A Chat with Belo Blow Dry Bar
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Belo Blow Dry Bar is Laguna Beach’s only blow dry bar. Sip a glass of complimentary champagne and get beautiful hair, braids, or up-dos. We use only the best Kevin Murphy and EVO hair care products. Customers leave our chic salon feeling relaxed and beautiful!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The blowout trend has hit the West Coast. As professional hairstylist, I appreciate a good blowout. As a Laguna Beach resident, I got tired of driving to Newport Beach for a blowout, so I decided to open a salon in downtown Laguna Beach.
What do you love most about your job?
I love making people feel beautiful, which is where the inspiration for our name came from: ‘Belo’ means beautiful in Portuguese.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Honestly, we haven’t had any bad feedback so far. Recently, one of our regulars said, “I’m obsessed with your salon, I haven’t washed my own hair in two weeks!” In just four months we have built a steady stream of regular customers who come in 2–3 times per week!
