I’ve seen so many blow-dry bars popping up around Orange County and have always wondered what they were all about. I’ve always wanted to try one to see if it’d work on my hair but have always been too scared. You guys, my hair is ROUGH. It’s thick, curly, kinky and nappy altogether. Plus, being a mom it’s pretty rare that I 1. have time to do my hair and 2. rarely want to do my hair when I DO have time.
Often when I get “me” time it’s important that I maximize the time, because time is so precious these days. One of my favorite things to do is go to the salon. Whether it be getting my nails done, eyebrows done or hair. This is actually very rare that I ever get to do these things, but hey….when I do…this Mama SLAYS.
I recently got the chance to visit Blown Away Beauty Bar in Laguna Niguel and receive my first blowout EVER. Blown Away Beauty Bar is extremely courteous of your time and wants to ensure that while you’re there, you’re being pampered, feel relaxed and come out of the salon looking and feeling empowered. I can definitely say that that’s EXACTLY how I felt while there and when I left.
One word to describe this beauty bar is Fabulous. When you walk in you’re immediately greeted by beautiful purple chandeliers on the ceilings, flowy white draping, and the sound of blow-dryers, bubbly conversations, and awesome 90s throwback jams. Well, at least that’s the playlist they were playing while I was there…and it was fantastic.
Did I mention they have complimentary champagne? So if you didn’t already feel relaxed after getting your scalp massaged and your hair washed under the “Dream” chandelier, you can also sip champagne during your visit. Now that’s my kind of mommy “me” time right there!

My drylist, Casey, was phenomenal. She was so sweet and kind. I loved learning about her story and why she loves what she does. I think I said, “Are you freaking kidding me” about a million times when I saw how she transformed my hair. It looked AMAZING. I couldn’t believe it. On that note, all of the ladies at the salon were extremely nice, personable and outgoing. I’m pretty sure all of them smiled the entire time I was there. That truly says something about the atmosphere there and that they truly love what they do and
On that note, all of the ladies at the salon were extremely nice, personable and outgoing. The whole time I was there I felt a sense of creativity and passion from the drylists.
The beauty doesn’t stop there. Blown Away Beauty Bar not only provides stunning blowouts for all hair types and occasions, the salon can also provide special treatments, hair extensions, apply makeup, lash extensions, and even waxing services (brows, cheek, nose, chin, lip).
But wait, there’s more! Can’t make it to the salon? Well, the salon will come to you! Known as their “In-Home Blown,” Drylists will come to your house with their supplies and some bubbly and pamper you in the comfort of your own home!
This place is truly a dream. It’s perfect for the mama that needs a moment to sit and just be (inserts raising hand emoji here), for a bachelorette activity, an event where you need your hair and makeup done, a bridal party, Mother’s day, birthdays. These are just a few ideas. It’s truly great for any occasion.
