Air954, 1525 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33304 

Fresh off my "Perfect Getaway" from Key West, I blew back into Miami feeling rested, relaxed and ready to take on the world! I had places to go, people to see and prettying-up appointments to make. And that last part — well, it was at DEFCON status. 

After a few days off of work, my hair was matted to my head from the blustery sea air, my eyelash extensions were shredded to nubs (because of an allergic reaction to new glue) and to make matters worse, I needed a new dress (STAT) for a special occasion with my bae. After explaining the aforementioned to my stylist, Jackie.. 

She told me point blank: "You need some major Air954 in your life, like, ASAP." We both laughed out loud because man, was she right (per usual.) That’s why her nickname is "The President." Anyhow, I digress…

Air954 is every fashionista’s wet dream: a blow dry bar and clothing boutique wrapped into one. When you walk in, it’s got this beachy/boho/cottage-like vibe: it’s warm and welcoming. Before your blow-out (they offer conditioning treatments, too) you can sip wine, have a gourmet coffee; all while enjoying some major retail therapy…

They have beautiful dresses, rompers, beachwear, jewelry, purses, hats and chachkies for your house. (Everything I’m wearing in the blog is from their boutique and I wanted it all! Yes, even the jewelry.) The reason I think this place works? 

It’s owned by BFF’s, Melissa Nichols and Kristine Davis; two fabulous women who appreciate looking and feeling great. Their #on fleek enthusiasm is palpable. What’s more, they realize not ALL blow dry bars are created equal. That’s why…

The dynamic duo has put a lot of personal love into creating something special, unique and one-of-a-kind. My visit was full of great conversation, incredible customer service and they spruced me up like nobody’s business. At the end of the day, they say…it’s all about giving fashionistas a "One Stop Glamour Shop" and that’s why it’s one of my NEW favorite things. 

Air954 is located in Fort Lauderdale off Sunrise Boulevard. If you’re coming from Miami take 95N and exit onto Sunrise (East.) After a few miles, the road splits, so, make sure you MERGE LEFT. The bar/boutique is a few blocks down on the West side of the road in Plaza Del Mar. There’s plenty of parking. 

Monday-Saturday 10am-6pm, Sunday 12pm-5pm 
Walk-in’s are welcome, but appointments are preferred 954-306-3367.
