Buttercup and Blow-Dryers!



If you’re planning your vacay and happen to make a Hyatt Centric hotel your home away from home, you can rest assured they’ve kept your coif care in mind while on the road. So forget about having your blow-dryer take up precious luggage space or dealing with in-room dryers that won’t work. The lifestyle hotel has teamed up with Drybar, the premiere blow dry brand, by providing every Hyatt Centric guestroom nationwide with professional Drybar “Buttercup” Blow-Dryers. The bright yellow blow-dryers are not only powerful and gentle on tresses but also super-lightweight, making your mane drying sessions a breeze!

Sophisticate’s Black Hair was invited to get a first look at the all-new, in-room amenities (including the Drybar Buttercup Blow-Dryer) now available to hotel guests at a special event held at Hyatt Centric Chicago. There we met up with Alli Webb, Drybar founder, who shared these style-smart travel tips:

* “I always tell people to make sure they have a silk pillowcase with them when they travel because it helps preserve your style.”

* “Dry shampoo is a girl’s best friend when traveling. I think the biggest problem, when people travel and not wash their hair for a few days, is it starts to get oily and dry on the ends. Dry shampoo helps to get rid of those oils.”

* “Dampening the front of your hair, and re-blow drying the front, also helps freshen up your whole look.”
