The Best Treatments for Your Hair

We’ve always been told using hot tools on our hair is damaging and shouldn’t be done often. At Vent Blow Dry Bar, we care not only about how your hair looks and feels on the day of your blowout but in the weeks following. By only using the safest hair tools (including Dyson Supersonic hair dryers) and providing four of the best deeply purifying hair masks on the market, you can feel good about your blowout.

In the last decade, Moroccanoil has quickly become one of the world’s most trusted and best-selling hair treatment brands. By utilizing the power of argan oil, found in Argan tree roots throughout Morocco, Moroccanoil products provide hydrating, mineral-rich antioxidants that benefit your hair’s health and give it a natural sheen. The unique formula helps increase the hair’s elasticity, preventing split ends and other breakage while protecting it from damage caused by UV rays. Moroccanoil has developed four masks to nourish and suit your hair’s needs.

When arriving for your Vent blowout, talk to your stylist about your hair concerns. We will tailor each hair treatment experience with a special cocktail of products specific to any of your hair concern.

Intense Hydration Hair Treatment

Best suited for medium to thick hair types with strands that need serious quenching. By quickly sinking deep into each hair strand, this argan-oil creamy mask delivers the intense hydration needed to improve hair elasticity and shine. Moisturizing red algae surrounds to throughly soften your damaged strands (making this the ideal dry weather hair treatment).

Weightless Hydrating Hair Treatment

With this mask, dry ends receive the hydration they deserve without weighing down your hair’s natural bounce. Often times, hair treatments can leave your hair feeling stiff or with a waxy texture but once the Weightless Hydrating Mask is rinsed out, you will be left with airy soft texture that is 100 per cent manageable. With no residue left behind, you (and your hair!) will be floating all day.

Restorative Hair Treatment Experience  

If you tend to use hot tools on a daily basis or have been colouring your hair for years, this is the perfect mask for you. We love to curl and straighten our hair, but the heat can cause weakness and damage that is just as severe as using chemicals to colour it. With this highly-restorative mask of shea butter and reconstructive proteins, each hair strand is penetrated and restored. Ask your stylist about this mask, you’ll be surprised how many years of damage it can address in just seven minutes.

Smoothing Hair Treatment

Ever feel like no matter how much conditioner or different treatments you use, your hair still becomes frizzy five minutes after stepping outside? We finally have a solution! This mask treatment contains concentrated argan butter, argan oil and coconut-derived fatty acids to deliver deep hydration and leave hair impossibly soft. Say goodbye to flyaways and baby hair frizz even in the most humid climates.

Hair Treatment Options Vent blow dry bar

Scalp Balance Treatment

Detoxify, soothe and balance your dry or oily scalp with this ultimate treatment that can be added to any of the above experiences. Containing lavender, geranium, ginger root essential oils, and the band’s signature argan oil to nourish, this experience is the ideal way to reduce flakiness of the scalp in dry months (winter) and balance excess sebum in the oily months (summer).

If you choose to add a hair mask experience or scalp balance experience to your blowout appointment, it will follow your wash and extend your scalp massage. The mask is generously applied and massaged for approximately five to ten minutes. Hair treatment experiences are a $20 add-on to your blowout.

Pixie Cut Blowouts

You finally did it—you took the plunge and cut off your hair. It takes confidence to pull off short hair and we applaud you!

A lot of things are new when you first get a pixie cut: the frequency of washing your hair, what products you use and the way you style it. At Vent Blow Dry Bar, we love the creativity of styling short hair and believe pixie cut blowouts are just as much for you as anyone else.

Short hair is a game changer—we get it. With the new length, your hair is harder to reach and falling in new ways you never thought possible. At Vent Blow Dry Bar, our hair stylists love to work with new “pixie cut owners” to teach them how to properly blowout and style their hair something we call “pixie cut blowouts.” If you’ve had short hair your whole life, our stylists would be happy to help you refresh your style. Whether it’s a twist, a braid, a new texture or simply a different side part, we can help you find a go-to style you’ll want to replicate often.

Just because your hair is short doesn’t mean your pixie cut blowouts should be! You should always allow a full hour for your Vent Blow Dry Bar experience. We want you to feel pampered, relaxed and ready to face the day (or night!) ahead. With our scalp massage, product consultation, and unique styling, you’ll be wanting to extend your time at Vent Blow Dry Bar with a drink or two.

Hoping your pixie cut blowouts can last week to week? Talk to your stylists about our full range of professional-grade Moroccanoil products that can extend your style at home (Moroccanoil dry shampoo for both light and dark hair tones is one of our favorites!).

For most who decide to get the big chop, their motivation is often to have less overall maintenance. We’ll take on any maintenance for you with our short-hair/pixie cut blowouts offers. If you have a cut ear length and shorter, you won’t be paying our regular blowout price. Visit our pricing page for details.

Selfish People Live Longer

You’ve all heard Nicki Minaj’s famous line in The Other Women, “selfish people live longer.”

Well we must agree to some extent. The importance of being selfish with your time and creating time to reconnect with your girlfriends is essential in your overall happiness and well-being. Unfortunately, with the busyness of today’s digital world, it is often difficult to not only find the time to be “selfish” but to justify it.

On a bright and sunny summer Sunday, eight women from across Toronto took two hours out of their day and had a wonderfully selfish morning at Vent Blow Dry Bar.

Vent blow dry bar influencer event in liberty village torontoMoments after stepping into our space, the ladies were handed mimosas complete with organic, cold-pressed, Zen Orange Buda Juice. While sipping their morning cocktail, the ladies browsed through our style menu to pick from one of our eight blowout options. From straight and sleek to Hollywood waves, each lady found a style that fit their personality and mood that day.Vent blow dry bar influencer event in liberty village toronto

The luxurious and relaxing scalp massage during their washes set the tone for the day. The busyness of the week disappeared with each motion of their temple massages. The smell of our rich Moroccanoil products filled the air as they were worked through from roots to ends, creating a clean canvas for styling.

With clean and nourished hair, the ladies rejoined at the bar for more mimosas and to begin their blowout. With our favourite rom-coms and upbeat music playing in the background, the ladies chatted and vented about their weeks over the quiet hum of the Dyson Supersonic hair dryers. With no mirrors to worry about, relaxing was the only thing on their minds (besides mimosas that is!).

Vent Blow Dry Bar, we aspire to have you feel as good as you look. Throughout the day, Buda Juice ginger shots were passed out for that extra immune system boost, as well as Nespresso coffee for that much-needed energy boost.

With each hairstyle complete and lady pampered, they were spun around to see the final product. The instant confidence of the ladies lit up the room and set the tone for not only their day, but their entire week.

Selfish doesn’t have to be a bad word. Most of the time when people refer to themselves as “selfish”, it actually means they are finally taking well-deserved time out for themselves. In our ever-busy society it can seem like selfishness is a negative trait but at Vent Blow Dry Bar, we recognize that there are very few times we can be selfishbut your blowout with your girlfriends at Vent can always be one of them.

What is a Blowout?

It’s not a stupid question. Blowout bars are a fairly new concept in Canada, and Vent Blow Dry Bar has taken that concept one step further by actually being a blowdry bar serving custom cocktails during your experience!

A lot of clients come in unsure of what to expect, what to ask for, how long it takes, or what’s included. So, here is exactly what to expect during your first blowout experience at Vent Blow Dry Bar.

blow·out

blōˌout/

noun

; an act or instance of blow-drying hair.

It was less than a decade ago when North America started seeing the first hair studios dedicated to only washes and styling — no cuts or colours. It became quickly obvious, there is a need among women (and men) for a hair refresh in between seeing their colourist. Vent Blow Dry Bar, took that need one step further.

Have you ever tried getting ready with a group of girls in a one-bathroom condo? Someone is going to get burned by the straightener and someone’s foundation bottle is going to be spilled. Vent provides the opportunity to chat with your girlfriends over a cocktail and leave the “getting ready” to the professionals.

Upon arriving for your blowout at Vent, your stylist will greet you in the front lounge and bring you to the bar, where you choose from our style and drink menu. You can choose from eight styles: voluminous curls, hollywood waves, simple updo, formal updo, sleek straight, classic straight, soft curls and tousled beachy curls. If you want something not on the menu, don’t be afraid to talk to your stylist! This is also when you can tell your stylist a little bit about your hair’s tendencies. Do you get a lot of frizz? Does your hair hold well? Do you hate products in your hair? We have different treatments and products for every hair type, help us find the right one for you!

Once you’ve chosen your style, you’ll be led around to the washing stations. At these modern washing stations, you don’t have to deal with your stylist’s sleeve hitting your face with every rinse. Your stylist will stand behind the sink and ensure the water temperature is to your liking. Enjoy a scalp massage or a soothing hair treatment from our Moroccanoil hair line.

After your wash, you’ll be led back to your bar seat where you can choose a beverage. We have a variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic options, including 10 Buda Juices. With your blowout, we offer complimentary Nespresso coffee, sparkling water and David’s Tea. Sip and enjoy the chick flick playing or chatting with your girlfriend as your stylist blowdrys your hair. At Vent Blow Dry Bar, we use Dyson Supersonic blow dryers that are extremely quiet. Unlike traditional hair salons, Vent’s chairs were designed to face the bar instead of the mirrors — we want you to enjoy, not stress about the progress!

Each blowout takes approximately an hour (depending on if you add on a hair treatment during the wash or how elaborate your updo might be). Once your stylist is finished the traditional blowout and style, feel free to add on a braid or finish up with extra-strength hairspray if your hair tends to fall out.

Time to turn the chair to see your beautiful blowout! Let your stylist know if you need any changes and finish enjoying your drink — there’s no rush!

For our clients who are first-time to blowouts, we are so excited — you’re going to be addicted! Blowouts offer that instant confidence you need on crappy Mondays or before a special occasion. Vent Blow Dry Bar aspires to slow your life down for an hour and give you (and your hair) an unforgettable experience. Life is full of appointments, come for the experience.
