LOVE FROM OUR CLIENTS

This is probably my favorite place in the world. I NEVER feel better than when I leave here.

My hair ends up incredibly gorgeous and lasts for days (and the smell of their products is incredible). Plus, who doesn’t love a good scrub and even a mini massage before the blowout?

I’ve been to other blowout salons in the Twin Cities, and none even come close to the expertise, talent, and customer service that Blowdry! offers its clients. I can’t wait to keep coming back!
— Amy / Yelp
I love this place. Ally is amazing and can make your hair do things that you never thought would be possible. Whenever I have a date night or just want to have amazing hair for 4 or so days- I book an appt with Ally. I have been to quite a few blowdry bars in MN and this is hands down the best experience and no doubt the best results.

Every girl deserves to have beautiful hair :-D

It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s basic b*tch heaven.

That’s right, I admit it. I am the quintessential basic b*tch. And I don’t think there is anything wrong with that. Myself and (5) other coworkers went in for blowouts for NYE and ultimately another of our coworkers wedding.

Upon arrival they offer you a choice of beverage: champagne or La Croix. And not just your standard La Croix flavors, but the GOOD flavors. How is a basic to choose between the two? Never fear, you can have one of each if you would like.

This place is so much fun, reasonably priced, and they did a fantastic job taking care of all of us gals. Really kicked off our day right, and I WILL be back next time I have a special night out. Kudos to the entire staff at Blowdry! Blowdry Bar.

Absolutely AMAZING experience.

Was here on business and kept walking by, it instantly caught my eye. Adorable and inviting. Contemporary and Fun.

I checked it out online, I was going to make an appointment online but decided to wait, process seemed very simple and convenient. I was walking by and decided to stop in and made an appointment for a Brazilian Wax. Front Desk was so helpful and helped my friend out with all her Product Questions.

The waxing artist was AWESOME, completely professional, made me feel totally at ease. Was very very thorough and quick. It was damn near painless...I pay 60+ back in my home town an the experience is no were near as deluxe or enjoyable.

Kudos to the Salon Owners who seem to have cultivated an Awesome Staff, Savvy Space and FABULOUS Price Point.

This was one of the stops during my bachelorette party and it was definitely one of the highlights of the weekend!

Reasons to book your bachelorette party there (or make it a part of ladies’ night out or birthday party or pre-wedding fun, etc.)

-All the hair dressers and makeup artists are super nice and friendly! They are very professional and know their stuff!
-If you book out all the appointments available (which we did), then you end up with a private party!
-You bring the booze — they provide the glasses!
-You can pick and choose the services you want — some ladies got just the lashes, some got a full makeover, some got a blow dry, some got everything and some got nothing. They are totally flexible with your party! We sat around drinking wine until we were called for our appointment.
-Each blowout starts with a head massage, then a shampoo and conditioner. The head massage felt sooooo good!
-My hair doesn’t hold a curl AT ALL but my stylist did something magical and got my hair to hold a loose spiral curl!
-It’s close to a ton of restaurants and bars in Uptown so there are lots of fun options within walking distance after you get beautified.

I strongly recommend this place! It’s so much fun to do with your girl friends! They also do bridal/bridesmaid hair and makeup!
— Wen / Yelp
I went to do my trial 2 weeks before the wedding, but it was as if the trial wasn’t even necessary - they got my hair and makeup spot on with their first try! On the wedding day, they were able to replicate what they had done, but it seemed like they did an even better job on the actual day. I also paid for all 6 of my bridesmaids to get their hair done, and they all turned out great! 5 of them also got their makeup done there too, and we all looked amazing by the end. Although different people worked on our hair, we had a “braid” theme throughout so that we looked cohesive. All of my bridesmaids were happy with their look in the end. The salon is super cute too and they let you bring in food/beverage (including mimosas!) so we did that, which was fun! The prices are competitive - I definitely shopped around before I picked the salon. I think that updos are very expensive nowadays, and they had a reasonable price and did a wonderful job. I will be back for their services again soon!

I have never written a Yelp review before but feel compelled to after my OUTSTANDING experience here. Everything about Blowdry is wonderful; from the moment you walk in the door you are pampered from someone helping you with your coat and offering you a beverage to a glorious scalp massage and comfortable shampoo beds.

Each person I encountered was incredibly professional and friendly. I had my blowout with Maureen and she was absolutely great. She made my hair look better than it ever has and I truly enjoyed talking with her during my appointment. She is incredibly talented both as a stylist and a businesswoman. I can’t recommend her highly enough. She answered all of my questions and suggested products that I asked about, but was not pushing any sales on me which I truly appreciated! I also had a wax with Heidi and it was the best waxing experience I have ever had. It wasn’t painful, she was fun to talk to, and she even gave me some coverup! I didn’t catch the receptionists name but she was also great and super helpful.

I have a ton of long, thick, curly hair which takes forever to style. I had signed up for a 60 minute appointment but even ran over that time. Unlike other places, they didn’t charge extra for the extra time or make me feel bad about it...In my opinion this speaks volumes to this business; they truly value their clients.

I will be back anytime I want to feel pampered and look beautiful!!

...The shop is super cute and smells great. I love the concept and everyone was so friendly!! Maureen put on some falsie eyelashes (my first pair) and I love them. She gave me some helpful tips ad sent me to Ally for my blowdry and style. What a great stylist! Conversation was easy and enjoyable and it felt like she was done in no time at all. I LOVED my hair. I am African-American and have lots of curly natural hair. I left the shop with soft silky, flowy hair. Thank you Ally!! Your shop makes me wish I lived in Minneapolis just so I could come back every week :-) My hair would smell so amazing all of the time! Love the organic products.
— Rachyl / Yelp
I had a beautiful curl/wave put in my hair for my wedding and I received so many compliments! The stylist was really friendly and professional. I was amazed at the swiftness of her work and the long lasting curl I got. My appointment was at noon and by 6:30, my hair still looked gorgeous. I washed my hair the day before, so was advised that the curl would stay longer if we didn’t wash again during the appointment; perfect advice! I will definitely be back!
— Lisa / Yelp
The...service starts with a scalp and neck massage (worth the price, alone!). Next is shampoo... followed by a very precise, attentive blowout that left my hair silky, smooth, and perfectly piece-y in the way I can never achieve on my own.

Couldn’t be more pleased with my experience at Blowdry! I was looking to try a blow out for the first time for my engagement pictures and was about to book at a salon slightly closer to my home, but thank goodness for Yelp reviews I opted to check out Blowdry! After some issues booking on the website, they answered my tweets in real time and got me all set up! Ciara, my stylist, was so sweet and did such a fantastic job! Adorable salon mixed with great customer service and fabulous blow outs; why would I go anywhere else? Thanks so much Ciara for making me feel model ready for my engagement photos! xo

I had the amazing opportunity of getting my hair done by Emily. The entire staff was very friendly and hospitable. Emily talked me through all the steps so I could learn a little better how to manage my own hair. When she was done, I was in shock! I’ve never seen my hair look that good!! The curls even lasted 3 days with a little dry shampoo on night 2. Thanks girls! I’ll be back soon!
— Emily / Facebook
Amazing! I had my hair done in an updo and my makeup done for my wedding and it lasted the whole night and even through the rain. The ladies were super kind and very willing to work with you. It’s a very cute little place.

Oh, where to start - this place is just brilliant. I have been there a couple of times now, and have had a blowout and makeup done.

My first blowout was for a wedding in July on a horribly hot and humid day. I’m not great at styling my own hair but figured that with the weather, all hope would be lost of my hair looking decent after the ‘I do’s were over.

Enter Stephanie, an artist armed with a round brush. After a really great scalp massage, she washed my hair with products that smell heavenly. (Yes, I have since purchased the shampoo and it is wonderful long term too) As far as the service itself goes, I dont have enough good things to say. She really is talented. Using very little product, she was able to turn my limp, flat hair into a whirl of fluffy curls. Somehow, there was no pulling or yanking (I have a sensitive scalp, so I notice these things) and even though it was a fair amount of time under the hair dryer, it wasn’t too hot or uncomfortable. The style stayed not only through the steamy evening, but all weekend - unbelievable!

Now I realize I haven’t said anything about Catherine, who does waxing and makeup. She is really very talented as well, and has such a warm personality. I loved my eye makeup - I never would have been able to do that myself, but she made me look totally glam in a classy way.

So, to sum it up - is this worth the money? Absolutely...beyond the fun atmosphere and gorgeous results, it is such a self esteem boost. It might feel a little extravagant, but for me this was just such a treat. They have really paid attention to every little detail, from the decor to the services to the way the team treats every customer. I can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

I had a great waxing experience. I have several horror stories of poor waxing experiences (eye brows and bikini) and I vowed never to go to a “cheap” location again, so I have been paying an unreasonably high price for these services at seemingly high end shops. I discovered this place when I moved close by and thought I would give it a try as the reviews were stellar (and the price even better!). I was nicely surprised and enthralled that I could get a great service for a fraction of the cost I was paying elsewhere. They have won me over. I highly encourage people to go here, you wont get a better price for the service ANYWHERE.

I brought my bridal party here to get our hair and makeup done on the day of my wedding. Blowdry was very, very good to us — especially because, months before, there had been some confusion about the date and time we needed reserved. Just when it was looking like I had screwed myself royally and would have to start looking for a new hair and makeup place, Mary from Blowdry made room in the schedule (there was already another bridal party in there that morning) by bringing over stylists from other sister salons to make our reservation work. They went out of their way, and saved my butt!!!

As for the experience itself: we had a great time. They let us bring in food, and there was coffee and tea available for us. All of the stylists were very professional, personable, and quite skilled. I left feeling great. The stylists made sure we all looked good; they even stepped in and re-did a bridesmaids hair when they decided it wasn’t quite up to par. A huge shout-out to Rae and Samantha!

As a side note: I would really recommend doing their bridal package, which includes a pre-trial. At first blush, it seemed an unnecessary expense, but I’m so glad that I did it. It was incredibly helpful, both to help me figure out what the heck I wanted, but also to get to know my stylists and help calm the nerves. On the day of the wedding, I walked in the door knowing exactly what I was getting from someone that I’d already established a rapport with.

Thank you so much for everything, Blowdry!

Included is a muscle-melting scalp massage, shampoo, and, of course, the round brush magic. I’ve never been able to master the round brush...and now I don’t have to.
— Katie / Minnesota Monthly
I cannot rave enough about my experience at Blowdry! I went yesterday to get my hair styled for my engagement shoot and was so happy with the end result. The products they used worked wonders for my fine hair. Even with a ton of wind, my hair stayed put...Prices are extremely reasonable and the staff makes you excited to be there. I will absolutely be bringing my bridal party here the day or our wedding.
— Lizzie / Yelp
My friend and I found this place when we were in town for a wedding. The price was great, the service was good, and we were both very happy with the final product. She and I have fairly different hair (mine is long and fine, hers is short and thick) however they did a great job with both of us!

When we called they could only offer us appointments back-to-back at 11 and 12, but when we both showed up at 11 they were able to squeeze us both in at the same time. They have these shampoo beds they use, rather than chairs, so you don’t have to crank your neck backwards. I thought it was weird at first, but it won me over when I experienced how comfy it was. My stylist was very attentive to my hair type in determining what to do. I explained that my hair doesn’t hold curls very well and I’m pleased to say that with her help the style held up quite well throughout the evening!

I’d definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a solid blowdry bar in Minneapolis.
— Alana / Yelp
I love this place. The price point is reasonable...she turned my over processed damaged hair into beautiful healthy hair that looked so pretty. I also added the add on bliss treatment for only 10.00 more dollars you get a hair treatment with soothing eye mask and arm massage it was pure heaven. All the products are vegan and cruelty free. I am def coming back...

I had my hair and makeup done at blowdry for my engagement pictures, and knew I wanted to come back for the wedding day! The salon is SO cute, my photographer came with us and got some excellent shots. They were able to accommodate hair and makeup for our whole wedding party, and you’re allowed to bring in food and drinks to enjoy while getting ready (including alcohol, so we all enjoyed a few mimosas!). My wedding was outdoors on a hot, humid day, and our hair and makeup held up well. The girls who had their hair half up did lose some curl, but we were outside from about 2pm-11pm, so perhaps that can’t be avoided. My hair was all up in a vintage inspired style, and the stylist captured what I wanted PERFECTLY. Everyone there was so laid back and chill and talented! I would recommend doing the trial run package for bridal packages as I did notice a few changes I wanted to make before the real deal. Overall this place was fantastic and a great way to spend the wedding morning!

I went to Blowdry Blow Dry Bar in Uptown Minneapolis for my engagement photo hair and make-up. That was such a good experience I booked my wedding day hair and make-up to be there along with the entire bridal party. I looked amazing, they had several options to accommodate each girl. All of us had updos and makeup done. I had airbrush that looked flawless. They had plenty of staff there that we were out early. We loved that we were able to bring in breakfast and have a fun experience.
— Stephanie / The Knot
My first bikini wax and it was awesome. I don’t think that’s a word usually used with bikini wax, so I’d say that’s all the review you need. However, I will go on to say that she was super professional while being really relaxed. I was really nervous and I have very sensitive skin and she was amazing at calming my nerves and skin. Price was incredibly reasonable. Easy location to get to and park. Receptionist was lovely. The place was adorable. Will return!
— Amy W. / The Knot
I have tried the other blowdry bar and yours. I much preferred the atmosphere at Blowdry...more intimate, friendly and my hair looked great.
— Maureen / client survey
I’ve checked out other blow dry bars in Minneapolis for blow outs, and every time left feeling underwhelmed and disappointed. I’m so glad I gave it another chance at Blowdry! They are by far the best! I highly recommend going here and will be going back.

Blowdry is basically made for pre-wedding primpery. It’s a pretty space (nice ambiance for those “getting ready” photos), relatively relaxing because it’s small. However, it’s large enough for the whole wedding party to have their hair done almost all at once (we were in two shifts and there were seven of us).

Once I got in the hair-chair, my very chic and friendly stylist asked me what I was thinking and I showed her two updo pictures I’d pinned. She ended up doing a kind of combination of the two and it was perfectly lovely. It stayed put through the windy outdoor photos and looked polished right up until I wrestled all the bobby pins out at 2 a.m.
— Annie / Yelp
Relaxation station! My wedding party and I went to blowdry! the day before my wedding for a blowout and some girls’ time, and this experience did not disappoint. The store itself is just adorable. When we walked in, we were greeted by the nicest front desk staff and immediately offered something to drink. We then went back for our hair and the blowdry staff was kind, professional, and made us OH so relaxed. It started with an amazing scalp massage, followed by a lay-down wash (amazing!), and then we all left with beautiful, flawless hair (and they gave us tips as to how to get our hair to look like that on our own!). We were never pressured to buy any packages, which is always a huge plus for me when it comes to spa/beauty spots. If I could, I would go here every day! Can’t wait to go back.

Don’t hesitate to let the team at Blowdry Blowdry be responsible for all your hair and makeup needs! They got my entire group dolled up in royal fashion and without a trial even. They even did my flower girl’s hair, which was really special. Sam did the most amazing up do after seeing just two pics. Heidi got my makeup spot on too, natural and beautiful. They are the best, look no further!
— Jackie S. / The Knot
I searched high and low for someone who could do my hair and makeup just how I wanted. I started with a very low budget, and quickly realized that it is extremely hard to find places that can do an updo and bridal makeup for under a couple hundred once you throw in trials etc. So while this was more than I wanted to spend, in the end it was 100% worth it. She really got that I wanted an updo that looked unfussy, like I could have done it myself (if I had those skills). My makeup was exactly what I wanted, I looked like me only better. Plus, by the end of the night, my makeup still looked like it was just applied even though it was over 12 hours later.

I have never before had my makeup professionally done, although I have always wanted to, especially on special occasions. I found Blowdry online, read the reviews and gave it a shot for my birthday party last night...it is a steal of a price for a full makeup job. My appointment was with Catherine of which I let them know through the online scheduler that I was African American and I was going all out and wanted big bold makeup as I was wearing a royal blue dress with a hot pink and black wig. That’s right people, a hot pink and black wig. I knew it was a makeup job I could never pull off putting together myself.

Arriving at Blowdry at 5:45p I will say the shop is very neat, chic and super cute. I was greeted right way by Catherine who is just as sweet as she can be. She showed me the preview of my make up she was going to do based off of my scheduler notes on royal blue, hot pink and black and I was super excited. When she was finished, my makeup was flawless! While she was doing my makeup I did ask her if they truly could do my natural hair, as I do not have a relaxer (as there are places who say they can, but they really cannot), and she assured me yes they could. I will say she did such an amazing job on my makeup I am more than willing to give them a chance on my hair. I will be back to Blowdry.

I went in to get a blow out for my engagement pictures, and was totally impressed! Such a cute salon, and Ally did a great job on my hair. I got nervous when the wind picked up during our pictures, but the style stayed strong the whole time. Will definitely be back for weddings and other special occasions!
— Kelly / Yelp
My visit to Blowdry far exceeded my expectations! What a fabulous way to start the night or just a pick me up! The products smelled amazing, the place is adorable, great fun gifts to purchase, and let’s not forget...the massage, blow out, and amazing way I felt afterward was priceless!! I will be back soon! xoxo
