The blow-out bar trend continues its upward climb with a new blowout-only salon, and this one has a celebrity twist. Gal pals Gwyneth Paltrow and her fitness guru Tracy Anderson have paired up for an April 4th opening of their own single service salon inside Anderson’s famed Method Studio in Los Angeles. Also on the team is Paltrow’s longtime stylist David Babaii.
The David Babaii Blow Dry Bar is set to start simply by offering the services only to Studio members, with looks including the ideal work-out ‘dos, long-lasting blowouts, and red-carpet ready styles, but we won’t be surprised if they follow in the fame-hungry footsteps of Rachel Zoe’s New York Dreamdry salon and open it up to the public.
It seems a smooth, bouncy blowout is the look du jour, so get it while it’s hot!
While they’re not exactly packaging up the skills and dexterity necessary for that in-salon blow-out, smooth hair mecca Drybar is, in fact, prepping a full line of their signature buttercup-hued styling tools for you to try at home.
After opening its first brick and mortar in Los Angeles some years back, Drybar has grown to 25 salons strong across the U.S. — and with its new brand of styling tools and products, will have you that much closer to mimicking the smooth results of an actual appointment in your very own bathroom. Blow-out converts know that the blow-out brand themes its “menu” of optional styles (The Manhattan, The Mai-Tai, Southern Comfort) with a cheeky little hint to your fave after-work cocktail, and their at-home product line is set to be much the same with formulas named after boozy concoctions like Cosmo and Mai Tai.
Pre-orders are being taken now for the full lineup of tools, but come March you can snap it up in person at Drybar salons and at Sephora.
