Time Out says

Refresh your hair at this blow dry salon that’s as cute as your new ‘do

Try as we might, not all of us are naturals with a hairdryer or styling tongs. That doesn’t mean we need to forgo the luxury of fresh hair before a big event (or you know, just because). Get your hair washed, dried and styled to perfection at the Blow, on the corner of Russell and Little Collins streets.

Stepping into the Blow is a little like stepping back to the 1960s, with the cosy salon exuding a feminine, minimalist aesthetic created by local interior designers Tecture and awash in millennial pink tones and blush red highlights. The difference is this salon isn’t filled with housewives – its prime CBD spot means it attracts Melbourne’s hard-working professionals with the allure of a blow dry that’ll have them in and out within their lunch break.

If you dread the question “so what are we doing today”, you’re in luck. The Blow makes things easy with a six-style menu that includes a thorough cleanse (the Blow uses R+Co products). With everything from rich girl waves to glossy straight locks, there’s something for everyone, and you can deviate slightly if you’ve something in mind.

If you don’t have to rush you can treat yourself to something extra with hair treatments, braiding, clip-in extensions and scalp massages also offered (be warned, the scalp massage might be so good you fall asleep).

The Blow is open six days a week from 7am (8am on Saturdays).
