Unfortunately, I was not born with hair that looks good with the “shower-and-go” look. Most days I wish I could skip the 25 minutes I have to spend blowing out myhair, but I figure my trendy co-workers wouldn’t think my naturally frizzy hair is all that attractive.
That’s why I’m obsessed with Primp and Blow – A Blow Dry Bar, a new blowout bar in North Scottsdale. Talk about the best invention ever! Primp and Blow makes it easy (and super affordable) for you to pop in to their trendy spot and relax while a talented stylist washes your hair and gives you the ultimate blow dry.
I made an appointment with Kristen, who was ready for me on time (does that ever happen in a salon where they do color and cuts, too?). She led me back to a trendy white chair and offered me water or an iPad to use during my service (cool!). After talking through the type of blow out I wanted (sleek but with volume), Kristen washed my hair using Bumble and bumble products and gave me an amazing neck and head massage, too.
During my treatment, Primp and Blow’s owner, Melodi, came over to see how everything was going. She told me that along with blow-outs, they also offers up-do styling, makeup application services, hair therapy treatments, eyelash applications and even hair tinsel applications. She also mentioned that she plans to offer mobile Primp and Blow services soon, catering to bridal parties and other events where beauty services are needed on location.
When Kristen finished my blow out, my hair looked smooth and shiny, and had the perfect amount of volume.
Each service at Primp and Blow comes with an extremely affordable price tag, which is a bit surprising considering the salon’s high-end North Scottsdale location. A classic blow out is $35, makeup services run from $15-$35, up-dos are $65 and hair therapy treatments run $10-$30. Or, you can choose the Primp and Blow package that includes a blow out and a makeup application for $60. Plus, moms can treat their tweens to a Tween Blow Out (ages 12 and under) for only $25 — great idea for a fun day of mother-daughter bonding!
Give your own blow dryer a break and head to Primp and Blow for a great blow-out!
