...Salons For Blow-Dries

Date: 23.07.10 Category:

“Feeling low? Wish you were holidaying on The Med? Then get a lift from the roots as nothing gives a boost better than a professional blow-dry.”

Sophisticated but relaxed Paul Edmonds in Knightsbridge is ideal for a post-shopping spruce. Blow-dries from £25. Likewise, chic and stylish, Daniel Galvin never fails to deliver spectacular results and a top service. Located between Baker Street and Bond Street tube, it is easy to squeeze in a visit between the other pressures of the day. Blow-dries from £26. Or Stephen Way on New Bond Street is also brilliantly located if you are heading out in the West End afterwards. Blowdries start at £38.

The Chelsea-located, award-winning salon, Richard Ward can take credit for many a celeb’s locks. A visit to the salon is always an experience. Blow- dries from £30. In contrast to the modern metrospa vibe of Richard Ward, Taylor Taylor in Shoreditch offers a boutique salon and lists Kings of Leon and La Roux amongst their clients. So for hair with edge, head here without delay. They are also open till 9pm on Thursdays for extra convenience. Blow-dries from £25. Another chic-boutique style salon is Brooks and Brooks in Bloomsbury. It has won hairdresser of the year three times and offers blow-dries from £25.

And last but not least, the two Kell Skott salons (off Westbourne Grove and on Golbourne Road) offer a walk-in blow-dry service for just £17 – perfect for a last minute hair fix to get you ‘set’ for the day or night ahead.
