THE TREATMENT: I had heard so much about Jetset salon’s braiding bar that I couldn’t wait to try it out for myself. I spoke to my helpful stylist Bahaa beforehand and he told me to seek-out inspiration and bring along images of any looks I like. Failing that I could scroll through Jetset’s huge collection of braiding images on their iPad when I arrived. I chose a look I had seen on Lauren Conrad. When I arrived my hair was washed and blow-dried into neat waves. Then Bahaa began work on my braid. I asked for my fringe to be braided across the front of my head. With some quick twisting and plaiting I had exactly the look I wanted.
THE RESULTS: It really helped that I took an image of what I wanted to the salon as my stylist recreated it exactly. However, the helpful staff at Jetset are more than happy to suggest looks that will suit your face shape and hair type; so if you don’t know exactly what you’re after they are there to help. I loved my new hair style and it lasted the next few days – it would have stayed for longer had I not had to wash my locks! I’ll definitely go back there to get my hair done for big events.
