There's a great value offer in House of Colour Hair Salons. Mondays to Thursdays a wash and blow dry is €15, and Thursdays they are open until 8pm so you could pop in before you head out for a meal/drink/show etc.
I called in yesterday to the salon on Wellington Quay and was very impressed with the friendliness and the service. A tea or coffee is usually complimentary but House of Colour's menu lists,wait for it, complimentary white or rose wine along with several other hot drinks. They'll even pop out to a local sandwich bar to bring in a snack for very reasonable prices.
The staff very friendly, introducing themselves and explaining what they will be doing. The head massage that followed my first wash was heavenly. Ricky attended to the blow-dry and was very pleasant to chat to.
On leaving I was handed a gift card for a reduced price blowdry (€15 anytime up to April 21st), shampoo cut and blowdry (€26) and a partial meche and cut (€65-an excellent price).
We hear too much about how pricey everything is so here's a great value salon and while some of the things I've mentioned such as friendliness etc are things that should be expected, there are some salons that can be quite intimidating so it's always good to know about good value, friendly establishments.
