Look what blew into Marina del Rey! hello drybar, goodbye BHD’s

Posted June 3, 2013 by Stephanie Ginzburg

Hello drybar, good-bye Bad Hair Days!

FantaSea brides, corporate honchos and prom queens rejoice! Drybar, the ultra-hip, blowout only salon has officially opened in Marina del Rey at the Waterside on Admiralty Way. Drybar is a brand new “blow dry bar” concept created around a very simple idea: No cuts. No color. Just blowouts for only $35. You see, they believe that almost everyone (even us FantaSea pros) prefers having someone else blow out their hair. We love the champagne tastes…. from everyday to the special day, the folks over at drybar have one purpose, they make you feel like a million bucks for a very reasonable $35!

Private parties are available – this is a great way to treat all those bridesmaids or 20 fashion-obsessed friends for a fantastic “Girls Night Out”, host an event no one will expect, and everyone will talk about. They’ll provide the drinks and blowouts, and leave it to their party planner to help you with rest. One thing’s for sure, your next birthday party, sweet sixteen, bridal shower or girl’s night out will be the ‘best looking’ and most unique affair you’ve ever hosted.

Monthly memberships and Gift Certificates as well as Bartabs are available for those looking for more than a one time option.
