 A new salon is ready to blow Southlake away: Blo Blow Dry Bar will debut in the Park Village Shopping Center on Friday, April 8 — just in time for cute family Easter pics and that all-important prom season.

Touted as "North America’s original blow dry bar franchise," the salon will be located at 1161 E. Southlake Blvd. #284. It will offer five signature hair styles, a la carte options, several different hair treatments, plus five signature makeup looks and a new section of customized looks, according to a release.

For a limited time after opening, the salon will offer a discounted rate for its signature Mane Squeeze Membership, which includes two blowouts a month for $75, $5 off each additional blow out, and 10 percent off retail.

The new Blo is owned and operated by local entrepreneurs Tiffany Douglass and Maria Vanegas, who bring business and philanthropic backgrounds to the new venture. According to the release, Douglass, a CPA, co-founded a charity called Go Blue for Clean Water in 2012. She also owned a small business called Fashion HP. Vanegas, a veteran of the hair industry, owns a social media business called Elegancia Sin Límites (Elegance Without Limits).

"They both are firm believers in empowering women to feel good about themselves and be happy," says the release.

The Southlake location will be the owners' first Blo bar, which currently has about 140 locations across the United States and Canada.

“We both feel deeply connected to the Blo brand and align with their mission,” say Douglass and Vanegas in the release. “We are excited to offer the Southlake community a unique blow out bar where guests can look and feel their best with a quick visit. Not only will we offer an extraordinary experience for all guests, but for our employees as well. It’s a privilege to be a part of the Blo Blow Dry Bar family.”

To mark the grand opening, salon guests will be able to purchase one blowout for $34 from April 8 through April 17.

Regular hours will be 9 am-7 pm Monday through Saturday and 9 am-5 pm Sunday. For more information and reservations, visit the website or call 817-230-4519.
