WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- DC women have a lot on their plates, from busy personal lives to challenging jobs.
The "over-scheduled" DC women is the inspiration for a new service at K Street's one80salon, which kicks up the concept of a blowout bar. Co-owner Jeremy Buchanan and his partners "brainstormed on ways of getting more services done in a short amount of time."
The result: a client can now get a manicure and a blow dry at the same time, in just 30 minutes. The price is $65, a $15 savings for bundling the two services.
The mani-blowout is in keeping with one of the hottest trends in the beauty business -- convenience. Another example is the big success of BB creams. They are part foundation, part skin care. Sales surged 1,800 percent last year in the US.
