    “My NYFW Wake up trick is a blow out from Dream Dry salon. They open at 6:30 a.m., which gives me time to get my hair fix before running to the office. Their blowouts leave me looking as if I’ve gotten 5 more hours of sleep than I actually did.” – Gillian Sagansky, Assistant to the Editor in Chief
