Blowouts and booze in a salon/cocktail bar? Sign us up! Blow Bar Bali is a brilliant place to get pampered, get tipsy, and have a whole lot of fun. With its talented stylists, friendly mixologists, and party atmosphere, it’s a perfect place to start your night out or just a little respite from the afternoon sun. It’s also a popular spot for large groups, hen parties, and birthdays.

Don’t expect a full cut and color service, though. Instead, this place has a menu that’s all about the finishing touches. Think conditioning treatments followed by a blow-dry and style in any way you fancy: straight and sleek, beachy waves, glam curls, crown braids, or elegant up-dos. And it’s not just hair; you can get your brows and lashes done, have a facial, or a mani-pedi, all while enjoying the DJ’s tunes and the extensive cocktail menu.

  • Wash and blow-dry around 200,000 IRD or $14.
  • Cocktails from 80,000 IRD or $6

While this is not one of Bali’s most comprehensive hair salons, it is one of the most fun, and we definitely recommend grabbing your crew (and an espresso martini) and giving it a try.
