Beauty and the ’Burgh: 7 Spots to Go to Get Glam

No longer restricted to bigger cities, some of the latest cosmetic innovations and trends — think blowouts, microblading and lash extensions, just to name a few — are taking place in Pittsburgh’s evolving beauty scene.

GLOW Blotique

Sewickley: 541 Beaver St.

There’s no excuse for a bad hair day, at least not at GLOW Blotique Blow Dry Bar.

Opened by Teresa Duff and Aimee Vickers in the fall of 2016, GLOW leaves the cuts and colors to full-service salons and instead specializes in professional blowouts. Clients can have their hair washed, dried and blown out in about 30 to 45 minutes, and the styles (options include messy beach waves and straight, sleek locks) can last for days.

GLOW also does wedding hair and updos and occasionally will pair with other local businesses for events, including a recent “braid bar.” A mainstay in other cities, the blowout concept has yet to take strong root in Pittsburgh, which is why Duff, whose education is in art history, and Vickers, whose background is in business, decided to tap into the growing niche market. That, and a desire to make people feel beautiful.

“That’s what we’re really all about,” Duff says. “When you’re having a good hair day, you just feel like a million bucks.”
