Last Saturday, I visited the new Duck & Dry X press in Primark on Oxford Street, London. The blow dry bar has a bright and beautifully modern layout – perfect for those Instagram photos. Duck & Dry is originally known as being London’s finest blow dry bar with several salons dotted around London. Recently, they have teamed up with Primark to attract a wider range of customers by offering in-store beauty services including hair, threading and nails – what an amazing idea, right?!
The lovely Nicolas managed to transform my flat and non-voluminous hair into something quite spectacular. Just see for yourself in the images below…
Nicolas took time and extra care with my hair and that is the reason it turned out so great. I wish I could get him to do my hair everyday, honestly he is amazing at his job and a really down-to-earth guy. He used a combination of Bed Head and Primark products, I am aware that Duck & Dry also offer their own hair care brand which you can check out here!
So, this is my hair after Nicolas worked his magic… I mean WOW! My hair has some really lovely waves and when it is styled like this the low lights that I have recently had put into my hair really do look amazing. If you didn’t know, I recently got my hair cut at the Sister Joan Salon in Margate – you can catch-up and read that post here!
There was also a threading station at the Duck & Dry X Press in Primark – how impressive? I got my eyebrows and upper lip threaded as I really did need it, haha! I always prefer to get my eyebrows threaded instead of waxed because my skin is very sensitive due to having eczema and also threading lasts longer!
Last but not least, the Duck & Dry X Press also has a nail service. I got my nails done by the lovely Nina, who took great care and precision when doing my nails. There was a lovely selection of Candy Coat gel colors to choose from, I went for the Dark Plum color!
Overall, Elise and I had a wonderful time at the new Duck & Dry X press. I love the fact that you can do a bit of shopping and then stop off for some in-store beauty services to make you feel extra special. The atmosphere of the whole place is so welcoming, the staff is one the main contributors as to why the place is as great as it is! I will definitely be returning on my next visit to London!
What’s more is that all of these services are very reasonably priced. Check out the price list that I have taken from the Duck & Dry website below to see for yourself!
Also, did you know that Duck & Dry have also teamed up with the new Primark in Birimingham (the largest Primark in the world) and have opened a salon in store – how exciting!
Will you be visiting the new Duck & Dry X Press?
