The Perfect Holiday Haircut


Whether you’re off to Dubai for a luxurious short break or planning a party holiday in Ibiza, taming your locks on the beach is never easy! And in preparation for my next trip, I teamed up with Book Your Lifestyle, to make sure I got the perfect holiday haircut for my two month trip to Colombia.

Each time I return to England I like to smarten up my look, after spending a long time on the road it’s easy to end up looking like you’ve taken style tips from worzel gummidge! And vice-versa, when I’m about to leave home for an extended trip I like to funk it up a bit and have some fun, and that’s why I decided to go blue! Ha, now before you laugh I’m actually quite a scaredy cat when it comes to my hair, which is why it’s really important to have a hairdresser you can trust! Luckily Book Your Lifestyle hooked me up with a great salon in Dalston called Smooth You.




From the moment I entered the pristine, sleek looking salon I felt welcomed and with the huge array of services they offer, I knew I was in competent hands. I had a cut and colour with Jason, the head stylist, who was really accommodating when I said I’d like some blue in my hair. He talked through the options and made me feel really confident that I wouldn’t end up looking like an anime character. He also took into consideration that my cut would need to last about two months (I never get my hair chopped on the road, apart from once in the Philippines, which was actually a great experience. But more about that another time…)

Whilst I was having my hair died Jason told me all about the Brazillian Blow Dry… Originally developed in Brazil, the Smooth Brazilian Blow Dry straightens the hair without damaging or changing the texture. Following the treatment, care and styling of your hair becomes effortless with minimal amounts of blow drying and styling required for months afterwards. Your hair will have much improved resiliency and will no longer be affected by rain, humidity or sweat. Stay tuned for Part 2 where I’ll be reviewing this treatment.

So back to the blue – I was so happy when I saw the finished product. Perfectly smooth hair, with subtle blue streaks in the under layer, ash blonde highlights and a cut that will see me through ’til March. What do you think?




So if you’re looking for the perfect holiday haircut head straight to Book Your Lifestyle, to find a reputable salon/spa near you. You can book online to make it super quick and easy, and what’s even better, you can check out customer reviews. Whilst your at it, why not get a pedicure to have beach-ready feet or a quick tan to prep your skin for those warm golden rays?!
