Blow dry bars are extremely popular in New York and it seems Londoners are getting in on the craze too. But at this place, you can also have your brows done, stock up on Oribe products (their Apres Beach spray) or simply chill out with a latte. With potted plants lining the shelves and spacious interiors, there are worst spots to while away the hours. It's conveniently open from 7:30am on week days and as late as 8:30 on Fridays so you can grab a pre-board meeting (or wedding) blow dry in the early hours or just before a date.
Anushka Lakhani, ex-L'oreal haircare executive and 'self-confessed blow dry addict' founded aer after living in five different countries and trying almost every single blow dry under the sun. As a result, there is no menu of different hair looks to choose from - rather each style is tailored to the individual client, so simply bring in a photo of the look you want and (your hair type and length permitting) the stylist can recreate it.
