I got my first REAL blow out on Christmas Eve, and fell in love! I say “real blowout” because a couple weeks ago I got a blowout a salon and it was not a good experience. Long story short they just rough dried my hair and then curled it. Needless to say everything they did I could have done myself. Keep reading for my full Drybar Review.
Drybar was a magically dangerous experience. I think I may need a blowout twice a month for the rest of my life. When I arrived, I was greeted by a friendly face and checked in for my appointment. I booked my appointment online with no trouble and checked in with a breeze. After checking in, I was handed a complimentary mimosa. (No complaints there!) From there my consultant walked me through the different Drybar styles. I did a little research prior to my appointment, so I had something in mind but I wanted to get my stylist’s thoughts based on my hair type and length.
We decided on the Mai-Tai, which is a beach wavy look. I went for this look because I know how to achieve the big perfect curl look on my own and this was something completely different for me.
After deciding the look, she washed my hair. After my hair was washed and conditioned, my stylists asked if I wanted a cold rinse. She explained that the cold rinse locks in all of the product and moisture without weighing your hair down, plus a cold rinse in the sink is way easier than a cold rinse in the shower.
After the wash, she rough dried my hair and then round brushed it. I LOVE getting my hair round brushed because it’s something that I can never do. No matter how hard I try, I just can’t get that technique down. Following the round brush, she styled my hair with the “3-day bender” this was hybrid of a curling wand and a traditional curling iron. She topped the look off with some hairspray and texturizing spray.
Along with the amazing customer service and well trained professionals working at Drybar, I was most impressed with their branding. Everything has a bar-like theme, but think of a classy girly bar. All of the hairstyles are named after cocktails like a Cosmo, Mai-Thai, Manhattan, etc. All of the product used are named after liquor like the texturizing spray named Triple-Sec.
The actual salon has a marble “bar” running through where the tools are stored. Behind the bar there are tv’s with classic chick flicks playing as well as mirrors.
The blowouts aren’t cheap at about $45 each, however they are well worth it! Since they only do blowouts they know how to do them well! I wouldn’t make this an everyday thing, but for Christmas Eve like I did or other special occasions, but I will 100% being going back.
