Blo and Gwyneth

Disclaimer....this post is all about hair.  So anyone who doesn't care about blow outs and straight hair, you might want to skip today's post.

Ever since my Jean Claude Biguine obsessed days, I always been coveting an occasion to get my hair blown out.  Getting keratin treatments have helped and expensive hair dryers can do the trick when I have 45 minutes to spare..but nothing is like getting it done from a professional.  Miami doesn't have too many "just blowout" salons..but they are slowly catching up.

Today on my way home...I saw this Instagram...



and my reaction was "holy cow..is Gwyneth in Miami?"  I clicked on the #blobodycoralgables hash tag and it took me to their Instagram.  Gwyneth has partnered with Blo and it seems just posted this pic promoting their opening.  About five minutes later, I got a text from my pal Grimsley (another GP fan) who saw the same Instagram.

I actually panicked for a second and wondered if I could squeeze a drive-by to Blo into my crazy schedule.  My hair wasn't blown out yesterday, so how embarrassing?  Luckily enough, there was no need.  Upon further investigation, she was just promoting the opening on her Instagram.  She has appeared at several Blo location openings.  Earlier this year, this cartoon version of GP debuted in conjunction with the partnership.  Flowing blonde hair..what an advertisement!

Fortunately for me, I have had a close encounter (about two feet) with Gwyneth in 2008 at a Coldplay concert in Boston.  You can read about that here.  Now that...was a true lifetime highlight.

If you don't like Gwyneth, I am not sure we can be friends...
xoxo, kp
