Salon of the monthVIP Backstage Hair Salon This month saw the opening of VIP Backstage Hair salon at the Ridgeway Medispa, Fairwater Stables, in Wroughton. VIP Backstage also have salons inside Next Generation gym (Swindon) and a VIP Salon inside Nuffield Health. These salons are particularly good if you enjoy the one to one experience, with just you and a stylist in the room.
One of the things that I particularly liked about VIP Backstage Hair Salon is that they offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee - if you aren't totally delighted and your friends aren’t green with envy, they will refund every penny, or re-do your treatment for FREE!
So what better way to find out about a salon than to visit it and see for myself. I arranged an appointment with salon owner Debbie to go in and have a hair treatment of her choice, a Brazillian Blow-dry.
Brazilian Blow-dry facts The Brazilian Blow-dry is sometimes known as the Permanent Blow-dry & it can last up to 14 weeks (dependant on hair type). After the treatment, less styling is needed for beautiful hair. It is a chemical-free treatment using natural sources of Keratin which repair & protect, giving smooth, silky, straight & shiny hair. Keratin is the primary protein of your hair & skin. The straightening process in the treatment seals the Keratin & moisture in, ensuring you'll have luscious looking locks for a long time to come.
L-R: Before & after a Brazilian Blow-dry My experience My hair felt and looked amazing after the Brazilian blow-dry, having previously needed to be straightened daily to stop the frizz, particularly when the weather is damp outside. I found it to be a very relaxing treatment to have done and I couldn't wait to see the results. I have since washed my hair and it still looks as good as it did when I left the salon - and all I did was blast my hair with the hairdryer. This is definitely something that I would have done again.

I had a thoroughly enjoyed my visit to VIP Backstage Hair Salon, the atmosphere was really relaxed, I was offered drinks on arrival, biscuits and magazines. Having met the whole team, I can assure you that they are friendly and very approachable. The salon was really clean, nicely decorated and had plenty of natural light. I particularly liked the choice of wallpaper, so much so I think it would look fab in my hallway! There is also plenty of free parking which is always great.
