JustAir blow dry bar

JustAir blow dry bar (November 19, 2012)

What's a busy woman to do during the holiday season?

Let's say there's no time for a hair salon visit, but you have a desperate need to look F&F (fierce and fabulous). The answer is a blow-dry only bar where your coiffure and cut are freshened up starting at $35.

"You can get your hair washed, blown out and styled to your liking," explains Brooke Gettler, who co-owns the recently-opened JustAir salon on 17th Street Causeway with besty Nicole Carner. "We have about six styles you can choose from. We get you in and out. Our tagline is: breeze in and blow out."

And with the social crunch time of the holiday season, the two Rio Vista moms are planning some offsite help for South Florida women follicle-fighting the heat and humidity of the sub-tropical region.

"We're doing more pop-up boutiques at YOLO [on Las Olas Boulevard]," said Carner. "We give them what we call 'refreshers.' We're going to be working with a lot of areas boutiques. You can look on our Facebook page for what's coming up."

If you have the time, you can also try other services such as scalp massages and treatments or hair extensions and clip-ins. Carner and Gettler - not stylists themselves - say that their six hires are trained to work with all kinds of hair textures.

"My hair does not hold in this weather," said Gettler. "It'll go frizzy. If your hair is thick and frizzy, we have some really great tools and products on hand to give her that polished look she is going for. Speaking from past experience, you go into a salon and get a cut. Then you have a hard time getting that same style again at home. I mean they make your hair like art sometimes. It's hard to do that at home by yourself."
