Anyone who reads my blog is probably aware that I was recently in London to celebrate my Wedding Anniversary. When I first arrived I was keen to visit a Blow Dry Bar as I’d jumped on the train straight from work and wanted to get my hair sorted before we went out.
As we were staying near Piccadilly Circus I decided to visit Blo Blow Dry Bar, which is located in the Covent Garden market.
I battled through some pretty torrential rain (typical when going for a hair appointment) and arrived with moments to spare. I was then seated and given a menu which detailed the different looks available. I have extremely long hair which is also quite thick so I was slightly worried about how someone whose never touched it before may manage it but I wasn’t disappointed.
I opted for Pillow Talk as a style, which incorporated loose waves and a more natural, messed up look. I was then taken to have my hair washed before it was rough blow dried. From here GHD Curve tongs were used to curl my hair, before they were pulled through to loosen them off and finish the look.
I was really impressed with the overall finish and had no reason to be worried about how it would look. It did continue to drop out over the course of the weekend – something that was definitely not helped by the rain – however this didn’t spoil the style as it still had some movement that made it look nice.
Overall the appointment took around 30 minutes and cost £28, which I thought was very reasonable for a central London salon. It’s a shame they weren’t a bit closer to home as they would definitely have a new regular client.
