BLOWOUT

1 BANGZ

23 S. Fullerton Ave., Montclair, 973.746.8426, bangz.net

“There are as many varieties of blowouts as there are varieties of the ponytail,” says general manager Israel Cronk, and Bangz takes them to a new art form. You want sexy, romantic big curls, ask for the Novella blowout.
Looking for that ultra-flat, sleek look? Request the Flatiron. Prices range from $35 to $105 depending on the style and stylist you choose. A tip: If you want curls, refrain from washing your hair for a day or two prior to your blowout. Hair that is too clean won’t hold the curl for long.
