DRAPER, Utah, Sept. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative online eyewear retailer, glasses.com, announced today its partnerships with celebrity stylist Brad Goreski and Blo Blow Dry Bars nationwide, to provide shoppers with a unique opportunity to update their look for the fall season. From Tuesday, Sept. 24 to Saturday, Sept. 28, shoppers who download the new glasses.com iPad app before their appointment will receive 50 percent off their "blo" out at their local Blo Blow Dry Bari.
The glasses.com app features 3Dfit technology that creates a 180-degree model of users' faces, so they can browse and virtually try on hundreds of frames in less than a minute. Shoppers can compare multiple frames side-by-side at one time, apply various photo filters, share picks with friends and family via email and social networks, and place orders directly from the app.
Brad Goreski, known for styling dozens of celebrities and starring in his own Bravo show "It's a Brad, Brad World," has teamed up with the online eyewear shop to bring his impeccable taste and personal allegiance to specs to glasses.com shoppers. "Putting on a new pair of glasses or sunglasses is a simple way to completely transform your look – just like a new hairstyle," Goreski said. Eyewear often inspires the looks I create for myself and others. I want to share my eyewear tips and tricks as well as some of my favorites from glasses.com so people across the country can easily update their look this fall without having to purchase a whole new wardrobe."
Thanks to Brad, shoppers can find his personally curated selection of glasses and style tips through Oct. 31, 2013 at glasses.com. Brad's picks are available through the glasses.com website or on the new glasses.com app for iPad.
"Glasses.com and Blo are a fit made in fashion heaven," said Hilary Chan-Kent, Chief Brand Officer at Blo. "A great hairstyle can easily update your look, just like a new pair of glasses or sunglasses—it's the perfect match," she said. "The glasses.com app makes shopping for eyewear so easy and fun, and we really want our Hair Cadets to get the full experience. Our stylists will be on-hand throughout the week to recommend the perfect glasses or sunglasses for their clients' new look, creating the transformation we're all looking for as we head into a new season."
Glasses.com SVP and General Manager John Graham also expressed his delight about the upcoming event. "We couldn't be more thrilled with these partnerships," Graham said. "Brad has really enhanced our site with his style expertise, and we see our connection to him and Blo as such a natural and synergistic approach to helping people discover their perfect look."
