So there is nothing that will boost a girl’s confidence faster than a good blowout. Back in NYC (and when I was making some good money), I would make frequent trips to Blow, New York City’s blowdry-only establishment on the Upper East Side. There’s something that makes you feel just so fabulous when you know that your hair will look professionally done before a friend’s party or even a night out with friends…so when I heard that LA was finally picking up on the trend, I was elated, to say the least.
I have to say, Drybar just might have Blow beat. I made my way over the west side, Brentwood to be specific. I absolutely love the feel that Drybar is actually supposed to look like a BAR. The station chairs are all lined up behind an actual bar (with bartender) and they even serve cocktails and snacks. There’s also a phenom menu for you to choose exactly what kind of blowout that you want…I went with the “Southern Comfort,” a favorite liqour of mine as well. The Southern Comfort gave me big hair and lots of volume. I instructed my stylist that I did want the volume but that I didn’t want “Texas hair” and she knew exactly what I meant, which I found really, really funny.
For $35, this is honestly a great deal…Blow charges between $40-$60 and at Drybar, you definitely get a much wider selection of what kind of blowout that you want.
“Straight Up” – signature blowout
“Manhattan” – sleek and smooth
“Cosmopolitan” – lots of loose curls
“Southern Comfort” – big hair and lots of volume
“Mai Tai” – messy, beach hair
“Shirley Temple” – pre-teen blowout
“Floater” – head massage
