The amount of times I’ve written about a new blow-dry bar on my blog seems like a lot, but before you roll your eyes and say “Christy, there’s one on every corner now!” hear me out.
Yesterday I visited Blush + Blow which recently opened its doors in the cutest little patch of Parson’s Green. The second I stepped in I felt welcome and cosy. I had booked in for a blow-dry and gel manicure and (because I’m always in a rush) was delighted to find out that the two could be done simultaneously. My stylist gave me one of those head massages where you fall asleep and spoke knowledgeably about my hair type and the best products to use. While she was giving me a bouncy blow-dry my manicurist perfected the perfect gold chrome nails (literally perfect for party season!) and about 45 minutes later I felt like a new woman.
Blush + Blow was founded by makeup artist and beauty journalist Bridget O’Keeffe who had a vision to create a luxury blow dry and beauty bar with treatments that were delivered by experts and great value for money. There’s even an in-house play area so that if you need to drag your Minis along they will be perfectly entertained.
Blush + Blow also offers make-up, waxing, facials and spray tans. The blowdries cost a super reasonable £25 and there are various packages you can purchase if you’re a blow-out addict like I am. I’m dying to go back and a pedicure (a) because I know it will lovely and (b) because I want to sit in the oh-so-lovely pedicure area.
Just in time for party season Blush + Blow are offering a Christmas party prep package which includes a gel manicure, spray tan, Nouveau LVL eyelash application, and a blow-dry all for £150.
