As many of you know, I’m always on the lookout for new salons to try, as I love getting my hair done! Blo Blow Dry Bar is North America’s original blow dry bar. The minute I stepped into Tampa’s Blo Blow Dry Bar & Body By Blo, I felt right at home. I fell in love with the feminine details and decor, as well as the clean design and color scheme. I was immediately greeted by Cynthia Keenan, owner of Blo Tampa. She gave me a tour and told me about the variety of services offered at Blo Tampa. Initially I thought that they only offered blowouts but they really know how to pamper women with nail services, makeup, and waxing. One of their mottos is “taking care of business, all your lady business” and that is so true!
I was given a complimentary blowout by Becca, Chief Style Boss of Blo Tampa. We bonded over thick hair and she educated me on the right products for my curly mane. One great tip she talked to me about was washing my hair with cool water instead of hot water. Hot water washes out color and dries out hair, so Becca recommended that I rinse out my conditioner with cool water to see if that helps with my dry prone, curly and thick hair.
I love that Blo Tampa offers a menu of hair styles to choose from. They have seven signature blo out styles and a braid menu! I opted for Red Carpet – a classic blowout. I couldn’t believe how fast Becca was able to straighten my thick hair. I do think it had to do with their product lineup, and of course her awesome skills. Blo Tampa offers UNITE hair products, a premium hair care brand that specializes in vegan, paraben and sulfate-free products that nourish your hair.
I was introduced to several of their products during my blowout and I ended up purchasing the Boing Curling Cream, Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner, Beach Day Texturizing Spray, and 7Seconds Leave In Detangler. Cynthia gave me a free sample of the U Oil Argan Oil and it smells heavenly.
I have a wedding to go to on Saturday and I’m pretty confident that my blowout is going to last until then. I love how my hair turned out and can’t believe how soft and shiny it is! If you’re on the hunt for a new blowout bar or just want to be pampered, you have to visit Tampa’s Blo Blow Dry Bar & Body By Blo and tell Cynthia I said hello. It is located across from International Mall in Tampa. They are currently offering a special – Workdays Blo $30 Blo Outs on Mondays & Tuesdays! I can’t wait to stop in for a mani-pedi or makeover next!
