Blowout Co. owner Leslie Embry first discovered the blowout salon phenomenon on a trip to Santa Barbara in the fall of 2011. After a one of a kind experience that left her feeling pampered and beautiful, she decided to bring the idea to Nashville. Eight months later, she left her twelve year teaching and coaching career behind and opened her first salon, The Blowout Co of Nashville. Over the next five years she added 3 more locations in Brentwood, The Gulch, and Chattanooga and took her team from 8 to over 40 employees. Leslie's goal is for everyone who walks out of her salons to feel beautiful and confident.
