Blowtique Gets a Ponytail and Bun Bar

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We're partial to spots decked with gold-leather fixtures and twinkly chandeliers, so it doesn't take much urging to get us in a Blowtique salon chair. Now, we have another excuse to stop by the Gold Coast spot. Two excuses, actually: buns and ponytails.

The new ponytail and bun bar provides styles for fall galas and holiday parties (and, heck, Sunday-afternoon football parties, if that's your thing.) Messy buns, topknots, twisted ponytails, and more are on offer, and services go for $10 to $35 a pop. If you like a little color, you can toss on a free hair ribbon or have your tresses chalked. But don't get too comfy in that golden chair: the services only take ten to 15 minutes.
