Drybar

Ok....so let me start out by saying I NEVER cheat on my hair girl. I have too difficult of hair to take chances, BUT I had a gift card to the Drybar and I was going to a Sunday wedding, when my normal salon is closed, so I don't think this really counts as a cheat.


The Drybar is a salon that only does blowouts... not chemical blowouts, not color or cuts, just normal blowouts with different styles to choose from. They started in LA and recently opened one near me in the OC.

So hear goes my honest review:

PROS
  • Decor. OMG its as beautiful in person as the pictures. Completely my style.
  • Price. $35 flat rate.
  • Nice staff. very accommodating, with water and tea in pretty glasses, and snacks available for a charge.
  • Many different styles to choose from. Everything from straight and sleek to beachy and messy, to southern curls. I chose the Cosmopolitan, loose curls.
CONS
Ok so I have two major cons that bugged me...
  • They have a sign at each station suggesting that you tip $10 if your like the service. I'm sorry but I just thought that was tacky....They are asking more than 20% in a bad economy. To be honest I was planning to tip good anyway, but that sign almost made me not want to......I did.
  • Bear in mind I have crazy, not normal hair, but I felt the attention to detail lacked, probably because with only $35 services they want to get people in and out. I have these annoying fly aways and curls on the side of my face that my hair girl always works hard to get out. This time I had to go home and do a little sprucing.

BEFORE
Just warning you, I have A LOT of hair.....
No really.....I have a lot of hair.

AFTER
These are the fly aways I'm talking about :/

AFTER SPRUCING UP AT HOME


FINAL VERDICT:
If I'm in a bind where I need a last minute blowout and can't get a hold of my hair girl then its' a great option. It's in and out, and they do the hard part, I just tweak a little on my own. If I have the option, I'll just keep going to my normal salon. Keep in mind if you have remotely normal hair, the Drybar might be a great option for you.
