Blow dry bars have been popping up all over the country, and luckily for us Houstonians, a woman followed her dream and opened Houston's first luxury blow dry bar: Brush & Blush. If you've been to the others, you will immediately see and feel the difference. This is a business that values their clients and members, the stylists are professional and friendly, the feminine atmosphere can't be beat, and you are sure to leave feeling beautiful (but I promise, you already are).
Brush & Blush graciously hosted some Houston ladies one Sunday morning, and we had the best time!
They only use Living Proof products, so you know your hair will end up looking as perfect as Jennifer Aniston's. Logic.
These white leather chairs are actually massage chairs. Couple that chair with a relaxing head massage, and it was difficult to peel me away.
Oh, and did I mention they are quick to serve you a glass of wine or mimosa as soon as you hit the chair? Meredith, of Cake & Confetti, made these adorable #BrushBlushUncork flags and they were a hit!
Aside from the spa-like pampering, each of us ended up with gorgeous hair. I have worn my hair straight 99.9% of my life, so it was a fun surprise to look in the mirror and see curls and the exact hairstyle I've always wanted to try.
After our blowouts, we had two makeup lessons: smoky eye and contouring.
I sat in on the contouring class because this technique fascinates me. In the beginning, you look like a clown, and then it magically blends into ladylike chiseled cheek bones. Where you put the darker makeup and highlights are dependent upon your face shape, so it's best to go in for your own personal tutorial. Both ladies ended up with quite the face for Sunday errands!
That's Greer above. She was a nurse in a previous life, then finally decided to pursue her passion and opened up Brush & Blush just last June. Go in and support her!
As someone who tries to spend as little time as possible in hair salons, after my Sunday blowout, I had already booked an appointment for the following Friday evening (the SPWP casino night required big hair). I was in and out in 45 minutes, and my stylist was actually early for my appointment. Can't beat that.
Executive presence plays a key role in determining if you are chosen for a leadership position within your organization. Like it or not, the way you present yourself at work is a factor. Brush & Blush makes it simple to pull off a polished look that can be the cherry on top of your impressive list of qualifications and achievements.
Additionally, it's the place to go for a flawless look before a special event or date night, as well as for a fun time with your girlfriends. Special thanks to Greer, Brandon, and the entire team at Brush & Blush for a wonderful morning!
