It’s not often we head down to Chelsea. In fact my visits are pretty much limited to fly-bys en route to Heathrow. So we felt a bit fancy and even foreign when going west recently to check out Duck and Dry – a new blow-dry bar on the King’s Road. Specialising in speedy blow-outs and updos, we really like how this upbeat hair emporium keeps it simple, focusing on the two things they are good at. When it comes to those two things, you can choose from 16 different styles and enjoy a nice coffee or prosecco as they go to work on your barnet. Group visits are encouraged; it’s a sweet little indulgence before a night on the tiles. Clubby music energises the bright space and the stylists bounce along to the beats while glamming you up. Prices are reasonable and the service is speedy. Book up.
