(SPOT.ph) One step inside and you might just end up feeling like you've transformed into Elle Woods. It's not just the hot pink-which is a bright and happy splash of color that's sure to add some instant pep to your mood-it's the almost immediate certainty that you'll walk out looking fabulous. This blow-dry bar's goal, says owner Howard Chua, is to give each person who comes in an experience that's luxurious but affordable. "We want you to feel good when you're here, and to feel good when you leave."
Blo’s reception area is pretty in pink
Blo makes it easy to get great results when you can choose from seven different styles (each at P500), each with a personality of its own: Red Carpet is the classic, straightforward 'do; when you've got an important meeting to look good for, try the Executive Sweet; the Hunt Club will get you a perfectly polished ponytail. There's also High Society, for a French twist; the Holly Would, softly curled and flirty; Sex, Hugs and Rock & Roll for rockstar curls; and the Boho Braid, which is a pretty take on the plaiting trend. Every style starts with a quick shampoo, after which your stylist will work in some leave-on conditioner-a step that keeps hair soft and shiny all the way until your next wash.
Wash-and-wear in an instant
You can expect to be in and out in as little as 30 minutes, but the great thing about these styles is that you won't end up looking too done up, or that you put in too much effort, and, well, who doesn't want to look effortlessly fabulous? Be warned: this is one kind of "blow" that can get extremely addictive.
