This week, I had the opportunity to visit Parlor Blow Dry Bar for my first blowout experience, and it's official. I'm in love. Owners Emily and Allison have created a relaxed and fun atmosphere, and when I walked in the door, I was greeted with a drink menu and the perfect waiting area. 

My stylist discussed what we were going to do with my hair -- a signature blowout. During the wash process, I was able to prop my feet up and unwind for a few minutes before we moved over to the styling station, which is complete with mint hair dryers, might I add. Atmosphere is everything to me when I'm receiving beauty services, and the vibe at Parlor is so classy and relaxed, complete with white chairs that give off a vintage vibe. It's everything you could want from an experience.

Parlor uses Bumble and bumble products, which I now need filling my bathroom cabinets. My hair felt so revitalized, smooth, and smelled great, too. The signature blowout was truly a pampering experience -- it was an hour of nothing but styling, which is an hour well spent. I headed to a casual dinner with a friend after -- nothing fancy -- but I felt great from my midweek pick-me-up. A blowout isn't just for the weekend or special occasion; it's great Monday through Thursday as well.

Parlor is also introducing their new beauty bar -- what's better than a place where you can a fresh style and a makeup refresh? Through October, you can visit Parlor and receive a $30 makeup application on Thursdays and Fridays -- perfect for a girls day or night out! And if you think you'll be visiting Parlor more often than not, they are also offering a new membership program, where you can receive two blowouts a month for only $58, and the perks don't stop there!

If you're from Raleigh{or even just visiting}, you have to give Parlor Blow Dry Bar a try. It is going to be my go-to for the perfect style from here on out. Parlor is also offering 10% off all blowouts with the code SOUTHERNSTYLE now through October 30th if you stop in Monday through Thursday. Visit Parlor Blow Dry Bar for the gorgeous strands that you're always wanting.
