Angelenos may not be known for fashion forward style, but they are at the forefront when it comes to getting fabulous hair, perfect skin and beautiful nails. Here's a guide on where to get that L.A look.

DryBar Sunset Plaza, 8595 Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood

The hair-salon that will blow-dry your hair in one of a multitude of styles in just an hour. DryBar specialise in 'blow-outs', so if you're looking to get a haircut, this is not the place. But if you're off to a party, a premiere or a date, are short on time and want perfect hair, DryBar is the destination that'll make your hair shine, literally. The quirky blow-out menu offers a cocktail of styles, from the Straight-up to the Manhattan. Of course, if you're not enticed by the menu, your stylist will be happy to oblige by creating a style of your choice. The venue is chic and pretty and has a laid-back bar vibe; both the reception staff and stylists are friendly and the cocktail mixologist very attentive. DryBar has expanded to 27 locations in the US.
