Bridesmaids bond best when everyone comes out looking like a movie star. So gather the girls at a blow-dry bar—the Twin Cities now has five of them—for blowouts and makeup. Yes, the blow-dry bar mantra is in and out in 45 minutes (for $35), but these beauty shops are always up for some fun. The Wow Bar at 50th & France, with its striped walls and tufted white sofas, provides a chic setting for your getting pretty party. Book a group of appointments or rent out the whole place for a Wow Social, which includes optional makeup services, drinks, and nibbles along with hot towel service, a vigorous shampoo, and your choice of hairstyling from a highly trained staff led by blow-dry guru Jason Deavalon. Parties can be customized, so call for pricing.
