Duck & Dry
Ever had a bad hair day before a date? I'm sure we all do and we happened to find a solution here.
Earlier this week, we popped into the newly opened Duck & Dry just off Oxford Circus. The moment I'm in, I was already greeted with the super cheerful Spanish sunshine, Ricky (I hope I get his name right!) was absolutely a star and already made me feel right at home.
We walked around the venue for a bit - brightly lit, super spacious, unlike any other hair salon we've been in Hong Kong (super crammed!), it was absolutely a stunning venue!
One of the reasons I was quite excited to visit is that this 'Blow Dry Bar' concept was a rare thing around Asia. People do blow dry every now and then, but a standalone 'blow dry bar' was never a thing and I absolutely love the idea. It was a pleasure meeting Yulia, the founder of Duck & Dry, on that day and intrigued to hear how the venue could be transformed into a wedding shower, girls night-out, birthday party, I'm pretty keen to throw one myself! Parties aside (oh did I mention they offer Prosecco upon arrival :P), busy working ladies fear not - they're also open early in the morning 730AM, just ready for you to pop in for a nice blow-out before work, how thoughtful!
Here a little more from Yulia, founder of Duck & Dry:
How did it all started with Duck & Dry product line? What was the catalyst that sparked your interest to start a blow-dryblow dry essentials?
“I wanted to bottle the Duck & Dry experience and create a capsule range of haircare and styling solutions that fulfil our salon needs while also being easy to use for our clients – enabling professional blow dry at home when we are not at hand. The result is a serious product line with serious credentials, injected with a sense of fun and style. We take pride in our independent small batch approachand commitment to natural solutions that work.”
What do you think is the oneproduct that would be a must-try from Duck & Dry?
Our top favourite (we call it our ‘styling hero!’) is Blow Dry In A Bottle – mega volume spray. It is everything you need for a blow dry as just a small of amount will give your hair a weightless root lift, body throughout, texture and super shine. And while volume for those with fine hair is important, it is the texture and hold of this styling product that allows for a better grip when styling and holds your desired style in place for longer.
All the products in the Duck & Dry range are cruelty free and formulated with natural active ingredients that are kind to the hair.
