Time to Get Glammed Out

LifestylesThe Glam Bar in Red Bank had their official launch part on Friday, March 23. All that attended walked the red carpet, getting the chance to check the place out and enjoy complementary food and drinks.

The Glam Bar is not your average salon. It specializes in blowouts only. They follow their motto: “no cuts + no color = all glam.” Like their website theglambars. com states, this allows the salon to truly concentrate on styling customers every need.

Elio Ventrella is the owner of the salon. This is his first time working in the field of hair and make-up. In 2007, Ventrella was diagnosed with breast cancer. He would go to salons for massages and other services where he would overhear women complaining about their appointments never being on time and rarely ever getting a good blow-out.

When he finished treatment in 2010, he returned to his job at Macy’s where he had been working for six years. “I lost my passion and drive,” said Ventrella. That is when he quit his job, applied for a business license and the idea of The Glam Bar was born.

He studied many other blowout bars before opening his own. “I went into any blow-out bar I could find and took elements from each,” said Ventrella.

For $40, customers can get the basic services that include a blowout, the make-up bar, the brow bar and the event bar.

Blow-outs are all the same price regardless of the length of your hair. The make-up bar provides customers with a plethora of looks to choose from. The event bar is a service provided by the employees to help the customer put an entire outfit together for the special event she is attending. The Glam Bar provides their own wardrobe for customers to choose from and a “glam coach” for all of their styling needs.

The glam coach is not only there to help with fashion and styling, but the glam coach is also a certified life coach. “We don’t only want to blend you from your exterior, but your interior too,” says Ventrella.

 Don’t really feel like leaving the house to get glamorized? That’s alright, The Glam Bar will provide their services in the privacy of your own home. They can host a glam party in your house where they will provide the drinks and, of course, the blow-outs, the make-up and the outfits.

 The Glam Bar is eco-friendly. too. Every customer will enter their desired service into an iPad owned by the salon and will then be emailed a receipt; no paperwork involved.

 Customers can also request their whole experience to be eco-friendly. This means that everything being used for each treatment will be 100 percent ecofriendly.

 “One day you’re in and one day you’re out,” said Ventrella. He knows how difficult it can be for businesses to get started. That is why it is so important for businesses to be coming up with new and unique ideas.

 This is exactly what Ventrella is doing. Taking the average blowout bar and putting a glamorous spin on it.

 So come to The Glam Bar on 116 Broad Street in Red Bank this Friday for their opening day and get glammed out.
