A Fast Fix at Duck & Dry

Mr S will have you believe that I can be a *little* impatient…don’t trust him, it’s not true…ok maybe it’s a little true. I like everything to be done quickly, in super fast time…and I mean now!! I’ve mentioned before the I love having my frizzy locks blow-dried to perfection, but even this I like done quickly. I’ve not come in for a long pampering sesh…I just want my hair done.

And that’s why I’m so glad the London is taking a leaf out of New York’s book and more and more blow dry bars are appearing throughout the capital…enter Duck & Dry in Chelsea!

So what makes Duck & Dry different to other blow dry bars?

Well firstly, and most importantly, there’s a bar….

 

 

Serving prosecco, coffee, juice and popcorn, with it being still rather early I chose to forgo the bubbles for once!

Also Duck & Dry isn’t boring and functional like other blow dry bars, it’s stylish and girlie with pretty pink touches, cool artwork and funky tiles.

I loved the fact that there was a menu of styles including eight blow-dries and eight updoes, plus add-on treatments and even hair styles for kids. To even further saved time you can come in with your hair already washed and get the express blow dry.

I chose ‘high tide waves’ from the style menu and the lovely Ella set about styling me pretty. I attempted to take bad mirror selfies as I found out a bit more about the salon; The Duck & Dry salon can be hired out for groups and events and are available for session work and weddings. The whole salon can even be hired as a pop-up to come your event! Ella smoothed, blowed, brushed and sprayed for about forty minutes as I chatted, tweeted and flicked through magazines.

I absolutely loved the resulting look and my glamorous bouncy waves were perfect for the wedding I was going to that night.

A big thanks to Duck & Dry for fixing my hair so quickly… I’ll be back to sample the prosecco 😉

  • Love the result! I don't normally get blow dries b/c I seem to always end up looking like a US senator's wife (no offense to US senators' wives), BUT I'd be up for giving this a try.

  • They need more of this sort of bar in the City! Perfect to freshen up before a night out with work

    • Definitely! I'm surprised that there isn't one…

  • Yay, you popped into Duck & Dry! I loved the fishtail braid they did for me – you should try it sometime, it's so much fun! x

    • I'm up for that next time 🙂

  • You'd think living in the North East where big hair is a must we'd have amazing blow dry bars up here – all we seem to have is a couple in the fancier department stores 🙁 Someone open a blow dry bar in Newcastle! I really want a go! x

    • I can definitely see this becoming a national thing 🙂

  • I was just in Duck and Dry yesterday for an event. Fab review! x

    • It's a good fun place isn't it!
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • Could not be more on the same page about wanting everything done in a flash haha! Always put off going to the hairdressers with the inevitable 3 hour disappearance from my weekend! Hair looks great 🙂 Lots of love, Andrea xxx

  • I have seen you have a few speedy blow dries and it really appeals. One of the things I hate about my hair is the washing drying part so having someone else to do it sounds wonderful. Yours looks lovely Lucy x
