Win a colour service of your choice and blow-dry at RUSH Brighton
Due to its popularity RUSH Brighton has relocated to a new larger site on Duke Street, marking a new chapter in its journey. The salon boasts a super-pretty pink colour scheme, completely different to anything the brand has used before. The team were keen to try something new and evolve ahead of the modern day. The pink is a positive and inviting colour, and dare we say, a little bit bridal! It reflects the fun, bright and creative colours you see on every street corner of today's Brighton. In fact, the iconic Brighton rock was just the start of the inspiration.
The salon is housed across two levels with the basement floor featuring an exposed colour bar, where you can interact with your stylist to see and feel your colour choice on a whole new level. And in the reception area, we love the soft, blush velvet armchair that welcomes you while you enjoy a fresh ground cappuccino, pink prosecco or hot mug of English tea.
