One of my favorite Cali bloggers, Lauryn Evarts from THE SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL, was in Austin this past weekend hosting an event at BLO: BLOW-DRY-BAR ; I was so excited to meet her…I kind of geeked out a little bit! Lauryn’s blog is awesome (& fun…because it’s how I found myself at the event getting a free Blo-out) and she’s crazy successful at what she does! Go and check it out!
While I was at Blo I got their Pillow Talk style! Think beachy tousled waves. See above right picture. I’ve got little frizzy hairs still sticking up from the Texas humidity, but what can ya do!
So what is Blo?
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?” We have been coifing ever since. Currently, Blo has 45+ locations to serve you across North America, and the Philippines, with more opening soon.. We can’t wait to blo you away! (Blo Concept)
It’s such a neat concept! With their blo-out at $40, you can easily make an appointment before an event, meeting, party, night out, date etc. and have your hair washed, dried, styled and ready to go! If you don’t like fussing with your hair, you aren’t great at styling it yourself, or you just want to be pampered a little bit then this is the perfect thing for you! They’ll even let you set up a Blo-Tab and get 8 Blo-Outs for the price of 7 if it’s something you could see yourself doing a lot.
You can check out all of their services HERE and you can also find locations on their website.
Lauryn has often talked on her blog about how she usually goes a good while without washing her hair (dry shampoo you guys), which ANY stylist would tell you is really good for your hair because washing it too often completely dries it out. I’m terrible at this! I hate the feeling of my hair being dirty…especially after working out and so I normally wash my hair EVERY DAY! And as you would guess, it’s super brittle. But I decided to see how many days I could personally go without washing my hair after having it styled!
…I made it three days with my pillow talk hair style! And then I HAD to wash it (because I went to the gym). But I will say that my styled hair on the second day was definitely the BEST of all my hair days. Lauryn actually has a great post for achieving this next day relaxed style on her blog which you can check out HERE.
