LA spots: they just blow

they say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. with that in mind, it wasnt long before the surge of salons that just blow{dry}, a la drybar, were popping up on every corner. after at least one visit to many variations around the city, here are some of the top picks:

drybar - various cities: the salon that sparked the trend (in LA that is), remains at the top and based on how fast they are expanding, they are bound to be blowing to a city near you. flawless execution and impeccable branding.

bubble blow - brentwood: $50/month membership which equates to $25/blowdry. inside the spacious location, they also offer 'make-up and go' concept as well as an adorable boutique called jane where nothing is over $100. for a night on the town or a special evening, this can be your one stop shop.

yoshi's haute air
- 'some like it haute' at this blow bar where where the standard prices far exceed the moderately priced blowout options for $35 not to mention the most refreshing cucumber water in town!

have yet to try: style bar - beverly hills: newly opened and ultra chic with a simple concept. 3 services at $33 each all performed in less than an hour. make up, mani/pedi, blowdry.

go ahead, get blown away.
