Visit Blo Blow Dry Bar St. Pete with Me

gabrielle troyer visits blow blowdry bar in downtown st petersburg for a blowout

Hi, my name is Gabrielle Troyer and I am addicted to blowouts… but, I think it’s ok – I think this is an obsession that doesn’t hurt anyone. Yes, that was a TikTok reference – I am trying to really keep up with the times. Youthful references aside, I do love a good blowout. For those of you who may not have experienced the sheer glory of a blowout, a blowout is when you go to a hair salon and instead of cutting and coloring your hair, you simply get your hair washed, dried, and professionally styled. The dream? I think so. Let’s visit Blo Blow Dry Bar together!

Blo Blow Dry Bar located right downtown at 920 Central Ave, St. Petersburg, Florida and is here to make your hair dreams come true. There are a few amazing places to get a blowout in the St. Pete area – another reason to love this city!

I’ve gone to Blo a few times this year and each time, safety was their number one priority. Masks are required during your service and temperature checks are done when you walk in. From that point on, the only thing you have to worry about is picking a style from their menu!

Getting a Blowout: The Process

After temp checks, you are introduced to a stylist who will sit down with you and ask you a few questions. Questions may range from what type of style did you have in mind, to what is your typical hair care routine. After you have reviewed and selected a hairstyle, it’s off to the races to the shampoo sinks!

Normally, when I stop in for a blowout, I book the base blowout which includes a wash and style (always a winner). However, if you’re wanting to give your locks a little added TLC, consider booking some enhancements. I recently came in for a hair treatment and could not believe how soft my hair was afterwards.

After your shampoo – you take a towel head selfie and then it’s time to be blown (away).

Your stylist will start meticulously brushing and drying your hair until you’re ready for one of those giant fans that models have when they walk down the runway. (At least that’s how I always feel afterward.)

That’s it! I always love the smell of the products they use (all items are by UNITE) and leave your hair smelling salon-fresh.

Whether you are getting ready for a special event, or just want an afternoon self-care pick-me-up, consider treating yourself to an afternoon at Blo.

Blowout FAQ’s (Basically all of the questions I had)

How do I book a service? You can book online here, or you can call them at 727 954 8292 to make an appointment.

How much does a blowout cost? The final cost of your visit is determined by what services you select. A base blowout without any hair care enhancement is $45.

Can I get a blowout with extensions? Yes! If you have bonded extensions, just select that option when booking and you are good to go. I will note there is an increase in price for those with extensions.

Is there champagne? If you’re asking this question, you are my people. Blo does not offer champagne – HOWEVER, you are more than welcome to bring your own beverages to make things special. (True story, I recently brought my friend for her first blowout and made it even better by bringing some bubbly and a bucket of ice.)

How long does a blowout last? So, this 100% can be different for everyone. The life of your blowout also depends on what you booked. For example, I had booked a service before a special event and requested heavy hairspray for the evening. So – I had to wash that out the next day. However, when I normally go, I can keep mine looking good with proper care (a brush and dry shampoo) for about 4 days or so.

Does Blo offer other services? Yes! In addition to blowouts and hair treatments, they have a full makeup station ready to give you the full transformation before your next event or shoot. Makeup services can also be booked over the phone or online – Reina will take excellent care of you!
