Hair flip! Blo Blow Dry Bar in Dupont Circle got the grand opening treatment with a VIP party featuring clothing designer and TV personality Whitney Port, flowing Veuve Clicquot Rosé, sweet treats from Frosting A Cupcakery and, of course, stylists offering red carpet-ready ’dos.
Port and Blo owner Maha Sharma mixed and mingled with fashion-forward guests like Washington Humane Society’s Heather Theunissen, BET’s Angel Elliott and T.H.E. Artist Agency’s Sondra Ortagus, while others perused the blowout menu and transformed their tresses with styles like the Executive Sweet, Holly Would and Pillow Talk.
Best In Show
Port popped down from New York for the opening event, rocking a black crop top from N/TICE; a miniskirt with decorative, exposed zippers from Australian designer Bec & Bridge; Rebecca Minkoff heels; and her signature beautiful blond locks. Before departing the party, she slipped into an outfit from her own Whitney Eve label. –Photos by Paul Morigi
