Blown Away

For the uninitiated, a blow out is when you go to the salon to get your hair washed, blown dry, and styled - no cut.  Apparently there's a ton of women in New York who do this - and not just for proms and weddings.  Enough people that there are several salons dedicated to the blow dry practice.  Last night, I went to one such establishment, Blow, to get my hair did.  It's a blow dry bar.  Seriously.  They have a whole task force of people employed there who do nothing by blow dry your hair.

I don't really get the point of doing this on a Monday night.  Why get my hair pumped full of hairspray just so I can go home, go to sleep, and wash it all out in the morning?  So, to make it worthwhile, we made sure to get a few drinks afterwards to show off our new 'dos.

While it may not be something you want to do on a random weeknight, I may be into it before big events.  I am not very talented with a hairdryer but by the time these ladies were done with my locks, I was looking all sorts of va va voom.  "Who's that movie star?" I asked as I looked in the mirror.  Oh!  It's me!  I could get used to this sort of pampering.

It'll cost you $40-$100 to get your hair blown dry, which seems steep next to the free ConAir I have stashed under my sink.  However, next time you have a big event to go to, save money on the dress.  Use something you already have in your closet and spend the money on some Serena Van der Woodsen hair.
