With local non-essential small businesses being closed, you may not have the opportunity to go to your local hair stylist to make your look good – or even receive those valuable tips that help salvage your hair’s beauty at home.

Pre-COVID, I would stop by Blo-It-Out Lounge for all my hair needs. If you didn’t notice, I recently went blonde and that’s all thanks to Blo-It-Out {shout-out to Zonia}! Being a very dark brunette, it obviously took a lot of trips to get to the blonde I’m at now. That’s me in the photo below!

If you know your hair requires more maintenance, then you may be struggling like I am. Lucky for you I reached out to the hair professionals at Blo-It-Out Lounge and asked if they could share some tips!

If you end up going to Blo-It-Out Lounge after reading this {once everything is back to normal}, please let them know I sent you!
