Daily Deal: Ritz-Carlton and Marimekko

One hair salon, one boutique, two ways to save some dough and look divine.

Bargain Blowouts

Start your weekend early this Thursday by getting your hair did and sipping free bubbly.

Through their Bubbles and Blowouts promotion, The Ritz-Carlton in South Beach is offering ladies $50 blowouts and all the champagne they can drink. Ladies can also nosh on complimentary cheese and fruits while they get their locks styled.

This haute happy hour also includes free valet service and happens every Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m., thanks to the RC's Jennifer Steinmark.

“I started it because I have curly hair and I have a routine of getting my hair blow dried every week, which can be hard while balancing work and trying to maintain a social life,” said Steinmark. “I thought this was a great way to get pampered while hanging out with your girlfriends."

Finnishing Touches

In need of some home furnishings or apparel? Marimekko in the Design District is having a huge summer sale. The Finnish textile and clothing design company, which is known for fun and unique prints, has items marked up to 50 percent off. Find bright frocks for women and girls on the racks as well as shelves brimming with dainty notebooks, colorful totes and cute houseware goods like aprons, pillows and towels.
