Glide for rent!

I decided to forgo bringing my CHI to Australia after reading the warning label and advice from most of ya'll that have studied abroad. Life goes on right :)

After arriving to Sydney and dropping our luggage at our hotel, I popped into the lobby restroom to find a straightener very similar to the CHI for RENT! Omg - What a brilliant idea ... Can't wait to review the hotel with this as an added plus as I have never heard of such a thing. $2 would get a minute and a half use, which is plenty for my "kitten" hair. I just can't imagine how many token turns would be necessary for my best friend with her head of hair! LOL!

Has anyone else seen this in the lobby restroom of a hotel? As my cousin shared ... The only downside is getting ready outside of your guestroom.

What a money making idea LOL I have never been abroad so I have never heard of anything like this till you mentioned it today!
LOL
My hair is pin straight....so I guess my problem would be finding a curling iron to work over there!?

That really is a great idea! Have fun!!!

♥Aubrey said...

Brilliant idea!!! But i would however have to pass on the sharing of hair utensils. I'm OCD like that :)- LOL

Hope you're having an AMAZING time hun. I'm sooo jealous that you're in Australia.

Karren said...

That is a GREAT idea! I would be paying a ton to straighten my crazy hair though! haha

Katie said...

whoa!!!! I have NEVER heard of this! what a neat (and sort of strange) idea! :)

Joanna B. @ Newlywed Tales said...

I have NEVER heard of this! It would cost me at least $60 to do my hair and I am being dead serious! I have thick hair like nobody's business! but I am so glad that resolved the CHI issue! Ha! Have a great time! I can't wait to see pics mate!

undomestic chica said...

So jealous you're in Australia! That's a pretty ingenious idea.

Newlywed and Decorating said...

That is a great idea!! Although I'm probably more like your best friend and two minutes wouldn't get me too far. Hope you're having fun!

Tamara Nicole said...

How cool! Have fun girly, super jealous:-)

Crazy Shenanigans said...

That's great! I've never seen one of those!

Cheryl said...

must say that is a first for me....how clever!!!
Could not see myself using it though....plus it takes way too long to get my hair straight!

Ashley Auld said...

That is awesome!! :)

Bobbi said...

What a great idea! Too bad it doesn't give you a longer time frame though.

Lindsay said...

This is awsome! Hope you are having a great time!

Chardonnay said...

That would cost me $30 to straighten my whole head of hair. Yikes! I guess it would be worth it if I just needed to do my crazy bangs!

Jax said...

OHMYGOSH that's freaking awesome!

Bonnie said...

Ehr, I'm not sure I would like using an iron that someone else has. Is it just me!?! That is pretty cool though if I was DESPERATE after a rain storm!

Tiffany said...

That is so cool! I however, would be so broke from using the "Glide," that I wouldn't have money for the vacation! I got some thick, curly hair!!! lol

Amanda said...

Since I am living in Italy right now and travel to a lot of different places, that would be a bonus to any hotel!!

Brie said...

That's a new one! I have really thin "kitten" hair too so that would be a heck of a deal!

Candice Pair said...

Thats a fabulous idea! Now, it would probably cost me about 30 a day with all my hair, but it would be well worth the price!

Mateya said...

Interesting concept. Not sure if I would use it though beings I have no clue who else has been using it...eww!

Lauren said...

OMG that is AMAZING!!!

Sammy said...

How nifty is that!

Hope you are having a blast in the land down under! :)

Jenn @ WestSacHoney said...

Holy moly! That's amazing!

Sarah said...

what a money-maker! that's crazy, but very sensible!!

Kristin said...

WOW this is awesome!! Never seen this before!!

Shelby Bukhenik said...

That's pretty fabulous! It looks similar to the chi!

It might kind of freak me out that it has touched so many people hair, but that one looked like it was in pretty good condition.

Rachael said...

Brilliant! might have to start a similar service in Seattle!

Dani @ OK, Dan said...

Oh my good god, I would go broke on that machine. It takes FOREVER to straighten this mess o curls I have. But that IS an awesome item to have for rent in a hotel. Super cool.

Courtney said...

that's amazing! how awesome!

also, still jealous of the trip! i've always wanted to go to australia!

Neely said...

THATS AWESOME!!!!

Ashley said...

that is a cool idea..but the only thing is I wouldn't want to use a flat iron that everyone else uses you never know what's going on in someone else's hair !! I am just a germaphobe !!

Cassie said...

What a great idea! I've never heard of something like that!
