If you're in Los Angeles, I implore you to check out Drybar. The salon specializes in one thing -- blowouts -- and believe me when I say they are masters of their craft. I truly love the salon's philosophy: "No cuts. No color. Just blowouts."
My friend Jenny and I both had the opportunity to experience blowouts at the Studio City location while on my vacation this past week, and I have one word for the experience from start to finish. WOW. My stylist, the fabulous Tara Bouillet, walked me through the Lookbook -- a collection of the various styles to choose from. Rather than just telling your stylist "I want my hair straight," for example, you pick from the following "poisons":
Straight Up (simple and straight)
Manhattan (sleek and smooth)
Southern Comfort (big hair with volume)
Cosmopolitan (lots of loose curls)
Mai Tai (messy and beachy)
Shirley Temple (pre-teen blowout)
I obviously went for the Manhattan, since I like to get my hair as straight as humanly possible. After an amazing shampoo/conditioner/head massage at the shampoo bowl, Tara led me back to my chair and proceeded to give me the BEST BLOWOUT EVER. Seriously, my hair was so pin straight, with not one strand out of place or one frizzy flyaway, it was a true miracle -- especially since it was pouring outside that day! My blowout lasted for three days, which is really saying something since I even traveled from LA to NYC in that time.

And here's the best part. Every blowout is only $35. Yes, $35, regardless of hair type, texture or length! That's the best blowout deal I've found, especially for such an adorable and upscale salon.
