What is the Huetiful Blowout Bar?

The Huetiful Blowout Bar is located inside Huetiful Salon (Chicago) and features 6 licensed Huetiful Stylists working together to provide exceptional blowouts and silk presses using Huetiful's well known thermal straightening process. The service includes a shampoo, conditioning, steam treatment, blowout, and style of choice for just $55. Additional treatments or "boosts" can be added for $5 to $25 without extending the duration of the service which averages 90 minutes. The service is provided by two Huetiful Stylists. The first stylist is focused exclusively on the consultation, shampoo, conditioning, and steam treatment. Once done - you will move to the second stylist who will focus exclusively on the blowout, flat iron (or wand curl) styling, and trim if necessary. The two stylists are not selected prior to the service. You will be placed based on the time in which you schedule but all stylists are Huetiful certified and have been trained at Huetiful.

1. PRICE. We wanted to provide our most popular service for just $55 or 20% off our regular Huetiful Blowout / Silk Press price. 

2. MORE AVAILABILITY. We are often booked on Saturdays and this service allows us to get twice as many clients through the salon while still maintaining our full-service menu on the other side of the Huetiful Salon (Chicago).

3. BETTER FOCUS and RESULTS. With stylists focused exclusively on blowouts and silk presses, we can improve the quality and consistency of this, are most popular service.

Depending on the health of your hair you have the option to add boosts to your service:

Moisture Boost ($5) - We use our Huetiful Hydrating Conditioner with Moringa Oil with twice the moringa and coconut oil in it for an additional moisture boost. We then steam that treatment into the hair to provide an additional boost of moisture, nutrients, and oil deep into your curls prior to styling. 

Smoothing Boost ($5) - We use the Velveteen Shampoo and Conditioner from the Amika brand to provide enhanced manageability and smooth, silkened hair. The Velveteen Conditioner is then steamed into to hair prior to styling. 

Strengthening Boost ($25) - We use our Glycol Strengthening Treatment with amino acids. The amino acids are protein building blocks that restore and fortify your hair back to its natural state. The strengthening boost is steamed into the hair to ensure that it effectively penetrates deep into your curls prior to styling. 

Once you complete your steam treatment, you will be welcomed by a Huetiful Blowout Stylist. One of three Blowout Stylists will provide you with your desired style. We have four styles to choose from at no additional cost: Silk Press (for bone straight hair), Kinky Straight (for a non-flat ironed look), Curler Curls (for a silkened yet loose curl look), and Wand Curls (for more defined curls achieved with the Amika Chameleon Wand Curl Barrels). 

As always, your service is completed with a trim of up to one inch or you can opt to have more hair cut for an additional $25.

Associate (Bronze) Level - This is our lowest priced level and features licensed and certified Huetiful stylists that have typically been with our company for less than a year. All of our associate level services are provided by stylists who have passed our technical service exam with live models. In addition, they've all had over 40 additional hours of specified training by either our Director of Education or a Site Lead Stylist. For a good service experience at our lowest price, look at this category when looking for a specific style. 

Sr. Stylist (Silver) Level - This is our best value and combines a lower price with our experienced Sr. Stylists. Silver Level is our everyday pricing for our Sr. Stylists and you can find these services in every category like Care + Straight Styles, Care + Curly Styles, Loc Maintenance, Color and Haircuts.

To help manage this more effectively, we charge a $15 fee for every additional 15 minutes required to detangle matted, excessively tangled hair.
