I went to New ID for a makeover with the Manchester branch. I got there just after 9 having finally found a place to park in the Arndale Shopping Centre. I was told on the phone when I booked that it was important to be on-time so I was expecting to get told off but they were fine about it. Like many others I chose the Deluxe makeover photoshoot that I paid fifty pounds for, rather than the Celebrity one that is half the price but you only get dry hair styling and one of the reasons I went there was to get a really good cut. A lot of my friends rave about Burlingtons for hair so I was pretty interested to find out what they were like as I have a very good hairdresser already. I have to say that they are as good as everybody told me they were going to be. I had my hair done pretty much as soon as I got there, after the consultation that really in nothing more than booking in and filling in a bit of paperwork and telling them what you wanted done. They washed and conditioned my hair which was fine, but then the hairdressers were busy so I sat with wet hair for twenty minutes, I was not very impressed with that but the cut was fantastic. The makeup was good. The lady that did it was very informative and showed me a few tricks that I have used since. I then had to wait an hour to get my pictures done. By then my hair had flopped a bit so that had to be spruced up with a bit of hair spray but that was OK. The photo session was fun, I liked the different backgrounds on the wall, I was not expecting that, I just thought it would be an old school photo type background. The viewing session was a bit of a trial, I didn’t get long to look at each picture to decide but they were very good shots. In the end I decided on 5 images on a CD that cost four hundred and fifty pounds and I got a free print that they are going to send that I had to pay five pounds postage on. Despite the long delays I still had a good time at New ID and I am glad I went.
