Blown Away

Blown Away

A trip to this blowout spot lasts longer than a New York minute—and that’s a good thing. Blown Away has revived a certain kind of old-school neighborhood beauty shop, where ladies linger to laugh and gossip long after their hair’s done. Owner Danielle Savino wanted a salon with a more intimate, less-rushed vibe, so she opened the place just last year. Patrons hang out and talk, sipping fruit-flavored water or mimosas and enjoying $30 blowouts—yep, that’s with tax and a wash included. Add-ons such as updos and hair treatments are extra, and walk-ins are welcome (but appointments are preferred).
