Blown Away: DryBar Coming to Fashion Island

Come 2011, you can celebrate resolutions or you can resolve to look good at all times with the opening of DryBar, a no-nonsense stop for blow outs and glam-overs set to open at Fashion Island next year. So whether you’re strapped for time or just looking for a quick do-over for your ‘do, a quick visit to DryBar will have you feeling glam in no time flat.

Coming from the glamorous (and time-strapped) world of L.A. the DryBar concept has already gained a huge following for ladies looking for a touch-up before events and parties. You might get drawn in by the approachable and adorable store, which has everything from light bites to enjoy while you wait and girly movies playing to iPhone charging stations, but what’ll keep you coming back is the straightforward way they’ll service your ‘do.

No cuts or colors at DryBar, instead, stop in here to boost your look with one of their signature services. Choose from the Cosmopolitan, which will leave you with lots of loose curls, the sleek Straight Up, the glam Souther Comfort, which is all about volume and the Mai Tai, which’ll have you looking like a beach goddess. Started by a Toni&Guy alumna and her brother — who worked writing jingles for Jack in the Box — the simple and straightforward approach to services has caught a strong foothold in LA, so naturally, the duo wanted to bring the DryBar experience to Orange County.

And whether you go big or sleek, you’ll be turning heads after a quick stop into this sweet shop.

DryBar will be located at Fashion Island in the Atrium Court, across from Barnes & Noble. For more information, visit For more information on Fashion Island, visit
