SDL3Get Blown Away

For ladies seeking a sleek hairdo for their next special occasion, a new blow-dry bar opened Aug. 19 in Corona del Mar in partnership with Alexis Bellino from “The Real Housewives of Orange County.” Social Dry Lounge offers blowouts, hair styling, makeup applications and eyelash extensions, while also featuring local fashion designers like Alexis Couture, BeachCandy swimwear and The White Dress bridal shop. Additionally, a Corona del Mar mom makes one of the salon’s hair product lines, Gloss. The goal is to get the community together, says Keri Dyer, the salon’s social media and marketing director.

Everyone at the salon receives the VIP treatment, which includes a choice of Champagne, wine, coffee or other beverage upon arrival, while an iPad at each station allows patrons to see how their face will look with different styles. Clients also can watch videos of fashion shows (from global runways to ones the lounge has hosted) on the iPads and use apps to buy apparel while stylists wash, condition and coif their hair.
“… It’s the full experience,” Dyer says. “It’s not your typical salon where you’re going to sit there and talk to the stylist.” Other locations are slated to open within the next year above a Wells Fargo branch in CdM (in a space with an outdoor patio), as well as in Santa Monica, Malibu and New York.

Rogers_Past4A Golden Anniversary

Roger’s Gardens celebrates 50 years of operation in 2013, expanding its foundations over time from a local nursery in 1963 to a 6-acre spread of gardens and showrooms for visitors around the world to see and gather ideas from today.

“As a family business, Roger’s Gardens’ mission has always been to bring beauty into the homes and gardens of our community,” co-owner Gavin Herbert Sr. says. “Over these past five decades, we hope we have inspired our visitors and helped them to create their own beautiful spaces.”

The Floral Studio offers popular favorites along with rare varieties that complement any space or event. Spring, Halloween and holiday seasons bring colorful decorations and themed rooms throughout the center, and the space is lit up with more than 1 million lights. Events held every weekend include tastings, exhibits, workshops and seminars. Food trucks also visit the site every Saturday and Sunday. The 50th anniversary celebration launches Oct. 4 with the Christmas boutiques opening, and continues through March 2014. (949-640-5800; rogersgardens.com) —J.C.
