Jonesboro women can now treat themselves to the latest hair care trend at Body Indulgence Spa and Boutique. Owner Jaime King has expanded her business to include a blowout bar, where customers can have their hair shampooed and styled in a sleek, modern and inviting atmosphere.

Blowout bars are a fast-growing trend, particularly in metropolitan areas. A blowout allows customers the luxurious experience of having their hair styled but is more affordable and less time-consuming than the typical cut and color salon visit.

King said that she decided to bring a blowout bar to Jonesboro after seeing them succeed in other areas.

“We were expanding the boutique and needed a few more massage rooms, so we decided to do the blowout bar,” said King. “I had been to a few down in Little Rock … and decided that it was something Jonesboro needed, because we didn’t have any. We have a lot of salons, but none with just blowouts, so we decided to expand and put one in.”

A visit to Body Indulgence’s blowout bar includes a full shampoo, head and scalp massage, and hair mask. Customers’ hair is then blow-dried and styled to their desire. The stylists at Body Indulgence can do a wide variety of looks for customers who might want to use the blowout to try a different style.

“We can flat iron it, we can do beachy curls, we can do wavy curls, we can do tight curls—it’s kind of up to them,” said King. “We have people come in who have curly hair that want it straightened and people who have straight hair that want it curled. A lot of people like to use it so they don’t have to continuously wash their hair, either.”

While the blowout bar is a great option for events, such as girls’ night out, birthdays and weddings, it is also available as part of Body Indulgence’s all-inclusive platinum package. This full day at the spa includes a Swedish massage, indulgent facial, body wrap and scrub, sauna session, lunch, spa manicure and pedicure with foot scrub, blowout and Arbonne makeup application.

“I’ve had Body Indulgence for seven years,” said King, adding that the recent expansion completes the full day experience offered by the spa. “Customers aren’t having to go to three different places. They can do it all with us—it’s all-inclusive.”
