I visited Blow Ltd last night to try out the brand new 15 minutes to glow treatment and a make-up look. This was my first time at Blow and I was really excited to go and see what it was all about. I've read a lot about New York having fast beauty places and seen some other blow dry bars around but not anywhere that combined all of the treatments. You can get your hair, nails, make-up and lashes done at warp speed in time for a night out or meeting, they'll even steam your dress while you're getting glammed up. What a genius idea.
There are 9 blow dry types to choose from, 3 make-up looks (Day, Night, Party) which you can mix and match if you like the eye look of one face and the lipstick of another and 3 different nails looks. The products they use are available to buy as well, with no hard sell. If you can't make it to the salon check out www.blowltd.com
I think fast beauty is great as while spa treatments and massages are a lovely relaxing treat that can't go on long enough, having your hair blow dried or your nails painted or your make-up done for an event just needs to be done as fast as possible, places to go and people to see darling! If you're going out after work this is the ideal place or even if you just need the treatments doing but only have an hours lunch break to spare, this means you can fit everything into your busy life.
For my make-up look I chose the eyes from the day look and red lips from the party look. This involves the gorgeous Joeur tinted moisturiser (I am shade #2) and Lord and Berry's red lip crayon.
Before my make-up was applied I was treated to the new 15 minutes to glow treatment which involves a cleanse, facial massage, mask and a hand massage with This Works products, the mask specifically used is the new This Works, No Wrinkles Time Dose Mask which is amazing and makes your skin look smooth and plump.
I think the concept is a brilliant idea and plan to book in for my make-up to be done before my birthday party next month.
