Blow dry only hair salons have become a new craze. It's not an expense I can justify on a regular basis, but I purchased a deal voucher a little while back for Blowout Bar DC in Foggy Bottom/West End. A few weeks ago, I decided to use the certificate before my friend's bridal shower that I was hosting. I am smitten! The location was convenient and close to the metro. The salon was simple but had an overall pleasant relaxing atmosphere. There were plenty of magazines to read, and I enjoyed a class of peach champagne (included!) which was a great treat. Most importantly, they did an amazing job on my hair. My stylist was fast, but great, and delivered exactly what I wanted. The results were so good that the bride actually asked me after the shower where I went so she could go to get her hair done there before her engagement pictures (I just saw a selection of them, and she - and her hair - look amazing). At $35, their normal price is slightly better than their competitor, drybar, and I personally got better results than I did on my visit there.
Given all of this, I was thrilled to see another deal offer come out for Blowout Bar, this time through The Capitol Deal. A blowout voucher is available for $20 and you can buy up to two for yourself and up to two for friends. Click here for the direct link.
This is a great special treat before a big night out or even just a nice pick me up. The salon is new, which is likely why they're running the deals now, so I'm stocking up now. Check them out and let me know what you think!
