Monday morning I had the pleasure of hosting a stylist from Blownaway App who arrived ready to whip my tresses into tip top shape. Like other blowout services, Blownaway offers no cuts, no colors, no trims. Using the app you book an appointment and viola! an uber talented pro arrives at your doorstep ready to turn your freshly washed locks into a Botticelli-worthy mane.
There's nothing complicated about this incredible concierge service whatsoever. Download the app, choose your style, your date and time and you're all set. Boom! At $55 the pricing is no different than other in-salon blowout services. My stylist Samantha was fun, incredibly talented and obviously loved her role in this rapidly growing mobile glamming empire. And... she came to me.
Prior to her arrival I washed & conditioned my hair. In no time, Samantha had my hair smoothly blown into supermodel shape. From there she transformed those sleek strands into cascading loose curls worthy of a magazine spread. Hello, gorgeous!
Blowouts done well last for days and this one exceeded any expectations I had. Those beachy curls lasted for several days and I was able to rock a very pretty low side pony on Wednesday with the remaining waves that was perfectly tousled. There's no question I'll be booking Blownaway appointments for myself to keep up this good hair affair.
Obviously this service is perfectly in line for our present love affair with on-demand services. Photo shoots, events, and just looking fab on the regular are all great reasons to book a blowout. A girl just needs a little boost sometimes, you know? And frankly, it gets more and more difficult to get out to the salon for pampering. To say I felt fabulous was an understatement and of course the in-home aspect makes this a no brainer. It was a reminder of just how important it is to treat yourself to quality services, especially when the price point is in line with competitor pricing.
While I harbor no grand illusions that I'll be able to mimic Samantha's red carpet ready look, I do pride myself on daily effort with my 'do. Here are a few of my tools of choice for fixing the mane between those oh-so-essential Blownaway App pampering sessions:
