Banish bad hair days! Blow-dry bars have blown into town in a major way. Here’s where to get a blowout in the Twin Cities:
From the owners of Haus Salon, a sleek blow-dry bar offering shampoo and style for $35. The 60-minute service starts with a blissful scalp and neck massage. Choose from a menu of styles like boho and bombshell or create your own. Waxing, makeup application, brow and lash tints, and faux lashes are also available. 1203 Lagoon Ave., Mpls., 612-824-4878, blowdryblowdry.com
At this blow-dry bar, the mixologists serve both lemonade and an exclusive shampoo customized for your hair type. A shampoo and blow-dry is $39, with a menu of styles to choose from. A VIP room can be rented for parties. For girls 10 and under, there’s a $30 “Princess Blast.” Waxing and makeup application are also available. Every Monday, blowouts are FREE for veterans and veterans' wives. Shops at West End, 612-564-6959; Mall of America, 612-424-5770; 940 Washington Ave. S., Mpls., 612-424-5762; Woodbury Lakes, 651-967-7052, blastdrybar.com
Veteran hairstylist and creative director Jason Deavalon helped launch this successful blow dry bar through an extensive training program. No detail has been overlooked, from iPhone chargers at each station to warm towels and Kerastase Hair Treatment shots. Shampoo and styling is $35. Makeup and lash services are available. 5037 France Ave. S., Mpls.; 1104 Grand Ave., St. Paul, 612-334-3333, thewowbar.com
Blowouts at your doorstep—literally. Rather than open a blow-dry bar, Jon Charles Salon, which is known for its blow-dry expertise, converted an Airstream into a mobile salon available for hire. Great for weddings, proms, and special events. It’s $75 per hour/per guest with a minimum of five people. 612-724-2444, joncharlessalon.net
