With Lollapalooza right around the corner, I teamed up with Blowtique Salon in Chicago to give you guys some major hair inspo for festival season this Summer!
For those of you who don’t know, Blowtique is Chicago’s first blow-out hair salon! This first-of-its-kind salon has evolved into a full-service experience for men and women offering customized haircuts, coloring, and makeup while perfecting an exclusive “brush only” blow-out technique.
They have two gorgeous locations in downtown Chicago – one in the Gold Coast and the other on Michigan Avenue. The Blowtique experience is a must-have for every Chicago woman looking to perfect the hottest hairstyles!
For my hairstyle, I was inspired by my favorite heroine and alter ego, Daenerys Targaryen (Khaleesi) from Game of Thrones. Her hair is GOALS, and I wanted to do a modern twist on her iconic look. I showed my hairstylist, Nikki, a few images of what I wanted, and we got straight to work.
This salon gives you the full VIP treatment! We began by washing my hair and blow drying it for maximum volume and shine. She then used an anti-frizz treatment and shine spray, and curled my hair using a 1 inch barrel. After my hair was fully curled, she French braided the top two sections like a crown and pinned them to the back of my head. From there, she braided the two end pieces, and incorporated an extra few braids down the middle for that full Khaleesi effect.
I was obsessed with the final product!! My hair stayed put all day, and the braid didn’t fall out or get frizzy in the summer humidity. I was really impressed by the quality of the products used in my hair, and the talent of the stylists. If you are looking for a salon to get your hair done for festival season, I would highly recommend Blowtique!
