I visited a beautiful new makeup and hair styling bar in Barangaroo, Sydney called Blown Lux. Less than a month old, it’s clear this luxury beauty salon is going to be a hit. I am always looking out for things that make my life easier and this was no exception. Having someone else styling you takes all the stress out of getting ready and just makes it fun!
After walking past and seeing the stunning marble fit-out, I got some girlfriends together and booked in to get our hair styled. The brand-new Blown Lux Bar Barangaroo looks more like a bar than a hair salon – and that’s a good thing. Starting from the sleek marble benches, your eyes are drawn to the fridges filled with champagne. The mirrors are scattered amongst the bubbly and hanging greenery, there are hardly any hair tools in site. This is not your average blog dry bar, and you would not just come here for the hair services. It’s funky, fun and fabulous with music and champagne flowing, especially on a Friday!
All staff there were not only qualified in beauty, but also in the art of pouring drinks and, of course – having fun! Serving everything from up-do’s to cheese boards, nail polish and makeup services Blown Lux Bar offers everything to get you glammed up.
I had already washed my hair and was after some stylish curls for our night out. Keri my stylist got the brief right away, she popped some dry shampoo in, smoothed it out with a hair dryer before working her magic with the curling wand. Half and hour and two champagnes later I had bouncy curls that lasted all night.
It was totally worth the $45 I paid plus my share in the champagne. My friends had the $55 wash & blow dry and got exactly what they wanted, we all felt like they really catered to every individual’s needs – hence why I had to post about this fab new bar. It’s totally lux but also affordable.

So, if you’re like me with little time on your hands for yourself, keep this place in mind! I am always looking out for things that make my life easier and this was no exception. Having someone else styling you takes all the stress out of getting ready and just makes it fun!
Jules said mornings were really busy for the ladies working in the area who needed a quick blow-dry after the gym or have their hair done for the work week, at any time of the day, a blow-dry is always going to make you feel fresh and beautiful.
Thanks again to Jules, the manager, who was so welcoming, fun, attentive and performed a killer blow dry in no time.
It was the perfect way to start our weekend.

Update: I returned a week later for their launch party and it was a heap of fun, makeup station was on, curling tongs hot and the drinks were flowing. Having my hair done there again, this time with compliments just cemented my admiration for such an awesome idea.
