Drybar Blogger Party


I will begin this post by stating that Charleston needs a Drybar. Right on King Street.
It would flourish (do you hear me, Alli??). 

If you're unfamiliar with Drybar, it's pretty much a girly salon that only does blowouts. No cuts. No color. Just $35 blowouts. Just think of the pretty hair possibilities for your girl's nights, various parties, dates... As simple as hitting up Drybar before hand.

I had been dying to try it out as I had heard a lot about them (there are currently only 14 locations but they are practically doubling that # by the end of 2012). So I contacted Drybar about putting together a little party, blogger style of course, while we were in NYC for Blogfest. Drybar took it to an awesome level and hosted us (of course this meant only a limited amount of people could join in on the fun which kinda sucked - picking and choosing - not my thing - it caused me anxiety for real). Regardless, Drybar was all sorts of amazing- head massages, iphone docking stations, champagne... Good stuff. And the founder, Alli Webb, even showed up and joined in on the fun! That's one example of a woman with a good idea and executing it to perfection.

I really wish we all would have taken a "Before" picture! But here's the "After"!

It really was a fun time and everyone's hair was gorgeous. Upon our departure we were sent off with Drybar umbrellas and the adorable Joss & Main girls (did I mention they showed up too? Such a great shopping site!) gave us gift bags that had iPhone/iPad charging batteries. Brilliant. 

So to sum it up, awesome place. If you have a Drybar in your city, I'm jealous of you. If you travel somewhere that has one, make an appointment!

What a fun party. I have been so wanting to pop in on a Drybar. And how fun to see Erika there a well. Met her in SF and can't say enough great things about her.

You have such good ideas!! Don't you love the names of their blowouts in the menu too?

seven of us are going to san francisco in july and i'm beggggggging them to add drybar to the itinerary. some of the girls have the most fickle curls and the easiest short hair, but that's beside the point, isn't it? isn't it the greatest little luxury??

it sounds like so much fun and you all look 100% glam bam!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...
