Blo – Canada’s first blow-dry bar

WOULDN’T YOU KNOW it? A sudden dream-job interview or date on the immediate horizon, and your hair looks”.meh. A cut-and-colour is fine, but what you need is the pro touch. What’s touted as “Canada’s first blow-dry bar”, and called–what else–Blo, launched a few days ago at 1150 Hamilton Street. Open daily (Monday to Wednesday 7 to 7, Thursday and Friday 7 to 9, Saturday 7 to 7, Sunday 11 to 5), this is not a salon, they point out–even the setting is lounge-y. But in less than 30 minutes (and for $29), you walk out with one of eight different perfect-o styles. Rocker chic to classy, glassy straight–it’s your call. And don’t worry that you’re being unfaithful to your stylist. All it is, as they say, is a blow. Drop in, or reserve at 604-909-9495.
