I've wanted to try out The Drybar ever since it opened just down the street from me in Georgetown, but could never come up with an occasion that I thought was "fancy" enough for the splurge. Jennie and I were given the opportunity to try out each of our respective locations though, and I have to say, I'm hooked, fancy occasion or not. My stylist Megan (who has worked there since they opened!) was wonderful, from the add-on Floater - a 10-minute head massage that I clearly enjoyed - to the actual blowout, she was informative and had some great stories of past events they've hosted at that location.
I chose The Cosmopolitan for my style, because I wanted something different from the sleek and straight hair I sport on most days. Before I left, Megan gave me some tips to make my blowout last, the best being tie it up loosely to sleep. I followed them, and with the help of a little dry shampoo I made this baby work for 2 additional days! Even through a half mile training run - now that's staying power. For about the price of a mani/pedi, an afternoon at The Drybar may replace the nail salon as my monthly treat to myself.
What do you think - can a blowout be the new mani/pedi?
Check back next week to see Jennie's post on her local Drybar, and thank you again for the opportunity to test out this new neighborhood favorite!
