Why I book a blowout ev­ery time I travel for work.

When­ever I go away on busi­ness, I try to head to a sa­lon the day I arrive. Here’s why my habit is more that just a sham­poo splurge: 1. It makes sense to spend two hours tak­ing it easy while I’m still ad­just­ing to the time zone. 2. A good blowout saves me from spend­ing an hour each day strug­gling with an­ti­quated ho­tel hair dry­ers or call­ing the front desk to see if the plug adapter I need is still (still!) in use. 3. I save pre­cious space in my lug­gage by for­go­ing hair prod­ucts (all I have to pack to keep a blow-dry go­ing strong for a four-day trip is dry sham­poo), and a lighter bag means fewer fos­sil fuels wasted. (Granted, this might not make a huge dif­fer­ence, but ev­ery lit­tle bit counts, right?) 4. Fi­nally, I get to talk to locals at the sa­lon and gather in­sider tips about what I need to see in the city dur­ing the rest of my stay—should any of my newly-freed-up time not be taken up by, you know, work. Here are three of my favourite global blowout stops:
