I am incredibly lazy with my hair. I thought that when I cut it into a bob I would be inspired to blow dry it, style it… do *anything* with it. But no: I rough-dry it, straighten my fringe and leave the rest to fend for itself.
With this in mind, the concept of blow dry bars is music to my ears. They’ve been around in the US for ages and they’re finally getting bigger over here, much to my joy. The concept is simple: you pop in, have your hair washed and styled and you’re good to go. Such a great idea if you have a night out or busy weekend or just want to treat yourself.
A few weeks ago I was very kindly invited to Vos Beauty Salon in Chelsea to try out some of their treatments. It’s on the King’s Road, right opposite The Bluebird restaurant so it’s in a great location. I love that part of London: it’s brilliant for wandering around, staring at houses and cars that you might buy if you win the lottery or marry a rich oligarch. Always a fun way to pass the time!

I had been bored with my hair for a while: it was just long blonde hair and I didn’t feel like I ever did anything with it. It wasn’t even a hairstyle, it was just…hair growth.
