About Blo Blow Dry Bar

Blo is North America’s Original Blow Dry Bar since 2007. Their no cut, no color concept has reinvented hair care and has helped them grow into the largest blow dry bar franchise chain in the world. The chain plans to continue expansion in the United States, Canada, Asia and Europe.


Since it launched in 1964, TOPSHOP has become a major style authority and one of fashion’s biggest success stories. TOPSHOP began as Peter Robinson’s Top Shop, a young fashion brand in the basement of the former department chain, Peter Robinson Ltd. The first standalone TOPSHOP store was opened in 1974. In 1994, the TOPSHOP flagship store was born, as the brand took over a 90,000 sq ft space at London Oxford Circus. It remains there today, and is considered the world’s largest fashion store on the high street, attracting over 200,000 shoppers each week. In April 2009, the first American TOPSHOP store opened its doors in New York. In 2005, TOPSHOP showed its own in-house designed collection, Unique, as part of the official London Fashion Week schedule. The only high-street brand to show on schedule, Unique’s witty approach to style has made it a first choice for those who like to stay ahead.
