Straight from the West Coast comes a shining beacon of hope for the hair-challenged: L.A.'s celeb hotspot Drybar, a no-cut, no-color "anti-salon" offering only $40 blowouts, is coming to New York in September. California "blow dry maven" Alli Webb will bring her blow dry bar concept to West 16th Street in September, followed shortly thereafter by a location inside Midtown's Le Parker Meridien Hotel. The market for blow dry bars in the Big Apple isn't totally empty: New York-based Blow opened in Meatpacking in 2005, although it is full service and a bit on the pricier side. Drybar will offer five variations on the signature blowout as well as $28 styles for those aged 10 and under and $80 up-dos.—Lauren Budorick
