Dorie Speigel : From shampooing and blow-drying, to styling, braiding and up-do’s, to makeup magic, eyebrow shaping and semi-permanent lashes, the hairstyling and makeup professionals at Blow N’ Go! LA cater to their clients’ every immediate beauty need, and make them feel Red Carpet-ready for every occasion at which they need to look their best. Plus, they know exactly how to tame curly and textured hair, and make it behave. But Blow N’ Go! LA is not Dorie’s first L.A. beauty venture: her men’s grooming spa, The Green Room for Men on Pico Boulevard near Century City, has been a thriving business for 8 years. Dorie’s core belief is that “people need and deserve to feel cared for,” and since she is so good at caring for them, many of her male clients’ girlfriends and wives began to demand the same treatment. And that’s how Blow N’ Go! LA was born.
