Blown Away by Blow Angels
Date posted: July 26, 2012 | By: Dawn
Oh Blow Angels! You had me at $29 blowout.
And then you add parking in the back, mint-infused spa water, talented stylists and superb customer service?
Oh no. Now I’m really in love.
You see, I love to love. I really do. But when it comes to primping salons, I have been broken-hearted a few times.
Not this time, Romeo. This time, Cupid’s arrow has made a match.
I have found the ultimate primping palace that won’t pummel your pocketbook.
And I’m reallllly excited about it? Seeeee!
And not one of my friends knows about this beauty mecca so I feel like I’m Oprah debuting one of my favorite things to the world. Or at least, in this case, to my friends and readers.
YOU get a blowout! YOU get lashes! YOU get makeup!
And all for under $30 each!
Now, that’s just something I can feel good about. Right?
Here’s the scoop:
From the ladylike, Tiffany-robin’s egg-blue and white theme to the master stylists who do truly exceptional work, I am seriously blown away by Blow Angels.
I decided to get the works for my Hotel Cafe show on a Saturday night. My family was in town and I was going to be onstage and visiting with tons of people so I really needed to look my best!
I told the Angels this. I felt a little bit like Charlie from Charlie’s Angels to be honest.
“Angels, I have an assignment for you. I need glamorous hair, makeup and lashes that will last as long as I do this evening.”
The Blow Angels, Libni and Ziggy accepted their challenge.
In a little under an hour and a half, I was walking out with gorgeous, Jaclyn Smith/Farrah Fawcett winged hair, Victoria’s Secret Angel-worthy runway makeup and faux lashes that didn’t look false at all – just lush, lush, lush.
And all for UNDER $100!!! No, you’re not imagining things. The styled, voluminous blowout was $29, the makeup $30 and the lashes $15. Wowsers.
FYI, I got the Angels Blow – seen here:
As I was leaving, I told them (yes, really), that I felt like I needed to get in my car and sing that famous ditty from West Side Story, “I Feel Pretty”. Um, I think I may have lost them there.
But you know what isn’t lost on me? Talented stylists who love what they do and make me love the way I look..if only for a night!
At dinner – 4 hours later –
And, guess what, 8 hours later, I still felt like singing the “pretty” song.
Thank you, Blow Angels!!
I’ll see you soon with another “Angels assignment”.
p.s. It was also an added bonus when I said “Gosh, I’m nervous! I could really use a glass of wine.” And the angels heard me and brought me a glass of chocolate-infused red wine. Is that you, God? It’s me, deliriously delighted Dawn.
BF Asks: Have you ever tried Blow Angels? Or how ’bout just “winged” angel hair? Dying to hear your answers, angels!
