While I was away for the summer, I received an invite to the Dallas launch party for Blownaway App. I was unable to make it, but was curious about this new service. Blownaway App is a Dallas based on-demand beauty service. Once you download the app, you are able to book blowouts, makeup application, and spray tanning appointments easily from your phone. (You can also book services online.) The best part about it is that they will come to you; at your home, office, gym, or other location of your choice. Fast forward a couple of months, and I decided to give it a try. I did not have a special event to get ready for, but I just wanted to try it out for future reference!
First, I will say that the app was very easy to use. Basically, you choose the type of service you would like; hair, makeup, or spray tanning, then there are options within each category. If you don’t see an option you like, you can choose “Custom” and then you can decide on a style that is perfect for you. Next, you choose the time, specify a location, and you’re set! Services are paid through the app, so you don’t have to even think about that on the day of the appointment. Very convenient!
I booked my appointment for a Saturday, after my workout at The Move Project. I had plans that afternoon to attend a mom/daughter get-together with Marisa for her dance team. It was a casual event, but I was happy to have someone come to do my hair/makeup! I’ll be the first to tell you that I hate to blow-dry my hair, so I jump at any opportunity to have a stylist do it for me. On the day of my appointment, Daisy, my Blownaway stylist arrived promptly. She was super friendly and asked me what my preferences were, then she got to work on my hair. I asked for smooth and sleek, and I was very pleased with the blowout she gave me. The next day, my hair still looked and felt great, I just had to freshen it up a tiny bit. For my makeup, we decided to go for a natural look. I loved the colors Daisy used on me and was happy with the application.
All in all, it was a great experience, easy and convenient. And, I loved my hair and makeup! Can’t wait to use Blownaway for a night out. It is a total time-saver, because they come to you! I can think of many occasions that this service would be perfect for…holiday parties, date nights, birthday parties, girls night out, and other special events. Marisa, who is 11, was also browsing the app and finding hairstyles that she liked. It would be a fun treat for someone her age, too! If you sign up for their mailing list, you will get $10 off your first appointment. Plus, keep up with them on social media for special offers and discounts…links below.
