The intu Watford Shopping Centre is finally starting to unveil the brand new extension, with Debenhams and Jack Wills opening recently and lots more to come in the next few months! I was invited to go along and try out the new Blow Ltd Beauty Bar at Debenhams Watford.
The Blow Ltd Beauty Bar is at the far end of the Debenhams Beauty Hall at the intu Watford Shopping Centre. You can book your appointment through the Blow Ltd App or book in the store (walk-in appointments are also welcome if there is a space available). The Blow Ltd concept is simple, you choose your look from a menu and then your stylist works their magic. I never manage to achieve a beautiful curly blow dry at home – I don’t have the skills, or the ability to blow dry my hair whilst making breakfast for small people, helping with homework etc… so I opted for the Luxe Blow which promises volume and curls.
First my hair was washed and treated to a Kerastase Gloss Shot, to make my hair extra shiny. The Blow Ltd concept offers fast beauty treatments but there was no skimping – the Kerastase products smell amazing, my head massage was bliss and the salon is sleek, bright and brand-spanking new!
Then it was straight to the Blow Dry Bar. My lovely stylist Grace expertly dried, pinned and sprayed my hair. The treatments are supposed to be fast but it didn’t feel rushed and I was blown away by the result. My hair was transformed with soft and beautiful curls. It turns out that if I had time to spend blow drying my hair every morning then it could look vaguely presentable – possibly even a bit gorgeous?
My glossy curls lasted a few hours but my fine and flat hair needed some attention and a good dose of hair spray to last the whole day, however, it was a relaxing and pampering experience that was quick, easy and fitted into a busy day and I would love to do it all again. A blow dry at Blow Ltd could be quite addictive, next time I think I might try their ‘Starlet Waves’ look and make sure I have somewhere to go to show it off properly!
Blow Ltd don’t just do blow drys and up-dos, they also do braids, nails, LVL lashes and make-up too. It’s a quick and easy one-stop for a range of treatments.
Then it was time for a wander around the new Debenhams store in Watford. Next visit I’ll hopefully have more time to sample some of the delicious food at Loaf & Bloom and make time to try on some of the stunning dresses from Studio by Preen. The childrenswear department is huge and I spied some gorgeous onesies and pyjamas in the Bluezoo collection.
If you haven’t been to intu Watford for a while, then it’s worth re-visiting now. New stores and restaurants will be opening their doors in the coming months, along with a brand new cinema complex and bowling alley… and it’s all under one roof.
