Drybar Event With Boston Bloggers

Last week I had the opportunity to try out Drybar in Chestnut Hill through a Boston Bloggers event. My blow dry was complimentary but all opinions, as always, are my own.

As soon as I walked in the door I was warmly greeted by one of the "Bartenders." She asked me what I would like to drink and of course I chose champagne. She also took my coat to hang. Within seconds my stylist was introducing herself to me and walking me to a chair.  Talk about fast service!

I was actually disappointed that they were so fast because there was some yummy food out and I really wanted to eat it!  Seasons 52 which also recently opened in the same plaza, provided the food.  Flat bread pizzas and shot glass sized desserts. . . Yum!  Thankfully there was still plenty for me to sample when I hair was complete!  I really want to go to Seasons 52 for dinner very soon.

I just love the atmosphere and decor in this place.  It is trendy and upscale yet warm and inviting all at the same time.  I love the grey and yellow color combo too!

Isn't this hairdryer chandelier adorable?  I love it!

After I enjoyed a wonderful hair wash and massage I had my choice of styles. . . the Straight Up, the Manhattan, the Cosmo, the Mai Tai, the Cosmo-Tai, the Southern Comfort, the Hot Toddy and the Up-Tini. . . I choice the Cosmo which is "lots of loose curls." You can go here to see the descriptions of all the other styles.

I loved my final look. I think it was really pretty.  I only wish I wasn't going home to go to bed!  Next time the event needs to be a pre-work event! Ha!

After my hair was done I had a chance to browse, eat and mingle with some of the other bloggers.  I really to buy one of everything.  I hear rave reviews of the "Detox" Dry Shampoo and they even have a brunette version so you don't have to worry about the white powdery look.  It wasn't in the budget this time but next time for sure!  Oh and have you noticed all the cute names for the styles and products?  I just love the whole "bar" these.  So creative and fun.

I had a chance to chat with several of the ladies there but was terrible about taking photos (I was using my crappy old iPhone since my is in the snowbank)!  Thankfully Jill shared this one with me.

Pretzel Crisps were there too! I love these things. If you haven't tried them yet you must. They are so good and I'm not a fan of "regular" pretzels!  They are in the deli section of the grocery store.  I got to take a bag home and I can't wait to eat them.

This was a great event! I had such a fun time. If only I had someone to do my hair everyday. . . I guess then it wouldn't feel like such a treat though, right?!

Drybar is $40 no matter your hair length.  That includes a wash, blow dry and style.  Well worth the money ladies!  I can't wait to go back!

P.S.  This was my 2nd professional blow dry experience.  My 1st was at Be Styled also for a Boston Blogger event.  If I was forced to choose I like the way my hair looked better at Drybar!

P.P.S. I forgot to mention that the entire staff was super friendly and very attentive.  They were always cleaning up the counter (used hair brush, empty glass, etc.) 

Have you been to a Blow Dry Bar?


  1. I've never been to a dry bar, but I have a friend who goes weekly because her hair is unmanageable otherwise. I'm a bit jealous! Your hair looks so good!!!

  2. So cuuute! So good to see you, your hair looked beyond fab!

  3. Your hair looks great, but I LOOOVE that sheep sweater! Freaking awesome!

  4. Your hair came out good at least! haha :) great seeing you there!

  5. I haven't been to a dry bar but it looks fun! I like how they styled your hair. All the food looks delish!

  6. I've never been to one, but I've been dying to go. Your hair looks amazing and makes me want to try it even more. I found one in Portland that I can hopefully try out when I'm home.

  7. How did your hair hold up after? Curious to see the staying power of loose curls!
