The best cheap blow out in L.A.

Blowdry1 A blow out is like a piece of pizza in that there's really no such thing as a bad one.  If your hair is frizzy or unmanageable, even a crummy blow out makes a big difference. But what is it with these $60 and $80 blow outs at salons? For $10 more, you can usually get a hair cut -- which comes with a blow out. Anyway, the Rage started slumming for blow outs about two years ago and last week, she found the best and cheapest -- Mimi at Fantastic Sams on Sunset charged $29.99 to blow out her long, thick and impertinent hair. That's the best price in town and also, this particular branch of the chain is in a mini-mall (easy to park) and somewhat unknown to blow out-addicted women. Mostly guys pop in for quick trims. Don't expect to be offered a latte, but the magazines are current and the women who work here are lovely.
Go see Mimi at 7111 Sunset Boulevard (corner of LaBrea); 323-272-7267.
Got a cheaper and better option? Let's hear it. Post below.
