Yesterday morning I went to the Bar...

No not a regular bar, a blow dry bar.  It is hard to believe but my chic little city with all of our fabulous girls with fabulous hair did not have a blow dry bar until now.

Lucky for all of us in Aventura, a new one just opened. It is called SoBlo and they only blow out and style hair. No cuts. No color. Just blowing (and updos)

It was their grand opening and I happened to be in the plaza where it is located yesterday and I wandered in. They were giving free samples! I would have paid because I had a big, fancy party at the Fountainebleu hotel last night so I needed some stylin.

They have about 10 chairs and they were all filled.  The hairdos coming out of there looked great.

The styling seemed a tad bit slow.  My regular stylist blows out my hair in less than 15 minutes and my blow out took about 35 minutes.  It seemed like everyone was sitting in the chairs forever getting their blowouts.  My results were good.  Way better than if I had blown it out myself.  My hair is pretty straight to begin with so I'm not a tough customer.  The lady in the chair next to me had poodle-like hair which looked amazing after they were done with her.  Like a before and after ad!

SoBlo charges $35 per blowout which isn't the best bargain in town (my regular salon charges about $40) but SoBlo does not take appointments so that means you can just walk in when you want and walk out looking pretty.

SoBlo is located in the Promanade shoppes on Biscayne Blvd.

It is true, there is something new to learn everyday! Sounds like a great idea, I can wash but I can't style-perfect.

We have NOTHING like that here. Nothing. The Midwest is always the last place to catch on to something like that-and this area is so conservative that it is hard for them to accept anything new. xo Diana

My gosh let me get my blow dryer out of the cabinet....Who knew ! I have never heard of anything like this...our hair dressers just blow your hair dry and do not charge, it's part of the styling of perms, cuts, and shampoos. I am "blown away". :):) Japolina, I bet you can do your own hair as nice they can. xoxo,Susie
