A few weeks ago I was invited to a blogger evening at Anthony John Salons near Lichfield. The hair salon is based at Heart Of The Country Shopping Village in the charming village of Swinton. The shopping village comprises of converted farm buildings with boutiques, craft shops and restaurants.
The spacious hair salon is bright and airy and the brick built building is quite deceptive as to what the inside contains. Upon entering the salon there is a modern decor with relaxing sofas. Over the reception area there is also a customer shill out area where clients can sit while their treatments are being undertaken.
Anthony John or Tony as he is known to his friends and clients open the salon because:
Every salon I have ever experienced unfortunately always lacks something: whether it’s a welcoming atmosphere and smile, fully trained and professional staff, excellent and useful products, little or no client consultation or an absence of those little touches that make a big difference.
I don’t think a client should settle for a hair cut and colour that they are not happy with, or an experience that is anything other than perfection. With Anthony John Salons I feel I have created not only a haven of luxury and relaxation, but also a space that is perfect for my staff to express their creativity and give you the style you really want.
Having experienced an evening at Tony’s salon I can openly agree that this salon ticks every box Tony set out to tick. The staff are super friendly, very knowledgeable and talented stylists. Whilst at the hair salon I had a colour consultation with Tony. This was really insightful and if I was ever to have my hair coloured, cough cough, I would certainly be taking Tony’s advice.
As well as a colour consultation, we all had the choice of a wash and blow dry with styling of our choice or a lesson in putting hair up. I have hair that is below my shoulders and have always like on special occasions to have it curled but have always struggled to get the curls to last the night. I picked up some great tips on hoe to curl using hair straighteners, I’ve always used a curling wand and more importantly what products to use to keep the curls lasting the night.
I absolutely loved my experience at Anthony John Salons and although initially it seems a long distance from where I live it actually took less time to travel here during the rush hour that it does to travel to my current hairdresser in Birmingham City Centre. I am certainly going to be paying Tony and his staff another visit in the meantime.
For the purpose of this post I was invited to Anthony John Salon as part of a bloggers event. I also received a goody bag of hair products which were recommended by staff for my particular hair and styling needs.
