Duck & Dry: Adding Glamour to London's Salon Scene

The Ultimate Luxury Salon

In recent years, London has seen an explosion in the beauty industry, with new salons popping up across the city every month. Only one salon has captured my attention as a destination for luxury, self-pampering, premium expertise, undeniable quality of service, good fun, and value – something that not all salons can balance in one.

 Duck & Dry is a unique hair salon that stands out from the rest and has caught the attention of numerous Londoners. The salon group has four locations across London, including one on the King’s Road that I visited on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. The salon was launched in 2014, and it quickly gained recognition for its one-of-a-kind concept. Duck & Dry has created an elegant, glamorous atmosphere that sets it apart from its competitors. Its novel concept, exceptional services, and a charming environment make it a must-visit place for all those who seek a more luxurious hair experience.

Upon entering the salon, I was warmly welcomed by Elle at the front desk in the bright, vibrant salon space. The decor is chic and Insta-worthy, with blush pink accents contrasted with funky pop art on the walls. The sleek marble countertops and gold finishes give the salon an undeniable air of sophistication. The Duck & Dry team helped me choose what cocktail, prosecco or alcohol-free drink, to sip on while getting my hair washed and styled.

 

 

The Duck & Dry Experience

The salon follows a unique system, as you have a dedicated stylist who does your wash, blow-dry, and style all in one. The system not only saves time but ensures that your hair is being treated and styled by one professional stylist rather than multiple people. The staff were knowledgeable and approachable, with Elle, my lovely stylist taking the time to understand my hair concerns before giving expert advice on which style to choose. She demonstrated creativity and skill in creating a sleek, chic blow-out that lasted all evening.

While my blow-dry experience provided a great experience, the overall atmosphere of the salon was what elevated Duck & Dry above the rest. The King Road’s venue has ample space and is designed so aesthetically, allowing you to spend time browsing through magazines while sipping on a cocktail. During my visit, several girls had booked in their appointments as groups of friends having a girl’s-day-out, and getting pampered before beginning their evening plans. It felt as though we were all young, vibrant, and full of excitement, in our self-pampering haven with an awesome playlist, cheerful and friendly staff, drinks to hand, and an energy of relaxation and fun.

 

Services

Aside from their exceptional blow-drying and hairstyling services, Duck & Dry offers a range of additional services. If you’re preparing for your special day, the salon’s bridal packages have everything you need to look your best on your wedding day. Their talented hairstylists can create any style you envision, from a sophisticated updo to beachy waves. The salon also offers makeup services perfect for a wedding, a party, or any special occasion.

Their nail technicians are skilled in creating the trendiest nail art and providing expert nail care. With their extensive range of services, Duck & Dry is your one-stop salon for all your beauty needs.

 Not only have Duck & Dry’s services been a hit with its customers, but you’re likely to have heard about them all over the press and TV, including shows like Made in Chelsea, and publications such as The Times, The Telegraph, and Harper’s Bazaar. The salon group has won numerous accolades, including ‘London’s Coolest Salon’ by Culture Trip, ‘Ultimate Beauty Destination’ by Time Out London, and the ‘Best Bridal Hairstylist’ by Wedding Industry Awards

Relax, Unwind, Pamper

As a regular customer of Duck & Dry, I can wholeheartedly say that the salon lives up to its hype. The moment I walk in, I am warmly welcomed by the staff who offer me a complimentary glass of Prosecco, magazine, or an iPad to keep me entertained.

The personalised experience is what sets Duck & Dry apart. Each client is assigned a dedicated stylist who takes the time to understand exactly what the client wants.

The exceptional blow-drying techniques are the salon’s highlight. I often opt for sleek and sophisticated looks, and the stylists always deliver. I’ve also tried the natural-looking beachy hair and voluminous wavy look on different occasions and was extremely pleased with the results. The stylists are incredibly talented and provide excellent service. The stylists have a friendly and bubbly attitude and are always ready to help and make recommendations. The exceptional customer service sets the salon apart from many others I’ve visited.

 Duck & Dry is a hair salon like few others. Its unique concept, top-notch services, and welcoming ambience set it apart from anywhere else I would choose to visit and entrust my hair health to. From the moment I walk in, I feel pampered and taken care of.  The salon’s focus on a one-on-one method for each stylist ensures your experience is customized to fit your individual hair needs. Amid busy London, these attributes offer an opportunity for relaxation and self-care, captured beautifully with the welcoming girls’ day attitude of the clientele present. It’s no surprise that it has taken London by storm since its launch in 2014. London’s blow-dry scene will never be the same!
