Last weekend was a momentous occasion: I had my hair blown out for the very first time!
Cutler Salon in Soho recently opened up the Pillow Proof Blow Dry Bar, and I couldn’t resist stopping by and giving it a go!
Cutler Salon is Redken’s flagship NYC location, so obviously every beauty station was stocked with supplies.
My appointment was with Diana, and before shampooing we sat down and discussed what result I wanted. Being a blow out novice, I wasn’t really sure, so she suggested loose waves that would make me look like a Victoria’s Secret model. Well, ok!
Diana got to work drying my hair, and I got to work… taking more selfies than I ever have in my entire life!
I just tried not to look awkward.
Diana liberally applied Redken products, and they made my hair smell amazing! Here’s what went into my styling (it takes a village, right?!):
Before I knew it, it was time for the finishing touches.
Ta-da! The final product:
My hair looked and felt beautiful! It had a really great bounce to it, and lots of body.
The only downside? For some reason I still didn’t look like a Victoria’s Secret model! What went wrong, Diana?!
Cutler Salon’s Pillow Proof Blow Dry bar has expanded hours on weekday mornings, so you can come in and get your hair done before work. Morning express services from 7-10am cost $45-55, and normal services (minus the “express” and the early wake up) range from $65-85.
To make an appointment call 212.308.3838.
I mean, what are you going to do instead? Actually hold a blowdryer?! You’re better than that!
