I love going for brunch and I love going for a blow dry. Whilst we are on the B theme, I also love Brunsfield. It’s our old neck of the woods and a lovely part of Edinburgh. Recently I was invited to check out Hair by JFK and enjoy a little pampering. I didn’t really have the time, but I like to practise what I preach – we all need a bit of self-care.
Hair by JFK is a proper funky salon and also opposite the hidden gem of brunch spots that is The Treehouse Cafe, which has recently had a revamp. What can I say? Fantastic service, fabulous coffee and the pancake stack. Come to Mama! I have put some more brunch tips here, including other top places in Brunsfield such as Honeycomb & Co and Montpeliers.
Hair by JFK has a really funky, party feel to the salon and what I loved was hearing the words:
‘Would you like some wine? we always have wine’.
As a matter of fact, I did feel like a glass of wine as I was getting ready to head out for the night to the Opulence launch party. It would be rude not to. I love the idea of going back for a blow dry and wine with friends. Who doesn’t love a pamper and a laugh, in a nice, relaxed atmosphere? A good hair day is always a good day, it’s amazing what it can do for our confidence and of course dance moves.
I had a really lovely afternoon and was feeling fab for my night out. I love getting some volume put into my hair and of course a massage when I am getting it washed is such a treat. Hubs, who shaves his head, still doesn’t really understand the blow dry thing. I mean, why bother when you can do it at home? I on the other hand believe a good blow dry and style to be a necessity before a night out. It’s part of the process and a favourite form of self-care.
Thanks to the team at Hair by JFK. If you are struggling with gift ideas for birthdays and Christmas my tip is to get someone a voucher here for a style, blow dry (and wine ha). If anyone is looking for ideas for me then this one won’t go wrong.
