Other Prizes: Drybar
Drybar arrives in Cherry Creek! With cranes flying in every direction and down drafts, your hair might need a redo during Colorado Boom Time. Dry Bar’s first Colorado location opened in late November 2015. My peanut and I had to be the first in on opening day. Not for me, but for the Shirley Temple. Drybar provides professional blowouts at a flat price of just $40, regardless of hair length or thickness (wash included!). The list of styles reads like a cocktail menu: the Cosmo (lots of loose curls), the Straight Up (straight with a little body), the Southern Comfort (big hair, lots of volume), the Mai Tai (messy and beachy), the Manhattan (sleek and smooth) the Dirty Martini (tousled and textured) and for the little ladies, the Shirley Temple at $28. Named one of the top “100 Brilliant Ideas of 2010” by Entrepreneur magazine and New York Magazine’s Boom Brands of 2013, Drybar is based on the simple concept of focusing on one thing and being the best at it.
PRIZE / VALUE: Mother and daughter giveaway, total value is $68: $40 for the mom blow out and $28 for the Shirley Temple.
