I've always been the blow dry's biggest fan - when you have pretty flat and fine hair like myself they quickly become extremely addictive. So I was very excited to be heading down to the new RUSH salon in Hammersmith for their full blow dry experience.
After a quick shampoo (and a very relaxing head massage) Vicky, my hair stylist, started everything off with a couple of drops of Moroccan Oil and a blob of the L'Oreal Professionnel Tecni Art Liss Control. The two work together to smooth away frizz and dry ends with the Liss Control ensuring a stronger hold.
Then after sectioning all my hair off Vicky got to work on the individual areas. She really paid such attention to detail, taking super small sections at a time to give the style extra lasting power. I'd explained to Vicky how my hair struggles to hold a curl so to give it that extra boost she also pinned each section up to help the curls set properly. Once all the sections were done Vicky spritzed my hair with the L'Oreal Professionnel Tecni Art Air Fix Spray, and we left all the pins in for another five minutes.
I took this five minutes to quickly quiz Vicky on her favourite tips for a blow dry. A good styling cream was her top recommendation, like the Liss Control used, but also to go for a matte hairspray. I didn't even know that such a thing existed, but Vicky explained how the matte kind never leaves the hair with a sticky coating and creates a stronger, but more natural looking, hold.
The finished result was heaps of root lift and bounce that made me want to hair-swish all the way home - thank you Vicky! A blow dry at RUSH starts from £32.00 and all new customers receive an amazing 25% off your first appointment.
