As an intellectual property and business attorney for the past 20 years, Nancy Ayala has met her fair share of entertainers and entrepreneurs—so much so that she decided to launch a business of her own.
Ayala knew she wanted to do something different—something trailblazing, but also something that would help her embrace her femininity. “Every woman knows that great hair can make you feel invincible,” Ayala says, “and I have always surrounded myself with strong, poised women.”
It was with that revelation that Ayala realized she wanted to open up a Blo Blow Dry Bar franchise in Las Vegas. It was a natural fit for a city that runs on weddings and bachelorette parties.
“It’s just fun to get people ready for big events—and for little events—just to feel a little more fierce,” she says.
Blo offers a menu of seven signature hairstyles, and the salon’s stylists take each client through an in-depth consultation before choosing a proper ’do. There’s Ayala’s personal favorite, Pillow Talk, a sultry take on beachy, bed-head tousled waves, or the bouncy and voluminous Holly Would—plus a handful of updos like the perfectly coifed High Society.
Additional pampering and beauty services include full-service makeup applications that will make you feel your best for a memorable night on the town. “Las Vegas is a city where a woman wants to look her best,” Ayala says. No matter the event, Blo has all the beauty bases covered. 3900 Paradise Road, 702-929-3342, blomedry.com.
