Totally Blo-wn Away ! - My Experience at blo Blow Dry Bar Burlington


“You’re not cheating on your hair dresser” - blo

Okay, Ladies… Let’s discuss the ultimate girls day, full of luxury and pampering for lush, healthy hair. Acquire the most up to date hairstyles seen on your favourite celebrities and bloggers!

Owner and franchise partner of blo Burlington, Stacey Cubellis, was extremely generous and invited me to experience a day of their services and learn about what makes blo Burlington unique in contrast to the various salons on the market.

If you are unfamiliar with the company blo, they are a salon offering the most relevant beauty services that range from blow outs, curls, extension installations and the most intricate of braids and updo’s.

The salon is exclusive to hair styling and make up services. They do not cut or colour hair, making this a very unique space catering to those who are looking for event beauty services or a weekly visit for upkeep of wash and style. They take walk-in traffic or appointments allowing for the most flexibility and convenience for the average individual’s busy schedule. blo Burlington offers home or on site services, ideal for weddings, photo shoots, parties or beauty events.

Marketed as a “bar” rather than a salon, the bar tailors a relaxed and hospitable environment, treating customers to a space of relaxation and enjoyment along with cheeky puns and playful innuendos.

The blo bar is lined with the most comfortable of white leather seats, stainless steel and pink accents adorning the most picturesque details. The Burlington location even offers a coffee and refreshment corner to add to the “bar” atmosphere. In addition, the client orders their desired style off of “the hair menu” or can bring a picture of choice and the “bloer" (stylist) will surely recreate the style. The layout is modern, airy and clean. The open concept salon, along with fantastic taste in music, is another appeal. Just like a bar... this is the destination where you want to socialize with all of your best girl friends!

Stacey has created a place in which every client will walk away with both a bold blow out & a luxe social experience.

My Experience and Style

When it came to the decision to choose a style, I knew I wanted to try something that was popular amongst clients and a style that was the complete opposite as to how I wear my hair on a regular basis. I made the decision to go with “Pillow Talk” which is a blow out featuring large relaxed, sultry curls. I found that this particular style reminded me of a style a Victoria’s Secret model would have during a campaign shoot. I also thought it would look great with my balayage hair. The experience started with a wash with the most fantastically fragrant shampoos and conditioners. During the process of my wash, Amanda (my Stylist) gave me a head and neck massage. This was such a treat and not something that I have experienced at any of the other salons I have gone to. This attention to detail of service, shows the high quality standards of the over all experience.

"Pillow Talk"

During the hour and half that I spent having my hair done, I had the chance to gain knowledge about my hair type. Amanda shared tips on what products to use and what I can do to keep it healthy. My stylist had the professionalism and knowledge to teach me about how to style my hair on an everyday basis. Amanda even shared some beauty secrets and what the team at blo uses to get the most editorial and fashionable looks.

I learned that all the fragrant products that were used during my wash and styling were from the brand called UNITE, which is the go to brand of blo.

UNITE - is a line of haircare products geared for the hairstylist professional. The collection includes over 40 different types of products. The range does not contain any harsh chemicals or heavy residues. They range from shampoo and conditioners, to styling and finishing hair products.

Where as the make up line that blo Burlington uses for all of the events and on site is glo Skin Beauty.

glo Skin Beauty is a cruelty free line, that is talc free, paraben free and cruelty free. They advertise that they do not test their range of products on animals and is PETA approved. They have a range of skin care and make up appealing to all your beauty needs and skin types.

I think it is extremely convenient to have the option of getting hair and make up done all in one stop. This is something that would be appealing to those going to prom or graduation, weddings or even if you want to get your very own glam squad for the day. I think that this would also appeal to business women who are looking for the convenience of being able to have a professional do their hair that lasts for long periods of time. This saves significant amounts of time that can be focused on other activities. Lastly, in addition to the luxury of having your very own glam squad on site, you gain knowledge from professionals in the beauty industry on what products are right for you. They are able to tailor specific hairstyles and tips when working with you. I think this is pretty valuable and adds to the overall experience.

My experience was smooth and luxurious. The attentive nature of the staff towards my happiness and needs made me feel special and relaxed. I enjoyed all of the little touches like the massage, offering of beverages and the high end products. This was a chance to have a day to myself to enhance my appearance and confidence. My style was exactly what I had in mind. It lasted me the week, looking just as fresh and bold as the day I received it. The experience is definitely worth it and I will return!

I hope that I have shared a new service and experience for you to enjoy. I know all that share in my interests of beauty will appreciate such a fantastic destination and will take advantage of the services.The immaculate attention to detail and quality of products, styles and customer service is far superior to your average salon. With the new generation of beauty lovers and social media moguls, the importance of appearance and quality has been more important then ever. I promise you will not be disappointed when visiting blo Burlington!!!
