*I was given this experience to try in return for this blog post, however all opinions are my own*
I’ve always wanted to have a blowdry in a blowdry bar, but Newcastle just doesn’t have them. I mean, we have plenty of salons that would do it, but nowhere that is as chic and beautiful as Duck & Dry. I was invited along to try their services and share with you all what I thought. My hair is the type of hair where whenever I need it to look good, it never does. Looks incredible right before you shower and wash it, but need it to look good for a special occasion? Nah. Sometimes it’s just easier not to fight it, and rope in a professional.
I was originally booked in for a head massage and blowdry at their Mayfair store, which is just off Oxford Street. A great location which is very easy to get to. Unfortunately, I think there had been a mix up with the booking so I didn’t get the chance to get a massage, but there’s always next time!
The interior of Duck & Dry Mayfair was truly stunning, such a beautiful spot that is absolutely Instagram worthy. It is chic and luxury, which I’m sure you can see from the images. Exposed brickwork, marble tabletops and neon signs. As you go further in, each hairstylist has its own booth.
I’m sure you’ve probably had your hair done in a salon before, so I’ll spare you the details of the hair wash, but it was amazing and I found out that Duck & Dry actually have their own Duck & Dry Products. Haircare products are some of my favourite to trial out, so I’ll be sure to try them out and get back to you all.
I went for a curly style and opted for a curling wand rather than being blowdried with the hairdryer, as my hair holds better that way. We curled it tighter because my hair drops out and I was so in love with the result, my hair looked beachy and beautiful. My hair was so glossy and full of body, just how I like it. I was filming later that day with the Prince’s Trust, so I wanted my hair to be extra special.
Next time I’m in London, I will absolutely give Duck and Dry another visit. My hair was beautiful and it was such a lovely treat. The Mayfair branch also has Duck & Pluck, which has eyebrow and eyelash services.
