My drybar Experience

I am not one for salons. I cut my own hair, do my own nails, etc., etc. Blowdry only salons aren't a new thing, especially for NYC. I have always been curious but a bit hesitant. Will it really be worth the money? Will it be awkward? How long will it take? Overall, will the experience be worth it? With an upcoming occasion as an excuse, I decided to give it a try.

I have used a couple of drybar products before and love the cute bar theme. I booked an appointment online, but it wasn't too busy when I went. The staff were all super friendly and made it easy for a first timer like me to choose a style. I went with the Cosmo Tai- a mix between loose curls and beachy waves. My stylist kept them tighter so that it would last a little bit into the next day.

I have a ton of hair, so it was quite the process. From shampooing to blowdrying to curling, it took about 45 minutes. I think 30 minutes is their allotted time. Music was playing, magazines and drinks provided, and even Eat, Pray, Love was on in the background. It helped so that you wouldn't feel forced to converse if you didn't want to.

All the products smelled amazing, so I definitely bought a few to use at home. I love the results. My hair is so shiny and bouncy! I might just get addicted, which wouldn't be so bad as they have a monthly membership. As for the longevity, by the next day the curls are much looser (still there though), but it is definitely as smooth and shiny. I will probably just add a couple of curls in the front to revamp the style. For a special occasion or weekend away, I think it definitely worth it and a fun way to amp up anticipation for the event. It would be fun to have some friends come too.

Not going to lie, I ended up spending quite a bit. I did get several products though too (post on those soon!) And gave a bigger tip since my hair is a lot to work with. It was my big first time of getting my hair 'did' though, so I am justifying it! I think I'll have to go back for my birthday weekend in September.
