HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) -- A new trend in hair care is sweeping the nation by storm. Now, it's landed right here in the Rocket City. It only takes about 30 minutes in a salon, and it can turn any frown upside down. It's called a blow dry bar.
"Blow dry bar is where you can come in and get your hair shampooed, conditioned, and blown dry either for an evening night, for work, after you leave the gym and before you go to work, whatever the occasion," said Kristie Montiel, the owner of Blown Studio Salon & Blow Dry Bar.
It gives clients an opportunity for a quick hair care pick-me-up when they can't get in with their regular stylist. Or if you are looking for a stylist, you can skip the blow dry bar and use the amenities of the salon. The blow dry bar is fast, affordable, and is the latest trend to storm the South.
"Huntsville's really beginning to grow, there's people from all over moving into Huntsville because of the Arsenal and in large metropolitan cities, blow dry bars are on every corner," said Montiel.
Obviously we had to try it out for ourselves so WHNT News 19's Megan Hayes volunteered. The lovely staff at Blown Studio spent a quick 30 minutes shampooing, conditioning, and blowing our her hair into a super trendy hairstyle.
Montiel said so far, the feedback from the blow dry bar has been positive. "The response is awesome, people are really excited about it, they're interested in it and they're starting to take advantage of the opportunity," she said.
The blow dry bar is a flat fee of $29. For more information on the salon's services, check out their website here.
