Seeing the trend for the blow dry bar sweeping across London, salon owner Nargas Harrison saw a gap in the market in hometown of Leeds and set her business, Yorkshire Blow Dry in December 2015. ‘My daughter and I came across a blow dry bar in Covent Garden, they have Blow Dry Bars everywhere in London and I felt there was a market for this in Leeds, I came home and discussed this with my husband and others in the hairdressing industry and got the ball rolling. My background is fashion so this has been a learning curve for me.
I wanted Yorkshire Blow Dry to be a warm, friendly environment where clients could feel relaxed and at ease from the minute they walked in the door.’
Taking inspiration from industrial interiors with a chic colour scheme of grey and lack with oak accents, the interior takes centre stage, ‘We are always complimented on the interior of the salon and it’s something we are very proud of.’
The salon was kept open plan to create an exciting atmosphere, encouraging passers by to come in and get involved.
