This is a difficult post, because I’m honestly torn on how I feel about this company. But I have to be honest and I wouldn’t want to recommend you guys something for you to be potentially disappointed. Always here for honesty, guys and girls. To give you a bit of background, Blow LTD is an app that’s pretty much like Uber for beauty. You find someone close by and book them for hair, make up or nails. They pop around to your house, do it for you and leave. Simple.
To make it easier, I’m just gonna list the pros and cons. Sound cool? Cool.
Pros – it’s convenient, it’s quick, you have an option for hair, nails or make up, you can book in groups if you want to, and they can come to your home, hotel or work place.
It’s majorly convenient – if you’re in work until 5 and have a night out at 10, it’s great knowing you can book someone to pop around, sort out your hair and leave. Fab. You can also book in for a few people if you’re having a girls night in, hen do, night before your wedding, etc. And they come to your home, hotel or workplace – so getting your nails done on your lunch is actual possible.

I will admit was quite nice knowing I was in my own house, I didn’t have to make myself look fancy, I could sit and let my fake tan dry while we chatted away. It took away the pressure of blow drying my hair which is the biggest task when I’m going out.
Cons – it’s expensive, I wasn’t impressed with the quality.
Gosh, this is tough. I will state that I only had a blow dry and cannot comment on the make up or nail side, and I’ve only had it done the once, so my review doesn’t reflect the whole range of the app. But lets talk about my experience.
Okay so, I’m really protective of my hair. Real protective. It is my baby, my pride and joy. To give you an idea of how much I love my locks, I drive an almost two hour round trip to get my hair done by the lovely Adele at Trimmers in Skelmersdale. She’s a master when it comes to colouring, trimming and styling my hair and I trust her, so it’s worth the journey knowing I’ll be happy when I leave. Having someone come into my house when I don’t have anyone recommending them isn’t something I’d usually do – but I thought I’d give it a try. It should have been £40, but it was complimentary so I could test it. Now, £40 for a blow dry (I washed my own hair) is steep, in my opinion. But if the style worked out, then fair enough.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t really happy with how my hair looked. It didn’t look awful, but it wasn’t worth the £40 I would have paid. But there is obviously a time limit for these girls to get hair done and go. If I had paid the £40, I would have requested at least a partial refund.
Will I be a return customer?
The question is – would I use them again? Hmm. With a discount code, yes. Simply for the ease of it. But I wouldn’t pay full price for a blow dry when I have to wash my own hair and they’re using my electricity (blow drying is one of the main household appliances that use the most electricity). I’d definitely give their make up looks a go if I had a discount code – their bespoke make up is 60 minutes for £55, their express make up is 45 minutes for £30.
Why not give it a go yourself and see what you think?
