Contrary to the vibe from your local CVS aisle, Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about candy hearts and oversized teddy bears. Sure, a grand gesture from your main squeeze is nice, but V-Day is also the perfect opportunity to show yourself a little love. How? Make an appointment for gorgeous locks, courtesy of your neighborhood Drybar.
The no-fuss blow dry salon landed in Georgetown and Bethesda last fall, and D.C. manes haven’t been the same since. For a serious gift-to-self that's 10 times better than a half-eaten box of chocolates, book one of Drybar’s signature $40 blowouts for next Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. Aside from the stellar strands, you’ll also get to choose your own freebie — Money Maker hair spray, Southern Bell mousse, or Detox dry shampoo. Way better than a Whitman's sampler, right?
When: Wednesday, February 13, through Friday, February 15
Where: Drybar, 1825 Wisconsin Avenue NW, 202-609-8644; 4840 Bethesda Avenue, Bethesda; 240-483-4277.
