It’s wash, blow and go.
As someone with a whole lot of long hair, sometimes I just don’t feel like doing it. The combs, the brushes, the constant hot air, it can get old fast. Now there’s a spot in Blue Back Square that will do it for you…and it’s safe to say do it better too. Blo is North America’s original blow dry bar, and West Hartford is now home to their 18th location. The concept is simple: they wash your hair, blow it dry and you’re on your way.
And as it states as you stop at the front desk, it is NOT cheating on your hairdresser…thank god, love you Kelly.
Step One: Meet your “blower”
O sorry, did I mention there is a whole Blo culture? I should probably start with the blocabulary. A bloer is your stylist, a blo out is your styling session and a pink wig girl, that would be your Blo mascot. Read all about their own terminology on the Blo website.
Then you choose from the Hair Menu, get a relaxing wash and let the bloer do their thing.
A standard visit is $35 and there are seven different options on the Hair Menu that range from a signature red carpet look to a curly Beyonce-inspired do or a fun BoHo braid. You can also choose your own style from a favorite picture for an “a la carte” at $65, experiment with extensions for $70 or not even leave the comfort of your own home for a blo on the go at $75 per style.
Don’t worry fellas, you can also get a blo bro for $21.
I went with the “Holly Would.” It was an all around fun, relaxing experience. I went with two producers from FoxCT and we took the opportunity to catch up on some girl talk while we got beautified. Disclaimer, there’s a ton of pink and perkiness, so be prepared.
