Capelli Salon knows how to host an apropos party. At BYOB night at the salon, guests brought their own blowdryers (get it?) so the experts could teach them how to do their own 'do.
Owner Younes Ounzar threw these kinds of soirees when he had a salon in Manhattan. A year after opening up the salon in Dallas, he hosted the first after-hours BYOB party.
"Ladies always have questions on how to blow out their hair properly," Ounzar told us. "This is a good chance for them to learn."
In addition to learning how to create a knockout new 'do — from straight to wavy — attendees indulged in a mini feast of shrimp cocktail, smoked salmon, vegetable crudité, cheese and crackers, baklava, wine, and Izze sparkling juice.
At the party — or "seminar," as Ounzar called it — women also learned how to properly wash their hair.
Stylists taught the ladies how to use their own hairdryers after going over washing methods.
"We need to show guests how to use their dryer correctly," said Ounzar, pictured here with customer Monica Nagy. "My dryer is 2400 watts, but not everyone's is. Hair is like metal — the hotter the better — but not all dryers give off the same amount of heat."
