Drybar








No cuts. No color. Just blowouts. That's the concept behind Drybar. Genius, right? How many times have I procrastinated on the dreaded blow dry and wished I could have someone else do it for me? Well, now I can! And that's exactly what I did on Friday afternoon. Their menu ranges from the Manhattan (Sleek and Smooth) to the Southern Comfort (lots of volume) and everything in between. I went with the Mai Tai (messy and beachy) mostly because this is the one style I can never quite get right when doing my own hair. I left feeling energized and ready for my night out with the girls. If I'm not careful, this could definitely become my newest guilty pleasure.

Allright, I admit you look beautiful here, but you always look beautiful! I guess maybe I don't quite understand the concept since I don't have any hair.

melissa said...

OMG, that is this lazy girl's dream come true! But it would be a nightmare for my bank account! What a great concept!

Torrie said...

Your hair looks beautiful! How fun to have this done right before your night out too. I have never heard of a dry bar, but this would be the perfect gift for a friend... have it done together, and then go out & have some fun!

Legs said...

I really wish they had this in DC! You're gorgeous!!

Jamie said...

Bren and I had a Drybar date back in May and I blogged about it. That place is the BOMB!! I was addicted for awhile, I had to shut myself off!!! Really great for when you have somewhere to go though!

OH how fun! I've heard about this! Where is it at?

PursuitOfLLT said...

I love these kinds of places! There's a great one in Chicago called Blo-Dri and I swear by it. If I could I'd be there daily! They also do more jazzy stuff like for weddings etc. I had them do my hair for halloween last year with my medusa headband and it was so fun!

Annie said...

Forget the place!! How could they go wrong with hair like yours? :) Gorgeous.

Mara said...

your hair looks SO pretty! Did you get the Groupon for it awhile back? I wanted to but they sold out during the day (which is so crazy..I think they sold over 2,000!) It was $20 instead of what they normally charge. I hope they do one again :)
