Just before Christmas I was invited to check out the newly opened Blow Dry Bar at Emporium in Fortitude Valley. I jumped at the opportunity! I had never been to a salon that specialised in 'blow dries' before and always felt as though I was wasting the time of hairdressers in other salons by requesting one.
My partner and I were going out for dinner that night and I was hoping to find a salon that could work magic on my hair for special occasions.
I found just that.
|My 'before' hair. Unstyled and looking a little flat/dead.|
The BDB is in a great location - Emporium is a place that I enjoy visiting. It's surrounded by delicious food options and has parking available.
The salon itself is gorgeous! I loved the detailing in the decor and felt instantly glamorous when I stepped in the door! The staff are also lovely (which helps!) and a glass of champagne was much appreciated as well!
The black tiles were absolutely stunning! I could't help but think how great they would look as a bathroom feature wall.
|Whoops, my Mecca Maxima shopping bag. Caught in action...|
Vintage inspired, brushed out curls was deemed the destiny for my hair.
To create this look? Firstly, a blow dry.
|And a glass of champagne...|
Then out came the GHD. One day I will learn how to create amazing curls, one day...
Amazing curls like this!
And I was transformed into a modern day goldilocks! This is how I have always dreamt my hair would look when I woke up in the mornings - amazing!
You can grab a blow dry at the BDB for $40 for every length and style.
Up-do's go for $45-$75 and a
Style Cut & Blowdry is $80.
For a full list of services and prices, check out the menu online.
The gorgeous staff! They are fabulously chatty as well (just the way I like it!).
My curls were put up for me, so I could continue shopping with ease! It makes quite a pretty updo if you ask me!
The BDB is definitely a salon I would head to before any special event, or just to treat myself. Why fuss over your own hair for hours? At $40 you can end up feeling pampered and leave feeling refreshed. A much better scenario if you ask me!

Hope you all have a great night! xx
