Fast beauty doesn’t have to mean it falls short of pampering. This pop up is a parlour of hair dreams…
Pop ups don’t get much more glam than this. The Bardou promises this: wham-bam blowdries that revel in the red carpet vibe. Its current home is London’s Covent Garden, centrally located to maximise walk-ins although booking is also possible. The salon doesn’t feel temporary, in fact it's complete with all the modcons you expect from a top hair establishment, with chic hair stations and chrome, reflective surfaces. The service is slick with a smile and delivered with champagne (or cup of tea).
The Bardou, like many express salons, offers a menu of blowdries – no colour, no cuts, just a fabulous finish. Unlike many express salons, though, it ups the ante with options to add clip in extensions or to combine it with a makeup service so you leave coiffed and painted in equal measure. Expect a choice of volumised manes and Hollywood style waves, and if you desire a tweak or two, the stylists are more than happy to help.
The Bardou can also be found in Reading and will be flying to warmer climes to Marbella, Spain this year. Prices start from £20. Thebardou.com @TheBardou
