What are amongst the best things in the world? Netflix, cocktails and amazing hair, am I right?! Of course, there are loads of other great things in life. I think baking and cats are some others. Talking about baking, I have been working on my Christmas content and I can’t wait to show you what I have been up to! Talking about Netflix, have you watched Elite? It’s like a Spanish version of Gossip Girl. So, so good, I love it! Back to the point…
Yesterday, Ana and I had a day of photoshoot scheduled in Mayfair, which ended with a super fun experience at Blade Soho in well… it’s in the name… Soho! Blade Soho is the solution to a the long-awaited end to awkward and intimidating hairdressing experiences. More than often, we see going for a hair cut as a chore where we are forced to be sociable. Some people are fine with that, some others are not the talkative type. Nothing wrong with that.
Now you can either let your sociable and talkative self share your life while having your hair done and enjoying some cocktails at the same time (or non alcoholic hot drinks) or… still enjoy some booze, headphones on while binge-watching Netflix! Your choice! Each hair station has its own iPad so entertainment is guaranteed!
Upon arrival, we handed over our bags and coats for storage then headed downstairs where the cocktail bar is and where we got our hair washed. The cocktail menu changes as seasons go and we got to taste its latest addition, a cocktail called cherry kiss. My first cocktail was prosecco and pink gin based, while my second was a Cosmo. You can never go wrong with Cosmos. After the hair wash, we each received a head massage – which was divine, it felt so good – and headed up upstairs for the blow dry.
While the hair stylist was doing wonders with my shapeless flat hair, I was catching up with the first episode of Riversale series 3 and sipping my second cocktail. The show is getting darker and darker, isn’t it? I don’t do my hair often nor do I use a hair dryer. My hair is rather flat usually and when I wash it, I let it dry while commuting to work. I’ve got a few curls behind my ears but my hair is mostly straight so I went for curls that day! The perfect hairstyle to carry on with our photoshoot!
I had such a nice experience at Blade Soho! The staff was lovely, so warm and welcoming. Their concept is based on the principle of turning what you see as a chore into something enjoyable. You want to chat, you chat. You don’t want to, that’s fine to! The cocktails were amazing! A piece of advice, make sure you’ve eaten before though! Last but not least… you can bring in your dog as the salon has special arrangement for them! How amazing is that?!

What do you think of Blade Soho? Have you ever heard of the place? Liking the idea of a hair salon that is also a bar? Would you go? Bring your doggo if you do!
Thanks a lot for stopping by! Hope you liked this post!
See you soon,
*I was given this experience in exchange for this post but all thoughts are my own and are not affected by complimentary services.
My gosh this looks amazing! I’ve had a home hairdresser for years so I almost forgot what the salon experience was like but this seems extra special. Would love to go to a place like this for a pamper! I’d love to bring my little doggy too hehe.
Corinne, this looks like such a great experience! Who doesn’t want to get cocktails and watch shows while getting their hair done. All they need to do now is cater to cats! Hehe! Btw I love your little yellow dress.
Never even heard of a place like this and i already wanna go! I couldn’t dream of anything better than having cocktails and my hair cut at the same time!!
This sounds absolutely amazing!! I hate having my hair done usually. I find it so awkward. But cocktails and an iPad included? Sounds like perfection. x
This is such a good idea, and for me, getting my hair done is such a chore! (And whats not to love when booze is involved eh?)
This looks like so much fun! I would love it – my hair is thick and curly and takes about 4 hours to do when I have a cut and colour. I would love to be able to watch Netflix haha!

This sounds like such a great experience, some gorgeous outfits too! Can’t beat a bit of Netflix can you, I was very tempted to try Elite so perhaps I will!x
It’s great that you got to experience Blade Soho! It’s great that you get to do so much while getting your hair done. Oh man, this place sounds amazing! I know I’d have a blast if I get to sip on a cocktail, hehe. Glad you enjoyed your experience!

Elite is amazing, I’m loving it!
I think this is an EXCELLENT idea for a salon. I’m not much of a talker so this is right up my street. I’d love to catch up on Netflix while getting my hair done.

This looks amazing! I don’t go to salon very often so I forgot how it feels like! I probably should, though!
we have a few simular places over here where I live in Australia but boy do I ‘pay’ the extra for teh experience! …. in saying that as a busy mum its nice to go and relax for a couple of hours getting my hair done 🙂
I have never heard of a place like this before. Mybe I should check in my area and see if there is one? I would love to visit and get pampered
I’ve never even heard of Blade Soho before now and I’m already in love! The hair salon and bar hybrid sounds like such an unbelievably cool experience and I would love to try it out for myself! You’ve also reminded me that I need to catch up on the newest episode of Riverdale! xx
Wow looks like such a great experience, will defo check them out! Always a good idea to treat yourself! Also, I’m intrigued about Elite, will also have to look into that!

I’ve never heard of this place before but that looks so fun! I can image going there to get your hair done before a night out. What batter than a drink and Netflix, I’ve also been loving Riverdale can’t wait for the next episode, grest post also love that dress xx
Okay, WOW! This is amazing! What a unique thing, to have an iPad for people to use if they’d rather just switch off whilst having their hair done. A lot of people can find getting their hair done really anxiety provoking – including me – so this option would go down really well with me because I hate small talk, it makes me uncomfortable. You look absolutely gorgeous in these photo Corinne!
I have never heard of this concept before of a hair salon / bar, that’s so unique and sounds very interesting! Also, love your outfit!
AWESOME!! Looks like a great place to go, and you look gorgeous! Great post!! Thanks for the smile!
This sounds like an amazing experience! I usually feel so anxious about getting my hair done and all that chit chat that comes too. Watching Netflix and having a few drinks sounds like luxury! Thanks for sharing Corinne, I love your pretty dress too! <3 xx

Sounds like such a great experience. I haven’t got stuff done in months. It reminded me that I gotta pamper my hairs too.
It looks amazing. Though I have never heard about it earlier. But your excitement says all.
You look amazing, I have never heard of a place like this but I sure wish to find one close by. I need something like this right about now., your dress is amazing too.
I would love to get my hair done here. What a great place. I need one of these closer to me. I love your outfit by the way!
I would love a drink when I get my hair done. This is my kind of hair place to visit.
Wow, what an amazing idea for a hair salon. Much as I love my hairdresser and her colleague, sometimes I don’t really want to chat but it always feels a little rude to not engage. I tend to get my hair done after I’ve dropped Flora off at school so cocktails at 9.15am wouldn’t work for me (!) but Netflix definitely would 🙂 x

I have never heard of a place like this. I definitely want to go Corinne. Thanks for sharing.
I like how you ca also watch some movie from Netflix while waiting for your hair to be done. I usually dislike the waits so be able to watch a movie while fixing your hair is cool and enjoyable.
I did not hear about Blade Soho. It looks like great fun. Thanks for sharing.
I have never heard of a place like this before, but I love the concept! Seems like a great way to spend the day with my bestfriends!
Oh amazing! I find getting my hair done so boring. And if I had a bit of dutch courage I might actually say something if I didn’t like it.
Wow! Love your hair. This place looks perfect for chilling and relax 🙂
Omg what a genius idea! Hair appointments can be so long, but having a nice cocktail and netflix would make it so much more enjoyable for me.
Lovely dress your wearing and your hair looks great on you. Also loves the netflix and cocktail it seems very fun experience
This is such a cool and neat concept. I really like the idea of a bar in a hair salon. I’ll go for the cappuccino and matcha!
Ohh, why am I not updated about this. I must confess, I have never heard of a place like this and who would not want to experience it? I already wanna go! Multitasking: having cocktails while your having a hair cut at the same time!!
I remember seeing this on Ana’s instagram. I have never been to one of these blowdry bars, but I have always wanted to try it! It sounds awesome!
Looks like you had a great time. Will definitely going to check out this. And I love the idea.
Really effective, amazing and useful article.Thanks for sharing this knowledgeable article.
