A couple of weeks ago I attended the Shine blogger event. If you haven’t heard of Shine, it’s a great hair and beauty salon found in Brighton’s North Laines on Gloucester Rd and myself along with some other amazing bloggers were invited along for the launch of their Shine Shampoo Bar. I unfortunately couldn’t attend the event for very long as my lovely fiancé surprised me tickets to see Breakfast at Tiffany’s at the Royal Theatre Brighton on the same night but I was able to stick around for 45mins.
After being greeted by Lisa and the lovely staff at Shine when I arrived with the wonderful Holly from closingwinter.co.uk (we went for amazing hot chocolates before the event), I was treated to a lovely hand massage by Tracie who is one of the beauty therapist. It was sooo lovely and relaxing, especially after a day at work. Tracie was really lovely and she informed me about all the beauty treatments which Shine have to offer, which I might need to find out a little more soon.
Steve, the stylist at Shine then demonstrated some key hair looks for autumn/winter. I was only able to stay for the first look but Steve showed us how to do a gorgeous knot braid. It looked really fab and it didn’t take very long at all. I’ve been having a practice on my own hair, and once I get the knack of it and can do it as beautifully as Steve did, I will share a photo.
When I had to leave, I was given a gorgeous goody bag which contained the newly released Shine Shampoo Bar. This bar was created by Jonathan who is the owner of the Shine salon and has after 30 years experience in hair. I’ve not used a shampoo bar before, so I’m really excited to try this out. It smells great with Ginger and Lemon scents and also comes in the biodegradable packaging, which is really refreshing to see. As the packaging is so easy to travel with, I’m saving to use this bar on my next weekend away. Along with the new Shine Shampoo bar, there were also some Aveda goodies – Aveda Botanical Kinetics skin toner and some more hair treats with Aveda Invati products.
Thank you for the invite Lisa (@lisaven)
