Lakeview's Aveda paradise, Gordon Salon on Clark one block north of Belmont is hosting a blow-dry-a-thon this week. The best part isn't that each blow-out is only $20, nor is the best part the free hand and shoulder massages. The best part (only to be out-shined by the cookie bar) is that all profits from the blow-dry-a-thon are donated directly to the Alliance of the Great Lakes, a network of scientists, teachers and volunteers into preserving that big natural resource you go swimming in each summer.
You can have great looking hair for $20 and helping Lake Michigan stay clean from 4PM-9PM this Friday, but only by appointment. As of this afternoon, there were a few spots open around 7PM but the bulk of available chairs is between 4PM and 6:30 and they're filling up quickly. If you miss this one or live in the 'burbs, Gordon Salon in Wilmette is having blow-dry-a-thons on Friday April 19 and April 26.
