Another Day, Another Blowout

The blowout trend is blowing up everywhere and since I’d never had one, I hauled my frizzy, humidity-hating hair into Blowdry! in Minneapolis to see what Bets and everyone else has been fussing about. Wouldn’t you know—the blowout blew my mind.

After a neck/shoulder/scalp massage and shampoo, my stylist Julian molded my hair into an extra-voluminous bob using little more than hot air and a round brush (not to mention some supernatural upper-arm strength). I walked out with absolutely gorgeous Texas-sized hair and spent the next few days saying to no one in particular: Where did this hair come from?! But what might have blown me away even more than my big ‘do were all the fabulous extra services Blowdry! offers. I spent an hour with makeup artist and brow expert Catherine who for just $20 gave me the most pain-free eyebrow wax of my life and offered tips on filling in my brows using Damone Roberts brow powder (which I promptly purchased). The bar also offers lash & brow tinting, faux lashes and full or partial makeup applications. If hair is more your thing, top off that blowout with one of those crazy-amazing braids you’ve been pinning on Pinterest. A Blowdry! stylist will actually contort your hair into a fishtailwraparoundyourheadbraids—perfect for summer’s music festivals or channeling your inner boho.  –Dani
