Summer may be winding down, but the season at Dream is only getting hotter. Last Friday, Dream Downtown had a special visit from one of our favorite neighbors in Greenwich Village. The team from Diptyque on Bleecker Street brought in their best braid experts for a poolside afternoon of hair magic and samples of their heavenly new scents.
With over 100 people pouring in to Dream Beach for drinks and ‘dos, guests sampled the brand’s new hair mist, which comes in two fragrances: Eau rose, a vibrant floral scent with notes of lychee, centifolia, and damask rose, and eau de sens, a light, citrus orange blossom scent. Diptyque showed us a few small secrets to achieve the perfect braid and stay fresh during these hot summer days.
Their number one tip starts at the beginning. Just after you wash your hair, be sure to rinse it with cold water. This strengthens the capillary fibers and allows your hair to more effectively absorb the hair mist, so you’ll be smelling sweet all day. Since the mist is designed to be less strong than personal fragrances, it works well as a summer alternative to harsh perfumes.
Each guest started off by selecting their type of braid, whether or not they wanted a tighter or looser, beachier style, and if they wanted one braid or two. Their hairstylist created beautiful, intricate braids on all hair types: long, short, thick, and thin, proving that the style can work for everyone. If you’re creating your own Diptyque braid at home, be sure to grab a pack of tiny, clear hair ties to eliminate a bulky end of your braid (and hey, Duane Reade is just down the street from us… such convenience!).
The final (and most important) touch? A spritz of their mists. Because what’s a braid without a little extra pizzazz? Guests were gifted with samples, and their latest products can be found at their Bleecker Street location, just a 15-minute walk from Dream Downtown, or online.
Cheers to a fresh summer.
