There are two things in this life I enjoy immensely: a glass of wine and a great blowout. Imagine that someone would finally put these two loves together with the ultimate beauty and bliss destination: Drybar.
The company just recently opened its NYC outpost and I have practically lived there since its opening. The location is gorgeous, open and inviting (beautiful architecture and soothing colors, impeccably maintained, clean beyond belief) and they do one thing: blowouts. No cuts, no color, no chemical processes – just blowouts and they do them WELL, let me tell you.
For $40 + tax and tip and 30 minutes of your insanely busy NYC woman time, they will give you one of the best blowouts of your entire life, wash included. For a tad extra, they’ll throw in a mind-blowing scalp massage that will either put you to sleep or make you want a cigarette (even if you don’t smoke – it’s THAT good.) Oh, and if you want to enjoy a glass of wine or champagne, they can make that happen. Forget Disney World, THIS is the Happiest Place On Earth.
You want to know why this service is necessary? Because it makes you feel AMAZING about yourself. Your rent could be late, your boyfriend could be acting awfully, your boss might be a maniac, but for less than an hour of your time and the cost of a Happy Hour, your hair can look supernova HOT. When your hair looks good, your confidence goes up and you’re fully prepared to take on the world. Get a membership and go often, that’s all I’m saying.
They provide a multitude of blowouts for different hair lengths and types, all of which can be found here. You can also head to their website or download the app and make appointments via the web on the go. But for the price and the experience and the time saved, this place has my heart. Bless Alli Webb for creating this concept.
So, if you can’t find me here working or at an event, you can now find me at the bar. Drybar, that is.
Drybar, 4 West 16th Street, NYC, 10011. To book an appointment, call 212-561-5392 or go online.
