Colour and Cut Revolution

with Icon Italian Connection, Mumbles

In the April issue, Icon Italian Connection in Mumbles, ran a competition for one lucky reader to WIN a cut and colour revolution plus make-up make-over. The winner, who was drawn at random was BAY contributor Amanda Skull who was delighted to be given the opportunity to update her style.Icon pic 1

Forty two year-old Amanda Skull of Penllergaer correctly answered that the Sens.Us range of colours used by Icon are free of the chemicals PPD and ammonia. Here’s her story of how she enjoyed a refreshingly different approach to ‘going to the hairdresser.’

“I was impressed by the team’s knowledge of colour, the eco-friendly  products they planned to use, as well as the warm welcome they gave me,” she says. “I instantly felt relaxed and knew I was in good hands as Lisa took the time to talk to me about my lifestyle. I explained that I am a two minutes under the hairdryer type of person, with my styling regime not helped by the fact that I sometimes cycle to work and wear a helmet.”

Explains Lisa: “Amanda has lovely thick hair but adding long layers would create texture and make it easier to manage.

The colour also needed a lift so we suggested one that would complement her skin tone yet witha few highlights to add interest without being radically different from what she was used to.”

 “I was delighted with the finished look and pleasantly surprised when my fiance noticed and liked my new look too,” adds Amanda. “I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Icon and I’m finding that a shorter length with more layers is much easier to manage, bouncing back into shape even after I’ve removed my helmet.

 “I will definitely recommend Icon to my friends, particularly those who share my passion for nature and wildlife and will, like me, be relieved to find a salon in Swansea that takes caring for the environment just as seriously as asking where I’m off on holiday.” Bay Template
