Review: Rachel gets a summer hair update at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing Letterkenny

Has anyone else noticed how much the heatwave dried out hair? The recent hot weather put the idea of lightened beachy waves into my mind, but I definitely needed some hydration too.

That’s why I booked a Super Deluxe treatment at Patrick Gildea Hairdressing along with my colour this month. This conditioning treatment reconstructs damaged hair and leaves it feeling softer and healthier. Plus, with a G Massage – it’s the perfect way to add extra relaxation to the salon experience. 

Siobhan and Megan brightened my colour with highlights and toner. The Super Deluxe treatment is a special feature of Patrick Gildea’s as it is a System Professional salon and stockist. But more than that, the team is celebrating being selected as a Flagship salon of System Professional this month. It is one of the top 4 salons globally to represent the haircare brand’s expertise in care. That product knowledge means that every guest gets personalised care for their hair needs. As usual, mine was repair and hydration, and luxe oil always does the trick!

Here are the before and after pictures:

Siobhan, Megan and Laura were all amazing and took great attention to detail throughout the visit. We finished with a cut and beach wave style – which was something different for me, and perfect for a summer look!

The team always takes time to talk about ongoing haircare and ensure you leave with guidance on maintaining colour and good hair nutrition.

Thanks to everyone for the refreshed and rehydrated summer hair!
