New York Fashion Week Diary Part II: “The Hair”

Sometimes I genuinely love my hair and sometimes I want to cut it all off.  Mainly I’d love to be able to “do” more with my hair, or at least have lower maintenance locks – I’m convinced that keeping a frizz free curly mane is a) more work that it should be and b) a bit of a lost cause since the frizz always finds a way to creep back.  That was, until I encountered my new best friend Blow NY.

Blow offer several different blow out services costing between $40-60 for a shampoo and styling.  I had my curls defined with an iron for $10 extra.  Want an up do? No problem – try Glamhair.  Blow even come to your home if you’re that much in need!

I visited Blow NY just before all the lovely events began in Manhattan for New York Fashion Week.  I spoke to my stylist Chrissie about what I wanted and her marvellous care and attention gave me fabulous curls and condition that I loved and which lasted.  I will definitely go back to the bar – it’s a treat to have a blow dry but I approach this in the same way I approach manicures, massages and all things I consider to be the realm of the high maintenance woman* (yes, really!!) I don’t do it often, so when I do, it’s ok to splurge a little.

If you live in Manhattan and want a little hair-pampering I would absolutely recommend Blow NY.  You might even see me there…. they do cuts and colour alongside their regular blow out services and that’s next for me….

* Ok ok so I bite my nails.  Manicures ain’t happening.  And I do actually like massages I just always prioritize clothes over pampering. Every time….hey ho.
