Last weekend the newest Blo Blow Dry Bar location opened up in Bayview Village and I was there for the opening weekend celebrations!
You won’t find scissors or dye at the Blo Blow Dry Bar – so when you visit this cool and posh salon you’re technically NOT cheating on your hair dresser!

Opening up its first location in Vancouver in 2007 this fast growing franchise is now all over Toronto and boasts several locations in the US – 2 opening soon in Miami Florida.
Cotton Candy was being served too! (I did get some, and I ate it…and forgot to take a picture…oops)
The salon at Bayview Village is so girly and sleek – I feel like I’m walking into my own movie star dressing room. In fact, if I ever get blessed with my own dressing room, this is how I’d want it to look like.

I even love the front desk area! Check out that light fixture! I wonder if I could convince my husband to decorate our room like this….
Isn’t this awesome, a hair menu!!! GENIUS!

My stylist Cristina asked what I had in mind – I told her to be creative – I totally trusted her 🙂
While Cristina was doing her thing I was having a great chat with Navaz who owns the Bayview Village location with his wife Sharmina. I am in awe of this husband wife team who also run the Vaughan location, other business ventures AND have 3 kids…ummm…seriously?!? It was such a blast talking to Navaz who is definitely a proud owner and has such great respect for his team.
Some fun facts about Blo:
- Just $35 dollar for a blo out – all hair types and lengths!!
- All Bloers (Session Stylists) must attend Blo U (university) where they learn to perfect all the styles offered.
- You can get your blo on the go (BOTG) and the Blo team will come to your work or home
- They recently worked the MMVA’s
- Guys can get in on the action too with a “Blo Bro”
I know I’m TOTALLY loving this service. Being a curly haired girl it takes WORK to get swingy, bouncy hair or sleek straight hair so to get pampered for about 30 minutes and leave like I’m ready for the
red pink carpet, this is definitely meant for me!
I couldn’t stop shaking my hair around and I will need to find out exactly which products were used on me because my hair was still great the next day and even the day after (ack I know, I went 2 days without washing my hair – it still looked great – don’t judge 😛 )
Another person who I really have to thank is Hillary. She was kind enough to extend the invite to me and we had been emailing each other back and forth. We didn’t get to speak with each other for very long since she was super busy making sure everything was going smoothly but I managed to get her and Navaz to take a (blurry) picture with me:
Thank you so much to Hilary, Navaz, Cristina and the entire Blo team at Bayview Village! Check out the Blo Blow Dry Bar at their website, on twitter and on their facebook page.
