Femme Fatale

Convincing many girls to bare it all at a spray tan facility in front of a technician may be a tricky task—but Femme Fatale can bring that bronze to your home. Five to nine people is $40 per person plus a nominal travel, set up, and cleaning fee. The salon uses the popular Infinity Sun line.
The ultra-feminine blow dry bar chain has great wedding options, with in-salon styling for the bride ($160), bridesmaids, MOB, and flowergirl (price varying on desired blowout). Off-location, the rates are $125 for the bride and $75 for everyone else.

Finally, the latest blow dry bar in the area is also superb for planning a party with romcoms playing in the background. The Chestnut Hill salon is breezy and relaxing, and if anyone is a stress eater, Pinkberry is next door. Wellesley and Lynnfield locations will open later this summer.
