Now that blow dry bars are springing up all over the place, do you ever wonder how much more fabulous a professional blow dry is than one you do yourself? Blow dry bars specialize in styling hair. They don’t cut it or colour it; they dry it, pouf it, and even put it up. They are quick, and at about $35 dollars, are relatively less expensive than salons. Many serve cocktails, too.
Our own Angela D’Amario visited the Drybar for an evening of fun and styling. Here is Angela’s report:
I often fantasize about how much more free time I would have every day if I never needed to style my own hair. My mane is curly and thick, and — beyond wearing it in its naturally wavy form — a pain to tame. Oh, how I envy ladies like Amber Rose who look fabulous bald!
Last week, I visited Drybar, a wash-and-dry-only salon, for the first time. Blow-dry bars have been popping up in major cities across the U.S. They cater to busy women who want hair perfection in a breeze.
While there, I imagined how wonderful it would be to never have to wash and style my own hair again. I asked my stylist, Jamila, whether I could get by with a weekly blowout if I used dry shampoo. Jamila said those with less-oily scalps could do it, so I gave it a go. I was only able to make it four days before jumping head first into the shower to feel the relief of real shampoo.
Drybar is a fantastic option for looking picture-perfect for several days at social events, such as weddings, vacations, and during the holiday-party season. Drybar offers nearly 10 different styles, all cleverly named for cocktails, at $35 per blowout. From curly to straight to up styles, they have a look for every occasion.
I have a wedding next month, so I’ll be booking my Florida-ready blowout soon. I’m thinking Drybar’s beach-wave look.
