The Blowout Story…
Portland’s first and only Blow Dry Bar opened its doors on December 2, 2010, bringing hair bliss to Portland. The goal… well if hair had a heaven, this would be it. Today, we know life isn’t just about the occasional gala event, so Blowout is open every day; coffee dates, work meetings, or simply the start of a new week seemed good cause for a visit to Blowout. Of course we are the obvious first stop on a Girls’ Night Out (at least one worth talking about in the morning). To suit many moods (and you’re entitled to each and every one) our six styles were designed to range from flirty, to sophisticated, to just plain HOT.
Blowout is now Portland’s exclusive Blow Dry Bar. Blowout is all about great blowout style – it’s faster, more affordable, and so much more fun than a typical salon. Our Stylistas are masters of the round brush, queens of the blow dryer – and their mission is to make women fabulous inside and out.
Let’s face it, bad hair days blow.
Thankfully, Blowout is here to end them, forever!

What if I am running late?
We can’t wait to blow you away! In order to avoid any scheduling problems, we ask that you please arrive 5 minutes prior to your appointment to allow for check-in. If you are 10 minutes late for your appointment, you may be subject to a dry style and/or we may need to reschedule your appointment.
I see a service fee on my bill, what is that?
Blowout uses a service fee structure to compensate its employees and ensure fabulous service with fabulous stylistas. We charge an 18% service charge in lieu of tipping. Our staff will receive the full amount as wages on their check. We are committed to everyone on our team making $15 or more immediately, instead of following the schedule as laid out in the Oregon Plan.

I have a large party can I get a group discount?
Blowout loves to throw a good party! It does require some extra time to manage each style and accommodate add on services. We are unable to offer groups a discount, but we will do our very best to keep you on schedule and get you to your event on time!
I am a bride. What are the fees for bridal hair and makeup?
Blowout takes great pride in not charging extra for brides. We only charge for extra time. So if you choose a 45 minute style it is menu price. If you do an updo, it is menu price. Need a little extra time $40/30 minutes, and you can primp to blowfection!
Need to add a clip or veil? $5.
Can I bring my own hair product?
Sure thing! We have fabulous blowout products. We have $10 or $20 add on, Top Shelf products from Davines, Living Proom, Moroccan Oil and Kevin Murphy. If those don’t work for you, then please feel free to bring your fave!
