At The Handbook we love telling you about the best new places to eat with the hottest new menus but today we have a slightly different menu to tempt you with, the Charles Worthington’s new Express Menu especially designed for ‘time poor’ City workers.
Expect the same treatments but with a chunk of time knocked off by recruiting an extra pair of hands to help. Treatments like a blow dry can be completed in 15 minutes, a colour regrowth and blow dry in an hour, and a half head of highlights and blow dry in 75 minutes. My flavour of the moment is blonde hair but like most people I wasn’t blessed with honey coloured hair (no disrespect to my chocolate haired divas) so I had my eye on the full highlights with cut and finish – go big or go home.
They promise a finished time of 1 hour and 45 minutes which seemed too good to be true and it turned out it was as it took nearer 2 and a half hours, still better than the typical time of 3 hours and up though. I didn’t mind sticking around the salon as the staff was lovely and I personally think more time should be spent devoted to pampering me anyway. I was totally in love with the finished look and kept bumping into people on my way home trying to steal glances of my new locks in every reflective surface I could, there’s no doubting the skill of the technicians that work at Charles Worthington.
Charles Worthington Broadgate, where the Express Menu is available, is bang in the middle of the City mere moments from Liverpool Street station, making it as convenient as possible for busy workers to pop in for a little lunchtime hair indulgence – just be generous with your time when it comes to booking colour treatments though.
