Dry Bar, when I stumbled across the concept, I thought it was something to do with an empty bar that someone had gone to town with the contents of the liquor, fortunately that is not the solution that Carlton Hair has for your bad hair days, their solution is simply a “Dry Bar” in the sense of blow-dries for sleek and straight or bouncy hair guaranteed to turn heads. No cuts, no colour, no unnecessary styling just washes and blow dries. The highly successful concept of a Dry Bar which has been a huge success overseas and is gaining popularity locally is in full swing. The dry bar concept started at Carlton Hair in Vancouver all the way back in 2007 and have gradually gained popularity internationally and have started taking shape on our shores with various establishments (not only Carlton Hair) offering these fast paced blow dries which pack a punch.
Carlton Hair South Africa are the latest to offer the Dry Bar as a solution to the lady on-the-go who needs quicker styling in order to perfect and polish her look for any occasion. The introduction of the Dry Bars within the Carlton Hair group resemble a “salon within a salon”, by gaining foot traffic and bookings from Carlton Hair’s already outstanding exposure and result-driven reputation. The Dry Bars are launching the larger Carlton Hair initially being Hyde Park and Melrose Arch in Gauteng and Canal Walk and Cavendish in Cape Town. Given time, the Dry Bars will be available at various other Carlton Hair Salons.
The boasting factor of the Carlton Hair Dry Bar is that they use It Factor products which is a one-of-a-kind product made to save time on drying and styling all while providing superior conditioning and detangling ingredients. The It Factor products are safe to use on all hair types and free of alcohols, sulphates, sodium chloride and parabens. Essentially, It Factor is the ONLY styling products your hair will ever need, especially when your hair is in the hands of a trained Blow Dry Specialist.
The menu of treatments available at the Dry Bar is limited as though not to complicate the treatment time and they all cost R150. On offer, there is Straight & Sleek; Straight with Body; Beachy Hair; Bouncy Curves and Red Carpet Waves. Loyalty packages are available for buying more than 6 blow dries and you get a certain number free in return.
I am so interested in finally getting to try out a Dry Bar… I need to decide which upcoming event I am going to for my turn to finally get my locks tamed!
