Having frizzy, unkempt hair can make you appear disoriented and unhinged during job interviews, first dates, and shouting matches with the neighbor's bush. Keep it together with today's Groupon: for $21, you get the blowout luscious service, which includes a wash, blow-dry, and style at Blowout, A Blow Dry Bar (a $42 value).
At this 12th Avenue blow-dry bar, a team of licensed stylists puts their follicle-finishing skills to good use by curing bad hair days seven days a week. The blowout luscious service begins as a stylist washes and rubs down the head’s unwieldy follicle forest using a scrumptious vanilla-bean deep-conditioning treatment as the neck and scalp are treated to a tension-releasing, loose-change-expunging massage. Once cleaned, conditioned, and coddled, manes get magnificently made over with a thorough blow-dry that leaves hair as thick, shiny, and velvety smooth as the most beautiful of head puddings before strands are sculpted into one of six elegant up- or- down ‘dos.
With sleek, silver finishings, modular décor, and plush, tufted seating, this Pearl District beauty bar is amply equipped for any girl's night out or polishing party. Take advantage of the easy online appointment booker, as reservations—and ownership of at least one head––are required for service.

Blowout, a Blow Dry Bar
Named one of Lucky magazine's Best Blowout Bars in the Country, Portland's only blow-dry bar leaves the scissors to the salons and instead focuses on its clients' everyday styling needs. Seven days a week, stylists stand ready with blow dryers and round brushes in hand to prep clients for big dates, special occasions, work meetings, or trips to the area's most exclusive hardware stores. Blowout services include a wash, blow-dry, and one of six signature styles, such as soft loose curls or a half updo. To create a one-of-a-kind look, the staff at Blowout, a Blow Dry Bar, also can add temporary streaks of color or braid hair, and makeup artists can freshen up lips and lashes for a quick makeover on the go.
