Barbados Beauty 411: The Parlour List

It’s 3:30pm, your swanky dinner is at 7:30pm and after a day on the beach you look…a mess.

Here in New York City there wouldn’t be too much cause for concern. It’s not a stretch to find a local salon that can tighten up your hair or nails in a pinch. Last minute beauty services aren’t a luxury anymore-it’s a full scale business in any major metropolis. But when you’re on holiday, things can get a little wild unless you’ve done your homework. While Barbados has tons of resources for last minute car rentals, dinner reservations and special event access, attempting to walk into a salon for a quick blowout, twist-up or manicure may leave you feeling helpless.

So when it comes to the top spots to keep you sharp in Barbados, we did the work for you. Between Food Wine Rum’s choice events and the west coast’s chic dining outposts, be sure to grab an appointment at one of these places after you RSVP for your night out. We’ll be adding more soon, so check back!

Just a few based on our personal visits, and local picks. Have a salon to add? Leave a comment and we’ll check it out!
