Burlingame Avenue - Be Cool, Be Trendy, Be Beautiful
This post is written by my guest blogger Susan.
Take a walk down Burlingame Avenue and discover treasures you did not know existed. I wandered into Halo, a blow-dry bar quite by accident, and was (no pun intended) blown away. Blow-dry bars are the new hot thing, and here it is, right in the heart of Burlingame. This is a hair salon…but they don’t do cuts, they don’t do color; they do blow-outs that leave you with full and shiny hair that lasts for about 5 days.
There’s a whole menu designed to give you the look you want, whether it’s a straight ‘do or a fancy coif for an elegant evening or prom. (Don’t worry if you want curls…they can do that too.)
The 45 minute blowout is preceded by a shampoo and conditioning treatment, and if you want to add jewels or feathers…no problem. They’ll even do your makeup for a full glamour experience.
You can even take your BFFs for a Girls Night Out party. Host your bridal shower or bachelorette party at Halo, and for the big day, get a group rate for the Bridal Suite for hair, makeup, dressing room and catering. For a unique gift idea, give a Halo House-Call for anyone needing a pick-me-up (new moms, hospital patients, hotel guests). Stuck for something to give for Valentine’s Day? Look no further.

Cost: 45 minute blowout - $35
millie mango is a modern consignment clothing shop. They offer gently used boutique brands at affordable prices, and the store is so beautiful that you will feel as if you are in a high-end boutique. When I walked into the store they offered cookies, muffins and beverages, just like a fancy designer shop, and the clothes and shoes were in “like new” condition.
