The Blow Bar

Party season is approaching fast and the number of events starts to build up in the diary. Sadly, along with the excitement, the humidity levels are also rising which does nothing for helping us achieve glamorous hair for post-work fesivitities.

I've been known to pop my GHDs and hairspray in my handbag for quick restyle at my desk before venturing out, but proximity to a large mirror and strange looks from my colleagues doesn't make this the complete problem-solver.

For all you lovely London Ladies, I have found the perfect solution. The Blow Bar found in Camden Passage, just by Angel tube offers a fantastic service. You can swing by after work or head over in you lunch break to get your locks preened and ready to party in under half an hour.

Going in...

You can choose from the menu of nine different styles or tell the stylist what you envisage and they'll create If you're in a hurry you can skip the wash and go straight for the styling, whilst you sip on a cocktail or glass of bubbles from the fully licensed bar.

When I popped in on a rainy Wednesday before having dinner with the girls I opted for the Gin Twist, one of the four new styles, launched to celebrate the Blow Bar's 1st birthday. The stunning Candice coiffured my mane with speed and precision, the result looking pretty much identical to the picture I'd been promised.


Remembering the pain of ballet mums pinning my hair back before performances in my youth, I wish they had Candice's soft touch. Whist the style was delicately pinned in place, my hair stayed perfectly intact from 3pm until my head hit the pillow, receiving compliments from my girlies in the evening and beauty journalists at a launch I attended that afternoon.

New styles on offer

The salon also has a room upstairs where you can change into you frock, large mirrors so you can freshen up your make up and you can even leave your work outfit in safe hand to collect the following day.

A signature style from the Blow Bar costs £24, they also provide a Wedding Service from £44 or why not host your hen do at the gorgeous salon?
