Experience: Blo Blow Dry Bar
Wake up, put on a little make-up, head to work, throw down a meeting (or 2 or 5), break for lunch, work a little more and then suddenly… It’s time to go home or go out. While I usually have 15 minutes to throw on some make-up, I won’t lie – I typically neglect my hair. Sometimes I don’t have time or I just can’t perfect my curls and that’s why I’m happy I discovered Blo Blow Dry Bar. Blo Blow Dry Bar is the perfect escape for when you need a little pick-me-up. It’s a ‘no cut, no colour’ concept bar, meaning all they do are washes, blo outs and styles. I recently went to their Shangri-La Hotel Toronto location to see what all the buzz was about.
Booking an appointment with Blo is super easy. You can call them by phone, book online or use their new app. The app is able to find the nearest location to you and only takes a couple of quick minutes to book a blo out! I decided to book Blo’s signature service, which includes a wash, blo out, and style for $35. Blo Blow Dry Bar provides clients’ with a Hair Menu, which includes curls, a ponytail and braid, to name a few. I chose to go with Pillow Talk; a wavy, tousled, bed-head look.
After getting a very relaxing wash with Unite Eurotherapy shampoo and conditioner, I was ready for my blo out. As I flipped through magazines, my stylist blew dry my hair using a round brush.
After the blo out came the style. My stylist used a curling wand to achieve loose waves and even gave me a few tricks on how I could achieve the look at home. Though I chose a style from Blo’s Hair Menu, you can also choose styles a la carte, meaning if you bring in a photo of the look you’d like, Blo’s stylists can mimic it!
The entire process took about 30 to 45 minutes and I loved every minute of it! There’s something so relaxing about getting your hair washed and styled. It’s the perfect way to pamper yourself for any occasion. Whether it’s for a special night out, wedding or weekly pick-me-up – this is the perfect service for you!
