Retail Roundup: New Tenants Bloom in Rice Village for Spring Plus, Valentine’s pop-ups, Cypress’s first blow-dry bar, and crowdfunding for a unique Houston brand. Featured in article published in  houstoniamag.com  on February 6, 2020 IT FEELS LIKE TEXAS DIDN’T GET THE MESSAGE, but spring is, in fact, on the horizon. And with a new season comes a slew of anticipated store openings—plus forthcoming beauty destinations, crowdfunding for a Houston-based/French-made footwear brand, and pop-ups just in time for Valentine’s Day. Coming Soon to Rice Village And elsewhere... Cypress, prepare for blowouts. Cherry Blow Dry Bar Good hair is coming to Cypress in the form of the community’s first dedicated salon for blowouts. Cherry Blow Dry Bar, a national chain offering blowouts; hair extensions and treatments; makeup applications; lash extensions, and more through a membership model will celebrate its Cypress location grand opening on Feb 10. Franchise owners and Cypress residents Shazia and Hamza Darugar were drawn to Cherry’s membership-based business model and offering an affordable salon experience for time-pressed customers. Memberships start at around $70 a month for two monthly blowouts, and customers can choose from Cherry’s menu of nine different hairstyles, including updos, braids, beachy waves, and voluminous curls. The Cypress salon will also offer four lash styles. The Darugars moved to the U.S. in 2012 from Tanzania, where they ran a successful business. They chose to sacrifice that for a shot at a better life for their family—and better education for their three children. “It has been a rewarding experience for us during these seven years in the U.S., and we cannot wait to open our first business in our hometown of Cypress,” said Shazia.  25712 Northwest Freeway, Suite C, Cypress; grand opening Saturday, Feb 22.

The Seven 2020 Hairstyles That You'll See Everywhere

The Seven 2020 Hairstyles That You'll See Everywhere These hair looks will be huge in 2020, beauty experts and stylists predict. Published on health.com  on December 6, 2019 2020 is just about here—and with the new year  and  new decade, expect to see lots of fresh hair trends storming runways and sidewalks everywhere. These 7 haircuts will define the next nine months, according to the top stylists we spoke to. Get a sneak peek, plus find out how you can create each look. Long bangs Expect to see long, wispy bangs everywhere this year, Jerome Lordet, celebrity stylist at  Pierre Michel salon , tells  Health . If you already have bangs, getting the look is a cinch.  “I recommend using more dry shampoo, as the front pieces can be easily damaged from overuse of hot styling tools,” says Lordet. “I like natural brands for this like  Cleo & Coco . The powder smells great and works well for adding a bit of volume and taking out any left over oils." Uneven blunt bob This easy, chic take on the traditional bob is the perfect style for anyone looking to chop off a few inches while still keeping their 'do beachy and boho.  “This is an edgier version of the timeless style of the bob, which I don’t think will ever fully go away,” says Lordet. “The uneven ends add more dimension to the face and create more movement, for a perfect update to this look to bring you into the new year. ” To keep the ends healthy, Lordet recommends using  Maria Valentino’s hair nourishment serum , which he says contains nutrient-rich plant oils that help seal split ends. Jewelry-like hair accessories For this pretty look, opt for traditional jewelry metals, which keep your 'do chic and polished, MariLynne Cosmillo, director of education for  Cherry Blow Dry Bar , tells  Health . “Think bold—go with silver or gold, with or without gemstones,” says Cosmillo. “Pair a statement piece with your messy top knot or stack-pin back one side of any center-part style.” Messy Updos Updos are always popular, but this unique style combines untamed and wild with sleek and put together—the perfect in-between for casual and dressed up, says Lordet. It's a style similar to a topknot "but reinvented with face-framing long layers,” he says. “This is an easy look you can style whether your hair is freshly washed or dirty. I would again recommend  Cleo & Coco's  dry shampoo for this look to add volume and to bring dry, dirty hair back to life.” Pulled-back texture In 2020, forget about that slicked-back, Kardashian-style hair that was so big in 2019.  “Skip the smoothing prep work before putting your hair up,” says Cosmillo. “Upstyles for 2020 call for texture—think cornrows and twists pulled back for an effortless, swept-up look.” Glossy beach waves Winter might be closing in, but glossy beach waves are going to be everywhere once 2020 hits. "Keep the beach waves, hold the texture," says Cosmillo. "Pair a high gloss with your beach waves and let your color really glow." A smoothing serum, like  R+Co's Tinsel Smoothing Oil , ads extra shine to your waves to get that red carpet-ready look.  Messy ponytails The messy pony is making a comeback, says Lordet. What's the appeal? It's easy to pull together in minutes "by brushing all of your hair into a mid-level pony," he explains. "Once secured, brush the ends with a round brush for an effortless, cool style that will take you through the whole day. You can also wrap a strand of hair around the ponytail holder for a more polished look." A texturizing spray like  Moroccanoil Dry Texture Spray  can help you nail it. View the full article  here

Inc. magazine today revealed that Cherry Blow Dry Bar is No. 1019 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000. “We are honored to be part of such a prestigious group of up-and-coming companies that are disrupting industries,” says Fred Vicario, CEO of Cherry Blow Dry Bar . “Armed with nearly 50 years of combined experience in franchising and expertise in membership models, my brother and I saw an opportunity to create a unique model within the blow dry bar industry; and that's exactly what we did.  We have successfully transformed the original concept of blowout styling into a wildly popular membership model that is thriving.” Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc. , available on newsstands August 20) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.  Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. “The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.” Launched in 2013 and franchising since 2015, Cherry Blow Dry Bar is an expanding franchise that provides premium express services including hair blowouts, hair extensions, makeup services, lash extensions and treatments for a perfectly finished look, all at affordable prices through a unique membership model.
