Hair TLC: Can I Get a Blowout Please?!

Share Button

Sponsored post in collaboration with Bubbles Salon. Bad hair and and views are my own.

Bubble-Salon-Opening-Pentagon-City-Maria-Jose-Ovalle-Very-Busy-Mama

Can I get a blowout por favor?!

What is it? A blowout is more than just “getting your hair dried.” It’s washed and then the magic happens. The stylish uses brushes to blow out your hair straight, with some product (think old school, when your grandmother would go to the salon to get her hair done once a week) It leaves you hair looking shiny, smooth and sleek. It can last you a few days. No home drying can do that — trust me, I’ve tried.

Now, I’m pretty sure these pictures tell you everything you need to know about my urge to get some major TLC on my locks. Color for sure, a cut (actually, a new style to be honest) a head massage and to top it off a good old BLOWOUT.

This Friday, October 24th from 5-9:00pm Colorworks, now Bubbles Salon will be celebrating their grand opening at Pentagon Row (VA ) and are inviting you to join us.

Yes, us. I will be there at 7:00pm to get my hair done and to meet their stylists.

Everyone who attends gets a free blowout and if you can’t do it that night, you have until October 31st to redeem their gift.

It’s no secret I’m stressed, depressed and working through the mess so I’m up for any chance that lets me sit in a chair with my eyes closed without having a toy thrown at my face.

If you are in the area, or going home from work, get off at the Pentagon City Metro and stop by!

¡Nos vemos!
