I recently wrote about how making time for us was important. Well the lovely Kerry from All About A Mini Norris kindly arranged for a group of us south Wales bloggers to visit the Ken Picton salon in Cardiff Bay as part of their #BigHairDo event.

The further I got into my pregnancy, the harder it was to even wash and dry my own hair! So I jumped at the opportunity to visit the salon and get someone to wash my hair for me. And when I discovered that their chairs have massagers in them too, it’s a wonder they even got me to leave!

The staff were friendly and welcoming, not at all judgy over my home coloured hair. We were welcomed with cocktails from their licensed bar (some of us just had Pepsi) which is available for drinks whilst the salon is open, meaning you can turn any visit into a luxury pamper time.

The salon also boasts a nail bar as well as a makeup counter, so if it’s a treat you need, you can find it all in one place.

I was too busy chatting to my lovely stylist Zoe, and talking colour with Paul, to take full advantage of the nail and make up counters, but I got to see what a fab job they did on some of the other guests, so I can vouch for how great they are.

My before and after shots!

Situated in the heart of Cardiff Bay, it is truly a destination salon, you could literally spend the whole day there being papered and made to feel really special, before going for a nice meal or to see a show in the Millennium Centre.

I’m planning to go back post baby, maybe for Christmas, and treat myself to another day of pampering. Push presents are becoming a thing here right!?

Seriously though, the staff were so lovely and knowledgeable, it would be a pleasure to go back and let them work their magic on my hair.

Where do you like to go to treat yourself? Do you prefer to get your hair or nails done?
