PALO ALTO GETS ITS SECOND DRY BAR ... It may sound like a place for recovering substance-abusers, but the term "dry bar" refers to hair salons that offer a single service: washing and blow-drying hair.

Customers sit at a bar, and the blow dryers are attached to the ceiling. For $35, stylists wash and blow-dry hair.

Blow-dry salons, which are popping up all over the country, have become a social experience, as the salons now offer parties and bridal showers.
