Is there anyone that doesn’t love a good blowout? I was super excited when I was given the chance to head to Blo in Covent Garden*. Blo is Gwyneth Paltrow’s blow dry bar franchise, which operates a no cut, no colour service – strictly blow dries and hair styling only.
It’s a massively popular trend in the States, and definitely a welcome addition! My hair is really thick, and quite hard to style – I blow dry it almost everyday, but as an amateur it doesn’t really seem to hold a style for very long.
Luckily, this isn’t the sort of thing that phases the team at Blo. They have a whole ‘hair menu’ of styles to choose from – from intricate fishtail plaits and braided hairstyles to more traditional blowouts.
I was able to relax, chat to my lovely stylist and have a cup of tea through the whole process – really very civilised. On weekday mornings, they also do a breakfast bar with pastries, fruit and porridge – which is such a fantastic idea!
I would wholeheartedly recommend the experience – they also have a loyalty card, meaning you can get a styling for free after you go a few times. It’s perfect for a weekend treat, or to get before a big important meeting for work!
* I was kindly given the opportunity to go to Blo for the purposes of review – all opinions are fully my own, and I wouldn’t blog about it if I didn’t love the service!
