Top blow dry salons in Aberdeen

Visiting Aberdeen for the first time? Maybe you’re a regular to the city in need of some inspiration. Let the team at Skene House guide you through what to do, where to go and how to make the most of your time in Aberdeen. Between all 170 employees at Skene House HotelSuites we can safely say we’ve tried and tested almost everything that Aberdeen has to offer and we love to keep up-to-date with new openings and share them with our guests.

This week on the blog we’re bringing you our round-up of where to get the best salon blow drys in Aberdeen. This is something we often get asked from guests visiting on business, for interviews, graduations, weddings, date nights or just for a great night out on the town.

So listen up ladies, here are our top picks….

Moments from Skene House Rosemount is James Dunn’s House, a stylish Aveda lifestyle salon where a heavenly Aveda Sensory Journey accompanies every appointment; after a thorough consultation, you will receive a stress-relieving head and shoulder massage using natural essential oils, leaving you feeling completely relaxed. Whether you’re looking for big and bouncy hair or straight and sleek, I’ve tried and tested both and rest assured the team here are true professionals in their art.

……Or simply make the most of your suite, Skene House has received many TripAdvisor comments on how spacious and bright some of the bathrooms are, perfect for prepping for that big night out. High powered portable hairdryers and GHD straightening irons are also available at reception (on refundable loan), perfect for a girls night out allowing you all to do your hair in front of X-Factor and enjoy a glass of wine together at the same time. Forgotten to pack your hair styling products? Don’t worry, our concierge team are more than happy to source your favorite items for you.

Next on our list is the recently opened Linton and Mac salon. A short taxi ride from any of the Skene House properties to the Netherkirkgate area of the city, you will find this fashion forward hair salon complete with an eight column styling bar and interiors inspired from the likes of London or New York. I particular like being able to chose from the ready-made style book and knowing exactly what I’ll get for £25 in 30 minutes. Perfect for those who lack both time and inspiration! Problem is I want to go back and try them all.

Another short taxi ride from any Skene House property is Purdey’s in The Green. The new Purdey Blow Dry Bar has gained a solid reputation for producing some of the best Beehives and Boho looks in town!  If you’re not content with a one-off blow-dry, Purdey offer the permanent blow-dry so you can be sure your hair looks its best for any occasion day after day.
