Trying Wahanda For The First Time

Almost a couple of years ago I had the shortest fringe and I mean short. I guess subconsciously I was angling for the Audrey Tautou Amelie look, although I can guarantee you mine wasn’t nearly as chic. Nevertheless, I couldn’t go to a hairdresser without giving my fringe another severe chop. So at some point I decided to avoid hairdressers altogether, so I could grow out my fringe. And given how fast my hair grows, this meant my hair became quite long quite quickly.

This long to be precise …

My hair - BeforeSo when Wahanda offered me the opportunity to review their site and services, I decided that perhaps it was time to go for some kind of chop.

Before now, I had never tried a voucher service when booking a beauty treatment. I do follow Wahanda on Twitter because I like the way they interact with their followers. But I had yet to try their website.

The remit for my review was simple: just somewhere in the Kensington Area, which meant anywhere from South Kensington to North Kensington. So you can imagine, there were a lot of places and thus special offers to consider.

Trying to find somewhere to book was a bit of challenge. At first I didn’t know where to pick. Then I decided to look at the reviews and based on the positive feedback and number of stars, I finally decided on Gravity on Ladbroke Grove.

This is the after photo; so much hair ended up on the ground.

My hair - ShortThe ease of finding somewhere to have my haircut through Wahanda was emphasised by its online booking system, which was so simple to navigate. All I had to do was click on a date on the calendar; click on a time; and input my details. I then received a confirmation email for my appointment. Yep that’s right, I made my booking when it suited me and in a quick moment.

So all in all, I was very happy with my experience and of course with my haircut.
