Want to win a colour cut and blow dry at Josh Wood?
Back in March, whilst staying in London for a couple of days, I got to try out the amazing Josh Wood Atelier colour and cut experience.
Tucked away in amongst the mews of Notting Hill, stepping into this super sleek salon through a very un-hairdressery (sshh…its a word), front door almost feels like you’re being let into a secret club.
A secret club of REALLY good hair let me tell you!
So I’m really excited to bring you the chance to win your own free pass to the Really Good Hair Club – aka a colour, cut and blow dry treat at Josh Wood of your own!
Read on to find out how…
Having been steadfastly ignoring my rampant grey roots and ever multiplying frizzed out ends for way too long, I was desperate for some hair TLC and then some.
Once I was settled in to my salon chair, I got to meet both my colourist Melanie and then Sophie who was cutting my hair later on.
Melanie listened to all my Going Grey woes and we talked about one day, the possibility of becoming a sleek, silvery haired (assisted) grey a la Sarah Harris. But that day is not here yet.
We both agreed there’s still a lot of mileage to be had in varying blonde hues so Melanie said she would brighten things around my face by adding in a few extra creamy blonde pieces too.
the “secret” good hair club where your name is always on the guest list
I explained to Sophie that I had recently slipped back into Growing It Just Long Enough So I Can Enjoy The Occasional Top Knot mode.
She was able to reassure me that she only needed to carry out what I call a Just Take Off What You Need To Make It Healthy Again trim.
Disclaimer: These are both my own technical hairdresser terms. I once spent a year working in a hair salon, aged 16 on a YTS scheme, so this totally qualifies me to
make stuff up use my own terminology.
The key thing in both these cases is having a colourist and stylist who understand your needs and wants but who are also happy to guide you in their field of expertise.
I would imagine this exists in spades at Josh Wood if my experience was anything to go by.
before, during & after
Here’s the obligatory Before, During and After shots proving that yes, we are prepared to put foil on our heads and sit under spaceship-esque looking contraptions all in the name of good hair.
And post pics of ourselves doing so on the interweb so it seems. I like how I appear to be closing my eyes in the During pic. You have to look but I don’t!
My hair transformation, complete with a few more golden blonde highlights in different shades plus a healthy trim, left me feeling like the Disney version of me.
I could have hugged both Sophie and Melanie as I left the salon swinging my new locks…in fact I’m pretty sure I did!
Look at how happy my new hair is making me!
These two pics were taken the next day after a sleepless night in London and a long journey back home that left me feeling bedraggled.
My hair however was still ready to party!

And on another good hair note, Oribe haircare products are used at Josh Wood and if you’ve ever smelt their fragrance you’ll know exactly what I mean when I say… OH MY GOD!
Pronounced Or-bay as I now understand it, I came straight home and ordered the Gold Lust Repair & Restore shampoo, conditioner from the same range and the Supershine Light hair cream that was used to wash and dress my newly blonded tresses.
It may have cost me an arm and a leg to stock up but these products are superb and I wanted to carry on that good hair feeling way after the salon appointment. Try them (see my selection below) and you’ll be hooked!
Good luck with competition and let me know if you’ve tried out Oribe products before?
