What: Uptown Blow Dry grand opening party.

Where: Vintage Park Shopping Village in northwest Houston.

The 411: Owner Bianca Huma and husband Valentin Huma welcomed a merry throng to their new digs. Neal Hamil models stuck their heads under the faucets and in the  line of fire from the hair dryers as Uptown Blow Dry stylists demonstrated their talents.

Bottomless champagne glasses — say thank you to Veuve Clicquot — party bites from Mia Bella Trattoria and Strata and desserts from Treat, all residents of Vintage Park fueled the fun. DJ tunes and product giveaways kept guests on their toes.

Who: Carlos Castroparedes, Carlos Castroparedes Jr., Heidi Costia, Sebastian Vitry, Anca Tudose, Ileana Popviciu, Michael Morton, Beth Muecke, Arianna Durden, Ernesto Agraz and Debbie Pakzaban.
