The problem with getting a blowout in Washington is that if you work downtown, there’s some travel involved—unlike our Virginia, MoCo, and Georgetown neighbors, we don’t have the convenience of a standalone blow-dry salon in our ’hood. That is, until this weekend.

Look out for Blowout Bar, a chic blow-dry concept opening Saturday near Foggy Bottom (just blocks from our office!). In addition to five blowout styles—including Lola (meaning straight with body) and Stella (Hollywood waves)—at a flat rate of $35, the salon will offer updos, conditioning treatments, and house calls.

The girly, blowout-only concept is hardly new to the area. In January, we told you about Reston’s FLOW, and a few months earlier Drybar made its Washington debut—but as far as we know, Blowout Bar is the first of its kind to open downtown.

And it’s already gotten tons of excitement: In its two weeks on Twitter, the salon has already earned 22,000 followers, so our guess is the appointments will fill up super quickly. Luckily, as of today, you can book one online.

Additional opening info has been pretty hush-hush so far, but stay tuned—we’re on top of it.

Blowout Bar. 2134 L St., NW; 202-290-2109. Opens Saturday, March 30.

    no disrespect but this article totally forgot about Release The Blowdry Bar on H st in the Atlas District. Not only is it super convenient but the blowouts lasts....gets this... 3 days!!!! They have a "secret technique" that I have tried to figure out but the crew is super hush about. Just like "darling, don't worry we go it.." And that they do!

    One thing it looks like you've been duped on: they've clearly bought their twitter followers (this is common among trick for businesses trying to build fake buzz). How to spot: click on any of their followers. See that they are only following one business. Just thought you'd like to know for future stories (or this one)...
