My Experience at the DryBar
I don’t know about everyone else, but I hate doing my hair. Like with a passion.
My hair isn’t always unruly, but I’d say a good 90% the Virginia humidity makes me want to have a Britney moment.
So when I need my hair to cooperate I set up an appointment at the DryBar.
The DryBar is something I discovered on The Skinny Confidential. I mean, if Lauren says it’s amazing than I trust her opinion.
So my first try I drove over to Tyson’s Corner at 5pm and the place was packed. They told me I would have to wait a hour to be seen. So I said nope and went home and immediately booked an account with them. The online scheduling was simple to use (they also have an app I now use) and I was booked for the next day.
My actual experience at the DryBar was pretty good. They wash your hair and ask you lots of questions so they stick with your routine. I mean, I’ve never had my hair dresser ask if I condition my roots or not…and that’s a pretty important question.
Their products also smell great and can be bought online and in store. I use their dry shampoo (as mentioned in My Top Five Target Finds) and I’ve managed to only wash my hair twice a week. It’s amazing.
My only recommendation is to make sure the hair dresser really knows what you want. The first time I went my hair was a tad too curly. So the next time I went I made sure they knew exactly what I was talking about and they got it right. Don’t be afraid to talk to them- you’re paying good money for your hair.
Oh, I think I forgot to mention that they also serve champagne to those of age. It’s amazing. They also have water and tea for those who aren’t fans.
So the next time you feel like treating yourself head to the DryBar. Even if you don’t have a big event you can get a great blow dry and not wash your hair for like, a whole 6 days.
