One Cosmo Please!

Monday, March 07, 2011 | Category: Commercial Spaces, Shops and Showrooms

I can’t tell you how much I loathe “styling” my hair every day.  I have that kind of lifeless, straight, fine, easily- tangled hair that’s impossible to give body to.

We had our engagement photos this past weekend and of course, once again, I was stressing about how to make my hair look lively but natural.  My friends suggested going to the new Dry Bar in the shops of Highland Park in Dallas.  I made an appointment right away and not only did they do a great job with my hair (for only $35!), but I also couldn’t help but notice the space’s adorable decor.  I felt a little creepy asking to take photos of their shop after my blow out, so instead, I managed to find some great photos from their website to share with you-

Dry Bar began in Brentwood, California but since their initial opening, they now have four other stores in California (West Hollywood, Newport Beach, Studio City and Pacific Palisades).  Dallas is actually their first store out of state, and opened about a month ago.  How lucky we are to have such an affordable blow dry at our fingertips now!  Honestly, having someone do my hair is priceless to me.  My sister is probably so glad I found the Dry Bar so she doesn’t have to be subjected to being my hair stylist anymore.

The colors in The Dry Bar are lemmony yellows, shiny silvers, bright whites, and cool grays.  The mirrors and windows help the store feel so open and fresh!

It really is set up just like a bar (but without the obnoxious intoxicated people and smoke filled air).

You take a seat in a white leather chair at the “bar” which includes a gorgeous white carrarra marble countertop.  You then order your hairstyle of choice, and proceed to sit back and relax with a glass of champagne and their featured movie.  I got to watch Dirty Dancing, which I hadn’t seen in about a million years, and I had forgotten how much I love that movie. Whenever I go to a salon, it’s about the only time that my mind is totally cleared and I can truly relax.  I could get used to this…

How cute is their yellow hair dryer chandelier and their framed menu?

Such a cool concept!  I would definitely recommend it for your next special event or if you are like me and can’t get your hair to do anything but lay flat. Can’t wait to go back!

LOVE the hair dryer chandelier! Such a cute place… I like it when interiors have a little sense of humor 🙂

How did the photos turn out????
Sure that your “do” was a hit.

LOVED the photos! Haven’t seen them all- only a few, but this photographer did such a great job- and did them somewhat “artsy” which I loved. I’ll post them on Facebook once I get all the digital files. The “do” was a hit until my hair got all straggly at the end of the day- ha ha. By the way, your Odegard rep came over to my office the other day- she said she has a presentation coming up with you all here soon- I told her to tell you hello! 🙂 She said you were so fun and so nice 🙂

I just went last night to treat myself after a tough week and LOVED it. It’s great! I definitely recommend it.

Hi Kate- I know, wasn’t it great! It’s even more relaxing than getting a hair dye/cut!
