When they were starting out, the team of licensed cosmetologists at Blo & Glo Style Bar made the decision to do one thing and do it really well. They've succeeded, and clients now come from all over to indulge in their signature service: a simple wash, blow-dry, and style.
While their focus may be narrow, their repertoire is far from limited. They can transform lifeless strands into everything from tight curls to gentle waves, and treatment add-ons include massages and deep-conditioning treatments. Kids can even get in on the fun with glitter treatments that make them reflective enough to easily locate in a crowded mall.
