I visited the Easton Regal salon recently for their fifth birthday celebrations for a colour, cut and blow dry and to try out their signature micro-mist treatment. The Clerkenwell salon is set over an impressive three flours and has a contemporary, modern feel. The owners Bryn and James, who started their careers at Trevor Sorbie, aim to offer a luxury 5 star personalised service.
After a consultation with the stylist, I opted for going one shade darker colour-wise and a trim to get rid of my split ends. The micro mist treatment was applied after the colour and before the cut, which involved an intensive mask being applied to my hair before sitting under the Japanese hood that uses the power of mist to penetrate hair and lock in any treatment right down to the hair follicle.
|Before & After: Colour, Cut, Blow Dry and Micro Mist Treatment|
Eco-friendly and Paraben-free Kevin Murphy’s Born Again Mask for damaged hair was applied to my hair and I was left under the device for around 10 minutes. Microscopic droplets circulate around the head and the device uses a warm mist not steam to swell the hair and open up the cuticle. Particles of mist are much smaller and lighter than those of steam and so can penetrate the cuticle of the hair to a greater depth and micro mist pushes the product deeper into the hair. The cool shot at the end of the treatment, closes the cuticle and traps the treatment inside the hair shaft which gives longer lasting results.
Overall, I was impressed with the service I received and would recommend adding the micro mist treatment on to your visit as the end result was silky smooth hair that lasted a couple of weeks and it's definitely helped my semi permanent colour last longer! Have you ever heard of the Micro Mist treatment?
