Blo Dry Bar Opens in Calgary/ Paige Denim at Holt Renfrew: Designer Paige-Adams Geller visits YYC

1. Blo is the new Pink: Blo Dry Bar opens in Calgary, Alberta.
North America’s original no cut, no color, only: wash and blow dry BAR finally hits Calgary! #YYC.
Started in Vancouver, Canada, the entire concept of “Blo Dry Bar” is simple but SMART. An example scenario: you have a romantic dinner date at 7:00, but you can't leave work until 5:00, and you really don’t want to fight the traffic home to get your hair done and pretty yourself. I see the HUGE benefit of having a “Blo Dry Bar” around the corner to give anyone in a rush a quick, affordable runway style so they can impress the date with their fabulous hair and also not having to worry about doing the "Blo job" themselves.
Trust me…"you can't blo yourself"
A cute Blo menu is offered

Blo is so popular that it had already “blo-wn” to various parts of British Columbia, Ontario, California, Texas and now Alberta.

I was there at the Calgary’s new Blo pre-opening media day, and of course many of the YYC’s most influential fashion bloggers: Diva Lounge, Lions Lace Lattes, Mr. Fabulous,  and Twenty Something Online also attended.
PINK is BLO and BLO is PINK, so it’s no surprise that Calgary’s Blo is pinkalicious. I am sure this is one of Elle Woods (Legally Blonde) favorite hubs. Ladies there were friendly. They offered me a head massage, wash and style.
The "Blo ladies"

Being a part of Blo requires Blo’s official education, to ensure every stylist knows what they are doing and techniques are standardize.
I really like the idea of Blo so much that when I knew it is coming to Calgary, I forwarded my Fairchild TV colleagues to do some TV spot coverage.
My Blo-hair, Thank you to Blo lady Christy!
Calgary Blo owners: Thank you for hosting such a sweet event

2. Paige Denim: Jeans that shapes your body
When we start to think it is getting harder and harder to find quality denim jeans, then we think again, there is Paige Denim: Made in USA.

Paige Denims

Holt Renfrew, Calgary hosted a special Paige Denim event showcasing some of the finest denim jeans by this label. Designer of Paige Denim: Paige Adams-Geller was at the event to give her most personal style advice to her fans. 
Paige Adams Geller, Designer for Paige Denim

Paige established her status as one of the most-requested fit models for the hottest denim brands. Being a fashion model herself, she has the body figure to look beautiful in anything. However, not of us are "blessed with the perfect genes" Paige said "But we are bringing you the next best thing: perfect jeans". The designs of these denims target areas of the body that lengthens your legs and slenderize hips and thighs. 
Paige told me that Paige Denims were designed and modelled by her. She wanted these jeans to emphasize the shape of the body and brings out the beautiful legs. I loved the pair of Paige Denim she was wearing with the double zippers on both sides, a part of the "Super Rebellious" collection/style. Others that caught my eyes were "Jadyn-Sandpiper" for women and "Drexel-Slater" for men.

This was Paige's first time in Calgary, and I am glad she said she's enjoying it so far, but unfortunately she couldn't stay longer to experience Banff and other national parks near the city. Growing from Alaska, Paige said she loves the nature and wilderness. She was very friendly and brought a great energy to the store that day.
Paige Denim designs jeans for both women and men. You can find them at Holt Renfrew, Canada or order online at Paige Denim website.
