I consider going to a salon, getting a shampoo and a blow dry a luxury. It’s probably one of my favorite luxuries too.
I get lazy when it comes to fixing my hair, so having someone do it for me: shampoo + head massage + blow dry to perfection = a must.
Where else should someone like me go for this service but to the experts!
Enter Blo Blow Dry Bar. The first Blow Dry Bar in North America has finally reached our shores!
Located at the P1 level of Powerplant Mall (across Mercury Drug) you can’t miss this for it’s a vision of (hot) pink and white.
I instantly fell in love with the place (I know, i’m a very typical girl, but wtv). It’s so girly, pretty and fabulous!
The place is immaculate! In an instant I knew that i’m in for a treat (for my hair). Kinda like a candy store, but for women.
The bloers (session stylists) greeted my friends and I the moment we entered, and ushered us into our seats.
They served us (pink) wine and desserts and gave us the “hair menu”so we can choose a hair style.
You’re not cheating on your hairdresser.
The blo concept? “No cuts, no color: Just WASH BLOW and GO.”
Blo is open from 9am – 9pm on weekdays and 9am – 10pm on weekends. They accomodate appointments as early as 7am, as long as you book in advance.
Hair Cadets (what they fondly call their clients) can choose from 7 different styles (from classic to rock) all for Php 500.

They offer bridal packages and they teamed up with several caterers and events planners so they can offer clients the full package. They also do bachelorettes, theme parties, special events etc.
We had a little chat with the owner, Howard Chua and according to him, they plan to open 4 branches this year (the one in Serendra is now open).
Most of the staff they have are already experienced in the salon industry, but they want to make sure that they have the best, so they got trained hairdressers from the US to train all (13) staff.
Each branch will have a “style boss” making sure that the “bloers” complete a service within 30 minutes or less.
Since Blo is a niche category, they want to offer the best and the most efficient service to their clients.
“There is a science behind all of it…” according to Mr. Chua. Apparently, before they open the store, they have to make sure the pressure of the water is just right, because something so little may affect the efficiency of the staff and the service.
“It’s not just the service we’re looking for, but the whole experience.”
And what an experience we got.
