I had the pleasure of spending the day inside the elegant and relaxed world of Lilly’s Blow Dry and Makeup Lounge in Oakland. Lilly’s is more than just a blow dry bar. They are a full service salon, and offer an array of services, from color and cut, to hair treatments, updos, extensions, and makeup application. I of course had to get one of their well-know, signature blow-outs. Watch below to see their amazing team create a stunning, old hollywood glam look on my locks. If only I could have them work their magic on my hair everyday.
What makes Lilly’s so unique is that unlike most blow dry bars, there is no menu. Instead you and your stylist discuss the type of look you are going for and they customize and personalize your blowout based on your hair so each look is unique and one of a kind. Each blowout begins with a wash featuring deluxe Kevin Murphy products (my favorite, and so hard to find in Jersey!). Another special feature at the salon is their weightless hair drying system from Freestyle. The state of the art hair dryers hang from the ceiling so cords stay out of your way.
Owner Lauren Haber is an absolute sweetheart, and her attention to detail and great customer service is evident the moment you walk in. Not to mention her eye for design. Lilly’s is a visually stunning space, full of relaxing hues, chic fixtures, and glamorous furnishings. Her team of stylists are all extremely skilled, and aim to make you look and feel beautiful. And they did just that with my gorgeous blowout.
Lilly’s is the perfect salon to prep your tresses before a big event, a hot date, or even just a girls night out. You can visit them at 400 Ramapo Valley Road in Oakland. And tell them OMJ sent you!
