Blowout Bars: What They Are And Why They're Amazing

You may not have heard about blowout bars, but I'll bet you've noticed how popular swoopy, voluminous blowout hairstyles have gotten. While wind machine ready hair isn't exactly a new thing, the hacks, tools, and even the salons that can help you reach new heights are certainly making it easier (and healthier).

Blowouts bars specialize in washing and styling your hair with no cuts or colouring involved. Before styling, you'll get a shampoo, deep condition, and whatever fortifying treatments that you'd like to add (like Olaplex), prepping you to go longer without washing your hair. Normally, you'll be styled with super high-end salon brands that you might not normally use at home which is also a major win for scalp care.

So what was once reserved for special events, getting your hair blown out for the week is seriously vying for our favourite self care activity.
