The top blow-dry bars in the City of London


Nothing lifts your look faster than a fresh blow dry. Whether you’re making a quick pit stop between the boardroom and the bar or in search of a solid pampering sesh, these hair salons will sort you out, no sweat.


With 20 salons across Central London, the Rush name is highly regarded as a key ingredient for a Good Hair Day. Rush Moorgate has recently reopened in larger, slicker new digs on Eldon Street with appointments available from 7am until well into the evening to accommodate busy City schedules. Short on time? Senior stylist Virginie will work wonders with a consultation, trim, style and blow wave in under an hour.

One of the first to pioneer the blow out bar concept, Hershesons has built a menu of 12 blow-dry options to suit all styles, spends and schedules. Try The Classic for a sleek Upper East Side look, The Flave for a runway-inspired flat wave or The Twisted Sista for and up-do with undone charm.

Blow Dry Express

Blow Dry Express have named their nine blow waves after areas of London. The City Slicker is an office-ready poker-straight, ultra-shiny style, while the Shoreditch trap is a street-style bun with plenty of attitude. For a more casual look, try the Aldgate Braid, a plait crown that will last the whole weekend.
