Drybar

  • Price band: 2/4

This blowouts-only salon chain started as a mobile business, with founder and hairstylist Alli Webb traveling around Brentwood, California, to style the hair of her friends and clients. Following the success of spots in the Flatiron District and Le Parker Meridien hotel, she’s added a third New York location. The girly haven features blond-wood floors, chandeliers made from bright yellow blow-dryers and 14 salon chairs surrounding a white marble bar, which is equipped with phone charging docks. Your 45-minute appointment begins with a gratis glass of wine, champagne, coffee or tea, followed by an invigorating wash and conditioning. Next, choose a blowout style ($40) named after a classic drink, including the sleek-and-smooth Manhattan, the loose-and-curly Cosmo or the beachy Mai Tai. Add-ons include Hair Shot conditioning treatments ($20) and ten-minute scalp massages ($10). (212-561-5392, thedrybar.com). Mon–Wed 7am–7pm; Thu, Fri 7am–10pm; Sat 8am–10pm; Sun 9am–7pm.

Previously available only by appointment at its Harlem headquarters, this New York City streetwear label opens its first retail shop, selling its signature hats ($20–$38), tees ($20–$34), stickers ($5) and sweatshirts ($50–$68). Designers and longtime friends Micah Belamarich and Julian Goldstein started the company in 2007, and the brand has since garnered an international following while retaining its underground street-culture vibe. The simple and relaxed interior showcases photographs and artwork from the owners and other local artists, alongside racks of made-in-America merch. Playful standouts include strawberry-print flat-brim hats ($38), screen-printed tees ($25) with original artwork by Richard Egielski and raglan crewneck sweatshirts ($68) bearing a vintage-looking logo. Those who gravitate toward more neutral tones will find corduroy-trimmed canvas bomber jackets ($200). (646-649-5673, onlynylives.com). Daily noon–8pm.

Shu Uemura, Wella and Kerastase products are exclusively used in services such as cuts ($98–$148), color ($95–$285), conditioning treatments ($30–$60), blowouts ($50–$100) and updos ($150–$250). There’s also a private room for getting manicures ($22) and pedicures ($40) with O.P.I. and Essie lacquers, as well as a Giella Custom Blend makeup bar, which offers full-face ($75) and lash ($30) applications. Since all of the brand’s cosmetics are custom-blended on the spot, you can have a discontinued lipstick re-created ($28) or bring in a favorite sweater and have a matching nail polish ($25) whipped up before your eyes.
