“I love FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar. I have really uncontrollable, curly hair that takes forever to style. If I have an event or something I need it done for it’ll take me around an hour to style, which is such a pain. I have tried other “Blow-Dry” bars before and FLOW is by far my favorite. FLOW has four or five styles you can pick from — all the same price which is great. $35 for a wash, blow dry straight, and then curl it to give a beach wave feel is a bargain! Anytime I have an event or just in need of a fun “girls day out” I always choose the FLOW.”  Jacqueline L.Vienna, VA

“I normally go to Dry Bar in Georgetown but with traffic and scheduling it can become more of a headache than a convenience. FLOW in Ashburn was able to fit me in the day of and they were super sweet. Would definitely recommend and I have long, thick, wavy/curly hair. Was not a problem and it looks great!” Nadia S.Leesburg, VA

“So, I had heard about this place but I was EXTREMELY skeptical as my hair is super duper curly and I just couldn’t believe they’d be able to help me :). I booked an appointment the day of my company’s holiday party.  While I knew it was risky, boy was I happy that I ended up booking that appointment!  I did the standard blow dry and then added a pin curl set for a super glamorous look.  I also had them do my makeup and I was literally able to walk out of the door, put my dress on, and go! I observed all of the stylists and they all did an amazing job on their clients.  I can’t wait to go back!!!! At $35, you really can’t beat their work! Love them!” Maria K.Centerville, VA

“Called FLOW in Ashburn and they got me an appointment for a blow dry the same day. They were upbeat and friendly from the get-go. The blow dry looked great! I already recommended them to three friends, and I’ll be back next week for another visit.” Alex W.Ashburn, VA

“I came back and had my hair blown out and a keratin blowout.  Okay, not only did I have a total blast laughing and meeting some of the other patrons but my hair looked amazing.  No one could believe that it was MY hair.   When I walked out- I had no frizz and soft straight hair.  I felt great.  I highly recommend coming to FLOW as it is an event in and of itself and you will have fun and leave with a smile on your face and great hair.  I love this place!” Morgan S.Vienna, VA

“My girls and I thought it would be a great idea to try out a blow dry bar for our Girls Day Out!  We had a great time!  The staff was super nice as well.  We were cheerfully greeted, offered water while we waited and they assisted us in our photo shoot by taking our “before” pictures.  What I loved most is that they do not use cheap hair products which is a plus in my book.  All three of us wanted different styles and they all looked great. “ Eboni B.Washington, D.C.

“I absolutely love FLOW!  I went to the Ashburn location and fell in love. Everything was very clean, organized and the employees were all so friendly and nice.  The did a great job with my crazy hair and I will be coming back very often. My stylist was very professional, told me about all the products she was using in my hair and actually cared about me. My hair looked amazing! I was beyond happy with the results.  The atmosphere was fun and happy and I recommend FLOW to anyone who wants to be pampered and treated like royalty. LOVE LOVE FLOW!!!” Katie K.Ashburn, VA

“Wish this place was closer to my home! Its close by my work but I dont have much time to visit. Friendly people – and my Calypso waves stayed for three days after i had it dried and curled here! Its worth the $35” Hilary Y.Germantown, MD

“Been going to Esma for makeup and I absolutely love her attn to detail, perfectionism and honest guidance to eyebrow re growth and maintanence. My eyebrows have never looked healthier, and I can’t complain about the painless threading!! Love her!! Hala L.Austin, TX

“I went to FLOW in Ashburn because my husband’s firm was having a party and I was meeting the partners for the first time. It was imperative that I make a good impression. It was easy to schedule an appointment and very easy to get to. The parking was also really great, which isn’t always the case in this area.  I arrived early and Ashley was ready to style my hair. I had opted for an up do as I wanted something I wouldn’t have to mess with for the entire evening. She helped me pick a style and went right to work. I have really thin hair and was honestly a little worried about the style we chose. The Receptionist even commented on how great and elegant it looked. The style also held all night and my husband’s boss complimented me on it as well. Next, Samira did my make up and I was blown away. She made my skin look like porcelain while still giving me a dewy glow. I couldn’t stop smiling because I truly felt beautiful. My husband was ecstatic with the overall result. All night, I was complimented on my hair and make up. Everyone I interacted with at the salon was friendly and very accommodating. It was a relaxed yet professional a atmosphere and it was nice to get out for a bit and be pampered. A real plus is that the make up and other products are organic. The hairspray actually smelled good and left my hair soft. Finally, the price was so reasonable for all I had done. Another added plus were the tips both Ashley and Samira gave me regarding hair and make up. I’m still using them. I definitely plan on going back for future events. I highly recommend this salon for any future events you may have.” Jennifer L., Sterling, VA

“Nia is amazing, I have difficult (thick, long, wavy) hair to tame and she makes it look fabulous every week. Not only does it look great, it holds for days longer than a DryBar blowout and she is FAST. The staff is super friendly and helpful, Esma does the best threading in Northern Virginia, love this place!” Jill F.Alexandria, VA

From my gorgeous hair that lasted 4 days, to the makeup by Esma, I highly recommend this place. I used them for my 30th birthday last December and most recently for my engagement photos. Despite the heat, my hair and make up stays in tact throughout the photo shoot. I highly recommend them to anyone who has long hair and like to look their best before photos or an event :)   Kristen C.Ashburn, VA

“This was my first time at a dry bar and I was not disappointed! The staff is super friendly and professional! I felt like they were really taking care of my needs. I tried threading my eyebrows for the first time and it was perfect! I’m so happy with the results!!! I will definitely come back! It’s worth the drive! Affordable, professional, and cute place!”   Luisa R.Fairfax, VA

“I just recently visited the FLOW in Ashburn to get a Keratin treatment. The place is very clean and organized. Everyone that works there is very nice and chatty. I loved my hair, it turned out great! I definitely recommend FLOW to anyone wanting to get Keratin done. I will be going back to get blow outs as well and I am looking forward to my next visit!”
Rachel T. -Ashburn ,VA

“Esma: eyebrow diva.  Face reality, let your too-thin, DIY brows grow out for 2 or 3 weeks (let’s be real, 3 or 4 weeks), then go see her.  She will fix your face.” Shauna S.Washington, D.C.

“I needed my hair blown out for a formal wedding and made an appointment for a ‘Calypso’. I have fine hair that refuses to hold any kind of style, much less loose waves, without fail. I’m usually left with some kind of limp, half-assed hairstyle. I scheduled my appointment for 9 AM at FLOW and my hair looked awesome through the ceremony and reception, which lasted until midnight. I will most definitely return!” Hannah D.Mammoth Lakes, CA

“My stylist was Micaela at Ashburn and she did an amazing job on my hair. She was great about telling me what she was using and why. She was friendly and we chatted throughout the blowout. She did a great job at getting the volume I can never achieve myself and the slight curl I asked her for as well. I really loved my blowout and I will definitely be back to see Micaela soon!!” Alyssa N.Fairfax, VA

“It was POURING the day I went. FLOW did a FANTASTIC job and I’m sitting here typing this four days later and my locks and still flowin…. thanks Flow!!” Julia M.Sterling, VA

“This place is amazing! I have really curly and thick hair but they make it look amazing. I’ve been here four times and everyone is friendly and professional. I might buy a package of multiple blow-dries to save a little money. This place is great and there isn’t anything like it for the price.” Cassie W.McLean, VA

“I had my hair done for my friends wedding here. My hair never holds curl very well so I was hesitant when the stylist told me that she thought curly ‘Victoria’s Secret’ curls would look great with my dress. It was 1130 and the wedding was at 430 but i trusted her and went with it. She washed my hair first (which felt amazing) and then it took about 45 minutes to curl. When she got done with my hair looked fantastic and not only did it hold until the end of the wedding but it looked great the next day and night!! I didn’t want to wash my hair because i had never had my hair hold so well! It was definitely worth $35 and I will definitely go back!! They are also very attentive in making sure you have something to drink.” Olivia K.Centreville, VA

“The ladies at FLOW have always been great! It’s my go to place for an awesome blowout. I can’t wait to try other things.” Jessica T. Sterling, VA

“I came here to get my hair done on my graduation, and it was beautiful. The sleek curls lasted all day, from the actual ceremony (with the horrible cap threatening to ruin my volume) to the actual party afterward, which was a picnic at my house. For my naturally straight, frizzy hair, that’s insane!  I mentioned to my stylist that my hair loses volume and curl very quickly, so she made sure to add extra product. One thing I especially liked was the fact that the stylists didn’t try desperately to sell me products or other services. I’m definitely coming back! I just wish they could franchise and open up in Tysons!” Myra A. – Falls Church, VA

“I finally decided to treat myself and get my hair done at FLOW in Ashburn! I like the salon environment, very nice modern look, clean, and friendly staff. I did a walk-in appointment and Micaela took me right away. She is super nice and an amazing stylist. My hair is long, kinky/curly, and thick… extremely hard to manage. She is the first stylist that has tamed my hair and did so very quickly (in less than 45 min)! I received plenty of compliments after. She really gave me what I was looking for. I will definitely be going back to FLOW. Prices are great too!” Ana T.Leesburg, VA

“Very pleased with services . Had blow out and makeup done and both were flawless. Would recommend for sure!” Courtney C.Reston, VA

“My blowout lasted two days, which is very unusual for my hair. I have also had my eyebrows done twice and have been very pleased with the results. I am so happy we have this service here in Reston!” Rylan H.Reston, VA

‘Have been to FLOW Blow Dry Bar four times and have loved my hair every time. They have a discount if you buy six or twelve blow dries at one time, which makes it very affordable. Great atmosphere, friendly, professional stylists and great results. I will go back again and again.” Lauretta S. – Vienna, VA

I really love this place! I’ve felt like family from the first day I made an appointment.  I’ve had “a birthday pre-party here, regularly get my eyebrows threaded there, and use it for general nights out.  Staff is awesome–anyone you get will make you look like a million dollars!  The owner regularly stops in and is wonderful.  I love this place!” Carrie A.Bristow, VA

“I have been coming to FLOW Blow Dry Bar in Reston for a little over a year and half now and I can’t begin to tell you how much I absolutely love it. Nia is truly gifted with her ability to do magic with hair especially mine! That is why I come see her every week! She knows my style and knows I am a perfectionist when it comes to my hair! She did my hair for my wedding and after 9 hours of wedding fun, I was still getting compliments on my hair for how great it still looked from our family and friends. I just recently had a daughter and told her yesterday that I cannot wait for when she is old enough to get her hair done from Nia too! It will be a mommy/daughter weekly hair date! Thanks Nia for being an amazing stylist and thank you, Esma and rest of Reston staff for always taking care of me and being genuinely awesome!” Natasha M. - Fairfax Station, VA

“Went for blow dry and eyebrow threading, great job on both. My hair turned out sleek and smooth and I had never tried threading before and I really like the result. Highly recommend the folks at FLOW.”  Leigh G.Arlington, VA

“I love be pampered and Jasmine is the best!  Always let her pick the style. She really knows her stuff. Shugofa did my brows, fantastic job. Appointments are easy to book online and many options to choose from. Great gift idea for ladies with long hair!” Dineen A.Herndon, VA

“Love this place! Excellent customer service. Esma is great for makeup and threading – love her!! My brows have never looked better and she does it quickly with almost no pain. I’ve had several different people do my hair and its good every time. Highly recommend!!!” Hope J.Arlington, VA

“I’ve been to my fair share of fancy places to get my eyebrows done (Benefit Brow Bar, Anastasia Brow Studio, etc.) and none of them hold a candle to Esma. This girl knows what she is doing, charges half the price, and your brows will look twice as good. A bunch of the cheap threading places I’ve gone to are really rough as well and they just do your brows as fast as they can and get you out, then your brows grow in two weeks later and you have to go back. Not so with Esma. She is gentle and takes her time. I don’t know what she did differently but it took about a month and a half for my brows to get unruly before I went back to see her again. When she is done with you your brows look perfect, it’s amazing. Not to mention, she is so sweet and friendly. FLOW, you have found yourself a loyal customer!”  Zoe W.Fairfax Station, VA

“I went to FLOW in Reston as an emergency for my wedding! My hair and make up artists had messed up so I had to take my sister’s appointment at the FLOW and they did an Excellent job. Now I go there for threading my face and brows and whenever I may need styling :) I’m very happy I found them!” Sanaz G.Reston, VA

“Best place to get your eyebrows done. Esma always does my eyebrow threading. She perfectly knows what suits your face. I have very thick eyebrows and she gives it a perfect shape. With other beauticians I always had problem making them understand  what  kinda of eyebrows I wanted , but not with Esma. I have got a lot of complements for my eyebrows ever since I got it done with her. I had very bad experience with waxing my eyebrows and that’s when I went to Esma. My eyebrows had grown very badly in all directions because of the bad waxing, but she fixed it in a very nice manner. She does the job with lot of patience. Thanks to Esma for my wonderful eyebrows.”   Sreelakshmi P.Herndon, VA

“I went to my first blowout here on a day that was DOWNPOURING rain – so that was a fail on my part. But my results (while they lasted – thanks, rain…) were great! I opted for the “FLOW” style and they did an amazing job! I left with beautiful, smooth, shiny hair! At $35, I think the price is reasonable. I will definitely be back and recommend you check it out!” Emily T.Vienna, VA

“I have been a loyal customer of FLOW for about a year and a half now. My hair is thick, coarse, and hard to style (at least for me!) FLOW has been a lifesaver for my hair and my sanity. It is now longer, shinier, and healthier from going there regularly. A complete transformation!  The stylists are very gentle with your hair which also makes it a relaxing experience. You cannot go wrong with any of the stylists, all are very talented, but I want to give a personal shout out to Nia, Chelsea, and Shugofa who are AMAZING. Visit them ladies, you won’t be disappointed!  I never leave this place without feeling like a rockstar. Not to mention that the atmosphere is a lot of fun, and all of the ladies that work there, including Esma are SO friendly.  They take great care of me every time I have been in there (which let’s just say is A LOT), and at this point I consider these ladies friends. I am pretty picky with my hair and have visited many salons, and I have never been happier with a blowout/style anywhere else. Not even close! In all of my visits I have always left feeling thrilled with my blowout. The stylists really care about the look you are going for and will make sure you leave feeling and looking your best. LOVE this place!” Melissa S.Chantilly, VA

“First time at FLOW and I had a great experience. I called the night before as they were closing to request appointment for the next morning first appointment. I was surprised that they could get me in at such late notice. All services were done to my liking and with friendly attentiveness. The girls were great to talk to and made me feel like a friend. Their fees are very reasonable compared to a full service salon. I recommend their services when you need to look your best for a meeting, special event, date night, or just to get pampered.” Jill W. – Ashburn, VA

“Best blow dry in Northern Virginia!!  I love this place!  The staff is professional, courteous and friendly.  Nia is amazing. I have long, THICK hair and it’s usually a bear to control it and make it look good.  She works wonders, makes it look smooth as silk, and all in under an hour!   Esma always do her best to accommodate my busy work and travel schedule.  I highly recommend it!” Kathy A.Herndon VA

“I love FLOW Blow Dry & Beauty Bar!!!! I get my eyebrows threaded and Esma is the absolute best!! She got me to grow them out and now they look amazing! I would not trust anyone else with my eyebrows…” Chiara N. – Upper Marlboro, MD

“Micaela at Ashburn did my eye makeup so well that I asked if she could do some contouring. I then sat down to have Ashley do my blowout. I can’t say enough good things about her. I have A LOT of hair and she did a great job while being very social and keeping the conversation going, even with the hairdryer on. I loved my FLOW blow out and she even added some “Kim K” curls. My hair lasted through me sweating like a pig when rushing to my gate, rain, and an evening out with college friends. It would have lasted longer if I didn’t have to wash it the next morning to get rid of the bar stench. I received a ton of compliments on my look that night and felt great! I am a very picky person so finding a place I trust to do my hair/makeup is a real struggle. I will definitely come back to FLOW”, Eliza M.Fairfax, VA

“I love FLOW Blow Dry and Beauty Bar!  I would highly recommend it.  I have long very curly hair and Nia gets it blown out  so it looks fabulous, and the results last!  I also use Emma for threading and would highly recommend her.  My eyebrows have never looked better”, Sheri H.Fairfax, VA

“I never write reviews but after going to this salon I couldn’t help it. I got a blow dry from this salon for an event and I was just blown away on how amazing my hair looked. From the start when you start communicating with the front desk you just know how amazing this place will be. Shugofa was my stylist and she took her time to listen to my needs and just did an FABULOUS job with my hair. I got so many compliments on the night of my event and the style was just $35.00! And what’s even better is that you can make your appointment online! LOVE LOVE LOVE this place and will be going back. For anyone who is picky and is in doubt this is your place and you will not regret it!” Ghesaal K.Fairfax VA

“First time to visit this salon. I went in to get my eyebrows threaded. I’ve had my eyebrows threaded for the past 5 years, but only had superior results in the Middle East. This was the first time I’ve had a person in the US thread my eyebrows to the same exceptional standard. I’m very impressed by Esma’s passion for detail. It did take a little longer than normal, but this is because she didn’t just quickly clean up like most do. She was very careful to shape my eyebrows just how I like them – and mine were all out of shape. Very happy with the results – and definitely will come back. Not sure if Esma is the only one that does threading – but ask for her – she’s the best! Best part, other than the great arch work? Price. Super cheap.”
Jessica C.Vienna, VA

“I have been to other “blow-dry” bars but this one is my favorite. It is convenient and I was in and out in an hour. My stylist was knowledgeable and professional. She made my hair feel silky with tons of body. I will definitely refer her to my friends.  Thank you!” Dee W. -Marshall, VA

“I had two great experiences at FLOW Blow Dry and Beauty Bar! I don’t usually wear much makeup, but my daughter was getting married this past weekend and I wanted/needed some help.  I decided to try this salon since my daughters had just tried it out for eyebrow threading and said Esma, did a great job! I went for a trial last Thursday, and then made another appointment for the day of the wedding.  Both Esma, who did my “trial” and Shugofa, who did it on the day of the wedding worked their  “magic”!  I loved that I still “looked like myself” but “better”!  My family loved it too! I would recommend their shop to anyone, especially for the more “mature” woman who doesn’t normally wear a lot of makeup. They should go to FLOW Blow Dry and Beauty Bar for a “fresh face” makeup trial, special occasion help and/or lesson. Thanks Esma and Shugofa for introducing me to “minimal makeup” for a great look!” Jane W. – Reston, VA

“What a wonderful experience at FLOW!  The staff is very friendly and professional.  I got a blow dry and they did such a wonderful job.  My hair not only looked great at the wedding, but the style stayed for 3 days!  Esma completed my look with threading my eyebrows and doing my makeup.  Wow!  I am hooked.  Love this place!!!” Waranga I.Chantilly, VA

“What an absolute gem in Reston! I am so happy that I found FLOW and am now a regular there. All the beauticians are awesome. The staff is so kind and professional. The services offered are unique and affordable. The various blowouts are just fantastic. Ladies, go check this place out and I promise you will not be disappointed. Thanks Samira Atash for your savvy business idea put to reality. 5 STARS WITHOUT QUESTION!” Hind B.Vienna, VA

“I had my eyebrows threaded with Esma. Great work! My brows had gotten uneven and too thin, so I had been growing them out. Esma took that in to consideration when shaping them and at the end told me where to let them grow in some more so I could have a fuller look. I’ve never been to someone so thorough.” Meghan H. – Reston, VA

“I got my hair done into Kim Kardashian-esque waves. It looked so amazing and I got so many compliments! My hair can NOT hold a curl. They had this special technique though and was able to make my curls last all day and night. I was in a bridal party and it was an outdoors wedding too. It just looked absolutely perfect.” Alex S. Richmond, VA

“This is now my go-to place for eyebrow threading. Esma is the best! I moved to the NoVa area about a year ago and after a few very bad experiences at other threading salons, I stumbled across reviews for FLOW. I’m one of those super picky people when it comes to my brows (which grow in crazy directions and are tricky to maintain). Thankfully, Esma is a pro at what she does and was able to re-shape my brows without making them super thin like other places used to do.  The place is super clean, the staff is always friendly and smiling and I always walk out happy. Haven’t gotten a blow-out yet but it’s on my list for the next special occasion. I’d recommend calling ahead to make an appointment, especially if you want to see Esma for threading. You won’t be disappointed!” Paola C. – Herndon, VA

“FLOW is my new favorite addiction!  I can’t say enough about them!  It is my favorite place to start my morning! My addiction consists of visiting there at least two to three times a week. I’m obsessed! You have to try FLOW in Reston….just don’t take my standing appointment! :)” Elaine H.Reston, VA

“I wanted to get on the bandwagon and try one of these blowout places but I live in Northern VA and didn’t want to go to DC. I discovered this one in Reston. What a find! I told them my hair was fine and thin and frizzed easily and I have trouble getting volume. OMG!! After it was done it looked awesome. I didn’t have to wash my hair for 3 days!! There was still volume and NO frizz! I will be back. I highly recommend her and this place!!!” Jennifer Y.Springfield, VA

“I have thick hair and it normally takes me 45 mins to dry it.  Nia is wonderful for blow outs and you have to go them for makeup! Very cheerful atmosphere inside, friendly staff.”
Aurora G.Bethesda, MD

“You feel like you’ve stepped into an ultra-chic girl’s club surrounded by your best friends and sisters when you walk into FLOW and are greeted with warm smiles by the staff. I brought a very good friend here for her birthday to get deep conditioning treatments blow outs, makeup,  and lash application. We had so much fun laughing, chatting and getting to know the staff while getting pampered. As a busy full time work-from-home mom with very curly hair, I don’t always have time to blow out my hair sleek and smooth. I’ve already got an appointment to bring two more friends for their birthday at the end of the month! Keep it up, FLOW. You’re amazing and just what Northern Virginia’s curly girls have been waiting a life time for! I’ve already recommended this place to many of  my friends who have also had great experiences!” Hillary L.Manassas, VA

“New blow bar in Reston. They are a one-stop shop for blowouts, makeup, threading. My girl was very nice and did a great job. I will definitely go back before heading back to LA for a last time blowout.”  Victoria S. – San Jose, CA
