Blo Blow Dry Bar
Although blow-dry bars have recently become all the rage, this Canadian chain claims to have been the first when it debuted in Vancouver in 2007. Having opened 29 branches throughout North America and Asia, Blo launches its first NYC location in a magenta-accented railroad-style space. Guests are greeted with a complimentary glass of water or pink champagne before getting lathered with Unite gluten-free, vegan shampoo at one of the two washing stations in the back. Blowouts ($40) are a flat fee regardless of hair length or texture, and there are seven styles—illustrated in a fuchsia hardcover book—to choose from, ranging from the pin-straight Executive Sweet and tousled Pillow Talk to the High Society top knot and Go Fish fishtail braid. There’s even a version just for guys called the Blo Bro ($25), featuring a 20-minute scalp massage. For special occasions, Blo offers updos ($65) and bridal packages ($160) that include a 45-minute consultation and in-bar service on the day of, but if you can’t make it to the eight-chair salon, Blo on the Go ($75 per style) sends a stylist directly to you. Pick up Parlux blow dryers ($330), Dry Divas bejeweled printed shower caps ($30), Unite volumizing spray ($22) and Tri Professional Haircare hairspray ($20) to maintain your newly coiffed locks.

This was my first time trying one of these blow out salons and I was very happy with the results. My hair looked fabulous in 40 min and upheld the style for days. Stylist was nice and gave me exactly what I was looking for and showed me a menu of options.

I'm fairly impossible to please when it comes to blowouts—I almost ALWAYS just go home after and wash my hair. Blo is the first place I'm actually happy with how I look when I walk out the door. Blowouts are 45 bucks, so fairly standard in the city (maybe a couple of bucks more than the other places), and they take appointments as early as 7 a.m., so you can run in before work. It's become my once-a-week guilty pleasure.
