Ladies (and gents with long hair): get excited. Drybar is coming to DC and bringing with it not one, but two fabulous locations, making me frankly more excited than I can handle. No, Drybar is not the newest watering hole to hit H Street, but rather the most amazing idea ever.
From time to time (and sometimes, more often than not), we women just want someone to style our hair for us. You know, just wake up like we’re Kim Kardashian and have someone blow-dry and style our hair in a way that’s so effortlessly chic that it comes out blatantly fabulous. It’s a simple request, and yet every morning I wake up and I have to do my own hair. It’s nonsense, really.
The problem is that until now, getting your hair styled at a posh salon was costly and completely unnecessary. No one goes to a salon when they need their hair blown out. They go for cuts, colors, and the occasional celebratory up-do. No one went, anyway, until longtime stylist Alli Webb started Drybar, a regular stop for celebs like Cindy Crawford, Emma Roberts, Zooey Deschanel, Maria Shriver, and Nicky Hilton, among a gazillion others in cities like LA, New York, Atlanta, and San Francisco. The concept is simple: No cuts. No Color. Just Blowouts. Fabulous and perfect blowouts that will let you hit the town like you woke up with a celebrity entourage.
Opening on October 19th in Georgetown and Bethesda, Drybar will provide flawless blowouts at a flat price of $40, regardless of hair length or thickness (wash included!). Drybar’s style list reads like a fabulous cocktail menu: the Cosmopolitan (lots of loose curls), the Straight Up (simple and straight), Southern Comfort (big hair with volume), Mai Tai (messy and beachy), Manhattan (sleek and smooth) and for the little ladies, the Shirley Temple at $28. It’s genius and I can’t freaking wait to try it out!
