Good hair day: London’s best blow dry bars for fabulously festive hair

Posted On By Director

Long gone are the summer days with their regular, natural doses of Vitamin D and cloudless blue skies. Winter is well and truly here — with its freezing temperatures and dark evenings — and, unfortunately, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.

The season’s inclement weather can leave hair feeling limp, lifeless and, quite frankly, a little dull. Having been deprived of natural sunlight, and with cold air sucking out every drop of moisture, your locks are probably in need of some expert TLC. And what better way to do so than a bouncy blow dry? Treat yourself to a luscious treatment this festive season at one of London’s best blow dry bars.

GA Salons, across London

GA Salons

Focusing on using natural, curative products, Gennaro Dell’aquila (better known as GA) Salons have put an end to chemical treatments in favour of natural products your hair will love. All GA products are made by hand in the salon and only use fresh herbs and ingredients, perfect for those with sensitive scalps. After your bespoke hair treatment — with options ranging from Oway to Olaplex — revives your follicles, let the stylists do the work to boost your hair’s bounce with the hairdryer while you sit back in the golden-hued salon. With several locations across the capital, including in Chelsea, South Kensington, Notting Hill and Wimbledon, book at your convenience.

Clo & Flo, South Kensington and Borough

Clo and Flo

There’s a lot more to Clo & Flo than meets the eye. Founded by two sisters, the salon is adorned with living walls and boasts a Pilates studio, nail bar and hair salon. In the words of Clo and Flo themselves, they are “prompting wellbeing from the inside out”. After you’ve enjoyed a good stretch and toning class, followed by a green juice, rejuvenate sweat-tinged hair with a good blow dry so you can leave looking and feeling good.

Hare & Bone, Fitzrovia

Hare and Bone

If you’re in need of a speedy lunchtime or pre-date blow dry, look no further than Hare & Bone. The brightly-lit, monochrome-style salon can have you in and out of the styling chair within the hour, so it’s the perfect bar for those on the go. If time is on your side, however, incorporate a Kerasilk Bond Protection Treatment prior to your blow dry to give locks an extra layer of protection against the heat.
