Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes: I could use a little levity right now, in the middle of Mercury Retrograde.

Got a little 70s-inspired chop-chop yesterday from Alexis Kuykendall at Ken Paves Salon.

It might be short today, but next week, I might wanna go long again.

Who knows?

We’ll just play it by ear.

As women, we are so married to our hair, so it’s good to spice things up a bit, and remember that:

We are more than our hair.

More than our appearance.

And, are really just the whole of our hearts.

And, I’ve gotta admit, a little levity feels pretty good right about now. 💇

Blown Away by Blow Angels

Oh Blow Angels! You had me at $29 blowout.

Blow Angels - I designate thee, The Primping Palace

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!

BF Really Excited!

BF Really Excited! I mean, this was my hair 4 hours after my visit!

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”.

BF

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!
