What blows: never being able to get a blowout in Chicago.
What doesn’t: Blowtique opens Saturday.
What blows: Saturday is three days away.
What doesn’t: The staff’s reserving appointments all day Friday for DailyCandy readers.
It’s no surprise a well-groomed European is behind our city’s first dry bar (a salon solely dedicated to blowouts and styling): Ireland native Fiona McEntee took one look at Chicagoans’ windswept locks and decided she needed to straighten us out — literally.
Sit back in a comfy chair, grab an iPad, and choose your service (stick straight, tousled waves, big-body curls). Stylists use Oribe (a results-driven product line exclusive to Blowtique), a hand dryer, and a brush (read: no flat irons here) to style you in 35 minutes.
Blowouts last up to three days.
Just do it.
Blowtique, 1 East Huron Street, at State Street (312-280-2400 or blowtique.com). A blowout is $35. To reserve a Friday appointment, email email@example.com and include hashtag code #blownaway. Space is limited.
