With the new trend of blow dry bars, blowouts aren’t only for special occasions anymore. Blow dry bars offer plenty of benefits to keep you and your hair happy, healthy, and beautiful! Never heard of a blow dry bar before? Get the basics here:
What is a blow dry bar?
A blow dry bar is a salon that focuses only on giving blowouts. A blowout is when you get your hair shampooed, dried, and styled. In the past, women would treat themselves to a blowout only for special occasions, like for weddings or proms. But recently more and more women have taken to getting blowouts on a regular basis, leading to blow dry bars popping up all over the country! Now women are getting blowouts for a girls’ night out, at the beginning of the work week, or just whenever they feel like treating themselves.
So why pay someone to style your hair?
“Because it looks great” is the obvious reason! But frequenting a blow dry bar can benefit you and your hair in ways you may not have even thought about:
All the Right Angles
It’s hard to reach the back of your head with a brush in one hand and a blow dryer in the other. At a blow dry bar, you get a stylist who can reach every strand of hair on your head, so you don’t have to worry about only having half a hair-do. And your seemingly-difficult hair is no match for a stylist who has been trained to tame even the toughest tresses! So you don’t have to worry about a thing; just sit back, relax, and enjoy the experience.
Scalp massages have the same benefits as regular massages: they help you relax and de-stress. Having someone shampoo and massage your scalp stimulates circulation and releases endorphins, aka the chemicals in your brain that make you feel happy!
Results That Last
A good blowout will last you two or three days, and a great blowout may last you four or five days. You don’t have to style your hair every day, and you don’t have to worry about damaging your hair by over-styling. Plus, a style that lasts means you don’t have to wake up early to fix your hair every day!
Going to a salon is a social event, and the same goes for a salon devoted to the blow dry. You get to socialize with your stylist and your friends, or you can make new friends! A healthy social life is essential for a happy, healthy you, and a blow dry bar gives you a whole new place to get out and enjoy a good conversation.
Feeling Your Best
Let’s be honest, perfectly styled hair just makes you feel great! The scalp massage has relaxed you and your talk with your stylist has perked you up; every hair is in place, and you feel fantastic! After a trip to the blow dry bar, you feel fresh and put together and ready to take on the world.
