Review: Sixth Sense Salon Experience and System Professional Energy Code Launch

Sixth Sense Salon in Sutton Coldfield has long been on my "to visit" list. A few weeks ago, I was invited to the official launch of the System Professional Energy Code range at the salon. Although I couldn't make it, I was able to come in last week to find my Energy Code and sort out my unruly locks with a cut and blowdry.

Just off the high street, the salon was easy to find and I parked up nearby. Dean was on hand to welcome me when I arrived and I even got to sit and enjoy a coffee.

My appointment was with Style Director Tash who went through some questions to find my Energy Code before we got started on the cut and blowdry.

The questions were all around your derma (scalp), fibra (hair fibre quality) and forma (hair texture), looking at what you do and don't like about your hair, the products you use already and how you treat your hair with colour, heat and styling products.

From this, I found my unique Energy Code which is S1, H1, L4 and B5. This translates to the Smoothen Shampoo, Hydrate Conditioner, Reconstructive Elixir and Balance Lotion.

After the consultation with Tash, Morgan washed my hair and I even got a mini scalp massage too. This was done in a separate room which was fully equipped with a TV which was a great touch.

Onto the cut, Tash was really thorough in asking what I wanted without leaving me confused. It can be so difficult to answer the question when it's left wide open, but by leading me through each part of the style Tash gave me a fabulous cut that I was really happy with. For example, I was happy to cut off quite a bit of hair in order to get it back to being really healthy, but I had the option to remove just the ends too if I wanted to keep the length.

Finally, I asked for a bouncy blow dry. This is where I was most impressed. Using a round barrelled brush as a roller, Tash teased my hair into a big bouncy style. What's most impressive though is that the style lasted 5 whole days before I washed it. To be honest, I probably could have left it for a week, and it remarkably didn't get greasy in that time. What miracles Tash?!

Overall, I was really happy with my experience at Sixth Sense Salon. The staff were all really professional and talented, I loved the fact that there are screens everywhere to keep customers entertained, and the salon itself is really modern and clean.

Here are 5 reasons why I'd go back:

  • The longest lasting blowdry I've ever received
  • Stylists who listen to what you want and need
  • A haircut that works for me and is easy to look after 
  • Relaxed and modern salon 
  • Great parking nearby (don't laugh!)

A big thank you to both Dean's, Tash, Morgan and the team.
