It's so simple, we're surprised it hasn't been done before. A new blowout-only salon, Drybar, is set to open next month in a currently-unknown location. Customers will pay $35 for a blowout, choose among a variety of types, then sit back and sip cocktails and watch Sex and the City while the stylists work their magic.
