so upset that I couldn’t make it. Their lovely PR company however, asked me if I would like to go for a cut and finish to test out the salon and with it being party season, I jumped at the chance.
I went to the Salon the weekend before Christmas, and town was genuinely manic. I don’t really like busy places so when I realised the salon was right off the square in the middle of Nottingham, my heart sank. I was so worried that it would be super busy as it is in such a central location but I needn’t have worried. I was welcomed in by the lovely Craig who ended up being my stylist and he kindly took my coat and scarf. We then went upstairs and I was amazed – it is a really big, spacious and light area and it wasn’t cramped, crowded or stressful. I was offered a drink (even wine is on the menu…!) and my water came served with some popcorn which I think is such a lovely little touch.
We sat down to discuss my hair wishes (just a little trim) and my hair concerns (my limp and lacluste fringe!) and Craig actually sat in the seat next to me which was nice as I’ve never had that in any other salon! My hair was then washed my hair using some glorious products (they smelt amazing!) and I am very pleased to tell you that I got exactly what I asked for – no scissor happy staff at Rush!
Craig blow dried my hair and gave me some pointers on how best to dry my fringe to ensure the best volume possible and I was so happy with result. I will definitely be back; I’m planning to book in for a blow dry next week when I’m in Nottingham again. I’ve never had one before and feel like Rush is the perfect place to be pampered!
I didn’t manage to get a photo of my hair afterwards as I fell over at the ice-skating (Chris pulled me down!!) and it got a bit wet but I can’t thank Rush enough for such a wonderful experience.

I also featured my trip in my weekly vlog, so skip to around 12mins for a mosey around the salon itself!
Whilst the treatment I received was complimentary, all opinions are my own and I was under no obligation to write this post*
