Joburg girls are known for their artfully rumpled hair, but make no mistake – unless you’re a dab hand with the old vented brush, blowdryco. is pretty essential to have in one’s little black book of beauty. At this newly revamped blow-dry bar in Parkhurst, the masterful stylists conjure that kind of easy insouciance and promise to make multitasking simple.
When it comes to blow-dry bars with Instagrammable décor, blowdryco. is the top of the Joburg hit list. Conveniently located on 4th Avenue, the bar’s relaxing surroundings are great spaces to chill out in – think pink interiors offset with a navy-blue statement wall and a whole lot of fresh roses Everything about this place (quietly) screams ‘treat yourself’, and the blow-dries are rather good too.
Nothing makes you feel quite as fabulous as a fresh, glossy blow-dry, but not all bars provide the same results. However, the services here are made to have staying power for guaranteed luscious locks and to make sure you always look good enough to bump into an ex. Whether you want soft and understated or big and bouncy, the menu consisting of five signature styles has got you covered.
We can personally recommend the Paris; an ace blow-dry that’s styled perfectly for your face shape with lovely, soft romantic curls. It starts with a serious shampoo using Kevin Murphy products and a divine scalp massage that results in extra volume and bounce that looks much better after you’ve slept on it. And did we mention the reclining chairs and hair perfume to finish it off? It’s worth every penny.
As well as their excellent hair services, under the blowdryco. roof you can now also book in to have a manicure and pedicure, brow shape and tint, lash lift and tint, henna spa tint, microblading, microshading, waxing and threading. If you’re in need of some real pampering, we recommend having a spa manicure at the same time as your blow-dry at one of their special tables (you’ll feel like a model). Don’t forget to ask what’s new – they’ve recently introduced the i-Spa Heel Peel treatment that’s well worth trying out.
blowdryco.’s combo of cruelty-free Kevin Murphy products, supreme hairdressing skill and bubbly atmosphere make for an addictive experience that’s hard to beat. It’s no wonder their loyal clients span the entirety of the City of Gold. PS: It’s a great choice for a social too; get the gals together and sip on chilled champagne while you get your hair and nails done.
