Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow*

I am notoriously bad for remembering to get my hair cut. There. I said it. I have, in case you might not have noticed, quite long hair, and that means, to a greater or lesser extent, I can get away with it. However, when contacted by the lovely people at Wahanda.com and asked if I'd like to partake in a voucher to spend, and with a view that I may be a bit closer to or certainly spending a bit more time in London in the not too distant, I was only too happy to accept and see what was on offer.

So, for those of you who may be unfamiliar with Wahada, it's an online one-stop-shop for health, beauty and wellness. You can find everything from Hairdressers in London to Hair Removal in Lanarkshire. Impressive no?  The site features deals, discounts and the option to buy vouchers both for yourself or for others, which is great if you're looking for a gift for a friend, relative or just for a cheeky treat.

When searching, as I did through the London Hair offers and deals, Wahanda have pretty much nailed it. Options to set price minimums and maximums, specify the type of treatment you're looking for and the date for which you want your offer to be available are all MAJOR plus points in my book, who wants to sift through hundreds of irrelevant offers, however nice they may be?! My only slight niggle, was that for a city the size of London it took me a while to work through options that were give or take in the right area of London, as not all entries on the site have the helpful little map at the right hand side.

So aside easy search options, what else does Wahanda have going for it? Well they have some pretty damned good deals on their website. I pay a ludicrously small amount to have my hair cut at the moment, and am fully expecting to have to pay more as I head further South. That doesn't mean I won't do my best to get myself a good deal, and that's what Wahanda are offering. Many of the salon vouchers are 30%, 40% and even 50% off their usual tariffs for colours, cuts, blow drying and styling, and when some of the full price treatments are almost 7 times what I currently pay, I'll take a 40% discount with both hands and no, I will not let it go.

So aside some great deals, an efficient search function and being able to do it all from the comfort of your own home, what else does Wahanda have going for it? Why else would you be tempted? Well.... this...



See the clean and simple website- one that doesn't distract with moving bits or annoying pop ups? See the star ratings based on customer reviews? See the helpful map and contact details for the salon? The description of the salon, further recommendations close by, and recommendations of what's good? All these are reasons I'd use Wahanda again, for Hairdressers, for beauty treatments, for gifts. You can't really argue with efficient, good value for money and choice, can you!

And as for me, you'll have to wait and see what I booked!

I really like the idea of being able to be so specific when looking - it's so annoying when you find a great deal only to see you have to visit at 2pm on a Monday or something! This is such a good idea!

This sounds like a great way to get a good deal, save a bit of money but find somewhere decent all at the same time!

Good luck! I'm the same way about getting my hair cut. I've gone almost a year without even getting a trim before. I just got my hair cut a few weekends ago and went drastic and did an entire 8 inches.

It's my pet peeve, when I can't filter and search properly, and there are several online shops that I would probably buy from but for difficulties actually finding what I want!

Chloe said...

I'm pretty pleased, I'm really glad I had an opportunity to have a play with it!

Chloe said...

I'm getting better with remember to get it cut, and like you have gone to the 1 year mark before, particularly when living abroad. The thought of European Hairdressing terrifies me! How are you enjoying the drastic change?!

Maria Fallon said...

Good luck, I have just had mine cut and although it doesn't look like much off it feels hugely different to me!

I know exactly what you mean. I pretty much always just have my hair trimmed, but never the less, it always feels seriously short, even though it's only had a couple of cm's off.
