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!
