birthday blowout

Alba Beauty Studio blowoutThis past Friday, we had some friends over to celebrate my birthday.  Did you all know it was my birthday last week?  Anyway, it was really nice!  A handful of sweet friends and family came over to eat, drink, and be merry, and it was an absolute blast.  Above are some dear girlies who lasted the longest, god love em!

But the real treat came that afternoon when I got a blowout at Cincy Organic Stylebar, which is an affiliate of Alba Organic Beauty Studio.  For those unfamiliar, a blowout is a hair wash and styling using only a blow dryer, so no direct heat, leaving your hair silky and bouncy for days on end.  When I was put in contact with Andrea (a fellow Notre Dame alum!), I let her know that she answered my prayers.  I’ve been dying for a blowout ever since I started growing out my hair.  Hallelujah.

When you sit down for your blowout, you get to pick the style you’d like, and my girl Kassey and I decided on full curls rolling away from my face.  Goodness did she deliver (see the gorgeous locks below).  I felt like a beauty queen upon my completion and it also felt just so dang good as she was brushing my mane out.  Kassey should have been given a heads up that I have triple the amount of hair on my head than a normal person, so it would have been a good idea to do an extra push up that morning to get through my do.  But she was a sport about it and I reaped the benefits.

I highly recommend the blowout and I highly recommend this studio.  They literally offer everything – full service salon, blowouts, make up, manis, pedis, spray tans, massages, facials, bridal needs – the works.  And their space is adorable.  Fun fact, Andrea’s husband built most of their furniture.  Seriously?  These people are unstoppable.

Thanks Cincy Organic Stylebar and Kassey for the great blowout!
