I stopped in Duck & Dry, the brand new swanky boutique up-do and blow dry bar in London to try out their new salon. I was greeted by the most beautiful and attentive staff, as I sat down at the bar to enjoy an ice cold glass of Prosecco while I waited my turn.

My hair is huge. Unmanageably thick, long and quite messy at the best of times, and I was very interested to see if the guys at Duck & Dry could do anything with it. I’ve had hair stylists try before, and fail miserably!

I was seen by Natalia, a super-friendly Brazilian lady who put me at ease straight away. I decided to try a fishtail plait – I’ve seen loads of cool looking ones on Pinterest and I wanted to know if one would work in my hair.

I was amazed. In under 5 minutes flat, Natalia had worked her magic, and created the coolest fishtail plait, that crept over my shoulder and down my front. So cool! What’s more, Snowden, the Creative Director, promised he’d teach me how to do it if I pop in again.

Definitely my favourite place on the King’s Road!
