New Carrollwood salon offers timely services

CARROLLWOOD — After noticing the Carrollwood area lacked a salon that offered time-saving hair styling options such as blowouts and updos, Nicole Gavin decided to make the leap from corporate marketing and public relations to start her own business.

Brush, Blow & Go has opened in Carrollwood with a name that Gavin says reflects the convenience of the salon's offerings, which also include beauty services such as makeup.

"This is a great one-stop shop, and it's really a simple, affordable luxury," said Gavin, owner. "The great part is that you're still going to have your own hairdresser.

"The best thing about this is all we do is blowouts and updos for special events and all kinds of beauty services."

Brush, Blow & Go offers blowouts for $35, which Gavin said is a huge timesaver for a lot of women.

"A good blowout will last four days," Gavin said.

The salon offers full and mini makeovers, waxing and faux eyelashes. There is currently a special Homecoming package, which includes hair and makeup for $100. During the month of October, all new customers receive $5 off a blowout.

Brush, Blow & Go is located 13018 N Dale Mabry Highway, next to Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza. For more information, call (813) 442-8179, or visit brushblow
