We obviously love blowouts here at Park Avenue. But there’s way more benefits to the service than just not having to wash your own hair (which, let’s be honest, is pretty great in and of itself). Our salon coordinator, Lindsay Viker, decided to see just what it is about blowouts that have our Arcadia women coming into the salon regularly for the service.
I was heading to Vegas for my 21st birthday, and knew I would want to spend more time gambling and partying than doing my hair. So, the day before I left, I got a blowout at the salon. Here are some of the great products they used, all of which I could have purchased if I was going on a longer trip. I did pick up a travel size of the Fresh.Hair, Kevin Murphy’s dry shampoo, to prevent my hair from getting greasy during my trip.

Even after waking up at 6 a.m. and driving 6 hours, my hair was still looking fabulous as we checked into the Cosmopolitan Hotel on the Vegas strip. After a quick outfit change, mom and I headed down to the casino and the fun began. Having my hair look nice with such minimal effort was so nice. I got to go out and experience Vegas instead of sitting in the hotel room with a flat iron.
Day 2 ~ The Cosmopolitan Casino
After a very, very late night, I woke up in the morning and wanted nothing more than a cup of coffee and some sunshine (I needed a change from the dimly lit casinos). My parents wanted to wake up early for breakfast, and were shocked at how fast I got ready.
Day 3 ~ The Bellagio
“Your hair still looks perfect!” my mom commented. She wanted to know what magic trick I had learned to avoid doing my hair in the morning. “It’ll look like this for 4 days,” I told her. “All I have to do is use this dry shampoo to get rid of the oil, and brush through.” Even dad, who isn’t impressed by much related to fashion and beauty, loved how soft my hair still felt. And, of course, that I was able to get ready in 20 minutes.
Day 3 ~ Caesar’s Palace
We were so busy in Vegas with shopping, gambling, and eating that I didn’t take too many photos (for a fashion blogger, I’m terribly bad at documenting things… even on Instagram!) But, I did take a quick selfie with this beautiful Cosmo. And note how my hair still falls perfectly… even in a super close selfie. (Brag moment I know, but it was my birthday after all).
The last day in Vegas was definitely the most shocking. And not just because of the asymmetrical skirt and crop top I wore (of which dad did NOT approve). First off, it was the first day that I actually WON significant money! (Although it went straight back to the casino when I bought a new perfume at one of the shops).
And, as you can see, my hair was still holding up. I did have to touch up my bangs with a flat iron, but that was an easy 5 minute fix. I was so thrilled that I went a whole vacation without once having to wash my hair!
Day 4 ~ Aria
I was thinking about it… $35 + $7 tip for 4 days of perfect hair… That’s basically $10/day for amazing hair that looks and feels great. Such a great deal. Let’s just say, this girl is officially addicted!
