#LoveisintheHair: Kara's Blow Dry Bar

Sunday, 8 March 2015
 Fancy a quick primping? Try out Kara's Blow Dry Bar!

I was invited to experience an evening of beautifying at Kara's Blow Dry Bar, a small salon based on John Dalton Street, which is just off Albert Square in the Manchester City Centre. The place was already buzzing when I arrived, with people already getting their make-up, hair and nails done. 

I helped myself to drinks courtesy of The Milton Club (and a cheeky cupcake!) before finding out more about Kara's. I've never experienced a blow dry bar before, but the concept is relatively simple - just a quick wash, and Kara's Blowettes will blow dry your hair into one of the choices from their menu! That night, since there were so many people, the staff used a hair straightener on me instead, but I loved my resulting 'Californian curls'. They were tight curls and very bouncy, and lasted till about 2 days later when I had to wash my hair.

Another great thing about Kara's is that they're really flexible with appointments. A lot of working women (and students) are constantly on the go, but Kara's is unique in enabling you to book a blow dry whenever your schedule permits, whether it's 7am in the morning or even a quick one during lunch. That's customer service for you!

The night was also a publicity event for Tanya Bardsley's (from The Real Housewives of Chesire fame) new book, all about self-empowerment and achieving your goals for girls. She looked absolutely stunning!

I also caught up with some Manchester bloggers - Anoushka, Sabina, Joanna and Anna. Loved how all their hair looked after we were totally pampered by Kara's.

Many thanks to Stephanie from Ledigo PR for organising this event! It was so fabulous and I'm really excited to see what other plans you have in store!
