First time at Blushbar? Questions? No problem.
Do you charge extra for curling/tonging/straightening?
No. All of our styles are "full service" which means, wash, blow dry and style for a flat-fee of £25.00. Our creative updo styles are charged at £35.00. That's the only variation to our price list. We believe in being entirely transparent with our pricing.
I have hair extensions, will this be extra?
Yes, our stylists need to take extra care drying around your bonds, which takes longer appointment times, these appointments are £30.00 each. If you wish to bring your own (clip-in) hair extensions into the salon, they must be human hair and we charge £10 for the application of these, as they have to be styled separately to you.
What product range do you use?
A range we are proud to carry, direct from Italy called Davines. We simply love their ethos; sustainable beauty. Every product has naturally derived ingredients and we can't keep the shampoo & conditioner sets on the shelves - our ladies love them. There's nothing in any of the products that will harm any hair, only nourish it. That's why we chose it. 100% Cruelty free and only four products are not suitable for Vegans.
How can I book an appointment?
Our online booking system is the easiest way. Or you can call the salon during our normal opening hours (Tuesday-Saturday) on 01702 470535.
Can I have a party at Blushbar?
We love a party. We can accommodate up to 4 people at a time, while the other group are treated to drinks and nibbles that you're welcome to provide. Contact us for rates.
I'm going out in the evening but coming to you in the morning, will my hair hold?
It's impossible for us to say, hair obviously varies from person to person and while we can take steps to ensure your hair doesn't drop, we ask that you're sensible and book an appointment towards the end of the day if you're going out in the evening. Alternatively tell your stylist and we can send you out with your curls pinned up, ready for you to take down for your event in the evening.
How long will my appointment last?
We schedule 45 minutes per person, however, if you have extra long or extra thick hair, expect to be with us for around 75 minutes.
I'm coming for an updo. Do I need to wash my hair first?
Yes please! It's easier to work with hair that has a bit of grit (read: dirt) in it, to help hold the style better, rather than squeaky clean hair. But, we have products that can simulate that grit, easily, so if you would prefer us to wash it first, please let us know so we can allocate extra time for you.
I'm coming for a Bridal/Prom trial. What's included in my trial?
We can only complete one full hair style per hour, if you would like your stylist to try alternative styles on you, please book back-to-back trial appointments .
Are your stylists trained hairdressers?
Absolutely. Only the best too. We get applications for jobs at Blushbar, daily - so we can afford to pick the very best stylists, and not juniors at that. We pick stylists for their friendly attitude, great hair and can-do nature.
Are you a chain or franchise?
No. A big fat no. We're independently owned by locally-born Sarah Parmenter.
Can I bring accessories to have pinned into my hair?
Absolutely. Our stylists will be happy to help you with this. Fascinators, clips, pins. You name it.
For an express appointment, what do I need to do?
We can only complete express appointments on clean, bone-dry hair. An express appointment includes straightening, curling or waving services only. If you require plaits, or half-up-half-down pinning of any kind, this must be added to the appointment as extra time needs to be allocated that turns it into a full 45 minute appointment.
