Blow Ltd: The Beach Blow

I have spent the last couple of days in our beautiful capital city, London. After hearing so much
 about Blow Ltd and their speedy beauty services I was determined to get myself booked
 in for a slice of the action. 

Blow Ltd describe themselves as being the home of fast beauty, and they really do live up to this.
 They offer hair, nails and make up updates at affordable prices and in no time at all.
Located in the Covent Garden area of London, it is clear to see from the outset that Blow Ltd
 is not just your average beauty salon. The aesthetics are cool yet understated and everything in there
 is on-trend and up to date.

When I entered Blow Ltd I was greeted by Tanya, my stylist, who sat my down and talked me
 through the menu. For me the menu really is the coolest part of the whole Blow Ltd experience
 as it offers the opportunity to show the stylist exactly what you want out of your blow dry. 
I opted for the beach blow as I was going to a gig later that day (to see the Arctic Monkeys
 at Finsbury Park no less) and wanted something nice and casual. Tanya noticed straight away that 
my hair is a little brittle at the moment and so used the Kerastase reconstructing shampoo
 and conditioner. After washing my hair my stylist took me over to the blow bar where she began
 to dry and create those beachy waves. It took me aback a little when Tanya pointed to an iPad
 mini in front of me and said 'there's some magazines on there if you would like to take a look'.
 Before I knew it I was flicking through the pages of the latest Elle magazine on a tablet, which
 gave Blow Ltd even more cool points in my books.

When my blow dry was finished (in 30 mins flat) Tanya asked me what I thought.
 I had honestly never seen my hair looking so big, voluptuous and glossy. I was impressed!
Tanya assured me that the waves should last well into the evening, and boy was she right.
 My beach waves lasted a good 8 hours, and I think they would have gone longer if it wasn't
 for the beer being thrown around at the gig.
The whole experience was quick but at no point ever felt rushed, which to me seems perfect in a
 city that is constantly on the go. I cannot recommend Blow Ltd enough and next time I'm in London
 I will be booking in to try another great option from their menu.

Have you visited Blow Ltd? What did you try?
