It’s Thursday. In Chicago, Thursday seems to be the new Friday, and therefore, everyone is prepping and primping to go out. Personally, my blowout never looks as good when I do it myself. A professional blowout provides the bounce and volume of a Victoria’s Secret style mane, and quite frankly nothing makes a girl feel better than that.

That’s where Goldplaited comes in. Blowouts can run upwards of $60, and as much as I love my hair, I can not, and will not, pay for that whenever I have something worthy of a blowout. Goldplaited offers a blowout (with a head massage!) for $38, and a dry style for $30. What sets Goldplaited apart from other finishing salons? They also offer make up services. Located right in the heart of Lincoln Park, it could not be any better.

Personally, I’ve been to Goldplaited a few times and would highly recommend it. Mal and Corinna, the sisters who founded this posh spot, are so nice and it feels like you’re right at home with your best girlfriends. The blowout lasts for about two days if you sleep with it the right way. Appointments fill up pretty quickly on the weekends so I would call and snatch one up while you can.

Goldplaited, 773-880-9180. 2803 North Sheffield Avenue.
