Amanda Diedrich keeps Windy City tresses tamed.
Stylist Amanda Diedrich of Blohaute
Tired of the salon scene, master stylist Amanda Diedrich established her solo business venture, Blohaute, as an on-demand blowout service. “The business was a way for me to be more creative and experience new opportunities while still doing what I love,” she says. With nine years of experience under her belt, Diedrich quickly gained a following, but what she didn’t foresee was how influential social media would become for her brand. With each 60-second hair tutorial she posted, her Instagram page (@blohaute) gained momentum. Today, Diedrich has 146,000 (and growing) Instagram followers and has rebranded her company to focus on education, extensions and bridal. As a lead educator for Bombshell Extensions, which range in price from $750 to $2,000, Diedrich travels the country training hairstylists in all methods of extensions. Diedrich has styled hair for celebrities such as Jessie James Decker and Kelsea Ballerini, but it’s her North Shore and Chicago clientele who feel lucky to have her in their own backyard. blohaute.com
