We seem to be having a Monday hair theme going on, no idea why – sometimes it just works out that way.
And I am having me a bit of hair fad at the moment (nine times out of ten it’s some kind of make-up obsession but a change is good right?)
I bet there are some of you who are just amazing at barnet styling and won’t give what to do for W-day a second thought i.e. you are more than happy to create the perfect do yourself. If not then I’m guessing there are many of you who have employed the services of a talented professional who will ensure your locks are 100% perfect from initial aisle shimmying to the very last dance.
If you fall into neither of the above categories (and don’t happen to have a friend who is particularly handy with a hairbrush) then I may have another option available, and that is the Daniel Hersheson Blow Dry bar. Admittedly they are only available in the London area at present but if you are looking for a red-carpet worthy look that’s done in a jiffy (less than thirty minutes!) and is a bit of a bargain (just £24…) then it may be an option for you.
You don’t even have to book an appointment, you can literally just stroll in, pick a style from the “menu” (yes much like you would a cocktail) and away you go. Of course we wouldn’t recommend not making an appointment for the big day but for a last minute fix then it’s ideal.
I had heard of the blow dry bar in one of my many glossy magazines but hadn’t tried the experience myself until a few weeks ago when I was in desperate need of something a little more “done” for Jo’s Flapper and Dapper affair.
And as previously stated, I waited a mere 5 minutes until Dixie, a blunt fringed red-head, worked her magic on my flat and somewhat frazzled hair.
I asked Dixie (I think this may be my new favourite name..) for the Bardot but with a little more lift and oomph (think Patsy from Absolutely Fabulous…) and twenty minutes later that’s exactly what I got.
(please do excuse the “I am doing a toothpaste commercial” cheesy grin – one bellini too many I’m afraid.)
And if it’s not an “up-do” you fancy then how about wearing your hair down but with a touch of extra shine and volume? there are also a range of ways to wear it long and luscious at the Blow Dry bar too y’know….
Have any of you gorgeous lot tried the Blow Dry Bar?
Are you considering any of the above styles for W-day?
And do you think you will be attempting to style your own locks or are you one of those lucky ladies who has a friend that can do immense tricks with some mousse and a comb (and if you do can I please make them my friend too?)
A couple of my favourite styles at the moment are:
A sleek chignon (especially when decorated with delicate flowers)
L.A Glamour (much like the big and brushed image above)
A loose fishtail plait.
Would love to know what your favourites are and what you are considering for W-day.
Oh and if you are making a trip to the Westfield branch of blow dry bar ask for Dixie – she was ace.
