Opening late fall, Cherry Blow Dry Bar is bringing blowouts to Atlanta just in time for holiday soirees. Located at Buckhead Exchange just off Peachtree Road, the salon is the franchise’s debut Georgia location and features 15 chairs where groups are welcome to socialize. The beauty services include blowouts, dry styles, updos, braids and makeup applications.
“Our goal is to create a place where women can leave looking and feeling beautiful without breaking the bank,” says Managing Partner Christan Pillat. Blowouts start at $39, while membership pricing starts at $59 for two blowouts per month. For a little extra pampering, customers can add scalp massages to their services for $12. In addition to hairstyles, look for express eye and lip services including lip gloss or smoky eye applications to give you the perfect touch of glam for any occasion.

A UNIQUE TWIST ON ATLANTA’S PAST
Now through Dec. 31, the Atlanta History Center’s exhibit “Atlanta in 50 Objects” showcases items that make our city unique. Curators solicited ideas from the public then narrowed the nearly 300 entries down to the final 50. An unconventional range of items fill the space, including Martin Luther King Jr.’s 1964 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech manuscript and an 11-foot-long Chick-fil-A billboard cow. Admission is $16.50 for adults, $13 for students and $11 for children ages 4 to 12; free for children 3 and younger.
