Blowout salon Prep now open at Mandarin Gallery

For times when you need to look perfectly coiffed quick, there’s Prep, a new and chic blowout bar at Mandarin Gallery.

Designed and conceptualized by local design collective Asylum, the hip space has a playful, cosy and relaxing vibe with the use of oak wood, soft lighting, concrete floor and fun shapes. The salon’s team of stylists are trained to do all kinds of fab styles—even for the men—but if you’re undecided, flip through Prep’s Hair Library for inspiration. Services are whimsically named after literary classics and start from $39.

Those who need a little more pampering can add on longer massages and deep conditioning treatments. Quirky novelty items like tote bags and the Bath Time Bodyguard shower caps (which help sustain your blowout for longer) are also available.
