The Dry Bar At Daryl Christopher Salon and Spa!

BOSTON AND AROUND, NEWS | | December 7, 2012 at 8:47 pm

I had been to a dry bar before but that was in LA. Honestly I thought dry bars were built the LA crowd who had swanky parties to constantly attend. Me, if I had my roots colored, it was a good day. Still I was curious to be invited to check out Daryl Christopher  in Waltham for their open house. Everyone was invited to sip champagne, munch yummies and get their hair done, yes everyone, not just media. I was asked if I wanted to bring a friend and of course I said yes. I mean a spa date involves friends, yes? Besides I love my blogging buddies but I love to be able to share invitations with my non-blogging friends too.

I was feeling under the weather and almost canceled and I had a big event on the weekend (not to mention my kitchen was being torn apart thanks to remodeling) but who says no to a spa event? It was a fab date and here is what I loved:

  • The extra long head massage that went with them washing your hair. I really could fall asleep there, but these days I could sleep anywhere.
  • The use of more natural products. Stylist Angela Guido mentioned the heavy smell of sprays that fill the air of regular salons she wanted to avoid and I really did love that there was none of that. I am extremely fussy about skincare and haircare, and I stick to natural products so this was a reason I definitely wanted to post about this.
  • They have their own product line which are earth-friendly.
  • The stylists listen to what you want and recommend what works on the type of hair you have.
They even did makeup and honestly I am not a fan of someone else putting makeup on me. Thanks to my darker skin I feel I look like a clown when others put it on me and also I normally go without makeup on any given day. I was surprised to actually love how natural the makeup was and pretty similar to the organic makeup I normally use. I love that they gave the guests visiting a card to come back and try the dry bar on the house. I know my friend was super excited about it and I think I may need a fancy schmancy event to go to afterwards!

    Wonderful ! I will stay there for a day on August 18th before I take the Eurostar back to Brussels in the Evening. I will spent a week with my frdines at the English coast in Eastbourne (near Brighton) wish me good weather ! It’s such a beautiful place.I love London so much. My son lived there for 10 years and you can imagine that I went there very often. I think I know this town better then Brussels !

    Hi there, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam feedback? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me crazy so any help is very much appreciated.

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Throughout the grand pattern of things you receive a B- for effort and hard work. Where exactly you actually misplaced me personally was first on all the details. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more correct in this article. Having said that, permit me say to you exactly what did give good results. The text is pretty convincing and that is most likely why I am taking an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can easily see a leaps in reason you make, I am not really sure of exactly how you appear to connect your ideas that help to make the final result. For right now I will yield to your issue however wish in the future you actually connect your dots better.

    Along with every little thing which appears to be developing inside this particular subject matter, many of your perspectives happen to be quite exciting. Having said that, I appologize, but I can not subscribe to your entire theory, all be it refreshing none the less. It looks to us that your commentary are not completely justified and in reality you are yourself not even wholly certain of your point. In any event I did appreciate looking at it.

    Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Ie. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Cheers
