In need of a beauty MOT? Meet Blush & Blow, your hair’s new best friend
Words Elizabeth Hutton
After a tough day it’s really hard to relax. Quiet, stylish and comfortable, this blow dry and beauty bar in Parsons Green make it possible. Founded by makeup artist, beauty blogger and entrepreneur Bridget O’Keeffe, Blush + Blow is a beautiful, quiet and stylish salon that offer all you need to feel amazing.
While the extensive menu offers services to sort your hair, skin, nails, brows, bikini line, back knots and, of course, make-up, I needed a pedicure and blow out. Sitting down with a cup of tea – peppermint naturally – I sunk into the giant armchair and felt like I could breathe for the first time in a long time.
Shopping from the shelves lined with Essie polishes I chose a sparkly hot pink to brighten up the increasingly dark winter months. My super friendly pedicurist (a member of Team Blush) worked quickly and precisely; she also works at fashion events where you have to good and fast. Popping on some little foam slippers I shuffled over from the gold foot washing basins to the long mirrors in the front. Here, a member of Team Blow washed and blew my hair to Chelsea girl perfection. The loose, glossy waves bounced around and looked so good I called my friends to arrange an emergency night out – hair that could needs to be seen.
