Brace yourself, because life is about to get a whole lot more glamorous. You know those classic shampoo commercials, with the gorgeous model tossing around her shining locks? That's going to be you. After many years (and several angry letters from us to our congressman), a blowout-only salon is coming to Chicago. The new spot, Blowtique, will specialize in styling and updos, and they've got a full menu of artful styles to choose from. Selections include The Magnificent, a smooth, classic blowout, The 5th Avenue, a sleek, high-gloss look, and The Sunset, featuring tousled waves. The best part? Each blowout only costs $35, and lasts 35 minutes, so you can stop in anytime you need a pick-me-up.
When: Open daily, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Where: 1 East Huron Street (at State Street); phone TBD.
