Ruma Salon Opening

This weekend, I was lucky enough to be invited to a Bloggers’ Preview afternoon at the new Ruma Salon, in Bursledon, Southampton. Now I love the opportunity for a bit of a pamper, and I was super excited to see what this new opening would have in store.

The lovely staff greeted us with drinks and cupcakes - the way to a blogger's heart, as we all know - before we were shown around the new salon.

The new salon has a really luxurious feel, with a combination of neutral tones and textures, including dark wood and copper. It feels so luxurious, you wouldn't think it's just down the road from Tesco.

The treatment areas were so relaxing, and I even got the opportunity to try out the vibrating chair, in both the massage room and the basin area. It was bizarre at first, but totally relaxing so I can see why they've been included.

Ruma is offering a range of treatments and services, from Shellac nails, to massages, Murad speciality facials and hair cuts and colours. The salon also stocks a variety of Redken and Pureology, which sound really amazing. I've not tried any myself, but I've heard great things from fellow bloggers, and the staff were raving about it. I'd definitely be up for trying some.

I was also lucky enough to have my hair played with and done in an up-do by the really talented Sophie. She was super creative, so I let her have free reign over my hair and I was super impressed. She created this gorgeous messy side bun with a ladder braid - it looked amazing, I didn't want to take it down come the end of the day. I'm awful at doing my own hair, so it was lovely to have something other than a ponytail. If only Sophie could do my hair every day. I'll definitely be popping back to see Sophie if I have an event that requires some fancy hair.

I had a fabulous time checking out the new Ruma Salon. Everyone was so lovely, and made us all feel so comfortable and welcome. The atmosphere was so relaxing, it really was a little haven. I can't wait to go back. Want to have a look for yourself? Ruma's official opening is this weekend, both Friday and Saturday, when you can just drop in and have a look for yourself.
Until next time,
