When it comes to shoot days, there is a lot involved. A few days prior, I begin to pull wardrobe. Every item is selected, from head to toe, and organized accordingly. And the day of the shoot begins long before I meet up with my photographer, Michele LoBosco. After loading my car, there are two integral steps without which I would never set foot in front of the camera. Part One is Drybar. For those of you living under a rock (or unfortunate enough to be located in a city that Drybar has not yet invaded), Drybar is one of the first and definitely the best of the blowdry bars. Their concept is simple. “No cuts. No color. Just blowouts.” I call them the In-N-Out Burger of blowouts. They do one thing and they do it exceptionally well. No matter where you go or which stylist you see, you’re guaranteed to get a perfect blowout. Every time. And this is coming from the girl with the most “real hair” most stylists have ever seen. The process couldn’t be easier. Make an appointment (either online or with their handy app). Show up. Have your hair washed (awesome head massage at no extra charge). Watch a movie, eat cookies and drink complimentary champagne, etc. as someone makes your hair look better than you ever knew it could. Repeat. I do not exaggerate when I say that Drybar is my version of Disneyland. Honestly. I want to live there. For now, I’ll settle for shoot days. And every other day ending in “y.”
P.P.S. Stay tuned next week for the place that gets my face camera ready.
