My Experience of BloBar- India's First Only Blow Dry Bar!

Located right next to the Defence Bakery, BloBar is India's first blow dryer bar only. Everybody knew about this place even before its doors opened. This was because this bar wanted to create out of the simple concept of having a girls' club where you can either come and look ravishing with your girl friends or make new friends along with getting your hair done. They have mainly 8 hairstyles and all of them are named after cocktails (yes, you read it right!) The best part is that with every blow dryer, you get a complimentary mocktail/coffee.

As soon as I took the stairs, I was greeted with pictures of family, friends and every other person who helped in making BloBar happen. My first thought about the place was that it is so pretty and neat (not something you usually find in other parlors). The space was big enough to accommodate 15-20 people and work on 8-9 people's hair at once.






I had been wanting to pay the BloBar a visit ever since it opened but because of some thing or the other, I was never really able to go. After hearing tons about this place and seeing their work on my sister's hair, I was adamant to go here whenever I next wanted to get my hair done. The perfect opportunity came when I planned the Dressing Up for Work shoot. On the day of the shoot, I canceled every other plan I had for the day and headed to the BloBar. Sargam, the owner of BloBar was super sweet. It's a good feeling when you feel welcomed at a place and she definitely nails it when it comes to hospitality. She chatted with me for a while and then asked Umair to take it forward from there.
Umair first washed my hair and then used conditioner. He made sure that my hair was fresh and perfectly prepped for the blow dryer. Before starting with the blow dryer, I walked him through the concept of my shoot. He suggested a few hairdos and we settled on keeping it simple but with volume on the crown section. He used hair spray to make my hair look heavy and used a round brush to give curls on the end. I told him that the shoot will take an entire evening so I want something that will stay. He worked beautifully and made sure that I got exactly what I asked for. While he was working on my hair, Umair gave me a few tips on what else I can do to take care of my hair. It took Umair just 15 minutes to do my blow dry my hair and the outcome was just breath taking!


I loved how beautiful my hair turned out after the process was completed. Oh, and these curls lasted till the next day (curls never last on my hair for more than 3 hours, you guys!) This gem of a place is definitely on the top of my list and I'm soon going to go back here to try on different blow dryers.
