    Amazing experience, very professional and talented staff!


    I booked with Blo Homewood for my wedding party and I can’t rave enough about my experience. The owner coordinated the services and the team came to our location to glam me, the bride, my 8 bridesmaids, my mother in law and my mom. They arrived on time, were extremely professional and made us all look super gorgeous! I did do a consult for bridal hair and makeup prior to my wedding day and that helped seal in the look! I really appreciate the entire team effort to make my day memorable, stress free and simply beautiful!

    Wonderful!

    I’ve used blow for several events and services like showers, and as a guest at a wedding. The stylists are great, professional and do an amazing job!

    Nightmare experience

    Based on my recent experience, I strongly do NOT recommend Blo Blow Dry Bar for your bridal party services. I had seven in total and I found working with Afsheen (the owner) to be difficult and her professional flexibility lacking.

    It felt like a stickup. Prior to my wedding, we agreed that I would pay 50% deposit for her services and the remainder 50% after her services were rendered.

    I communicated that my MIL + SIL wanted blowouts on Saturday when her team chased me for them. I offered to explore alternate solutions to give them that "blow-out" look. I can only prove with text receipts that I offered to bring any tools onsite, but we discussed coming into the salon to make this happen over the phone.

    However, Afsheen was not flexible or accommodating with us AT ALL. It was at this moment (on the night before my wedding while I was at my rehearsal dinner) that she demanded the remaining 50% total be paid by 5pm that evening. She set a timer. If I did not Venmo her in time, I would not receive my 50% deposit back that I had already paid.

    This whole thing felt like a money grab. Brides, here are few more things to consider before deciding to Blo your Big Day: It's $125 per service & the hair options are weakkkk for what I consider a HAIR salon. That price means no updo, no braid, no blow out for $125 + a "contractually mandatory 20% tip". So what do they do for $125? For a place that prides itself on it's blow-outs, it's only a flat iron and a curling iron - a blow dryer is not considered a hot tool.

    Additionally, Afsheen decided at this time to up-charge my 12-year-old sister's makeup as an adult, even though she had quoted me an express charge of $75 previously.

    Ultimately, how Afsheen handled this situation left me feeling chaotic the night before my wedding. Family members involved described their experience with Blo as inappropriate, unprofessional, and shocking. I wouldn't do this again.

    Hi Tavi, We have contracts in place to ensure all services are delivered perfectly and on time by the right services providers. Just as with your bridal services, contracts were finalized weeks in advance with pricing and services requested. Last-minute (night before) changes or requests are difficult, sometimes impossible when you are working with hair and makeup artists, but we are so glad we were able to arrange for stylists and accommodate you, as long as the extra fees incurred by the business were covered. Blow outs, updos, special occasion styling, makeup is our expertise, and we deliver what is requested and contracted with us. We are regretful that you felt our pricing was high but also extremely happy that our team did a fantastic job on delivering what was contracted and glamming everyone up. We wish you a happy marriage.
