A bunch of my husband’s buddies (or so it seems) are getting married this fall which means 2 things: 1. lots of fun nights out to attend these weddings and 2. lots of getting all dolled up in our fanciest clothes! I never seem to have trouble finding what clothes to wear since I’ve been relatively the same size since high school and have a pretty good collection of wedding-appropriate-dresses and shoes. It’s really, for me, how to complete the dressed up outfit with an equally dressed up hair style.I’m horrible at styling my own hair, or maybe just ignorant. I watch hair tutorials on other blogs and I think “my hair is too thick for that” or “my hair is too short for that” or “that looks super complicated.” So for dressier events such as a wedding I always end up just straightening my already straight hair and maybe putting in a cute bobby pin and calling it done.
You can only imagine how THRILLED I was to hear about Be Styled blowdry bar opening in Chestnut Hill and Wellesley. For $35 you can pop in and get your hair washed and styled in 40 minutes. And the experience is just…so…relaxing and indulgent. You’re offered a mimosa or cappuccino when you arrive…and then pass by the candy bar to grab a little snack. And after your hair wash, you sit in a chair and watch movies on the big screens (SATC2 was on when I was there) or play with a BeStyled iPad.
I mean – what a great way to spend a Saturday morning AND you come out looking fab.
In theory a blowdry should last for 3 days but after my day that included an outdoor cocktail hour followed by dancing all night…I was desperate for a ponytail when I got up the next morning, ya know…
PS. The wedding was a blast…
