I know I can’t last an entire summer with those ‘beach tousled waves” and I know it’s hot (and humid!). But the thought of a scorching hair dryer going at your locks for, let’s say, a mere 15 minutes may not sound so enticing. Now just close your eyes, imagine a beautiful (might I add, air-conditioned) salon on the Upper East Side that specializes in making your hair look bouncy and fabulous no matter how high the humidity. Enter Blow, the New York “Blow Dry Bar.” From now until July 31st, Blow is inviting everyone to enjoy 50% off their signature blow outs in celebration of their new Upper East Side location.

The salon also offers expert cuts, colors, manis/pedis, waxing, deep conditioning and makeup applications. So why not grab a friend, get out of the heat and into a day of pampering. Bring three friends and do a bubbles and blowblow outs and complimentary prosecco. On your way out, be sure to pick up a bottle of their Climate Neutralizer Serum to lock out humidity and prevent frizz for when you try your very best to recreate the blow at home.

WHAT: 50% off blow outs (normally $40-$60 based on hair length and texture)
WHEN: Now through July 31st
WHERE: 843 Lexington Ave. (between 64th & 65th Streets), 2nd Floor, 212.452.0246, www.blowny.com
