Last week, I visited the The Blowout Bar that recently opened it doors in Grandview. What is a blowout, you might ask? It is a place where you can get your hair styled in about an hour! (no color or cuts here!) The blowout includes a shampoo and scalp massage too! They offer 5 styles to choose from:
As you enter the salon, you are greeted by the receptionist and then your stylist (mine was Erica) asks which style you would like to choose. Since my hair is naturally curly and I don’t blow dry or flat iron my hair at home, I decided I would go with “The Neat, Please-sleek, smooth and straight.” Erica then took me back to the shampoo station where I got my hair shampooed and received a scalp massage. (Doesn’t a scalp massage put you to sleep too?) Afterwards, Erica took me back to the style chair and removed my towel so she could brush/comb my wet hair! Then, the receptionist asked if I wanted some champagne or wine…ah, yes, wine of course! I was then handed a list of other services that they offered such as little kids blowouts, up do’s and monthly packages. I noticed at the bottom of the page that they had a Pinterest page and decided to take a look at it via my smartphone. I noticed on the page that there was pictures associated with the descriptions of the hair styles: i.e. “The Bahama Mama” and pictures of several stars with their hair with the “messy, beachy waves.” Erica noticed that I was scrolling through the photos and asked me if I wanted to change my hair style. I said yes and I decided to go with “The Bahama Mama.”
After blow drying and adding some curls, it was time to unveil the final look! Voila! What do you think???
I love the style/look of this place; the clean white lines and the open layout. Also, the style chairs are right next to one another so you can chat with your friend. (or friends!) The Blowout Bar offers bridal, birthday, girls night out parties, etc. too. Erica told me that many women come in on a Thursday to get a blowout so that they can keep their hair style for the weekend. Kristin (one of the owners) showed me around the place and they also offer a make-up station (this is open on the weekends) where you can also get your make-up done after your blowout! (Or you can bring your own make-up too!) I think this is great service especially for us busy moms who are trying to get ready for holiday parties or who simply want to treat themselves!
