Hershesons have three blow dry bars in London. Residing in Selfridges, One New Change shopping centre and also Topshops’s flagship store in Oxford Circus. The ethos is no cuts, no colouring just styling, with a menu of twelve different blow drys to choose from. My favourite is the half & half, a mix between a classic blow dry and big hair with lots of bounce. The majority of styles start from £25 for a 30 minutes blow dry, but if you are rushed for time try the 15 minute blow, which takes out the wash element and is priced at £15.
