Dry Bar

A few weeks ago, I was visiting Dallas, TX and had to visit Dry Bar.  If you aren't familiar with the concept, it's basically a hair salon where they feature blow outs and styling only, no cuts or color.  The salon had a gorgeous setup with a chic nod to an actual bartop.  They also have a cute menu with styles named after cocktails - love it!  I was so inspired to sketch the two styles I wanted: Straight Up and Mai Tai.  I ended up going with the Mai Tai, which was loose waves.
Have you ever been to a blow dry bar?  What did you order?
 Straight Up

The Mai Tai


  1. Interesting, I had never heard of a dry bar before- I`m not sure if we have them here, but it's a cool idea!
