As someone with curly hair, I love when my hair is smooth and sleek. It seems more style savvy. Apparently, I am not the only one who thinks this way, and not just because I have curly hair. Women with all hair types are heading out to new “Blow-Dry Bars”.
Blow-dry bars are establishments that just wash and blowout your hair. That’s it. Nothing else. But they are hot, hot, hot. Los Angeles, New York, and Chicago all have blow dry bars blowing up all over the city. Whether it is called Drybar, Blo, or Blowout, it is reminicent of when my great grandmother would go to the hairsalon once a week to get her hair washed and curled.
On average, it is about a 30 minute service that costs $30. Some go for a special event, others make it a weekly occurance along with their mani/pedi next door, or when they need to look good for a presentation at work or a business trip.
So what do you think? Would you go? How often? Do you think something like this is indulgent in this economy?
