To promote the return of Girls and Enlightened, HBO has struck up an unlikely partnership. They've teamed up with Drybar to offer free blowouts next week.
The gratis appointments are between 6 and 7pm on January 11th, 12th and 13th at every Drybar location and must be booked in advance. HBO will pick up the tab for the entire thing, including tip. So if you want to get the Jessa before the season premiere on Sunday the 13th, this is the time to do it. Hurry, though, slots are going really fast. In fact, the promotion seems to have taken down Drybar's booking system.
UPDATE: Drybar founder Ali Webb has just emailed out an apology.
I know a lot of people have been unable to book appointments both online and via the phones.
Unfortunately, despite staffing up our phone receptionists for this promotion, we dramatically underestimated the response here and are terribly sorry for any inconvenience. I have read all the frustrated emails and truly feel awful.
Please know we are doing everything we can to rectify the situation as quickly as possible. And will do a better job of planning next time, I promise.
