I’m a notorious over-packer. And when it comes to filling my suitcase, an extra pair of heels always seems to take precedence over a hair dryer. Problem is, I immediately regret this decision when I get to the hotel, check in, and find that ubiquitous, awful, 80s-style dryer that hangs in many a guest room. You know, the one that that leaves your locks parched and lifeless. One hotel that’s solving this packing problem: Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC, the first luxury hotel to outfit guest rooms with a “Glamour Bar,” starting today.

This fantastic new take on the hotel minibar means an arsenal of premium beauty and hairstyling products at your disposal, plus salon-quality straightening irons and hair dryers, and a custom-made vanity mirror (à la Hollywood dressing rooms) to ensure your look is on point.

Each Glamour Bar will also feature a menu of products for purchase, including: Melted Long Wear Lipstick, Chocolate Soleil Medium Matte Bronzer, and more by Too Faced; SPF 33 and 55 Continuous Mist and Airbrush Auto Bronzing Mist by Hampton Sun; Apres Beach Wave + Shine, Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse, Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil, and Crème For Style by Oribe; and Death Valley Dry Shampoo and Outer Space Flexible Hairspray by R + Co.

Now, the only dilemma will be which ones to test first.
