Kara's Blow Dry Bar event

Wednesday, 28 May 2014

Last night I visited Kara's Blow Dry Bar in Manchester for an opening event. Kara’s offers a selection of blow dries and makeup. Blow dries are priced at £18 (or £24 with extensions) and you can choose from a number of styles including their fabulous curly blow, a straight blow or an up-do. There are also a number of packages to suit how much pampering you want!

Having attended Kara’s before, I was very excited to visit again. They definitely offer the best blow dry I have ever had (and probably the best in Manchester!) and they always last for at least a couple of days.  I find myself washing my hair before the curls or volume have disappeared, definitely the best for value! My hair is incredibly thick and it only takes the blowettes around half an hour to completely wash and finish my hair, which is super quick. I opted for their curly blow called 'Californian Wave' and they somehow managed to transform my hair into this: 

 This is how it looked on day two after sleeping on it:

Upon arriving at the event, I was offered canapés, champagne and a beautiful glittery pink cupcake. There was a DJ playing music that accompanied the event perfectly and provided a great atmosphere amongst the blow dries, makeovers and mingling.

The event was planned by Ledigo PR, who you can find here and on Twitter here, formed by Stephanie who managed to represent Kara’s perfectly with the pamper evening. From looking at pictures of previous events she has created, she manages to capture companies perfectly and provide wonderful and memorable events.

There were MUAs at the event creating beautiful make up looks using Motives cosmetics. I sat in the chair and told the lovely MUA to do whatever she wanted to my face, and this is the result:

The make up lasted all evening without budging and so I would definitely recommend checking out their products, as I definitely will be, here

I was given an amazing goody bag featuring TIGI products which I am super excited to test out, and the cutest little jar of sweets provided by Truly Scrumptious.

Kara’s Blow Dry Bar is situated in Manchester City Centre, on John Dalton street – just a couple of minutes walk from Deansgate/town hall. You can visit their website here, Facebook and Twitter. One of my favourite things about Kara's is that you can tweet them to book an appointment, which makes booking so easy and convenient. Will definitely be booking in very soon!
