When my friend told me about Primp Blow Dry Bar in Hamburg, NY a few months ago, I’ve been itching to have a reason to get a blowout. I immediately followed them on Instagram because I knew I’d love seeing the jobs they’ve done on clients and the aesthetic of their overall studio is too pretty. Not only are they super talented with hair, they know how to decorate!
Even though it wasn’t until I won their giveaway via Instagram that I booked an appointment, it seemed to be fate because I ended up having an event the same day! I just have to say thank you to the owner’s daughter for picking me– she’s the one that randomly chooses their winners– and if it weren’t for her I would not have looked half as good at this year’s white party!
A Little About the Space
Oh my gosh you guys I basically died and went to heaven when I walked in their BEAUTIFUL, plush, modern, comfortable studio. The pretty oak floors immediately give a warmth to the space, but everything else is feminine, soft, and so clean and sleek. We even talked about the wall color for almost five minutes because it’s so perfect. It cohesively blends the grey tones of the chairs, light pink accents throughout with the white stations and trim. It’s warming and cooling, and it changes as the sun hits it in different ways throughout the day. I mean, its even called “Agreeable Grey.”
All the little details were so thought out too. They have a cute picture wall with a white brick wallpaper. It’s now become the signature look for their post-appointment photos of clients. Pinks and grays are their main decor colors with fluffy alternating pillows and a mix of suede, velour and leather textures everywhere. I couldn’t believe how cute the aprons were with rose gold printed bobby pins on them. Even their tools matched. Not just each other but their decor! The T3 line of hair dryers, straighteners and curlers were lined up on all the stations. The white and pink are just so stylish and polished, especially within Primp.
Hair, Make-Up, Party!
We know they do blowouts, but did you know they offer make-up services as well? I could tell they knew exactly what they were doing building a cute sitting/hanging out area. Complete with a counter space, perfect for drinks or food. Yes, they host hair and makeup parties! It’s perfect for wedding parties, pre-bachelor parties, or just a birthday or girls day. The vibes are the perfect mix of relaxing with amazing energy because everyone is so bubbly and nice.
The Important Part: The Blowout
Okay, I’m not one to get blowouts too much because I can handle my hair pretty well myself. It really does whatever I need it to do most of the time. Then, I’ll go somewhere to get my hair done professionally and I’m just like, no, Olivia, you actually suck. From the products (they use Amika and it smells HEAVENLY) to Lisa’s delicate and professional way of handling my hair, I walked out of there knowing I would never be able to execute such a blowout at home. It was bouncy, full, curly, but styled and I knew it was going to hold.
I guess I’ll just have to go back– a lot.
The whole process feels so great. Pampering yourself, getting your hair played with, chatting with genuinely nice people, there was nothing not to love about the experience. Even at the end, I was so excited when it was my turn to model my blowout against the brick wall for my own glowing photos. Why does the ring light make everything look so freaking good?? What girl wouldn’t enjoy it?
I was so excited about my hair I almost forgot part of the giveaway was a T3 Blow Dryer and Brush!! I’ll be doing a review on the T3 line in the next few weeks, so stay tuned!
Anyways, thanks to the Lisa and the Primp team for having me I really can’t wait to go back! Now it’s your turn, book your appointment for the next wedding you’re attending, or girls night out, or maybe just because it’s Tuesday. Just do it. .
