The BEST Blow Dry In New York With Aveda

Looking for the hippest hair salon in NYC?! I got it covered! - Words by Hayley / Pictures by Kat...


Spoke & Weal: 147 Grand St. / Lafayette & Crosby, New York, NY 10013

During a recent trip to NYC myself and Kat were treated to the most wonderful blow dry by the lovely Aveda team at the Spoke & Weal salon in Soho. We'd spent the morning wandering Soho (great location for shopping FYI so be sure to check it out if you're heading to the big apple!), then we headed towards the salon we is situated between Lafayette & Crosby - a great location which is super easy to find!

When we first entered the salon I was blow away by how stunning (and uber cool) it was! It had a very New York warehouse kind of vibe and the hairdryers on the ceiling was a great touch! After having a browse of the Aveda products (I adore their Smooth Infusion range for hair, and their Stress Fix body range is also incredible!), we met with our stylists; I had the lovely Erika doing my hair, we were chatting away about our favourite UK brands and was so proud of my babe Sarah when Erika was telling me how much she loved her Missguided collection (gurrrrrrrl got good taste!). 

Erika gave me the most amazing head massage to start with, rubbing some oils into my hair before washing and conditioning it. Then we started on the fun part; the blow dry! I asked for some natural/beachy waves because that's my go-to jam and I loved how Erika styled my hair, it was all loose and tousled and I woke up like this (even though LOLZ I definitely didn't!!). I was so happy with the final result and my hair managed to hold the style even with the NYC heat & humidity which I was super pleased with! I adored the salon decor, the staff and of course the best blow dry! I already can't wait to return!
