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!

This blog began in January 2012 after blogging as my son for two years at Mummy’s Busy World (no longer online.) I was scared to be me, especially if I was going to show real style, fashion and beauty as a mamá. I hadn’t seen much by way of mom fashion bloggers so I wasn’t sure where to start. I thought fashion and beauty blogging was for the thin, under 30 and childless — at least that’s what it seemed like. {Read More}

I’m constantly looking for ways to improve or change up my style and look. Not that I’m unsatisfied, but as I’ve said before, it’s not just about getting dressed — it’s a creative process for me and one that I truly get joy from (except for when my jeans won’t go up past my thighs or when I have a permanent indent on my stomach from the button mark… you know, gordita problems.)

Sponsored by FitTea PostNatal FatBurner. Losing the baby weight struggle stories are my own. I’ve always been gordita and I gain weight just thinking about a carb. I don’t have to stray much from the norm to feel my jeans getting tighter — I know because I’ve been a range of sizes from 6 to 18. Naturally during my pregnancies I gained weight. When I had my son in 2009 I was in pretty bad shape due to having pre-eclampsia, a risky birth and a {Read More}
