Blow Dry Bar, Broadbeach

My hair can be difficult to manage. Though on a normal day I am happy to let it get wild and curly, sometimes for a special occasion it is nice to feel more polished and ‘done up’.

Despite my best efforts, every time I try to do my hair it is such a battle, so when I received an email asking if I would like to try out the newly opened Blow Dry Bar, I jumped at the opportunity to avoid some frustration, booking in to prepare for a night out with the girls.

The Blow Dry Bar opened a couple of weeks ago at the Oracle Building in Broadbeach, and is the first of its kind on the Gold Coast. Though they offer all the services of a normal hairdresser, they specialise in blow drys – perfect for if you don’t have a chance to go home before heading out or if, like me, you would prefer to avoid the struggle to get your hair to cooperate.

I arrived for my appointment and was instantly well looked after by the lovely staff, declining the complimentary glass of sparkling wine as I was driving. At the sink I was treated to a spot of relaxation – nothing says luxury like having your hair washed for you – as the wonderful smell of the Bangstyle products filled the air.

After a chat with the lovely girls they set about taming my locks – and I must say they did a fantastic job. It was a team effort that took me from my natural curls to a straight blow-wave, then back to curly with the help of a GHD to get me feeling glamorous for the night ahead.

Before / After

I was in and out within an hour (would have been even faster if I had gone for a straight look) and left feeling on top of the world. I only wished it wasn’t such a warm afternoon that forced me to tie my hair up for a while before going out.

My only complaint would be the parking situation around the Oracle building – there are pay and display bays on street and paid parking underground, but it is an incredibly busy area. If you are happy to have a short stroll there is free parking available at the surf club just up the road.

Overall I had a fantastic experience, and my hair stayed looking fabulous all night despite my midday appointment.  For a special occasion I would definitely return for their $40 wash and blow dry deal, even bringing a couple of girlfriends along to make the most of the whole experience.

The Blow Dry Bar hosted me as a guest for my visit.  This did not affect my review, and the above is my honest opinion based on the experience.
