If I could indulge in a beauty treatment once or maybe three times a week, it would be blowouts. Hands down.
The DreamDry/Dry Bar concept is not cultish, in fact it’s pretty mainstream. Regardless. The way these stylist can make hair look flawless for days in a mere 40 minutes for $40 - blows. my. mind.
I went to the Rachel Zoe curated DreamDry on West 21st Street for an NYE do. I was greeted by a woman name Tudy with coffee and an iPad to scroll through their full selection of styles. I chose the super sleek, retro glam Veronica(inspired by the beautiful Veronica Lake, above). A little doubtful that my hair would come out as perfect as Veronica’s, I was thrilled when Tudy was finished working her magic - my hair and Veronica’s were close to identical.
Here was Tudy’s method:
(1) After blow drying she took small sections of hair and sprayed with Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray. (2) She curled each with a curling iron and then pinned the perfect circular sections of hair back to my head. (3) Once my entire head was pinned and cooled, she took a few sections out at a time, brushed them together, and twisted them into one big curl with her finger. (4) Brushed, tamed and sprayed with Oribe to keep every strand in locked down and curled position.
