Paul Mitchell at the Gary Hedley Salon

If there's one thing in life that instantly puts me in an awful mood, it's a bad hair day.  Unfortunately after years of colouring and applying far too much heat my hair is looking rather thin, dry and frazzled.   In an attempt to save it I try and avoid over styling and most days you'll find me with it tied up in a very messy ponytail.

So when the folks at Paul Mitchell sent me an e-mail asking me if I'd like to attend an evening of "Intelligent Styling" I was really curious to see what it was all about.

The event was held at the Gary Hedley Salon in the centre of Newcastle and showcased Paul Mitchell's new range of "Neuro" products.  Neuro consists of six new hair styling tools designed to create the perfect blowdry, curl, ringlet or wave.  The interesting part for me (and my frazzled hair) is that each tool uses a microchip to deliver a safe and even heat to your hair, once the tool reaches the required temperature the chip regulates it 50 times per second to protect you against unnecessary extra heat.

I made my way to the event straight after work and met up with some other bloggers in the busy salon.  Everywhere you turned there was a stylist, a model, a blogger or, if you were really lucky, a topless waiter offering you some food and fizz. 

The evening got underway quickly with each of us being whisked away by one of the Salon Stylists so that we could experience the new products for ourselves. 

The Neuro Unclipped was used for my style along with the delicious smelling Express Dry Wash to add some volume and the Express Stay Strong to keep it all in place.   

My hair was soon transformed to a head full of really pretty curls which I absolutely adored.   

I was really happy to be one of the first finished as it meant I got to stroll round the Salon and see what the other bloggers were up to.  

Kloe's long straight dark hair was soon transformed into natural curls that looked really effortlessly beautiful.

 I particularly loved how the tools styled Rachel's short hair and Laura's "Festival" inspired do was the real hit of the night with everyone lining up to take a photo of the pretty style.

If you want to see more of Laura's gorgeous new style head over to her blog here  to read about her experience.

I was very impressed with the products and it left me with a feeling of hope that maybe even me, with my dry frizzy hair and non existent hair styling skills might be able to create something pretty special thanks to Paul Mitchell.

I had a really great evening and met some lovely new blogging ladies.  Thanks to the whole team at Paul  Mitchell and Gary Hedley for the great evening and lovely goodie bag.
