Good news Houstonians, your new best friend has just moved into the Lamar/River Oaks Shopping Center. Opening tomorrow, The Blow Dry Bar, will be making your life easier one appointment at a time.

Native Houstonian and experienced salon professional, Rebecca Tallerine, wanted to open a business that was a "tangible, affordable luxury" and I think she's right on the money with this one. The concept is one that we've been needing in Houston (or really hot, humid South Texas) for quite a while: "Wash, Blow and Go" as they like to say. At only $35 a blowout and $55 for an updo, the stylists will have you out in 30-45 minutes. If you think you're going to be a regular, you can buy a monthly membership of two or four blowouts and receive a discount or just stop by for a walk-in appointment.

 As you can see from the photos above, the salon is decked in light wood floors, smooth white walls, and beautiful peacock blue accents. Hop on over to the bar and choose from the cocktail menu of mixed 'dos, with apropos names like Shaken (wavy & messy), Neat (classic, smooth, sleek with body), and With a Twist (an updo), all while relaxing in the soft white leather chairs and enjoying a complimentary cocktail and an old movie (HD TV's will be screening hits like Pretty Woman and Breakfast at Tiffany's).

This is one local bar that you'll leave refreshed and revived with no potential regret the morning after!
