Every once in awhile, two people will me at just the right time in their lives. Those two people will share a passion, and if the rest of the world is lucky enough, they’ll create something amazing.
That’s the story behind Amanda Fuller and Raisa Baysal’s journey to creating BlownCity, a blow dry bar. The two met in beauty school, and with pasts in education, they both decided to make their dreams a reality.
“Raisa saw how much passion I had for styling and knew that with both of our skills, we could create the perfect salon,” says Fuller. BlownCity officially opened its doors in Mason on May 2, 2016.
The vision behind BlownCity was to create a place that feels like home for its clients. “Where everyone can walk in the door and feel as if they have been here many times before,” says Fuller. “We are easy-going, everyday gals who just want to share our passion for hair and beauty.”
BlownCity is a blow dry bar that offers a shampoo followed by a stylish blowout of your choice. “A blowout is the gift that keeps on giving,” says Fuller. “You will look fabulous when you leave BlownCity, and professional blown out hair stays in place, so you’ll keep that look for longer than if you’d done it on your own at home. It’s just another perk of leaving it to the professionals.”
In addition to blowouts, every customer is offered a complimentary beverage with each service. Other services offered by BlownCity includes brow design, waxing, haircuts, tone restoring shampoos, and makeup to name a few.
Blowouts range for $25 to $75 depending on the style you’re looking for and your hair type. BlownCity also offers one-on-one classes for $60 to $75. Haircuts for men, women, and children range from $10 to $60, makeup from $14 to $75, and facial waxings from $10 to $12.
BlownCity also does bridal everything, and can be booked for your upcoming nuptials. “Hair, makeup, parties, updo, lashes – you name it, we can do it,” says Fuller.
Searching for a blowout membership? This unique idea is offered by BlownCity, as are blowout packages and even private parties. “We will come to you if you can’t come to us,” adds Fuller. The salon also offers personalized or group classes for braiding, curling, and round brushing, which is a free class if you purchase a hair tool at the salon.
Fuller says the team at BlownCity will go out of their way to make sure customers get what they need and want. “Need a product we don’t carry? We’ll get it for you,” she says. “Need your hair done during closed hours? We will make it happen. Whatever it takes to make our guests happy!”
Fuller says that the team at BlownCity will continue to grow and add services in 2017, adding that they will be offering hair extensions and color services in the coming months.
