Creator of the Original Blow Dry Bar Concept Debuts Renovations & Offers $29 Blow Outs to Celebrate Grand Re-Opening

New owner, Kari Valcich, introduces updates to Blo Blow Dry Bar's Greenwich location.

My number one priority is to provide clients with an exceptional experience, from the moment they book their appointment, to the moment they take their final look in the mirror.

Blo Blow Dry Bar, the original and largest blow dry bar franchise in North America, is excited to welcome new ownership to its Greenwich location, which first opened its doors in January 2018. Nestled in the heart of Greenwich’s premier shopping district at the top of Greenwich Avenue, the newly renovated 1,200 square-foot space will debut updated interior and exterior design elements, fresh talent and an enhanced in-bar experience, including a complimentary refreshments menu, as it celebrates its official grand-reopening.

“As a newcomer to the area, it was important for me to become acquainted with the Greenwich community to ensure a smooth transition for existing clients, as well as to determine any appropriate operational and aesthetic modifications,” said Kari Valcich, new owner of Blo Greenwich and multi-unit Blo Blow Dry Bar franchise partner. “My number one priority is to provide clients with an exceptional experience, from the moment they book their appointment, to the moment they take their final look in the mirror. I’m excited to reintroduce Blo to Greenwich Avenue as I continue my journey as a Blo franchise partner.”

“Kari opened her first Blo location in 2019 and quickly became one of our top performing franchisees, so when the opportunity in Greenwich became available, we immediately thought of her,” said Vanessa Yakobson, CEO of Blo Blow Dry Bar. “Her prior professional experience as a former New York City entertainment executive, coupled with her personal experience as a working mom of three, is a great fit for the area and the continued growth of Blo’s Greenwich location.”

Blo Greenwich is staffed with a team of experienced, expertly trained stylists and makeup artists, who undergo intensive training and continued education to master the latest beauty trends and techniques. Blo offers a variety of everyday and special occasion hair and makeup services including:

  • BLOW OUTS & STYLING: Opt for a classic blow out, or choose from one of Blo’s signature styles featured in the ‘Blo Hair Menu,’ from sexy sleek ‘Executive Sweet,’ to runway-inspired ‘Pillow Talk.’
  • UP DOS & BRAIDING: Choose your own a la carte style or add a braided look to any blow out.
  • HAIR & SCALP ENHANCEMENTS: Nourish your locks by adding a deep conditioning treatment to any service, or relax and stimulate healthy hair growth with a 10-minute scalp massage.
  • MAKEUP APPLICATION: Bring your own inspo, or choose a look from the ‘Blo Makeup Menu’ to enhance your natural beauty, or go full glamour.
  • BLO BRIDAL: In-bar or on-location, Blo Bridal is an affordable luxury to get brides and their entourages tressed to impress.

Blo uses an array of luxury haircare and color care products by UNITE and Color Wow, as well as a full spectrum of professional skincare and mineral-based makeup from Glo Skin Beauty. All products are paraben, sulfate and cruelty free, and available for purchase on location.
