Blowouts: Hot Air with a Purpose
Sure, you can blow-dry your hair at home, but it likely won’t be quite the same as a salon blowout. Find out why with Groupon’s look into the blowout’s sleek mystique.
There’s something like old-time alchemy going on every time someone gets a blowout. Take a couple of elemental ingredients—wind and heat—combine them with a professional’s trained hand and strong wrist, and you end up with something precious: movie-star hair. The actual process is simple: the stylist washes the hair, then blow-dries it in small sections to the client’s specifications, often using a round brush to create smooth volume. The result might be straight, wavy, or purposely tousled, and it can be such a look changer that some women refrain from washing their hair for days afterward to maintain the glamour. Many people find the service so valuable they return to the salon for it between haircuts, sometimes several times a week.
In some ways, this practice is a throwback to the beauty parlors of the past, where women would drop in weekly to have their hair styled and set. Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis used to get her hair blown out three times a week in the 1960s and 1970s; today, reportedly, so do celebs such as Kate Middleton and Gwyneth Paltrow. To keep up with demand, blowout-only salons have popped up in the last few years, dedicating all their chairs to the service.
Water, wood, stone, and steel. These earthy materials create the physical foundation of Serenity Salon & Spa as a chic beauty haven. As clients take on their treatments, visions of white-porcelain shampoo bowls and wooden styling stations lead to indoor water fountains flowing amid the spa’s country French–themed décor. Pops of color come courtesy of bright-red styling chairs, where clients await the talents of Level 1 and Level 2 stylists as they cut, color, psychoanalyze, and style tresses with Bumble and bumble products. The upstairs spa area—connected to the downstairs salon by a floating staircase—creates a tranquil space for aestheticians to rejuvenate complexions with SkinCeuticals products during facials, chemical peels, and microdermabrasion sessions. As the aesthetic crew works to make clients feel confident, massage therapists ease their sore muscles and stressed minds with customized modalities, including a hot-stone massage that uses stones infused with floral essential oil.

Celestial Space Medi-Spa straddles the line between Eastern and Western healing philosophies, marrying the former’s energy-centered principles to the latter’s focus on therapeutic relaxation. The spa’s menu of services features various massage modalities alongside less expected therapies such as guided meditation, visualization, and emotional-healing workshops. Yoga classes work in conjunction with these sessions to block out toxins and bad vibes, and special events such as the Women's Evening of Decadence and Relaxation—recently profiled on News 12—steer the focus back to traditional spa indulgences such as wine, chocolate, and barbershop quartets crooning harmonized renditions of whale songs.
