The World’s Best Airport Salons

Cabin pressure and altitude are not kind on our skin and hair whilst travelling, meaning we arrive feeling dull and lifeless. If you’re meeting someone special on arrival or particularly if you’re on the move for business you’ll want to arrive feeling and looking fresh. There are a number of salons opening in some of the busiest and most-popular airports worldwide. You can take advantage of these at either pre-take off or during connections and delays.

Bradley Smith Hair – London Heathrow Airport

The UK’s first airport hair salon has arrived at Heathrow’s Terminal 5 by celebrity hairdresser and stylist; Bradley Smith. Having worked with Lady Forsyth and R&B artist Craig David, Bradley has created an innovative service of 15-minute blow dries. This new trend of speedy styling comes after he won a three-year contract against other high-end competitors, accommodating for those who want to depart and arrive in and out of the city fresh and business ready.
