Blo Blow Dry Bar Covent Garden

A couple of week's ago I was invited over to the Blo Blow Dry Bar in Covent Garden* to see what it was all about. As you can imagine I jumped at the chance to have my hair done! I'm not great at styling it at the best of times so any tips I can pick up and I'm there.

If you haven't heard of Blo before, the salon hails from across the pond and recently opened in the Covent Garden Piazza. The idea is pretty simple (and pretty good); you choose one of seven hairstyles from the menu and £28 and 45 minutes or so later you're good to go. With fantastically coiffed hair. For those that are a bit scared of the hairdresser, you really don't need to worry at Blo. There's no scissors or hair dye in sight, just gorgeous hairdos to choose from.

Onto the hairstyles themselves, there's loads of choice. Whether you have long, hair, straight or curly hair there's something everyone. As I said before, I'm no natural when it comes to curling and twirling my hair so I picked the Holly Would. It's a gorgeously volumnous and curly style so it just had to be done.

My hair is super soft and annoying to style as it just slides out of everything, so it took a lot of blow drying, pinning and hairspray but we got there! I was going out for lunch afterwards so I wanted my hair to last as long as possible. The hairdresser used a few Unite products on my hair which I was super impressed with. I've heard a lot about Unite so it was great to finally try them. Especially the hairspray, it kept my hair in place all afternoon without feeling crispy or sticky. I'm gonna have to pick some up now and get practising with those straightening irons.

I love the concept of Blo, especially as someone who often has a long day at work and then goes to events afterwards in the evening. The idea of popping into a salon and them washing and styling your hair so you're all fresh and ready for whatever you have planned is great. It's also only 20 minutes from my office so I will be back, that's for certain. Just need to find an event to go to and pick out a 'do to match...
