Gwyneth Paltrow and her trainer Tracy Anderson
Actress-turned-singer-turned-lifestyle blogger (we love goop!) Gwyneth Paltrow is adding yet another enterprise to her successful and varied empire: hair. Next month, Paltrow is set to open a new blow dry bar in Los Angeles, a joint venture between her, her longtime personal trainer Tracy Anderson, and celebrity stylist David Babaii. The salon will be named the David Babaii Blow Dry Bar and will be located near Anderson’s new fitness studio in Brentwood, which is set to open April 4th.
Paltrow’s announcement comes shortly after the success of fellow celeb Rachel Zoe’s popular DreamDry in New York, which booked 1,000 (!) appointments in the first week.
Do any of you get blowouts? Would you visit her salon?

Sophia Loren-inspired volume and Farrah Fawcett-like waves at NY’s DreamDry.
I’ve been having a bad hair day. For about a week. My morning gym sessions, which always seem to end with a very frantic me covering my damp, no-time-for-a-blow-dry hair with a wool hat, are partially to blame. So is the fact that I’m growing my hair out—it’s the longest it’s been in years!—and it’s going through one of its awkward phases (there have been many).
It also doesn’t help that I work in an office full of glamorous women with runway-worthy hair. Like the SRSLY girls, I am seriously obsessed with Birchbox co-founder Katia’s hair.
This morning, I decided it was time to seek expert help. I booked myself an appointment at DreamDry, the new blowout bar by celeb stylist Rachel Zoe. After a frenzied morning, the cool white space was a calming retreat with well-spaced stations, Oribe hair products, and an iPad menu of screen siren coifs. I could go for chic and sophisticated with a topknot or chignon à la Audrey Hepburn, old Hollywood glamour with Veronica Lake’s retro waves, or bedhead temptress with Brigitte Bardot-inspired tresses.
