You may have seen them in bigger cities, like New York, Las Vegas or Los Angeles. Now, a one-of-a kind type of salon is preparing for its grand opening in Sioux Falls and it's one that's guaranteed to blow women away.
From the outside, A Perfect 10 Nail and Beauty Bar on W. 69th Street in Sioux Falls looks like your typical salon. One step through the door, however, and you'll soon realize it's anything but.
"We don't do any cuts, any color. Just manicures, pedicures and blow outs," said owner of A Perfect 10 Nail and Beauty Bar, Canada Lyttle.
They're known as blow-dry bars; salons dedicated to washing and blow-drying hair, minus the cut or color. For the past several years, this new type of business has been gaining popularity across the country.
"It’s a pamper, it's a treatment. It's something ladies can come in and get done that makes them feel good, gives them a salon style in a matter of 45 minutes to an hour and lasts them a couple of days," explained Lyttle.
Instead of spending $50 to $150 or more to get your hair styled when you get it cut and colored, you can come to a salon like A Perfect 10, get charged half the cost and get out of the door in half the time.
"You can come in and get a blow-out style in small amount of time and look good and feel good," said Lyttle.
The salon doesn't stop at blow-outs. You can add to your do with a quick manicure and pedicure
"We specialize in the gel polish and natural nails. We don't do any artificial (nails) so you notice it doesn’t smell when you come in here," said Lyttle.
Store owner Canada Lyttle has opened three salons in just three years and bringing the concept to Sioux Falls was the next step.
"Just with requests from people that have traveled to Rapid City from Sioux Falls, they’ve just begged for something like this to come, so we finally decided to make this adventure," said Lyttle. “There’s a lot more excitement, way more than I anticipated, so it's very exciting and I can’t wait to see what's to come."
Lyttle's two other salons are located in Rapid City. The Sioux Falls location will be holding a grand opening Friday at 9 a.m. at Remington Pointe.
