When presented with the opportunity to review a local beauty salon, I couldn’t type quick enough to respond. Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to get their glam on? Driving to my appointment at Flow Blow Dry & Beauty Bar in Reston, I was giddy with excitement. My two boys were home with daddy, and I was about to have two hours of pampering.

Since opening in January 2013, Flow has received several accolades from other local magazines. The first salon of its kind in the D.C. area, Flow specializes in blowouts and… READ FULL REVIEW

During its introductory phase, threading will be performed at the Reston location and waxing at Ashburn.

FLOW brings blow-dry experience to One Loudoun




Northern Virginia’s First Blow Dry Bar Opens in Ashburn, VA

FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar is a no cut/no color concept salon offering blow-outs, styling, make-up application, lashes, waxing, threading, mani-pedis, and express facials. The highly anticipated salon has opened in the new One Loudoun development in Ashburn, following its success with its first location in Reston VA, and is offering a 50% off discount through June 31st, 2014.

Blow dry bars have enjoyed popularity over the past few years in major cities such as Los Angeles and New York City. FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar is excited to announce their highly anticipated opening at One Loudoun in Ashburn, following its success with its first location in Reston, VA. FLOW is the first of its kind blow dry & beauty bar in the Northern VA area and has been voted “Best Blowout in Northern VA” by Northern VA Magazine two years in a row, “Best of Reston” by Washingtonian, “Best New Business” by Reston Now, and has been featured in Daily Candy, Patch, DC Modern Luxury Magazine and more.

FLOW is a “one stop express beauty shop”, bringing big city service and affordable luxury to Ashburn. Excellent client services coupled with a happy, energetic atmosphere is what makes FLOW popular. Women can come in and experience a relaxing shampoo and blow dry style for a fraction of the cost and time required to get a full cut and color. They can choose from a menu of blowout styles including the popular F.L.O.W (Flowing Locks of Winsomeness – straight with body) or the Calypso (beachy waves or glam curls) styles. The new “Star Treatment” is a simultaneous blowout and mani and/or pedi service for busy women on the go. Women can also enjoy beauty services such as hair treatments, make-up application, lashes, waxing, threading, express or glamour manis/pedis and express organic facials.

FLOW is also where glamour and wellness meet. The salon carries high quality organic, natural, sulphate/paraben free or chemical free products that are safe for hair in skin such as Kevin Murphy, Loma Organics, Eufora, Suki Skincare, and Zoya Polish. A keratin smoothing treatment by Cezanne is 100% formaldehyde free.

New York City fashion designer Samira Atash is the founder of FLOW and created the concept after seeing the popularity of blow dry bars pop in NYC when she lived there for over 10 years. With over 15 years experience in design, styling, marketing and business management, Samira recently moved to Northern VA to raise her 4-year-old daughter, and is bringing a bit of Manhattan style to Northern VA. Doors for the Ashburn location has opened a few weeks before she is due to give birth to twin boys.

Branding and interior concept of FLOW is also designed by Samira. The pink & white mod/retro interior, splashed with pops of color, is inspired by the 60’s and is designed to make women feel happy when they walk in. The Ashburn salon includes eight styling chairs, two mani/styling chairs, two threading chairs, two make-up chairs, and a private waxing/facial room. The custom built blow dry bar with overhead pendant lighting, designer white quartz counters, custom mirrors, and eight European styling chairs are complimented by state-of-the art professional blow dryers, high quality brushes/tools and organic/sulphate/paraben-free hair care products.

FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar in Ashburn is located at 44719 Brimfield Dr at the One Loudoun development (ground level between Sprint and Zooe’s Kitchen), at the corner of Route 7 and Loudoun County Parkway. Plans are underway to open a third location in Chantilly. Appointments are recommended but walk-ins are also welcome.

FLOW Featured in “Let Your Style Speak”

When I received the salon opening invite to the only blow & beauty bar in the area, of course I said YES. I’ve been wanting to try this new trend and was waiting for a salon to pop up in the area. If you’re like me, and can’t do proper blow outs or up-do’s, then I’d highly recommend going to see the ladies at FLOW blow & beauty bar. They’re very knowledgeable about hair care and I appreciated getting proper blow out tips through out my experience.

I was immediately impressed with the modern decor, attentiveness of the staff, and quality of products (especially the Moroccan oil shampoo, my hair is still so soft). I remember thinking this is a great place for a bridal party to get ready for the big day. Mimosas would be a great addition as well

Can’t wait to go back soon!
