The FAQs

Frequently asked questions about Blowdry!

What is a blowout?

At Blowdry! we shampoo your hair (amazing head and shoulder massage included), then blow it dry with round brushes into a gorgeous style that will likely last for several days. Our techniques with hair dryers, brushes, irons, and products seal the hair cuticle, leaving hair shiny, bouncy, swingy, and simply gorgeous until you wash your hair again. Perfect for a special event, a big date (or after a bad date), an afternoon out with girlfriends, or as a confidence boost in preparation for a big week at work. The blowout makes your hair look and feel terrific, which makes you feel pretty terrific too.

No haircuts? Seriously?

No, darling. We don't cut or color hair at Blowdry! It's true. You can keep your favorite stylist or colorist and come to Blowdry strictly for a fabulous blowout. Many of our blowdry artists are stylist and colorists in other salons, so if you fall in love with your blowdry artist, we encourage you to inquire about a cut or color in their other salon.

Can I pick a specific stylist?

Sure. You can request a stylist by name if you have a favorite. Otherwise, we encourage you to choose the time that works best for you. Any and all of our stylists are fun and will give you a fabulous blowout.

How long can I expect my blowout to last?

Your blowout will likely last you several days before you need to wash your hair or come back for another blowout at Blowdry. Some tips to prolong your blowout are to keep your hair dry and out of the rain, sleep with a satin pillow case to minimize morning bed-head, wear a shower cap in the shower, and go easy on the sweating. You can freshen your blowout by blasting your roots with a hair dryer (even though your hair is not wet) to minimize any buildup of oil on your scalp. Dry shampoo is a perfect solution to extending your blowout too. Sprinkle or spray some on your scalp to absorb oils, and then brush it out. The length of time between shampoos also depends on your hair type. Blowouts for coarse, thick, or curly hair tend to last longer than for very fine or oily hair.

Can I book a large group?

Blowdry! is the perfect place for a group of women to have fun and look fabulous… together. To get you all in at the same time, call ahead and make a block of appointments. Bachelorette parties, bridal parties, or simply a girls' night out are all part of the fun at Blowdry! Email Us to schedule your appointments.

Does it cost more if my hair is longer, thicker, or curlier?

No, darling. The cost for a blowout for everyone is $35. If your hair is very long, thick, or textured, we can handle it and make you look and feel beautiful, for just $35. If your hair is especially thick, curly, or textured and may take us longer than 45 minutes to an hour to style, please give us a call so we can be sure we allow extra time for your blowout, at no extra charge.

Does it cost more if you use curling irons or flat irons?

No, darling. It's $35. Sometimes we might achieve your look with just a blowdryer and a team of brushes, and sometimes we may enroll the help of rollers, curling irons, or flat irons. Regardless, it's $35.

How do you use Lulu Organics Hair Powder?

According to the pros at Lulu Organics you should sprinkle a dime to quarter size amount of powder into the palm of your hand. Then, rub your two hands together so a thin layer of powder is covering both palms. You then work your hands through the root of your hair. If you need more, repeat. Some like to apply the powder with a blush brush or powder brush directly to the root. Dip the brush in the powder then shake before applying. Brush your hair after the application. If you see ANY trace of powder it will subside with the absorption of oil. DO NOT apply the powder directly to your roots! This is a common mistake and a b-line to a George Washington powdered wig look.

You offer gel manicures! What kind?

We choose to use Orly® Gel FX™ for our gel manicures. We love the colors and the performance of this gel polish line. Gel polish goes on the nail in a similar fashion, but between steps the nails are "cured" with an LED light and completely dry in 30 seconds! You can expect a super shiny, chip-free manicure that will last two weeks (or more)! The cost of the service is $40. Professional removal is required for this polish and professional removal is free at Blowdry IF you also receive another manicure after removal. If not, then removal is $20.

Can I bring my dog to Blowdry?

We love cute little doggies - we really, really do! Unfortunately having pets of any kind in any salon in the state of Minnesota is against State Regulations so...no pets allowed. :( If your dog is a guide dog, please bring along the official paperwork, and we will happily oblige. Thank you for understanding.

What is the Keratin Smoothing Treatment?

We offer the Keratin Smoothing Treatment, a treatment for the hair that reduces frizz and curl for 3 to 5 months. The treatment restructures hair by infusing a special blend of natural keratin deep into the cuticle, making the hair more manageable and take much less time to style. It will be noticeably softer and straighter, with added life and shine. The service takes about 3 to 4 hours, depending on hair length, type, and texture and costs $300 for short hair / $350 for long hair. Call to schedule a complimentary consultation.  

How long should my hair be for waxing?

Hair length for waxing should be at least 1/4" in length so the wax can fully adhere around the hair follicle so it can be effectively removed. In general, it takes about 3 to 4 weeks of growth to reach 1/4" in length, depending on the individual.

Wait…isn’t it spelled Blow Dry?

No longer, friends! We made our own new word to illustrate our enthusiasm for great hair - Blowdry! It's more active and better describes the blowout, at least for us. Play along and forget the grammar. Remember the days before Salonspa existed? Before Brangelina? We have declared Blowdry! to be our new favorite word and a divine experience. Blowdry! Blowdry! Blowdry! You heard it here first.
