Well, I think I might be the last one on planet earth to get my hair done at a blowout bar… please tell me I’m not alone?? Regardless, today I got my very first blowout at the Dry Bar in Milwaukee. Initial thoughts… it was amazing!!!
When Joy contacted me about having me over to do my hair and share about it, I knew it would be a great opportunity to try something new, admire the tricks of the trade, and inspire other gals to treat themselves to a blowout of their very own! Dry Bar is Milwaukee’s very first salon dedicated to the quick and beautiful blowouts! Drybar is the nation’s premier blow dry bar specializing in just blowouts, no cuts, no color!
First of all, for those that don’t know what a blowout is, let me fill you in. You basically walk in, sit down, and get pampered with a fresh wash, dry, and style! Easily put, a blowout at Dry Bar will make you and your hair look and feel amazing!
Milwaukee’s Dry Bar pamper a ton of women every day for special events such as prom, anniversary date night, photo sessions, and even wedding day! (my sister did!!) Some women come in just to treat themselves once a week over their lunch break!
After talking with my stylist, Zuleima, about my hair and what I was looking for in a blowout, we decided on a “Dirty Martini.” The Dirty Martini is a tousled and textured blowout, with a ton movement and some VERY loose waves throughout. I told her I wanted my hair wild and semi-unkempt!
After choosing my “look”, Zuleima took me over to the shampoo area and the magic began! I loved the smell of the shampoo and conditioner she put in. She used the Purple Brightening Shampoo to make my blonde pop! The Blonde Ale Contains deep purple pigments that neutralize brassiness in blonde, gray, white, and highlighted hair.
Side Note: I hurt my foot and I am in a boot cast (so chic) and I was able to elevate my foot while she washed my hair and it was SO relaxing.
After the wash, we walked (I hobbled) back to my chair and she got to work!
I loved being able to watch tv and then occasionally look in the mirror to see what she was doing. One of my all-time favorite movies was on, How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days, so obviously that put me in a really great mood. I was laughing hysterically under my mask.
The whole process took a little under an hour and holy cow- my hair is so voluminous and polished! My hair has never looked and smelled this good! I also learned how to sleep on my hairdo at night (loose bun with a special clip placed behind) so that I can rock this hairstyle for another day!
Zuleima was amazing! Thank you!
I love love love love my hair. Psst: Do you love my new CELINE sunglasses??

Thanks again to the ladies over at Dry Bar Milwaukee. for having me over for a fun, relaxing visit… it was such a pleasure meeting you gals and I had a blast!
A blowout can even make a boot cast look good!!
UPDATE: I’ve now been to DryBar 3 times!
I can’t begin to explain how much I’ve been enjoying these moments of self-care! I used to have insane anxiety going to the salon because I always felt like I didn’t quite belong there. As a 100% tomboy, I’ve never been able to pull off more than a messy braid or pony-tail! This has really pushed me out of my comfort zone, and I am loving it. It’s given me the confidence to be myself and not be afraid to try something new!
As my #1 Celeb crush Kurt said, “come as you are.”
