Holy Crow -- Flat Iron vending machines in NYC Clubs

I just read this article about how these flat irons machines are popular at nightclubs in the UK, and now they're headed here. I just think that's insane! Can you imagine how many drunken partiers are going to burn themselves? All for straight hair! So funny.

    They're already available in GB... taken from the Hall of Shame forum:

    Now, I don't straighten my hair even when sober... but I could see myself, roundabout 6 am, thinking that it would be absolutely brilliant to give one of these things a try. Then waking up that afternoon to find myself with half a head of singed hair... :shock:

    ETA: Derr... I just reread the first post and realized you already said it's available in the UK... :P

    some of you might call me crazy but I think this idea is BRILLIANT!!! I remember when I used to go clubbing a lot and I'd straighten my hair and because of the heat in there and me dancing my hair would get all wavy at the front....there were so many times that I wished I had a flat iron on me...there were a few clubs that had blowdryers in the girl's washroom but never flatirons....I think it's an awesome idea...
    Was 3b then I did a soft relaxer and I think I'm now a 3a

    If you read all the way to the third page, there's something I like. The guy says that curls and waves are in this year, but after dancing and getting all sweaty, women will rather look a year out of style than look like a wet rat.

    I love it! Flat-ironed hair is a year out of style! (patting curls happily)
