In search of the perfect blow-out for a party on a recent Saturday night, we headed straight to the newly-opened Drybar in Brentwood. “No cuts. No color. Just blowouts.” We knew we’d be in good hands.
Upon entering, we were warmly greeted and offered a glass of champagne. True to its name, the salon is set up like a sophisticated bar: The space is clean and bright, with vases of lemons and bouquets of bright yellow flowers throughout. A large flat-screen TV screen in the back of the salon shows movies (Vicky Christina Barcelona was on when we were in), and tons of glossy magazines are available so you can take advantage of the full salon experience.
There are a number of blowout options to choose from: the Manhattan is sleek and smooth, the Mai Tai is messy and beachy. Our lovely stylist, Sadaf Azimi, told us she had something special in mind, so we sat back and let the master work. We loved what she created: equal parts part chic uptown lady and California surfer girl.
And at the reasonable price of $35, we are certain to be Drybar regulars.
