Have blowout, will travel. For those of us here in the greater N.Y.C. area, it's our right to complain about the recent MTA fare hike, which brought the grand total of a monthly MetroCard to $116.50. Imagine our surprise when we found out that the brand new BeautyPass program would be offering up a service that allows you to get unlimited blowouts for less than the price of your subway ride.

For $99 a month, you can get your hair blown out as many times as you want at participating salons throughout Manhattan. Yes, you're reading that right---unlimited blowouts, everywhere in the city. Simply head over to on your computer, smartphone, or tablet, click on the "book" button to tell the concierge where you are and what time you want your blowout, and in fifteen minutes flat, you'll be confirmed for an appointment at one of the top salons in New York City, all of which have been approved by editors and hand-picked by the BeautyPass team.

The salon chosen for you will be no more than a 10- to 15-minute walk from the location you provide, so you can save that free transfer, and no annual commitment is required. Your subscription to BeautyPass will run on a monthly basis and will automatically renew, but can be cancelled at any time. (We're not sure why anyone ever would, but we suppose it may be too much of a good thing for some.)

BeautyPass is currently available in Manhattan, with plans to expand nationwide. In addition to the current blowout package, the service will soon include unlimited spray tans for $99 a month, spa treatments for $59 a month, and manicures for $49 a month. Register now at to start your month of unlimited blowouts if you're in the New York City area, or sign up for the mailing list to be alerted when BeautyPass launches near you! Fingers crossed it goes worldwide just like Uber---sans surge pricing, of course.
