So many of you have commented on my hair from our announcement photos. Please know that I NEVER look like that! With the combination of a fabulous photographer and an awesome hair stylist I actually look presentable! It’s like they had magic wands or something ;-)
Back in September I won a gift card to Dry Bar from Greetings from Texas (thank you Megan!!!). I was so excited but knew I wanted to wait for a perfect opportunity….thankfully I only had to wait 6 days! If you know me that felt like eternity. (FYI- don’t send me a present and expect me to wait until my birthday or Christmas; it’s not happening).
The Dry Bar is a salon that only does blow outs; no colors or cuts or perms! They wash your hair (which feels ah-maz-ing) and then blow it out into a style of your choice. What I thought was so clever was that each style is named after an adult beverage (get it, baaaaaarrrrrrr?!?!! See told ya, super clever). For example, beachy waves are called the Mai Tai, and big volumous hair is called Southern Comfort. I got a cross between these two. Each blow out is $35 and takes about 45 minutes from beginning to end.
So when you arrive you’re greeted with a drink and a cookie and then a stylist takes you to his/her chair to discuss what you’re wanting that day. The chairs are set up to look like an actual bar. Behind the bar (where normally would be a bar tender and alcohol) are TV’s playing, get this, chick flicks……ALL.DAY.LONG! (insert girlie squeal here). During my blow out I watched the end of Bride Wars and the beginning of Clueless.
I had a blast and will definitely look forward to doing this again in the future. It was a perfect way to prep my hair for the photo shoot; very fun and relaxing. There are several locations and I recommend looking Dry Bar up to see if one is near you, especially with all of the fun Christmas parties on the horizon!!!! Thank you Megan for this gift!
