This is pretty cool: instead of paying $40 or $60 for a blowout, you could get one for free as part of the Bumble and bumble. University Model Project at The Shop Salon in Bethesda. They are looking for female hair models for free professional blow dries on Sunday, March 9 and Monday, March 10, and they're even throwing in a complimentary product for each participant. If you want in, send a current photo and your cell phone number to email@example.com, and make sure your photo shows the length of your hair and its natural texture, as in not curled or straightened.
