A Swanky Salon in the Heart of the City! I am a huge fan of the concept of  Drybar, a hair salon in the US. Since I first discovered it during a 2015  trip to New York. And I kept telling a lot of people about how we don’t have something similar in Bangalore. And it seems the Universe or in this case, Menaka Bhandary heard my wishes and made it come true. I’m talking about the launch of Blown in the heart of the city i.e Vittal Mallya road last night.

At Blown you can get more than just a Blow dry for your hair. It has other services too. To this add the swanky and luxurious decor, a well-stocked wine bar which also has Ice Wines, which I love and a little difficult to find in Bangalore.

But the icing definitely has to be having my favorite hair stylist Yogesh here. Yogesh has been doing my hair and now my 4 year old daughter’s hair for last 8 years. Of course, now you know where I will be if I’m taking a break!  Blown it is!


Blown, India’s finest Blow-dry bar opened its doors on the 1st of December at Vittal Mallya Road. Conceptualised by jet-setter Menaka Bhandary, Blown is a world-class salon that also serves the most exclusive wines on the Indian market – Award-winning French Wines like Terres D’ Aratagnan,  Ice Wines such as the Paradise Ranch Riesling and 100% Organic & Vegan wines such as the Kalala Organic Chardonnay.

Blown is in the heart of Bangalore. It caters to the growing need amongst its populace, for sophisticated hair-care and grooming services. It is also  a space of total relaxation combining incomparably delicious wines with luxurious hair treatments. A customer walking into ‘Blown’ will also be spoilt for choice with the vast array of nail, hair & beauty treatments administered by highly trained therapists.

Here’s what founder Menaka Bhandary has to say about her venture, “Blown is a special project which has been curated with a lot of love, care, passion, and thought. I want every woman to be pampered and groomed into her most glamorous self and make Blown the most coveted salon in Bangalore. ”
