The One where Joanne got her hair done in Zeba!

I don't know about you, but I love people playing with my hair, whether it's someone combing it or the boyfriend mindlessly messing with it while watching TV.  I just love it!  So when I was invited to Zeba on South William Street (The winner of this year's L'Oreal Professional Colour Trophy) for a complimentary wash and blow dry, I was delighted.

Over the years, I've had so many bad experiences with different hairdressers, so I was slightly wary going somewhere new, but my mind was put at ease almost immediately once I met Angie, one of the owners of Zeba.  She sat with me and spoke at length about what I wanted and how she would go about doing it, so I knew exactly what was ahead - a straight blow dry!  Perfect!

While washing my hair with Moroccan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner, Angie gave me tips on everyday hair care and I should have brought a notebook and pen!  Did you know that when you're shampooing, to concentrate on the scalp only?  No, me neither.  When you rinse the shampoo out, it will go through the rest of your hair which is enough to clean the length.  All the money I could have saved over the years not shampooing my bum-length hair!  She also said if I wanted a casual wavy look, to try washing my hair in the evening and when it's nearly dry, put it into three small buns and the next morning I'll wake up with lovely natural waves.  I'm totally going to try this but not today because my hair's too pretty!

After my hair was washed, I was introduced to John Lowry and had the chats with him.  That's one thing I noticed in Zeba, everyone from the receptionist to the stylists are all so lovely and friendly, making the full experience really enjoyable.  Angie used a small amount of Moroccan Oil on the ends of my hair before blow drying it.  She must have arms of steel after drying my hair!  Once finished, I was left with the shiniest, most silky soft hair ever!  I felt like I was in a hair ad and flicked my hair from Zeba to the bus stop.  I love it!  I'll definitely be back and would recommend to everyone to go visit this award winning salon.

Zeba have lots of excellent offers on during the week.  Monday's offer is 50% off all colour services.  On Tuesday and Wednesday, nurses can get 50% off all colour services along with €20 wash and blow dry on mid-length hair.  You can find more offers on so you have no excuse not to visit this award winning salon!

  1. Wow Joanne, you have really lovely hair! Does it take you long to wash, blow dry etc?

    1. Hi Denise. Nope it doesn't take long to wash or dry. I usually let it dry naturally which wouldn't take as long as you might think!

  2. So fab, your hair is amazing Joanne!
