About Burlingtons & New ID Bristol
I got roped into having a makeover with a very good friend of mine who had been given a voucher as a gift. She was really excited about going but has little to no self confidence and didn’t want to go on her own.I have known June for almost 35 years and I know she has never felt comfortable in front of a camera and does her best to make sure she stays out of every picture that has ever been taken so I was very surprised that she was up for this kind of experience and not a bit surprised that she was utterly determined not to go alone, and who got roped in? I didI don’t really mind being in front of a camera but I don’t go in for a lot of fancy make up or hair styles, I have virtually spent my life with my hair in a French plat and really have never much considered doing anything else with it!We had a look at a lot of magazines before we went to try too work out what kind of style we should go for. June wanted to have her hair coloured to mask a bit of grey and said she wanted a far more sexy look, I was pretty shocked at that too!We got to the salon and neither one of us could stop giggling, it must have been nerves but the ladies there were really good and made us feel a lot calmer, as did the champagne for the first two glasses but I think by the time we had our pictures done we both felt a little bit squiffy! June had a wonderful colour put on her hair that covered her gray completely and took years off her. I got some long layers put in my hair so I can now wear it down as well as put it in my usual plat and it felt quite glamorous and a lot younger with it down for a change.We were both pretty nervous going into the photo studio but we needn’t have worried the photographer chappy was really sweet and made us both feel like models and as if it was the kind of thing that we did every day.I didn’t really expect much from the pictures but was really surprised when if saw them, I looked like a different woman and found it hard to believe that it was me, I was really impressed and couldn’t stop looking at them. June was almost in tears over hers she looked so beautiful, it was such a treat.We both spent way more than we had planned on spending but we are both thrilled to bits with the pictures.
