I am super excited about today’s post! Have you guys ever heard of Dry Bar? Well, I hadn’t until about a year and a half ago when I saw they were opening one in Del Mar, CA. I have always had an aptitude for make-up and fashion, but when it came to hair, forget it – hello top knots and braids! Dry Bar is a little hair haven where they do amazing, quick blow outs and styles for a flat rate of $35.00, regardless of hair length, texture, or complexity of your style!
Aside from the adorable decor, complimentary beverages (alcoholic or otherwise), and impressive chick-flick collection shown on a loop – Dry Bar provides incredible hair service at an affordable price. Before them, nothing quite like it existed – you had your Super Cuts and Fantastic Sam’s at a reasonable price but with inconsistent quality, or you had your stylist or 5 star salon charging an arm and a leg for a decent blow out. As a curly-haired gal, I yearned for the glossy, bouncy locks my friends seemed to achieve somewhat effortlessly; unless I went for a hair cut, I could never get my hair to look polished and sophisticated. That is, until I went to Dry Bar.
Here’s another really exciting thing when it comes to Dry Bar, I am now a part of their team- I work there! A die-hard customer since August of 2011 (seriously, my friends kept asking if I got a cut of the profits because I would plug it so hard), it was the first place I thought of when I decided to get a part time job. I applied to a brand new location (somewhat) near our home in LA in December, and by their grand opening just before Christmas, I was officially one of their newest “bartenders” (front desk/ hostess of the party/ whatever you need done around the shop, except do hair ). It is such a fun place to work and be, and I am so thrilled to share it with you today.

As if I need to tell you yet another amazing thing when it comes to Dry Bar, but there is a Groupon- yes a Groupon – for the newest southern California Dry Bar location, Pasadena, where yours truly works! I have no idea how long it will last, but if you have never been and are curious or you are a regular and know what a steal this deal is, treat yourself and come on in! We’d love to see you.
I’d love to hear your thoughts – have you been? Are you intrigued? I know you’ll love it! Locations are growing exponentially – find one in your hood.
P.S. All the beautiful pictures above (except for the snapshot of my hair) are from the site’s picture gallery.
