If you want your hair to look like you’ve just stepped of the catwalk then it’s definitely worth paying Hersheshons Blow Dry Bar a visit. This is a great way to transform your everyday hair into a dramatic evening look in just 30 minutes. Simply walk in (no appointment necessary), browse the eight fabulous styles on the menu and choose your favourite for the team of stylists to recreate.
The menu is ever changing but currently features 8 signature looks which you’ll have difficulty choosing between:
The Super Straight
Super sleek, poker straight hair for a sophisticated and sexy take on the modern goth. Inspired by fashion’s enduring style icons Carine Roitfeld and Jane Birkin.
A tougher, up-to-the-minute interpretation of the classic Bardot. Forget the sex-kitten, this looser up-do adds a little boyish edge to any outfit.
Recreate the glamour of silver screen goddesses Rita Heyworth or Sophia Loren. These perfectly, polished waves pay tribute to the style legacy of French hairdresser Francois Marcel.
The Rick Rack Jack
Reworking an old school technique used to create frizz, this is a fresher version for anyone wanting to channel a retro, 1970s American vibe. A style that complements dressed up or down fashion.
The references here are pure Upper East Side Manhattan. Sleek, polished and very groomed. For those who like their hair to scream ‘expensive’.
A lady-like elegance that pays homage to Hitchcock heroine, Tippy Hedren. Added height at the crown creates a retro glamour yet the look remains modern by ensuring the front and sides are kept flat.
The Wavy Gravy
A Hersheson classic which is undoubtedly the defining hair style of the Noughties. Touselled beach babe meets rock’n’roll. Kate and Sienna we salute you.
The Big and Brushed
Another look pushing the high-octane lifestyle. Similar to the ‘classic’ but with a bouncier, more fresher feel to hair that has a ton of movement.
You can ether visit the blow dry bar in the basement of Topshop’s Oxford street branch, or venture on over to the new and enormous Westfield centre in Shepard’s Bush.
All styles are priced at £22 and if you are concerned there is nothing on the menu to suit your style then note that the stylists are flexible and will taylor the chosen look to suit your style.
