Settle into a chair at the Blow-Out Bar, the Braid Bar, or the Bun Bar for a red-carpet look. All bars feature a free consultation, and there’s no appointment needed.
THE BLOW-OUT BAR
Let someone else do it, and often. The Blow-Out Bar at Salon Beverly came to town last October. Clients can get in and out in 30 minutes, with a quick and stylish blow dry for any important date or meeting. For $30 (which includes a shampoo and a complimentary beverage), book a different stylist each time to try new looks, or stay with a fave. Plus, they’ll come to your home or office (with dry shampoo). This service is the new status symbol in many big cities, and a professional blow-dry will help color and/or extensions last much longer.

THE BRAID BAR
Stop in Ivy Salon & Spa for the Waterfall, Side Braid, or Fishtail, and you’ll get a feminine, fuss-free look. Prices start at $25 (which includes shampoo, blow-dry, and braid). They can also incorporate ribbons, flowers, and other hair ornaments for a custom finish. Choose your look from their extensive Braid Book.
THE BUN BAR
Take a cue from the spring ’13 runways, and you’ll see the bun isn’t just for ballerinas. Either worn high or low on the neck, think simple and elegant— whether it’s tight and sleek or loose and casual. Pop into the Bun Bar for any other of the thirteen looks on the menu. Prices start at $15 and go up to $45, and it takes anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes to get to hair heaven. Showing off a beautiful neck is a bonus.
