What do we get now? A blow-dry boutique. Based right here in the Windy City and leasing space next to Ikram on Huron, Blowtique will open June 2. You can get any look ranging from big-body curls to a sleek high gloss or anywhere in between.
Irish-born founder of Blowtique, Fiona McEntee, along with her mother, an experienced beauty pro will charge only $35 per blowout challenging the price of a mani/pedi. Each treatment lasts 35 minutes and includes a shampoo, blow-dry, styling with a flat iron or curling iron, and can last for more than a week.
