The more we practise self-care, the more confident, creative, and productive we are! Indulging in activities and pastimes that you enjoy is an act of self-care. For some, self-care can be internal, finding moments of quiet or peace, sinking into a flower bath or doing an hour of meditation. For others, self-care is about looking your best so that you feel at your best as well, and that’s what these hotspots are all about, making you look your best! These hair spas, nail spas and beauticians are the island’s self-care experts.
If you’re in the mood for a manicure with a martini on the side, or vice versa, there’s one spa meets speakeasy in Seminyak that you have to head to. With a hidden entrance down a small side-street, or accessed through the Bamboo Blonde boutique, Blow Bar is an alternative bar that serves up blow-drys as much as it serves bubbling Bellinis. The focus here goes beyond just the typical voluminous blowouts and fresh highlights, what Blow Bar offers is a social experience. Imagine sitting next to your girls, as the stylist whips up your next glamorous look and the bartender shakes up a tropical cocktail. From a preppy up-style to beachy waves, the hair salon has a team of professional stylists to give you a million dollar look for a refreshing new style or night out on the town. Blow Bar isn’t exclusive to ladies, blokes can enjoy a Bro Dry, trim with a beer, or a Scotch & Shave, and other treatments on offer. Spread over a spacious urban warehouse, the bar offers a range of designer drinks, old school favourites, beers, wines, Champagnes, and light bar snacks. They have a dedicated Manicure and Pedicure Boudoir that seats six guests in crescent-shaped booths offering the latest in SNS Nail Treatments, Gel and Chrome Mirror Nail systems. Blow Bar opens daily from 10 AM to 11 PM.
