Heads up! We’ve got the scoop on two contests during October that are sure to catch your attention. Getting a few extra bucks or maybe a free blowout? It doesn’t get much better than that.
Drybar’s Buttercup Visits Northeastern: Drybar is opening its first Boston location at 234 Clarendon St. in Back Bay this Friday, Oct. 11. To celebrate, Buttercup, a 13-foot working version of its mascot, is making its way around Boston and is stopping right on Northeastern’s campus on Thursday, Oct. 10 between 9:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Take a picture with Buttercup and upload it to Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag, #DrybarBoston, and you may be one of five winners selected for a free blowout. After all, Drybar is all about “no cuts, no color, just blowouts.”
Trendly’s Boston Greatest Fashion Buyer: Trendly is looking for Boston’s greatest fashion buyer while simultaneously giving you an opportunity to make some extra cash. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by Oct. 17, explaining who you are, why you want to take part, and why you can win. If you qualify, Trendly will give you $500 to buy women’s attire to resell online. Any profit is yours to keep and the resale value will determine the rankings of the buyers. If interested, visit Trendly for more details.
