The gal in need of a single process stat will think Fusion Color Bar is to “dye” for. The innovative new salon located in Westchester, New York, features DIY blow dry stations and offers to send you home with custom-blended color if you don’t have time to sit with one of their “coloristas.”

If you can't find a salon as accommodating, approach your stylist about at-home color, or ask to use the salon's blow dryers to dry your own hair.
