What’s It Like At The French Connection Blow Bar, London

Last Sunday I took myself down to Regent Street. 
I ate a lot of Magnum ice cream and absorbed the summer time buzz in central London.
On Sunday’s, Regent Street is closed off from road traffic and the streets are lined with performers and as much as the live bands delighted me, I was in the area to check out the new Blow Bar nestled within the French Connection store. 
After seeing a glittering review on the Vogue website I was very excited to be invited along to see how I could be transformed into a pampered lady in under an hour, all complete with a few glasses of Prosecco of course!
With eight looks from natural beauty to rock chick to choose from I started my treatment’s with hair stylist Ayesha who worked her magic on my hair.
To help restore some life into my damaged tresses, Ayesha used the Redken Extreme shampoo and the All Soft conditioner to pack the nutrients back into my dry, over processed hair, all whilst giving me the most relaxing head massage.
Ayesha then used the Redken Iron Shape 11 to make sure my hair was protected from the heat that was going to be applied via a curling wand to create the loose waves.
With my hair waved to perfection and feeling much more supple, shiny and soft it was time for a manicure. 
The Blow Bar team use OPI polishes so you know that you are having a quality polish applied to your nails, I went for the shade: ‘Honk if you love OPI’ which is a beautiful, deep purple shade.
After another glass of Prosecco and a flick through Vogue whilst my nails dried it was time to head over for make-up.
The Blow Bar uses Lord and Berry products which are some of my absolute favourites when it comes to products for the lips and eyes.
As I was sticking with the rock chick theme I decided to try a smokey eye/deep purple lip look.
And after just 20 minutes the finished look was revealed!
Sexy, smokey and seriously sultry.
The team at The Blow Bar are super friendly and make you feel very welcome.
I think this is the perfect way to get glam in your lunch break or whilst you’re out shopping and all in under 30 minutes!
At £20 for a make over, £15 for perfectly painted paws and £25 for a blow all out do – it is an affordable quickie with fantastic results.
