On-Demand Beauty-Service App GlamSquad Partners with Dyson [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
If you've wanted to try Dyson's revolutionary new Supersonic hair dryer but don't have an extra $400 to shell out for it, you're in luck. GlamSquad, the on-demand beauty-service app that serves L.A., New York City and Miami, now exclusively offers blowouts using the space-y looking, state-of-the-art dryer. "No stone has been left unturned when it comes to the innovative design and manufacturing of the Dyson dryer," said GlamSquad creative director Giovanni Vaccaro. "This blow dryer is heat-controlled, which prevents extreme heat damage; it’s quiet, which is important for GlamSquad since our beauty professionals are in clients’ homes, hotel rooms and offices, and I believe this dryer allows for quick dry time, so you are in and out."

Much like posting a #TBT photo of your Sunday brunch on Instagram, Style.com is tapping the very recent past for a new nostalgia collection. The London-based site, which is still technically under construction in the U.S. but very much shoppable in the U.K., is re-releasing Vetements' first-ever collection from way back in 2014. In honor of the partnership, Vetements also relaunched its website to look like its old, pre-Conde-Nast-takeover website.
