STYLE GALS: Our Fantastic Night at Blow, the New York Dry BarBy DIVAGALS | December 5, 2012 | Entertainment
The DivaGals love the idea of BLOW, the New York Dry Bar. But we admit, we’d never entered its wall fearing that their would be no services for our braided extensions. Boy, were we wrong.
Last week, TV DivaGal attended a “Holiday Party Prep” event hosted by Molly Simms at BLOW, for complimentary blowouts. When I explained my unusual hair situation, they said “no problem!” and promptly steered me to super stylist Gina‘s chair.
Gina assured me I was in good hands. She whipped up a braid at the crown of my head, and then proceeded to curl the back to “add volume” to the fierce updo forming on my head. About 20 minutes later, I was done and looking chic.
Gina topped off my tresses with BLOW Time to Shine 3D Illuminating Mist with UV protection. She even bumped my kinky edges for a smooth finish.
“We do all types of hair here,” Gina said confidently. “That’s why I love working here, because we do have such a diverse group of people walking through the door.”
Gina also hooked up the head of my friend Lillian, who has fine, Asian strands. Gina added soft waves, which attracted the eye of a gentleman suitor later that evening. Now that’s hair done right!
During the event, we sipped on Cherry Smashes (vodka, Prosecco and cherry puree), whitened our teeth (yeah, while we got our hair did!) by Rembrandt Intense Stain strips and picked up this style tip from Molly, that you can totally mix high and low fashion, and look majorly chic. Molly shared that she was wearing BCBG and Prada, and we loved it! See more of our night’s pics on our DivaGals Facebook page.
