You’re welcome.

Is there anything better than a good hair day?

To be perfectly honest, I would rather a stunning curly blow dry over a gorgeous face of makeup any day.

For me, getting a blow dry is the ultimate treat, and I always feel fan-fucking-tastic after one (especially if there’s a cheeky head massage involved!)

So that me thinking about the various places I’ve had a blow dry in recent years.

With that, I decided to make a list of the best curly blowdries in Dublin – so you know where to go the next time you need an excuse for one.

So without further adieu, here are my five current favourites…

Blow Salon at The Intercontinental Hotel.

Honourable mention here goes to the gorgeous staff – I have never met nicer people in my life. The finished product is absolutely excellent of course, but they get extra points for soundness. There are four Blow locations in Dublin, so you have a few options. To find out more, and to book yourself in for a lil treat, click here.

Dylan Bradshaw on South William Street. 

Dylan Bradshaw’s raw approach to hairdressing has earned him a reputation as Ireland’s most influential industry figure, and his salon is a perfect example of why. You are always guaranteed to leave with a smile on your face. Check out their website here.

Aveda at The Brown Thomas Beauty Lounge. 

Lads, this is not simply a blow dry – it’s an experience. You will get a stunning blow dry, along with a complementary hair and scalp check with the brand’s signature camera which will diagnose all your hair’s needs. There’s almost a ritual element to the service. SO gorgeous. To book an appointment just call 01-6171172 or email [email protected].

Wildflower in Ranelagh. 

The new kid on the block, Wildflower is a creative studio in Ranelagh, that aim to achieve that beautiful look you have always wanted. It has a boho feel from the minute you walk in, and when you walk out, you’ll walk with a spring in your step. Seriously, you need to check this place out!

The Salon at The Shelbourne Hotel.

Would I call this place a sanctuary located in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Dublin? Yes, I absolutely would. It’s an environment specifically designed to let people escape, unwind, relax and indulge. Sounds gorge, right? There’s also a cheeky glass of bubbly for you on arrival. Say no more. Book yourself in here.
