When it comes to a pampering session, there are few things that will do the job better than a visit to the salon.

After a successful pop-up salon in south Kensington, The Bardou Express Blow Dry Bar have made a home in Covent Garden (right around the corner from The Lady HQ!).

Having had a bad experience with a blow dry bar before (after leaving the salon it wasn't even 30 mins before my hair was back to the way it was before the appointment), I was dubious about trying another. Thankfully I took the plunge because Bardou is my new favourite saloon.

From the moment I walked in, the retro tunes (it's like they knew I was coming!), the lights around the mirrors at each station a la old school Hollywood, and the champagne and cupcake I was given on arrival, I realised this was my kind of place.

Off to a party in a Marilyn Monroe esque dress I opted for big hair like the icon herself.

Their philosophy is first class styling with first class stylists and that was given from the off.

Daniel the salon manager was incredibly tentative and a pleasure to chat to whilst I waited for my appointment.

The stylist (stylists work on a freelance basis so you might not always be able to get the same one but they all have 15 years of experience in the hair industry so whoever you get you'll be in safe hands) was great. Not only was he chatty but he knew exactly what I wanted and ran with it; sat in front of the lit mirror I felt just a little like a star.

I couldn't have been happier with the result and positively bounded out of the salon, taking the time to catch a glimpse of myself in every shop window I passed.

For the feel good and look god factor, when it comes to blow dry bars, call of the search, we've found a winner.
