Ladies, do I have a great place for you to try out. I recently visited Dry Bar, a blow-out bar in Manhattan that is also opening other locations, before a big event. I have to say, I went in skeptical. VERY skeptical. I’ve had my hair blown out a number of times only to have it fall flat a few hours later or not look the way I want it to which then results in me going home, washing my hair and doing it myself. Alas, this was entirely different.
Dry bar has a “menu” of hair blow-outs to choose from like the “Cosmo” (loose curls) or the “Mai Tai” (messy beach waves). The result – you can perfectly articulate the look you want without mis-describing it and having to find photos of your favorite celebs on your cell phone. I opted for a mix of the Cosmo and Mai Tai and was extremely pleased with the outcome.
Let’s take a second to talk about the environment – SUPER cute. First off, they have cappuccinos and tea cookies and pastries for you to nibble on. The flat-screen TV’s play a loop of chick flicks (Sex & The City Movie was on while I was there), the salon is adorned with chandeliers and ipad docks.
And, I’ve saved the best for last, blow outs are $40. Mine lasted two days, which never happens. Totally worth a try. Be sure to make an appointment. Also something I love – they open at 7am and close at 10pm. Perfect for before work or events, and a cute place for a bunch of girlfriends to get together before a big night out.
