We were so excited to visit AMBA Blow Dry a couple of weekends ago, we don’t usually visit the hairdressers to have our hair styled, unless we are going to a wedding or another fancy event which only ever happens occasionally. We had our friend’s hen do so we thought it would be the perfect way to start our day.
AMBA blow dry is located in Mill Hill, it is a short walk from Mill Hill Broadway station. We drove to Mill Hill as it is only 20 minutes away from home and we were also heading to St. Albans after our appointment. Parking was really easy, I did a little bit of research before hand and found parking in a residential street about 5 minutes away from the salon.
Upon arrival we were greeted by one of the hair stylists behind reception, she took our coats and asked us to take a seat. She offered us a drink and we both asked for a cup of coffee which was served in an adorable pink cup. We waited in the waiting area admiring the flower wall and noted that it would be the perfect post hair styling Instagram photo! In fact the entire salon was very ‘instagramble’ we loved all of the pastel colours.
Our hair stylists introduced themselves and took us over to our styling seat. We both told the stylists the kind of look we were going for which was both curly of course! It was then time to get our hair washed which was so relaxing, we loved the head massage they gave us, and the moisturising treatment left our hair feeling so soft.
Then it was time for the styling to begin, as we were going for a curly look we just had our hair roughly blow dried. Annie has her hair curled with straighteners and then the hair stylist brushed them out as she was going for a beachy look. Rachel’s hair stylist curled her hair with a curling tong instead as she wanted to get ensure Rach had volume in her curls.
We both opted for a plait to be put in our hair, which at the time we LOVED but if we went back we actually think we would have left the plat out of our hair. We both look really young already and looking back at photo we feel like the plait made us look even younger (is that even possible?) this is just a personal preference though.
AMBA Blow dries are from £20 depending on the length of your hair, and for the plait it costs an additional £10. We think this is a really reasonable price especially as they do such a good job!
We had such a lovely time at Amba and felt like we were treated like Princesses, thank you so much! We are super sad we cannot visit Amba every weekend!
