Even if you’ve perfected an at-home 'do routine, DIY'ing fresh-from-the-salon hair still isn't as exciting as actual salon hair. So, when you get the chance to score a pro-styled mane that's accessible, affordable, and comes with great perks (think: dreamy ambience, snacks, and champagne), it makes perfect sense to sit back and relax while someone else does the work.
Enter: Blowout Bar DC, where a $35 shampoo and blowout gives you access to luxury without the steep price tag. With services like basic blowouts and updos, it’s the perfect place to prep girls'-night tresses, as well as sleek workday or black-tie-event looks. Plus, there's a private lounge area where customers can touch up makeup, change outfits, or just relax before an appointment. Talk about luxe for less, right?
