Only a true professional can turn any lifeless mop into a full-bodied, Beyoncé-esque mane.
Let’s face it, blow drying your own hair at home never looks as good as getting it done at the salon. So leave it to the professionals and get those locks looking fab. We’ve scoured around Brisbane to bring you the city’s best blowouts.
