The perfect blowout may seem like a fantasy. Whether you’re competing with weather conditions or a packed schedule, getting photo-ready hair at home can be nearly impossible. So, consider getting pampered instead. These metro Detroit blowout services allow you to skip the dramatics and relax while receiving high-quality salon care at an affordable price.

Aqua Salon

This classic blowout adds just the right amount of volume, while maintaining a polished, smooth look. The salon’s most convenient offer is to have a stylist come directly to clients, Julia Nicolaou, owner of Aqua Salon, says. “This saves the hassle of arranging a babysitting and worrying about parking.” 111 W.

6 Salon

This award-winning salon offers quality blowouts at both of its locations (and eventually at the in-the-works Detroit shop). “To us, it’s about so much more than just blow-drying the hair,” George Nikollaj, owner of 6 Salon, says. “The client relationship is so important when you’re giving the perfect blowout. Just because someone has hair doesn’t mean you can use the same products on everyone.” The salon analyzes each customers hair, creating a truly customized blowout experience. 306 W. Sixth St., Royal Oak; 248-398-1586; and 180 S. Old Woodward, Birmingham; 248-282-5600;

Want to keep your blowout intact? The salon brand also offers a variety of products including dry shampoos and shine sprays, available at Ulta and Sephora, as well as at any Drybar locations.
