Recently I visited Blo Blow Dry Bar in Covent Garden which is situated in the marketplace piazza (just under the arches). I just so happen to be on my way to a hen do that evening and what better way to get ready and get my hair done at Blo Blow Dry Bar. Did you know that Gwyneth Paltrow launched this brand in the US and has become the largest blow dry bar franchise in the world. There’s no cuts, no color, just wash, blow and go. I visited the blow dry bar with two of my blogger girlies and each of us went for a different blow dry experience. We were taken through the hair menu as this was a whole new experience for me and prices start from £28. They also offer bridal hair styling from £110 so that’s good to know because my sister is getting married next year!
The ladies at the salon are very experienced and offers 7 different hair treatments from old hollywood glam to beachy wave looks. I went for the “pillow talk” look which is beachy, toussled waves with a waterfall plait across the back whilst Lauren had the old hollywood glam do and Hanh with the “Cheryl-esque inspired, volumous red carpet look. I had the amazing Alis to style my hair and what a talented hair stylist she was! We were chatting all afternoon while getting my hair done and 1/2 hour later my hair was done with curling tongs and braiding skills.
The blow dry bar not only offers hair treatments but a full service including drinks upon arrival and magazines to flick through for inspiration. You can also get your nails done at the nail bar which is perfect to get that all round girls night out experience and save you time to hop between salons/nail bars. Usually, ideas for a hen night, girls night out are restricted to spa treatments, manicures and afternoon teas, but to have a blow dry experience as an alternative experience is definitely one my list for future girly day experiences. Thank you Blo Blow Dry Bar for an amazing, complimentary experience and I will definitely come by again with my sisters.
