Drybar Remembers Marilyn Monroe's Passing with Special Hairstyle
August 07, 2012 | by —Cait Rohan | Style & Beauty
In an homage to the 50th anniversary of Marilyn Monroe’s passing on August 5, 1962, Drybar and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment are offering a limited-time Old Fashioned hairstyle through the month of August. The retro-inspired blowout-only salon features super-feminine finishes, such as oversized antique mirrors, yellow blow-dryer chandeliers, and black-and-whites of screen sirens (Monroe included), making it the perfect spot to pay tribute to the late legend.
Monroe’s signature swirls are replicated on locks of every length—from those sporting similarly short ‘dos to lengthier tresses, each customer will leave the salon with large, luxurious curls. Monroe movies from 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment’s FOREVER MARILYN: THE BLU-RAY COLLECTION (Some Like It Hot, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and Seven Year Itch to name a few) will be in heavy rotation on Drybar’s looping chick flick playlist, too. The Old Fashioned is available at all Drybar locations, including New York Midtown (Le Parker Meridien Hotel, 119 W. 56th St., 212-561-5392) and New York Flatiron (4 W. 16th St., 212-561-5392). With three more New York locations in the works (Murray Hill, Tribeca, Upper East Side), we’re excited to see what the innovative salon offers up next.
