Drybar opens in Manhattan Beach!

You know how much I adore Drybar (hello like a million posts here) and now they’re opening yet another California location – Manhattan Beach!  I’m so not a West sider (the WeHo location is my home spot) but the new location, opening March 16th, is definitely a good thing for you beach dwellers.

Even more fun news (so Quarter Life Crisis):

Drybar West Hollywood Does It Again

Confession: if I could only have one beauty indulgence for the rest of my life, it would be blowouts. I wrote about LA’s Drybar back in April 2010 when the first store opened in Brentwood and crazy enough, my obsession proved to be quite popular. The downside? Brentwood. Anyone who lives in LA knows about how much the traffic totally blows and as a Hollywood resident, I nearly fainted when I found out that Drybar was opening a West Hollwood location!

Finally! The WeHo location is less than a mile from my apartment and get this- there’s a FREE PARKING LOT behind the salon. It’s the little things, ladies. I stopped by the WeHo location before my friend Justin’s surprise 30th birthday party a few weekends ago and got yet another amazing blowout. There’s something about Drybar that just makes me happy. The decor is absolute perfection, they always play some fantastic girly movie (past movies include Clueless, Mean Girls, 10 Things I Hate About You, etc.) and the stylists are super sweet and actually listen to what you what you’re saying which can sometimes be rare in stylists.

Jersey Shore blowouts 101


So you’ve probably all read my take on MTV’s Jersey Shore but now you’re getting Jersey Shore, the beauty edition.  I can’t help but kind of love DJ Pauly D (real name Paul Delvecchio) for his profound quotes and, of course, his sterotypical guido blowout.  Going to college in Long Island, I was privy to many a guido blowout but none of them can even compare to the skill and sweet care that goes into Pauly’s immaculate look.  Wanna know his secret?  Thanks to the Daily News, we can all get a little dose of “Guido 101.”  You’re welcome.

The two must-have products?


The must-listen quotes?

  • “My hair didn’t even move an inch and I was in & out of the water. My hair’s windproof, waterproof, soccerproof, motocycleproof. I’m not sure if my hair’s bulletproof, I’m not willin’ to try that.”
  • “You gotta stay fresh-to-death I call it – fresh outfit, fresh haircut, fresh tan, just stay fresh.”
