Looking for the perfect blowdry? Be sure to consult these talented hairstylists

Certain things in life cry out for the assistance of a superbly capable professional, and acquiring a bouncy, polished blow-out is one of them. But not all hairstylists are created equal and, while some can work magic on our locks, others can leave them looking a little lacklustre. After numerous requests for advice on the best of hairstylists, we’ve decided to consult our beauty black book and confidentially let slip the names we trust to give us a heads up.

Our secret? We’ve long relied on the stylists at Servilles to help us achieve the ultimate bounce in our hair, and our step. Not only do they each have a way with hair that can only be described as masterly, but the service is impeccable and we always come away feeling especially good about ourselves. For blow-outs specifically, there are some particular names that are we recommend. If you’re near Newmarket, we suggest you call on Campbell Gordon, while in Takapuna, Pedja Rilak is the name you should be requesting. Searching for someone in Ponsonby? Be sure to ask for Lance Aniofo, whose ability to work a hairdryer is second to none.
