Touch Up And Go
The next time you see a party girl spend a suspicious amount of time in the ladies’ room, don’t get the wrong idea; it might just be some on-the-spot hair straightening that’s put a new spring in her step. Coming soon to a club near you: the Beautiful Hair Styler by Beautiful Vending, a self-sterilizing GHD flat iron that mounts on a bathroom wall. Available across the pond since 2005, the unit was recently adapted for the United States and has already been installed at the Hard Rock and the Rain Palms in Vegas. Next up will be after-dark hangouts like Pacha and Touch in New York. Two dollars will get you two minutes to fix that cowlick, or you can insert a Lincoln for five minutes of styling bliss. (One can only hope that the Beautiful Hair Styler will make its way into men’s rooms as well to further serve the hordes of dudes who now rock the Bieber.) Of course, handling a scorching hot iron when you’ve thrown back a few too many may be more of a hazard than sporting a messy coif, but we leave that to your discretion.
