A striking brunette walks into a Northern Virginia (blowout) bar. What happens next?
Trick question. There was no such place.
Until now. Fashion entrepreneur Samira Atash, who recently moved back to her hometown from New York City, has opened FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar. (That stands for Flowing Locks of Winsomeness, in case you were wondering.)
The pink salon services an octet of choices — from loose and wavy Calypso to Wispy for those with bangs — by stylists trained under Prada-favorite Teddi Cranford. Each costs only $35.
But the good times don’t stop when the dryer does. Swing by the threading station to tidy up brows, get dolled up with organic makeup (Vapour Organic Beauty, Tarte), and play up peepers with a strip lash application.
Can’t get enough? There are monthly memberships of two or four blowouts, and Atash’s team even makes house calls.
FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar, 11700 Plaza America Drive, suite 130, Reston (571-375-2347 or flowblowdrybar.com).
