Mpls Gets a Blow Dry Bar

February 13th, 2012
by Allison Kaplan

Minneapolis is finally getting a blow dry bar–two, actually. A pair of local entrepreneurs have signed leases to open Blast Blow Dry Bar at the Shops at West End in St. Louis Park and Aloft hotel in downtown Minneapolis.  Like the blow dry bars that have become popular on the coasts, Blast will stick to a simple regimen: wash, blow dry, style, for $35. They don’t want to replace your salon, rather, become a destination before events, or even as part of a weekly routine (ah, dreamy), where you can “Blast in, blow out” in 45 minutes or less.

The owners are not stylists, but they’ve hired manages with extensive salon experience and plan to employ experienced stylists from salons around town on a part time basis. They’re also planning their own product line. Blast will open this spring.

Their ads are about to start showing up around town…
