Ruma Salon | Southampton

I don't visit the salon very often, I rarely go out to get my hair cut as I get it cut from home, and I've always dyed my own hair. On Saturday I popped down to the new Ruma Salon in Burseldon, Southampton for an afternoon pamper. I do love a good pamper and it definitely came at the right time, I have been so stressed lately ahh!

On arrival to the salon, I was greeted with a choice of drinks and cupcakes, I was sold already! After having a tour of the salon, I was actually shocked at how new and luxurious everything was. Whenever I visit salons I always feel like they've kind of let the place go, the interior is never the way I would have it but Ruma have really perfected it. A mix of dark wood and copper details fill the salon, I couldn't have picked it better myself. Every aspect of the salon screamed relaxation at me. 
There was a range of treatment areas, including two special treatment rooms for the more private treatments. Massaging chairs seemed to be the main entertainment for the afternoon, I have to agree that they are weird to start off with but they are so incredibly relaxing, I can 100% recommend them.

Ruma offer a range of services, from hair cuts and styling to shellac nails, from massages to waxing. The salon stock a range of products including Murad, Redken and Pureology, which I haven't tried myself, but I always hear people raving about various products from these brands. 

I was lucky enough to have my nails done by Chloe, I chose to have a gorgeous glittery red shellac manicure*. It was lovely to have someone else do my nails for the first time in forever, I really hate painting my own nails so this was definitely a treat. My nails look gorgeous, Chloe really did them so well and I can't wait to see how long it lasts. I also had my hair played with by Sophie, is it just me that thinks having your hair done is so relaxing? I love people playing with my hair, and when they're making it look nice as well I really can't complain. Sophie went for a waterfall braid round the back of my hair, and then curled the rest over to one side. I actually have no idea how to describe it so I've included a photo, but it just looked so pretty, I was so impressed with her talent! Can I employ someone to do my hair everyday?!

I had a great time checking out the new Ruma salon, its a little paradise to be honest with you! I can't wait to pop down again soon to try out some more of the treatments. All the staff are so lovely and welcoming, I felt so relaxed and comfortable all afternoon. Ruma have now officially launched so if you're in the area, pop down and try out some of their treatments, they are so worth it. 

*Complimentary treatment, but all views are 100% my own opinion.
