I’ve been trying to figure out my hair/makeup situation for the wedding. I know I want someone to come to my apartment (or wherever I end up getting ready) to minimize the stress, but I want a pretty basic style (hair down, loose waves), and it seems crazy to me to pay the $200-$500 most salons/stylists seem to charge in the NYC area (where I live). I came across “dry-on-the-fly” on Drybar’s website (http://www.thedrybar.com/menu/), and am intrigued. for only $85, a stylist will come to you and do a blowout. it almost seems too good to be true. has anyone had any experience with this? I haven’t tried Drybar yet, but I’m curious if the blowouts last (i.e., are they equipped to withstand a whole day of wedding festivities?).
Any feedback would be much appreciated!

I was in a wedding earlier this year and the bride and I got our hair done at dry bar (but not the dry on the fly service). My blowout lasted all day. Over the course of the day the curls loosened into waves but it was definitely still curly. I would actually suggest getting it done a few hours before the ceremony though because wow! i had a lot of volume at first and it needed time to set and fall a bit before I really loved it. But i was impressed with the service for the price and I’d definitely do it again.

I used Drybar the day I tried on dresses (that doesn’t make me sound high maitenance at all!). I think it will hold for the day depending on your hair–mine is pretty thick and doesn’t hold curl great, so after 6 hours it was pretty done/not pretty. However, I got one of the styles that was looser curls/beach waves, and also was pulling over dresses all day, which isn’t exactly great for keeping your hair looking good!

I Love Dry Bar. I go to it for every wedding and special event I have to go to. I’ve never used the dry on the fly service though. But I have no complaints with their blow outs. They always last all day and even through the night!

thanks guys! I think i’m going to give regular drybar a try for our engagement session and see how it holds up. the other things i’m curious about is if you can request the specific stylist to come, and if so, do some sort of trial. hopefully they can answer those questions at the salon!
