Mermaid Braid – My First Drybar Experience

I was invited to my first Drybar Experience to receive a Mermaid Braid while visiting Beaches in Turks and Caicos. The invite came during the Social Media on the Sand Event where my family and I spent 5 amazing days in paradise!

I have a confession, I was a total tomboy until I hit around the age of 12 years old. I mean hello that’s when boys became important right? So, in short, let’s just say that I’m a little late to the game when it comes to beauty and fashion. I don’t let that stop me though.

Thanks to places like Drybar I can focus more on my makeup and let them handle my hair. So let’s be clear, I am late to the game of beauty but I’ve picked up some awesome tricks and skills along the way.

With that said I know a lot of you ladies can agree with me when I say, sometimes it’s just nice when someone else does your hair for you. Especially when you are attending a special event or maybe just like me, looking fly for me, myself, and I.

Drybar Invite

While at the Social Media On The Sand Event at Beaches Resorts in Turks and Caicos last October. Drybar invited us, lovely ladies, to one of their private villas to experience the world of Drybar. This being my first ever experience I was more than excited to have someone play with my hair. I chose the Mermaid Braid with extra glitter and sunshine!

My Stylist

I loved working with my stylist, I told her my vision and let her take control. She did an amazing job, especially considering my hair was a mess the entire time. Beach hair is no joke guys. Eventually, about halfway through the trip, I stopped taming my flyaways and crazy baby hairs. It’s part of the whole experience of being on an island right?

Beaches at Turks and Caicos

Overall I loved this experience, I got to sit back and let someone play with my hair. I also got to rock a style I probably would never understand how to do on my own. Drybar is known for their blowouts, which I hope one day to be able to experience! I highly recommend this service ladies, two thumbs up!

What You Need To Know Before You Go

  • They do NOT wash your hair
  • Arrive with dry hair
  • Have a photo ready to help assist the stylist with bringing your look to life
  • Brush Your Hair Before *Saves Time* – (Unless your hair is like mine and always a mess)
  • Ask, ask, ask! Ask away if you have a question and always communicate with your stylist

About Drybar

Named one of the top “100 Brilliant Ideas of 2010” by Entrepreneur Magazine and New York Magazine’s Boom Brands of 2013, Drybar is based on the simple concept of focusing on one thing and being the best at it: Blowouts. The idea was a natural one for curly-haired founder Alli Webb, a longtime professional stylist, who constantly found herself overpaying for blowouts at traditional salons.

Who is Alli Webb?

The Founder Alli Webb is the founder and a lifelong blowdry maven. Before becoming a full-time mom to Grant and Kit, Alli had a career in public relations, working with clients such as Faith Hill, Paul McCartney, and Keith Urban. She’s a professional hairstylist, trained by Toni & Guy, and spent several years working under the late, great John Sahag in NYC.

In 2008, she began a side business called Straight-at-Home, which provided in-home blowouts on a referral basis in LA. When her business and popularity quickly outgrew her one-woman show, she decided to expand and start Drybar.

Her Story From The Exclusive Interview

Believe it or not, Alli didn’t start in the hair business. She actually found her way into that lifestyle by following her passion only after she was in her 20’s. The original business she started provided in-home blowouts, that after looking back she admits were barely breaking even for her.

On a whim, she set out to provide a brick and mortar location that cut out her commute and had the customers coming to her. Alli was questioned a lot and had a lot of pressure pursuing a shop that had nothing to do with cutting hair. The worry was that people wouldn’t get it and that this whole idea would just be a huge flop.

Drybar

Nervously she launched her shop’s online website and went back to work getting the storefront ready for the big opening. To her surprise, she started to receive a slew of reservations. Alli was sure there was a glitch in the system, after some digging she found not only were these reservations real, and that she was going to have one busy opening day.

Although she was nervous about opening a brick and mortar she still pursued her dream, as you can see business and booming and Drybar is bigger and better than ever. They also have their own line products which include style tools, beauty products and so much more.
