Back when the summer months were beginning, in a studio in the deepest darkest depths of West London I and some other models were helping to bring an idea to life.
An idea that would leave ladies of London in a spin of great hair, brows and beauty!
After a soggy day running around to meetings in London I took myself down to Chelsea to check out this new venture and get myself pampered at Aer blowdry bar.
As soon as you walk through the door there is an air of calm that engulfs you.
Light and airy the plants that hang from the walls add an organic feel to this little space, it feels fresh and modern but still with enough warmth to make you feel welcome.
Aer not only offers blowdries and hair styling but threading, tinting and a little bit of retail therapy.
They have hand picked a few select pieces that they feel would be perfect for their customers, everything from haircare and lip balms to scented candles.
Sitting down for a much needed cup of tea and a chat with owner and visionary behind Aer Anushka, I flicked through to look book so I could chose my look.
Each hair style is named after a city, with each city having its own unique identity and look you can either draw inspiration from this look book or copy the look completely. I decided to go for a mix of the London look and my very own Cape Town style.
Getting my hair washed with the luxury Orbie products that are also available to buy in store I was seated at one of the round tables so that Anoushka and I could continue our nattering.
Aer allows you to get ready for an event or a night out in style, whether you’re with friends or on your own the salons friendly atmosphere makes you feel as if you are surrounded by friends either way.
With a mane like mine I am usually in the stylists chair for hours on end. Yet the stylists at Aer worked their magic in no time at all. Before I knew it I had been transformed from frazzled to fabulous in a mist of heat protector and dry oils.
All I needed now was somewhere to show off this glamorous mop of hair.
