There She Blows! – The Style Bar
Launching this month, Exposed gets the lowdown on hot new hair salon with a difference -The Stylebar!
A heady dose of Hollywood glamour makes its sparkly self at home in Sheffield this month – and you can bet your baubles the Champagne corks will be popping. Based on Ecclesall Road South, The Stylebar is unlike anything to hit the city style scene. Ever.
Luxury and decadence is the name of the game here – a place where punters can lose themselves within a world of bubbles and cocktails as their tresses are tenderly tended to. You may think you’ve heard it all before. You haven’t. See, with The Stylebar comes a city first – The Blow-out Bar. Unique (and sinfully glamorous), it’s the first dedicated blow dry bar in Sheffield.
Those in the know will be well familiar with the huge success of the concept in America and London. Those not so familiar, well, you’re in for one heck of a treat. It works thus: browse the blow out and drinks menu, pick your poison and style (everything from ‘The Bardot’ through to ‘The Mademoiselle’ and ‘Rock And Roll’ is on offer), then leave the team to work their magic as you make the most of your unique, stunning surroundings (think complimentary iPads, current music and chick flicks on the plasma screens).
It’s red carpet glamour all the way – and the perfect start to any evening out or special event.
“We created The Stylebar because, quite frankly, we were bored with the same old generic salons that kept popping up and offering nothing more than an average service,” says Dan Hatfield, who runs the business with sister Cherise. “We wanted to do something different – to create a deluxe and relaxing environment where you can celebrate just how fabulous you are.”
And, it’s fair to say, they’ve done just that. As much a cool watering hole hangout as it is a salon, The Stylebar will stay open Friday and Saturday nights until the last customer wants to leave (so we imagine there’ll be a fair few late ones) – essentially offering the ultimate girls night out.
“During the weekend evenings we want to create a place where girls can come with their friends, start their evening off with a few drinks, and have their hair perfectly styled. We want them to look, and feel, amazing – and have a whole load of fun in the process!”
What’s more, all this glamour is affordable – just £20 for the full experience plus a free drink of your choice. Bonkers.
“We’ve carefully put together a team who are guaranteed to offer you the best service in the city. Creativity and the pursuit for perfection mean that we want to deliver more than good, or even excellent, we want to be the number one choice for the style conscious – the only place to go for cuts, colours, blow drys and more.”
So, if second best simply isn’t an option, you know the score. Oh, and don’t lose any sleep about upsetting your regular hairdresser – blow-outs don’t count as cheating. Honest.
