Forget a morning swim, there’s no better way to blow off the cobwebs than with a red-eye blow-dry appointment!

Whether you have an early morning interview, or you just can’t get away at lunch, whatever the reason (and there doesn’t need to be a reason, by the way), here are the Dublin salons where you can get sunrise blow-drys before 9am. You’ll be suited, booted and well-coiffed before you have your first coffee.

3. Dry & Fly Blow Dry Beauty Bar

(Mon-Fri opens 7am)

16 Merrion Row, Dublin 2

Six signature blow-drys and six up-dos to choose from, and prices starting from €18? You’d be mad not to.
