How Drybar Made Me the Best Dressed Guest at My Best Friend's Wedding

Getting ready for my best friend (and former college roomie) Julie’s wedding at the Plaza meant pulling out all the stops.  I already snapped up a new BCBGMAXAZRIA color block pleated gown, broke out my precious red soled pumps and unlocked the glammy-glam jewels (diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right?), but I knew Julie was having a lot of guests that I haven’t seen since college, so I had to really dress to impress. 

This seriously high-intensity affair meant I needed an equally high wattage hairstyle with staying power to keep me dazzling the entire night.  Naturally, I turned to my favorite hair helper, Drybar.  In a partnership with 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment, they are offering the Old Fashioned, a tribute from the tresses to one of the most glamorous screen sirens of all time, Marilyn Monroe.  This limited-edition style (available through August) was just the old school style ticket to transport me back in time to wow my college crew.
Check out this super cute video they created in honor of the new ‘do! 

I whirled into Drybar's Flatiron location (4 West 16th Street) looking like a schlepper with my hair ravaged from a sweat session with my trainer.  This did not faze my stylist, Lisa, who instantly helped me decompress by offering me a glass of bubbly (Don’t mind if I do!).  

Extreme Clean
Lisa escorted me to the back to get washed - let me clarify, by washed I mean a relaxing head massage that left me zoned out to the point where I had to wipe some drool off my mouth (– I kid, I kid).  Afterward, she sat me down at her clean, white workspace and began the transformation.  

Start with the Part
Donned in an adorable buttercup-colored apron, Lisa separated my soaked strands into a deep side part to prep for the drama.

Fly-by Dry
Lisa gave me a fast blow out to calm my cowlick, and then texturized my locks with dry shampoo and Moroccan Oil hair spray.

Divide and Conquer
Talk about TLC, Lisa spent over an hour splitting my hairs into small sections for maximum "s" formation.  Then, she spritzed them with hair spray, and wrapped each of the chunks around a 1" curling iron barrel and pinned the curls into place.  Eventually, we needed to call in some backup buttercups, so at one point I had two technicians taming my tresses (in half the time!).

Science of the Swoop
After the curls set, my fairy godmothers brushed out the tight curls into a sleek, sexy "s" shape.
This masterpiece was a labor of love, but I was thrilled with my bombshell blowout:

It makes some people nervous to buy Chanel handbags from China but the truth is this is the best way to get the best deal. Louis Vuitton are plenty of sites with great, coherent English, customer service that ship from China. Rolex Air Kin are reliable and since there is no North American/European distributor the same products are cheaper. You can also be assured that they have direct access to all the best Replica handbags and don’t have to be dependent on another supplier.As many of you know I have actually been to China and hunted through the markets for Hermes handbags.Simply put, the options are limited. You cannot get a great replica of every Omega watches .?

Some Replica handbags are made by high quality manufacturers and some are only made by low quality factories.A site that offers you everything available is not selective about the quality of item that they ship. Incidentally in China the best replicas are always of Louis Vuitton replica handbags and replica Chanel handbags so a site that has a large Louis Vuitton and Hermes handbag collection and little selection of other designers is likely to be the most concerned about quality.I started to get into Rolex Air Kin since they hold value really well, but I’m also very fascinated with the Omega watches mechanical aspect of them. Hundreds of parts working together making a fine tuned machine that can be spot on day after day.
