How do I book a blow dry in French?

Any french speakers that can help me with a strange request?!

I am trying to book a blowdry in a salon in Switzerland and I am doing it via email. I have some french, but it is pretty basic. I am just trying to find out what time they are open on a saturday and then book a blowdry for a saturday afternoon. Does this look miles off?

'Quelle heure le salon est ouvert samedi ? Je voudrais réserver un coup sec.'

or should it be 'reserver un brushing'?

TIA

' Je voudrais réserver un brushing. Entre quelles heures est le salon ouvert le samedi, s'il vous plait?' Should work if you just want a blow-dry, not a cut.

ahem

it is always worth trying

"I WANT TO BOOK A BLOW DRY .. A BLOW DRY DO YOU UNDERSTAND? A BLOW DRY "

It is via email though, so the traditional British approach of shouting loudly and miming just will not cut it!

I have done it though - got an email back confirming 'un brushing' for 1600 on samedi.

Job done - thanks all.
