Blo Blow Dry Bar Leaves Your Hair Sexy and Sleek

Share Button

Received hair services free of charge. Images and opinions my own.

Last week I walked into Blo — North America’s first blow dry bar at their Dupont Circle location in Washington, D.C. with dry, frizzy, over hair sprayed and unwashed hair.

I had been invited to experience the WASH, BLOW, GO concept (blow out and style) to celebrate the opening of their latest blow dry bar in Gaithersburg, Maryland and I wanted it to be worth my while.

What is Blo Blow Dry Bar? It’s a no cuts, no color hair salon. Just WASH, BLOW, GO.

I know, it sounds simple and so obvious. Sometimes you just want to have your hair properly dried and styled by someone else and sit back and relax (I’m the kind that lets my child play with my hair or bribe him to brush it!) Or you need your hair to be on its best behavior — especially on the go.

Blo makes it easy to pop in before a work meeting, before a date or just to look fabulous for the evening.

Right now the big news is that actress Gwyneth Paltrow and hairstylist to the stars David Babaii have joined the Blo family as part of the creative team with plans for growth and brand strategy.

With their partnership, Blo will be able to spread red carpet glamour to women with quick, convenient and affordable blow outs. So basically you can get sleek and sexy Gwyneth looking hair at any time. Like her or not, she does have gorgeous hair!

Blo has a hair menu with different style options and I ended up with the “holly would” which involves plenty of curls and bounce — AND I even changed up my part. I know, I went crazy! The next day my hair looked EVEN better; I really rocked the messy waves look.

Will I be back? YES.

The new location is at 317 Ellington Boulevard, Gaithersburg, Maryland and the D.C. location is one block from Rock Creek Park at 2126 P. Street, NW.

WASH, BLOW, GO mamas!

How To Style, Maintain and Trim Your Bangs (VIDEO)

Having bangs/fringe can be a lot of work — after all, they seem to have a life of their own! However if cut and styled right, the look is fresh, edgy and dramatic. Every morning I wake up looking like this: Hmm? The White Snake/80’s Hair Band look has NO place today! See my latest video on how to style, maintain (or tame!) and trim your bangs for a fresh, chic look.  P.S. as a bonus you get a mini Spanish {Read More}

Shop Small: Kiskadee Boutique Renovation Sale

Share Button

I received a gift card to shop the Renovation Sale. All items selected and styled by me!  — For those of you in the Washington, D.C. area, you know how much we value our small businesses. Here in Alexandria I am spoiled for choice with boutiques, cafés, fitness facilities — all owned and operated by locals. Having grown up in a mall (most of us did, that’s how it was) “shopping small” wasn’t even on the radar. In fact, I {Read More}

No More Gift Shopping, Please! (well, sort of…)

I am a part of the PBS Kids VIP program and was given credit to shop the Overstock Kid Zone.  In this house we have something I call “Birthday Burnout.” All of our birthdays are around the busiest times of the year — December and January. Mine is on December 19th. Let’s just leave it at that. Then comes Jesus’s birthday, which just leaves everyone knackered. After the new year we celebrate our wedding anniversary on January 7th, followed by my son’s birthday on {Read More}

Before the holidays I asked friend, personal wardrobe consultant and owner of Style Speaks, Cathy Starnes to help me get started on my closet organization. I found that despite cleaning and sorting, I  wasn’t exactly getting rid of stuff which is what I really needed to do. So I asked her to help me and we decided to put together a video on how to organize your closet and help others who have a hard time letting go of stuff. It’s scary {Read More}

Slimming and Stylish Lyssé Pieces Every Woman Needs

I worked with Lyssé on a sponsored Instagram only campaign and items were sent for me to style. This post is not sponsored or required. As women we compare ourselves to other women, something I stopped doing because it only makes you bitter and there is nothing you can do about it. There will always be someone prettier, smarter, better dressed, thinner, taller than you, etc. etc. But that doesn’t mean we aren’t fabulous ourselves.

This post comes to you after being in pj’s for an entire day and just lounging around the house with the husband and kids. Christmas Day and Boxing Day were sunny and gorgeous here in the DC area and nearly 50 degrees. We took a walk around Jones Point in Alexandria and let the kids run it out. It was an easy going day — barely any makeup, dry shampoo to get my hair looking somewhat decent and a simple, easy yet {Read More}
