The Drybar ExperienceRachel Matos
A little over a year ago, I was in NYC for the BlogHer 12 conference. It was August, it was hot, and the humidity was way up there. Blow drying my hair on the East Coast is always a feat. By the time I finish my hair, half of it is attacked by humidity. I just circle around and around, adding moisturizer until it’s somewhat straight, which isn’t conducive when you’re at a conference with back to back to panels you want to attend. My friends were all in the know about the Drybar craze and had appointments already scheduled at one of the locations a few blocks away from the hotel. A place solely dedicated to the art of blow drying? I decided to join them to see what this place was all about.
I’ll put it this way — If the Dominican salons I grew up with are like home to me, I would say Drybar is an evening night out with the girls. I was served a mimosa underneath beautifully lit chandeliers circled by vibrant yellow walls. Oh, and they did a really good job with my hair.
My hair looked pretty fabulous and shiny. It’s definitely a great place to go to if you have an event or if you just want to relax and let someone do all the work. I went last Friday just because I needed a “pick me up” after a long day. I was set for the weekend, as the style usually lasts a few days ( I don’t wash my hair every day).
These are a few pics of my “Drybar” hair. If you don’t have a location near you, they sell products for you to create the Drybar experience at home!
