Blow dry bars might be the greatest invention ever. I remember when the Dry Bar came to town, I thought I had died and gone to heaven. There are multiple reasons that I love getting my hair blown out. Not only does my hair last for days when I get a professional to blow it out, but I can’t style it like they can. For $40, I don’t mind paying someone to do my hair since I know I’ll walk out of the salon with supermodel hair.
I recently visited the newest blow dry bar in town, blo. Blo is owned by Gwyneth Paltrow. Blo is North America’s Original Blow Dry Bar. No cuts, no color: Just WASH BLOW GO. Guests choose from 7 styles featured in the Blo Hair Menu, from the razor-straight “Executive Sweet” to the runway-inspired “Pillow Talk”. It all started in 2007 with a vital question: “Why isn’t there a place for quick, affordable catwalk-quality blow outs?” They’ve been coifing ever since. Currently, Blo has 45+ locations to serve you across North America, and the Philippines, with more than 10 more locations expected to open in the DFW metroplex!
Upon entering, you’ll notice blo has a different feel than more blow dry bars. It’s more edgy, but I like it. Decorated in grey and hot pink, uplifting sayings are on the walls throughout. One of my favorites is the ‘Hello, gorgeous’ once you walk in.
Since I love BIG Texas hair, I chose the “Holly Would” hairstyle. Let me tell you, I’ve never had curls so big in my entire life and I loved it! Not only was my hair big but it lasted 4 days. I still had curls after 4 days! The only reason it didn’t last it was because I thought maybe I should wash my hair after that long. Judge me, if you want 🙂
Here’s my before picture (conveniently taken in their bathroom). Notice my hair is naturally wavy, dirty and in need of some LOVE. My hair is not only wavy and crazy, I have tons of it. I have pity on anyone who has to blow it out because God knows they are getting an awesome arm work out!
And now for the finished product…
Now that is what I call an amazing blow out! Blo is located at Knox/75 and all of their blow outs are only $40. If you’re looking for a fun place to get pampered and leave looking like a celeb, this is your place. (I forgot to mention they serve champagne and chocolate – could this place be any better?)
