We love a big bouncy blow dry here at DOSE, and luckily plenty of places do them brilliantly and quickly. Whether it’s party curls or a cool wave, here’s where you can go to feel like a million dollars at the hands of experts…
Blow dries at swanky Neville on Pont Street start at just £25. The signature ‘do here is a five-day blow dry: a hard-working blow dry that will get you through a full working week. No need to wash daily or stress before a big event, presentation or date – this blow dry will see you through all of it in style. How does it last so long? Volumiser, placement of conditioner at the tips only, and hair serum used lightly and sparingly. “When it comes to blow dries, less is more” says Neville’s co-founder Elena Lavagni. ‘It’s not about how much, its where you place it.”
One of the most classic names in the business, you know you’re getting pro treatment here. Check out their Instagram for the loose wave blow dry, one of the most requested looks at DG, and book yourself in pronto. The salon is gorgeous, too.
There are a few Duck & Dry’s across London, the latest being Mayfair, so they should be convenient to pop into no matter where you are. Try any of their eight recommended styles, from Va Va Voom to Beach Locks and The Classic, a vision of smooth, glamorous waves. There’s also a Prosecco bar for the ultimate in getting-ready fun.
An excellent addition to Mortimer Street, Dry By does five key blow dry looks making it easy to narrow down the perfect style for you. Glow Bar and Psycle are right next door, so your before and after options are numerous. Dry By’s salon is chic and savvy – just what we need.
A gorgeous salon in Mayfair, Jo Hansford is super luxe – not cheap, but worth it. Staff are lovely and the service is brilliant – they know exactly what you want and what will suit without you even needing to articulate it. One for special occasions.
This flagship on Berners Street is a beauty emporium with an excellent blow dry bar. This is the place to get creative – try a braid if you fancy it or a Wave Perm for some serious curl action.
The salon in this brand new womens-only members club is a dream; a one stop shop for manis, pedis, and of course, blow dry appointments. Open to non-members too, there are four stations and you can choose from a regular blow dry, tonging, up dos and more. Book in now to be ahead of the curve.
