Taking a nod from mod salons on both coasts, the owners of Blown Away Blow Dry Bar are bringing this highly specialized concept to St. Louis. The blowout bara mainstay of Hollywood celebs and busy New Yorkersis a styling niche that until recently was reserved for the coasts. Now, the fashion-forward set of STL can get red carpet-worthy hair in no time flat, thanks to Blown Aways 30-minute wash, blowout and go service. The salon opened mid-October with a menu of six signature styles, ranging from Beachy Waves to Straight & Sleek, there are a number of different options to suit nearly any mane. But before you assume that all Blown Away is good for is fabulous hair, think again. Clever add-ons like scalp massages, deep conditioning and keratin express treatments turn the practical wash-and-blow into a much more pampering experience. The Kiss and Makeup Bar offers its own unique line of services, including air brush foundation and lash application. The ante can truly only be upped with the addition of gourmet wine and food included in bachelorette party and girls night out packages. 8815 Ladue Road, Clayton, 314.932.1116.
