If you’ve been following us on Instagram, you’ve seen that we are enjoying every minute of this holiday season. But I must say, having all of this fun is exhausting. So when we were invited to check out Blo Blow Dry Bar on Southport, we couldn’t have been more excited.
Blo is a bright and happy space with a friendly staff who makes you feel right at home. First you select a style from the menu - there’s currently a special holiday menu to choose from as well - and then you head over for your shampoo.
The shampoo is my favorite part. Complete with a scalp massage, it was the most relaxed I’ve been in weeks.
Betsy and I both went for the Pillow Talk style which is loose waves, a little messier than its glam sister style.
My stylist knew that I had a long day ahead of me. Betsy and I were going to go lunch then I had to pick up my threenager, do after school activities and then end the night with the middle school choir concert. Since my style had to last, she did my curls a little tighter with the promise that they would loosen throughout the day.
Betsy’s curls were a little looser to begin with. Both of us loved our looks!
Blo Blow Dry Bar also has a makeup counter so it really is the perfect spot for a night out or a big meeting with clients. The blow dry salon takes groups, too. How fun would it be to take girls before a dance or make it the first stop on a bachelorette party weekend?
I snapped this photo between dropping my daughter at dance and getting my other daughter ready for her choir concert. Perfect waves six hours later.
While Blo is great for those who live close, it’s location in the Southport Corridor neighborhood of Chicago makes it a fun destination for anyone in Chicagoland. Blow is down the street from the Mercury and Musicbox Theaters, close to great restaurants and gorgeous boutiques. In other words, the perfect spot to de-stress during the holidays!
Thabks to Blo Blow Dry Bar for giving a us complimentary blow outs!
