Roller Blow Bar: Seriously Addictive, You Have Been Warned

Roller Blow Dry Bar Dublin Review

It’s silly season, I’m frazzled, somebody* has spent all of my gift money on doggy clothes, lattes and taxicabs and I’ve had a sinus infection for the best part of a month. And yet, there have been days where I have felt invincible, unstoppable and on top of the world. And those days have one thing in common: a visit to Roller Blow Bar.

Meet your newest obsession, says the website, and at least they give you fair warning: this place is seriously addictive. From the décor (luxe, calming, contemporary and blue) to the location (right across the river from my office), Roller has occupied a special place in my heart since the first time they invited me in for a visit. I’ve already been back, and I’ve booked in for my Christmas party…

In the heart of the ‘Silicon Docks’ and geared towards busy professionals, the people at Roller really understand the power of the blow dry (and it's very real power; witness the twitter exchange below with the lovely Katie and Caoimhe!).

Offering nine signature styles which you can check out on their website  (I’m rocking The Bounce and The Braid-back and Cool, below),  you’re in and out with the minimum of fuss and it’s all just a lovely, relaxed but efficient experience.

No matter how bad a day you’ve been having, once you’re seated in a Phillipe Starck chair, perusing the blow dry menu on your individual iPad and sipping on a very decent coffee, all seems well with the world. They open early and close late – 7am to 7pm most days – and a blow dry is €30. I’m developing quite the habit…

*I admit there’s a slight possibility that this person was me.
